Airmail; Musical Personalities; 2ble-Stop Licks

charlie christian airmail special solo lesson

My Charlie Christian lessons have been some of the most popular (Seven Come Eleven, Rose Room). I emailed those who purchased the Bonus Packages for those lessons and asked which others they might be interested in. One that got the most votes was Airmail Special. So, I figured out that solo and made a lesson on it. Needless to say, the guy was a freaking prodigy! (I’ll try to get to another one in a month or two.)

The Twelve Cool Dudes
I’d been wanting to make a lesson like this for a while and finally got to it. I guess some people are a bit intimidated by “music theory,” but, to me, it’s the only way to think about music. This lesson introduces you to how each of the twelve notes (or “intervals”), has it’s own “personality,” or feeling that doesn’t change, no matter what key you’re in. It’s about the most useful way I know of to think about sound.

Lickity Lick
I’ve also been wanting to do a series of shorter video lessons on licks for solid body guitar players. I tried to come up with a clever name, like “Quick Licks” or “Minit-Lix.” But I finally gave up and just starting filming to see what came out. Well, it looks like they are a bit longer than I envisioned. But no matter. I realized I already had a category called “Licks and Lines,” which is good enough. The first one is maybe more of a “technique” than a lick (which is hard to define, anyway). I call it the “Dual-Use Double-Stop Stretch!”

Take care,
