Here's a course that will open the door to bluegrass, country and Celtic music for you.
This will give your skills a huge boost and show you a world of new possibilities!
You will learn some chugging rhythms, some useful scales and how to warm up with them as a starting point.
Then you will see how we can take impossibly fast music, slow it down and learn to play it.
This will be a fun and exciting challenge and your playing will come on leaps and bounds!
There is a backing track so you can practice at three different speeds in lecture 5. It has one minute at a slow speed, one minute at a medium speed and, you guessed it, one minute at a fast pace (75% of the original Buddy version)
