The relentless pursuit of tone is a journey brimming with the discovery of gear, electronics and chops. This Premier Clinic section focuses on the latter with a continuing series of lesson plans across blues, rock, jazz, fingerstyle and special techniques.
Crafted with our friends at TrueFire
and powered by their massive library of top-notch educational content, Premier Clinic lessons are presented with a variety of lesson assets including text overviews, video lessons, rhythm tracks, notation and Power Tab, all of which are available online.
This month we continue our lesson plans designed to beef up your country, rock and jazz chops, along with a special arrangement for all of our fingerstyle players.
