ALL THE JERRY GARCIA "Cumberland" LESSONS offered together at a 25% discount price!

You will get the three "Cumberland Blues" lead guitar lessons all in one place--Country Blues, Country Shred, and Country Major, PLUS the Cumberland Blues Jerry Garcia Rhythm guitar lesson, offered at a 25% discount versus buying them separately. This bundle includes FOUR complete lessons, featuring shining examples of Jerry Garcia's creativity and technical ability.

Country Blues features a first verse solo combining elements of country and blues guitar, executed with Garcia's typical attention to phrasing, motif, and variation.

Country Shred offers up some of Garcia's trademark shred licks at three different positions on the neck in this second verse solo. You'll learn how to play them, how they work, and you'll see how they fit into a well-conceived solo. Jerry's shred has a comic quality to it. It can also be very intricate-sounding and rhythmic. And it's got BALLS. Fun stuff.

Country Major is an example of the last solo in Cumberland, where the sound gets a little sweeter than the first two solos. You'll pick up some pretty cool licks, and study great examples of how Garcia used variation--permutation--to take a few ideas and weave them into a complete solo.

Rhythm Lesson features an in-depth look at Garcia's playing on "Cumberland Blues", including two different versions of the intro lick, two different approaches to the verses, his country style approach to the bridge and fourth verse, plus some fill licks and several examples of tag ending licks. This is a double-download lesson.

The lead lessons includes tablature and a jam track mp3--a backing track that you can use to practice soloing.  Each lesson also includes a SLOWED-DOWN video demonstration of the solo, plus a SLOW jamtrack.  Download the bundle today!
