Learn blues guitar with The Stranglers' ex-guitarist, John Ellis. A super Christmas gift for that guitar loving husband or brother.
Anyone wanting to master the blues guitar couldn’t get instruction from a more knowledgeable source.
In this immersive lesson, John will teach you common chord sequences for a 12-bar blues tune and show you how to play the blues in the most important keys.
Get to grips with hammer-ons, pull-offs, slides, whams and turnarounds, palm muting and chugging – and that’s just for starters. During the last part of the session, entitled 'Putting it all together', you'll have the chance to jam with John and play a couple of classic blues pieces.
The class is aimed at beginners, but the more you know the more you're likely to get out of it. At the very least, you should already be able to play a basic scale and the following chords: E, A B7, G, C, D.
HAPPY CUSTOMERS: "I had a wonderful time at the workshop on Saturday – as I said to John, it was truly inspirational!"

I found John Ellis to be an encouraging teacher in the room, and then inspiring me to go on and try and get as good as i can be at home"
