I held an online guitar workshop in November, and the four sessions are up on RonBlock.com, along with two bonus lessons (two more to be added soon). I've shared the elements of guitar playing that have made my lead guitar solos and rhythm a mainstay of Alison Krauss & Union Station for 29 years. Intermediate to advanced.
Topics: Roots and Inflluences - Bill Napier, Larry Sparks, and Clarence White to piano, Bill Monroe, and electric guitar players. We'll move on into some of my solos in a bonus lesson but at the front end we'll look into some of the players that helped create my style.
The Psychology of Playing Well (this is incredibly important)
Right and Left Hand Technique
Tone - Timing - Taste
How I Learned and Continue to Learn the Neck
Make Solos More Moving with Expression
Make Solos More Engaging with Intervals ("doublestops")
Playing the Melody: The Many Ways to Vary a Solo.
And I'll add more before the starting date.
Plus these freebies and more: Downloads of A Light So Fair: Peaceful Guitar Instrumentals; my Hogan's House of Music instrumental record (I took quite a few guitar breaks on it); a pdf of my Traditional Guitar Workbook with my personal tabs of George Shuffler, Larry Sparks, Bill Napier, Don Reno, Clarence White, and Junior Blankenship. These freebies alone are worth about $47.
When signing up, you'll get a download link for Hogan's House of Music. I'll send you A Light So Fair: Peaceful Guitar Instrumentals, and you'll get an email with a Dropbox link and information for the rest of it.
