The ZZ Lessons
In the early days before FretHub was born, Nick stumbled upon a Logic plugin that sounds a bit Gibbonsy. Barely able to contain his excitement, he knocked up a track in the style of La Grange by ZZ Top and with a fairly primitive camera filmed himself soloing along. Since then we have received many requests to teach this random Gibbonsesque solo so here is the original solo and backing track below. The following lessons should help you to play along and provide you with some tricks to make a similar noise to this one! Have fun…..
1. Modes of The Major Scale – Introduction
Over the following lessons, Nick and Bobby break down the theory and applications of the Modal System step by step, giving you plenty of demo solos to inspire you, encouraging you to play along with the 7 backing tracks and come up with your own ideas. Later, Bobby and Nick show you how to incorporate pentatonic scales into your modal playing, giving you even more possibilities when soloing.
