The first solo is a well composed insight into this style of Major Blues playing. It's a keeper ! I also found the backing track a great pad for exploring any chord voicings I already have, as well as learning the technique you have used. I have not progressed to the next solo but look forward to moving onto it soon, it looks and sound like the goods also.
Thanks Robert !
Very good step by step with easy to follow slow down to see finger positioning which is crucial for beginners..and much better than some sites using pdf file tab where a second window needs to be opened.. Robert , I enjoy your lessons and the software and want to let you know I'm grateful. Thank you for sharing also will highly recommend what you are teaching me too!
Thanks for another super lesson. I love that you include a full speed and half speed jam track to work with. The Guitar Pro files have also been really useful to me in getting this down. I think I now have the Rhythm and Solo 1 down. Solo 2 is a bit more of a challenge. I am really looking forward to getting Solo 2 down. It really is a fun and enjoyable piece to play. Yeah, this lesson really got MY mojo working.
Touch, tone, timing and expression is the important emphasized keys always placed on playing great guitar and here Robert has definitely covered this in spades on his "Got Some MOJO Working" course!! Robert truly works it whilst channeling some super classic sounds of Hendrix, Bo Diddley and even rockabilly. Nobody wants to sound ordinary soloing on guitar and here Robert Renman shows us how to groove plus understand what we're doing and why it all sounds so cool! I especially love Solo 2 which features killer licks plus expansive concepts so we can even branch off into our very own creative direction and have a blast doing this!
I often describe Robert's lessons as fun and funky well thought out and this one's no exception....my confidence on guitar soloing shot sky high once I worked through this great lesson and just as important as learning seamless cool licks is the understanding we get from Robert's great direction. He really cares that we get it.........and that's why I'm thrilled I got this course!!
This Mojo is Working for Me! Robert takes a blues standard that you’ll find at the open jam and presents a fun and engaging trip into rhythm and solo riffing that will raise the bar on your playing skills and get the bar room hopping. Mojo working has been covered by blues greats including Muddy Waters, and this lesson will get your Mojo Working, too.
Pick up the essential rhythm in major progressions with each chord voiced in Dominant 7 and 6th accents to create funky movement and Robert explains it all, step-by-step, from I-IV-V bar chords in upbeat and backbeat patterns, to muting and slides - this lesson covers a huge swath of blues skills but is never overwhelming. Got Rhythm? You will have it in your veins and tapping out your toes after being drawn into the Mojo magic.
As an advanced intermediate player, I find Robert’s two step lead lessons as providing a healthy dose of foundation that pulls you up to take on the advanced solo with confidence and conviction. Both solos cleverly employ so many necessary skills: pentatonic scale patterns, bends with purpose a point, double stop runs, and following the chord changes. The finesse and aggressive turns fill your skills so you can turn this into a voice of your own. I have returned to this lesson and all the elements regularly to reinforce all these great elements in my vocabulary and just to rock out on a jamtastic tune. Thanks for another great lesson, Robert!
