Rockabilly Guitar - featuring Troy Dexter Page Four

Brian Setzer is next with his guitaristic riffs and horn stab riffs. Troy shows us some cool sixth couplings aka harmonic intervals. And then a real sweet slowed down melodic gem that he could have easily done a better job explaining to us. Troy Dang you! 3 Demerits.

Scottie Moore and Jimmie Vaughan rounds out Troy's selection of guitar stylists to analyze and each of them has guitar moves worthy of our attention.

In summation this guitar lesson is worthy. Its sadly on the short side so if money is no object buy it. If money is an object read the other reviews I have about Rockabilly guitar and guitar in general.

If you are a normal, dilettante, so-called guitar player like I used to be with no discipline and no practice schedule and have a clay foot guitar foundation, you aren't ready for this yet. 

If you are more dedicated guitar student and have a don't take no for an answer attitude then you can, with application, reap rewards from this guitar lesson and impress your friends which is what its all about. Guitarists want attention. They need positive feed back.

Learning guitar is hard work! All of us don't have the time and necessary support to practice as much as we perhaps ought and its supposed to be fun some of the time. So we do the best we can!

dil·et·tante/ˌdiliˈtänt,-ˈtäntē/
noun
a person who cultivates an area of interest, such as the arts, without real commitment or knowledge.

Even though Troy doesn't throw a million extended jazz chords at you (thankfully they are in the pamphlet) he does toss us a few choice ones and due to some poor camera work you cant always see where he is on the neck to try to recreate same.

Usually you can see and quite well at that but more than once just when you want it you cant. Still I am glad I own this rockabilly guitar lesson but I really like rockabilly and psychobilly. In fact I like psychobilly more. Also some fingerpicking skills would be really handy to have cultivated.
