What better way to discover your signature sound within the genre of Blues than by learning from one of the UK's finest Blues guitarists, Marcus Bonfanti. Having worked with some of the biggest names in the industry for over 15 years including Ginger Baker, Van Morrison, Ronnie Wood, Dave Gilmore, Nick Mason, PP Arnold and many others, Marcus has garnered several awards and accolades for his contemporary Blues style. An incredibly vital part of forming the musician you will come to be, Marcus uses his knowledge, skills and expertise to give you the tools you need to discover your sonic signature within the world of Blues guitar playing.
Nine lessons of creative expression
Learning your instrument is one thing, mastering it is another and finding your voice and creative expression is a completely different challenge. While you may have all the tools, techniques and music theory knowledge, applying this to 'sound like you' is going to be the hardest thing you can do on your instrument. So, how do you take scales, licks and riffs and turn them into something that's unmistakably your style? Marcus Bonfanti is here to tell you how to do this for all of your Blues guitar playing.
Straying away from giving you 'cut and paste' techniques from existing songs in the world of Blues, you can expect to find a more holistic approach to your soloing and songwriting, taking you from the bedroom to the stage. Comprised of nine detailed and inspiring lessons spanning nearly two hours of video lessons, you will learn how to translate ideas into your songwriting, helping you to convey the emotion you want to put in your Blues music. Of course, Marcus gives you detailed lessons on a wide range of topics to help your dexterity and musical ability such as right and left-hand muting techniques, hybrid picking, chord structure, chord substitutes, rhythm playing exercises and of course soloing techniques.
Take the lessons at your own pace
There is nothing worse than the feeling of being rushed when trying to learn and understand something as deep and complex as music, after all, everyone takes on information at different rates and sometimes online learning platforms provide limited-time-only licenses and subscription services that pressure you into further purchases and more expensive subscription periods. Well, MusicGuru has changed that as with their courses not only do you get the wealth of knowledge from in-the-industry professionals, but you also get lifelong access to your course and all the downloads that come with it. This means you can take the course at your own pace. You'll be able to dip in and out when you please and if you ever feel you need a refresher you can come back to MusicGuru without the need for any further purchases.
MusicGuru can also boast difficulty ratings so you know what you're getting into and advanced video features for the lessons, so if you want to take it back and hear the excerpt again but at a bit of a slower speed, you can! Being compatible with phones, tablets and desktops, you'll be able to learn when you want, where you want, whether that be in front of your instrument at home or just to pass the time whilst commuting on the train, MusicGuru design the courses to work around you, whatever your lifestyle.
