Blues Masterclass Students Killing It!

BLUES MASTERCLASS STUDENTS ARE ALREADY KILLIN' IT! 


Here's Bob Figlo - He sent this to my email about 3 days after he purchased the Blues Masterclass Lessons! I'm always SO Proud when someone actually DOES THE WORK and digs in!

Here's the 1st SOLO


Here's the 2nd SOLO! He Totally NAILS it! 



Here's What's Inside Doug Seven's Blues Masterclass Total Guitar Package;

DVD 1 – The Blues Masterclass Modules Training (21 Full Solos/Instrumentals with Complete Lesson at the End of Each Module - ALSO comes With Slow Video Versions of Each Solo For Capturing and Perfecting Your Technique)

DVD 2 – 5 Minute Domination Exercises Videos (One-on-One "Private Lesson Style" Exercises. With Doug as Your Personal COACH - Doug Takes You By The Hand, and as You Practice Together, He Shows You (at your own pace) What To Work on In REAL-TIME

CD-ROM – Companion CD/Tabs and Real-Band Backing Tracks (Your Tabs and Masterclass "CHEAT SHEETS" Plus Full Dynamic Practice Tracks With and Without Guitar and in 3 Different Keys Each For Perfect Practice. The Full Solo CD is Included on Your CD-Rom Too)!

I POURED My Heart Into Creating These 21 Solos.
This is NOT Just A Bunch of Licks Thrown Into a Song.

EACH Solo Has a Very Specific Function To SHOW You and Teach You
The Dynamics of Playing Artfully and Soulfully With Precision!

Step by Step, as You Watch These Videos and Learn The Parts, You'll
Notice (as a By-Product) Your Playing and Your MIND Transforming
and You'll Begin To Integrate These Techniques Into Your
Playing Automatically!

You'll Start Playing The Kinds of Leads and Solos You've Always Heard From
MAJOR Players, and You'll Quickly Understand "HOW" They Create Serious
Impact in Their Songs and Music!

• Soulful Melodic Phrasing - You'll be making melodies with your guitar that people like to sing along to. These are the kind of solos that are remembered and "go down in history".

• Playing Against the Grain - You'll know how to change the mood of any song and create a "pattern-Interrupt" with this technique.

• 16th Note Triplets - There's a time and place for using this technique. I'll show you EXACTLY when and more importantly, WHERE to use this  to really make your solos stand out!

• Playing in 'Odd-Timings' - I'll show you an easy way to change your "thinking" about timings and how to really add SPICE to your leads (and rhythms) during your parts.

• Mixing Hybrid, Double and Triple-Stops - This is vitally important. Using these techniques is where you'll start to sound "different" than the rest, and your "typical" blues solos and leads will get NOTICED.

• 16th Note Double-Time Phrasing - This technique is used when you want to PUSH the song into a climactic section and really change things up with the ENERGY and overall FEELING.

• Playing 'Outside-the-Box' - One of the fastest ways to sound advanced is to learn one or two simple note-choices that I'll show you inside every solo!

• Easy Ways to Mix JAZZ into Your Phrasings - You'll quickly see how UN-complicated this really is. It "sounds" hard, but I'll show you EASY TRICKS to add some jazz into your leads and solos.

• Climactic Rhythm Techniques - Want to add some SERIOUS body to your sound and fill up your leads during a solo? I'll show you some SIMPLE but amazingly POWER-RHYTHMS you can easily throw into your songs.

• Mixing Rhythm Within the Phrases - It's so impressive to hear a guitarist that can MIX rhythm into and in between his solos. It creates a variety of coolness. You'll learn exactly when, where and how to do this.

• Adding Bass-Lines to Your Solo Parts - Another great way to enhance your lead parts is to do this trick I'll show you in each module (and in the 5-minute practices) to SPICE up your solo.

• Creative and Unique Bending Techniques - Pre bends, post-bends make EVERY part of your solo more melodic and "voice-sounding". This is a VERY overlooked and underrated technique.

• Movable Chords and Using Triads - You'll learn how to use ALL techniques-in-one by taking rhythm, lead and single phrases to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL with these movable triads and chord shapes I'll show you.

Are you ready to start playing with some serious DYNAMICS and learn INFINITE ways to express your musical language?

Doug Seven Family and YOU Help the Women's Clinic



April 15th 2011 Doug writes...

On April 7th 2011, my wife (Jennifer) and I was told that our baby (at 12 weeks) no longer had a heartbeat and that we were having a miscarriage. To say that we are devastated and overcome by this would be an understatement.

We had to tell our 4 year old boy (Austin) that the baby he had talked to and told stories to was in heaven and not going to be here with us.

"In response to loss, tragedy or injustice of any kind, there's always a hidden opportunity."

The questions that stare you in the face could be, WHAT NOW? Who do I BLAME!?! Who do I FORGIVE? How can I make this pain GO AWAY? How can I STOP this from happening to someone else? You may have different answers, but I know what mine are.

"The measure of sorrow should match the measure of response"

We want YOU to join with us to honor our baby's LIFE and help save other mommy's and daddy's from
experiencing the devastation of losing a precious child. ~Doug and Jennifer

Brad Paisley Simple Guitar Technique Doug Seven

Today's video is a simple demonstration of 1 SIMPLE Guitar Technique that Brad Paisley uses a LOT...

This will easily double or even TRIPLE your speed and execution when working and improving your FAST and clean approach...

Before you watch the video, please take a moment and skim through some of the emails I've been getting since the release of this NEW DVD "Habitual Techniques - The Secret Methods of Guitarists like Brad Paisley"!

This is GREAT!

_________________________________________________  

Hey Doug,

The dvd was so nicely done, a true inspiration. I had been dabbling in this style for a couple of years... More for rock and bluegrassy playing. He uses lots of open string ideas. Bluegrassy meaning, it gives the illusion of speed to country style licks.

Your dvd is an excellent guide for me. Kind of opened a bigger door for much more expansive ideas... Such as combining two scales plus open strings, "the three for one special".

Thank you for keeping the pickin' fun and interesting.
best wishes,
da-no



Doug, This DVD has been a God send.

I’ve been doing each exercise until my fingers can’t go anymore… Then I rest and do it all again. I’ve always wanted to include open strings in my playing and I’ve been playing a long time. Like you said, it doesn’t sound like it belongs when played slow and that’s why I haven’t been able to figure it out before. I believed that it should be correct in theory.But, now I know that when it’s played fast it sounds great. So, this is the secret that has kept me from getting it in the past and for that I thank you so very much.

Sometimes you just need to be shown that it works and the exercises are fantastic.

This is put together so very well and I like that you explained it all in the first video… Then got into the meat of it in the second part and then putting it all together in the 3rd.

Your CD ‘Seven’ is awesome!
Don



Doug - I've only gotten through part of the material. Awesome as always;

You have a great gift for explaining playing concepts in a way that even us old dogs can understand.

Keep 'em coming! 

Best Christmas Wishes to you & family;
Sandy C.



Hi, Doug.
The video is great, and it will for sure change my playing. I have not had enough time to dig properly into it, but I’m practicing the first 8 licks regularly now.

I have to add that of all videos and books I have used over the years, nothing compares to your videos.

They are very inspiring, and your laid-back style when presenting your stuff makes me think that “I can do this!”.

Thank you and a merry x-mas for you and your family.
Best regards,
Jan



Doug, Man it's really rough to find a way to say you can do more (I've got enough stuff here to work on for the next 10 years)

This video is over the top. Just a great job. You're in Brad's hip pocket, you've nailed his runs and technique.


We saw your pedals and amps (the Wampler Brad Paisley will stay on my board), man I'm tellin ya -you've got one monster tone.

Again, Doug thank you for all you've done and may next year bring you more success.

Merry Christmas
Bob B.



Doug
I just sat down this week with the dvds and have been studying the first four licks. Never a concern here, These latest ones will teach some extreme form and finger techniques.

I look forward to getting through the entire vid. Can't wait to see what we have next time.
Steve L.



Hey Doug,
It's great...possibly your best, if such things can be measured.

Merry Christmas,
Matt.



Dear Doug,
I love the new video. It's helping me get closer to the day when I send you my own videos!
I'm getting there, and this and your other videos have helped a lot. Thanks,
Karl



This one is pulling me over the (good) line - Reminded me of forty years ago when I would practice for 4-6 hours and BAM! something would click...

Good job, and the separate picking/fingering section with no voice over is super.
Bob F.



Hi Doug, It's Ken G. from "Down Under" in Australia here.

The package with all the DVDs I ordered arrived a few days ago and I've been looking through them and I just had to write and tell you how absolutely thrilled I am with them.

You've put so much fantastic stuff in these DVDs that I know when I get some of it down I know my playing will improve by leaps and bounds!

Thanks also for all the encouragement you give all of us players by always telling us to take it slow and saying that you also took time to learn these licks.

You always seem so genuine in wanting others to improve their playing and you certainly unlock some of the secrets of mastering the guitar.

Thanks so much again and if you ever get down to Australia please let me know.
Have a "Merry Christmas" and a great New Year. Best wishes,
Ken



Doug - love your stuff. I bought all your Cd's about a year ago, doodled with them a bit, and them put them aside, but still did some of your riffs when I would mess with my guitar, even threw some in some of the rock tunes I was already playing.

But, then, about a week ago, I started the riffs in Playing in Circles..... Put some real time in, and did it SLOW (very important..... as you say).

I played at least 3 to 5 hours a day for the last week.... Fingers permitting. I am now getting it!!! It's awesome.

I'll be posting a vid on Youtube in a month or two once I perfected the jams error free, and will be bragging about your vids.

This is a new dimension in my guitar playing.

Thanks much, Enjoyed seeing Brad Paisley on the CMA Christmas special last night. He's got nothing on you though!!


Doug,
I don't know if you read these or not; but you're vids have made a major impact on my country guitar studies..

Even though I have played professionally for many years, I constantly learn new and wonderful things from you.

You are the best and I thank you...so...returning the wish... Have a great holiday and here's wishing you and you're family are happy and secure this season and well beyond,

Doc



...GOOD LORD Doug!

I really don't know what to say!

Awesome!?

Incredible!?

Fantastic!?

Super, super cool!?

Totally inspirational!?

You are all of these things my friend. Where do you come from, buddy!?

Seriously, come on! I really don't know what to say!

I've been teaching guitar for 20 years and you are you of the most thoughtful/generous teachers that I've ever studied under (you have taught me so much!)

I use YOUR videos and materials all the time and I tell all of my musician friends about you site and tell them... "If you want to become a better guitarist, then get Doug Seven's stuff!"

You humble me, man! And you're a great musician... damn! And a smoke'n guitarist!!!

Thank you so much for EVERYTHING you do for us.

I just had to tell you Doug! It's important that you know that!

God bless you, Doug!

"Doug, this is one of your HUGE fans from Nashville.

You've really inspired me to play again after 20 years of not touching my vintage axes. Been practicing your licks for the last 6 months. Driving my family crazy because I can't put it down... Gettin' way better than I was when I played in a band for years in my 20's. I wish I woulda had somebody explain theory back then the way you do. Your style and sound is my absolute favorite OF ALL TIME"!




Enjoy  The VIDEO

HOT Brad Paisley Guitar Licks - Tab and Backing Tracks

Here's 2 FREE Brad Paisley Guitar Licks on Video with FREE Tabs and Backing Tracks!

Brad Paisley is still one of the hardest guitarists to learn just by ear. Sometimes ya need a little help "seeing" behind his techniques.

His licks are played so darn fast sometimes it's tough to hear the detail...

In "Sizzling Guitar Licks Volume 4" and "Hotter Licks and Killer One-Liners", we break down his technique SLOWLY and competely so that you can incorporate his licks into your own style!


Here's the free Brad Paisley Video with Guitar Tab and Backing Tracks! ENJOY;
