40-Day Rhythm Guitar SWAT CAMP
We've been amazed at the progress in our playing around the offices of Guitar.com since we started digging into the amazing lesson material from our friends at Truefire.com. Check out their latest CD-ROM compilation below -- and don't forget to sample the audio links!!!!! Also, you'll get $10 in free lesson downloads (choose from hundreds of great lessons) when you visit Truefire and register to become a member. Now hear this:
Ask any instructor worth their salt and they'll tell you that students struggle more with rhythm than any other technical element of the instrument. Ask any pro and they'll tell you that the most sought after studio players are known mostly for the quality and range of their rhythm chops. Ask any band looking to fill the guitar slot and they'll tell you it's the solid rhythm player they're interested in, not the lead pyrotechnician. And that's why we asked an esteemed group of TrueFire instructors to come up with a surefire method to help players pump up their rhythm chops in a hurry. Their answer? The 40 Day Rhythm Guitar SWAT Camp -- a quick-study power course for intermediate and advanced players.
No question about it -- learn how to play solid rhythm guitar and you'll no longer have problems finding quality cats to play with. And we're not talking learning chord construction, inversion theory, or picking up a few new fancy barre chords. We're talking chordless comping, working bass lines, Hendrixian styling, double and triple stops, open tunings, Delta style, dual-guitar harmonies, twang thangs, swung grooves, chord melody, funkification and a truckload of other tricks and essential techniques. It's all covered in the SWAT Camp along with a classic repertoire of signature rhythm stylings a la Hendrix, Muddy, Elmore, Townshend, Keith, Hooker, Eagles and even Curtis Mayfield.
The 40-Day Rhythm Guitar SWAT Camp is designed for players that are anxious for a break-through but simply don t have enough time to woodshed eight hours a day or give up their day gig to enroll full-time at Berklee (although that would be sweet). The SWAT Camp features a series of 40 lessons, arranged in a deliberate manner to be studied over 40 consecutive practice sessions. You can skip a day here and there but it's real important to grasp each lesson's key learning before moving on to the next one in the series. The SWAT Camp will invigorate your rhythm chops and make you twice the player you are today.
SWAT Camp is a collaboration of 27 of the planet's top guitar instructors. The lessons are formatted in MP3 (audio) and PDF (tab), and come on CD. You do not need to read music. You do not need to understand theory. If you've got decent ears and can follow simple tab then you're good to go. SWAT Camp's audio lessons include slow and at-tempo versions of examples plus instructor commentary to get you through the sticky stuff.
Here's what some of our students have to say about SWAT Camp:

||Hmmm...so, you get 39 days and two bonuses beyond all you really need. Not bad.
||Well, I don't see Glenn Frey on that list, so they're not getting MY money!
||The Eagles are, next to U2, the most overrated, talentles group of losers I can think of. If you love Glenn Frey so much, watch re-runs of Miami Vice ,as he was on the "Smuggler's Blue" episode. Please wear a pink linen shirt and white trousers as you arouse yourself to Mr. Frey!
Joe Walsh is a damn good player . Plus ,he was born in Wichita Kansas , which is not too far from your Joey .
Plus , Joe is a friend of Pete Townshend ..............................so there !
||I detest the Eagles! I detest them like a fucking sickness! Ya hear me? A fucking sickness!!!
Sick venal, someday a real rain will come and wash the scum Eagles fans off the streets . . .

||Their lead guitarist looks like a cock! What more needs to be said?
