Play Song: Action Over Words

Now it's time to play through our song with the band. I highly encourage you to just watch and listen a few times before you start playing along yourself.

I hope you've had a lot of fun learning the classic blues riff, and I really hope you've taken my advice on not getting too hung up on all these definitions. Outside of the world of classical music, so much of the music we have was made by people who weren't schooled in a traditional way, so rule-breaking and non-conformity is a part of the design.

Then add to that a bunch of other non-schooled guitar players and teachers talking about that music and you can see how the language can end up getting confusing and inconsistent. But just remember to always come back to the sound, rather than getting caught up in pointless definitions and you'll be fine.

Questions & Answers

I really enjoy these jam sessions . But basically imo would be better without the vocals so can hear and focus on the instruments and rhythm better . At least for these beginner classes . Just my opinion . 5 months ago
