Topic: Learning ZZ Top

 

You can watch the lesson here... HERE.

 

 

I think it's time to celebrate a little band from my home state.... the great ZZ Top!

 

We'll get this month started off by learning a few of their more notable riffs.

 

Looking forward to a great month.

 

I'll post some music when we get closer to the lesson.

 

We will be having some giveaways so make plans to join your guitar family on Oct 4th at 7pm (central). Bring your questions and I'll see you there!

 

Our Ustream channel is here... HERE.

This looks like a lot of fun, Steve.   I just hope Ustream behaves better.

I didn't have any issues with ustream last night, but others did.  Steve has indicated he is working on moving away from ustream.  He is doing some leg work behind the scenes, so stay tuned.

The TrueTone Jekyl and Hyde pedal and I was using both sides of the pedal simultaneously.

Steve,

What does "both sides of the pedal simultaneously" mean?
