Topic: Classic ZZ Top Intros and Jam Tips

 

You can watch the lesson here... HERE.

 

We'll be learning the intro to ZZ Top's classic "La Grange" "Sharp Dressed Man" and "Tush". PLUS I'll be showing some pentatonic patterns that work great for soloing and some jam track tips.

 

We will be referencing several intros.  Here is the music and TAB...

That was a great lesson last night.  If you didn't get to see it live, it is definitely worth watching on Ustream.  Thanks Steve.  You keep us inspired.

Back up now!  Oops, spoke too soon.  The site is up, but the video doesn't load.  Must be part of today's internet mess…

Back up now!  Oops, spoke too soon.  The site is up, but the video doesn't load.  Must be part of today's internet mess…

 

 

I was having the same or similar problems until I discovered something has changed, either on my side or Ustreams.  I believe Ustreams!

 

First a little info:  as I have a very limited data account, I have to set all my "Add-ons" and "Plugins" to "Ask to Activate" or "Never Acivate" as to not use any unnecessary data.  This allows some control of my data usage.

 

My problem was/is the ustream video window had been asking me if I want to activate my "Flash Player" plugin.  Now when the window opens, I could see the "Ask To Activate" appear momentarily, then disappear,  leaving me a useless video window.

 

I almost gave up on the Live Lesson until I noticed the "Ask To Activate" appear momentarily.  Clue?  I set my "Flash Player" to "always on" and reloaded the ustream page, and voila, there was the Live Lesson.  I just have to remember to change back the "plugin" setting when I am finished.

 

Hope this helps...

Steve presents pinched harmonics in this Live Lesson,  as well as the ZZ Top's intro licks and other unique tidbits .  It is another great lesson.

 

Hope you get to watch it.
