In this advanced course our fantastic tutor Dion takes you through all the theory, scales and technique Joe Bonamassa uses to create his distinctive fast runs and beautiful melodies!

  • You Snooze You Blues
    In this unit we start with a classic upbeat blues rock solo that will help you join your pentatonic shapes across the neck, expand your blues vocabulary, and help you decipher what is happening in those epically fast pentatonic scale runs.

  • Talkin' Tenths
    In our second unit we have another Bonamassa style solo for you, but this time we dial in on the Eric Johnson influenced licks that Bonamassa has absorbed so beautifully into his playing, in particular using 10ths.

  • Blue Gin
    It’s time to take a detour from our epic soloing skills, and take a look at Bonamassa’s impressive ability to create catchy blues/rock riffs. In this track we will learn how you can use your pentatonic scale, blues chords and even chromatic ideas to create a catchy rock masterpiece!

  • Whiskey Blues
    In this track we take a look at a classic 12/8 style slow blues. This style of blues is where Joe Bonamassa really flexes his blues muscles, and has produced some of the most exciting, moreish and fully loaded guitar solos we’ve ever heard.

  • Stormy Blues
    For our final track, we are bringing it all together! We take a classic Bonamassa style blues-rock ballad and write a solo to die for! It includes all of Bonamassa’s phrasing, technique, speed and incredible pentatonic skills.
