Guitar Week 4

Week 4 article.

‘Good morning, afternoon, or evening!  The first video we looks at a tasty Dorian inspired Steve Lukather Style lick.

Then we will be  looking at pentatonic runs and making up patterns. Given the repetitive nature of these patterns, they lend themselves well to being played fast, as your fingers can learn the pattern fairly quickly; a lot of the fast runs you hear Joe Bonamassa play are repetitive pentatonic patterns . As always, start off slow and build up speed gradually. The examples here are to be used as a springboard for you to come up with your own runs. https://vimeo.com/224822361

Joe Bonamassa style Pentatonic Lick from London Guitar on Vimeo.


All of these examples are in the first position of the D minor pentatonic scale.

Guitar Great Carlos Santana

True guitar great Carlos Augusto Alves Santana (born July 20, 1947) is a guitar genius of Mexican and American roots. At guitar lessons London we love Santana…he became famous in the late 1960s and early 1970s with his band, Santana, which pioneered rock, Latin music and blues rock. The band’s sound featured his melodic, blues-based guitar lines set against Latin and African rhythms featuring percussion instruments such as timbales and congas not generally heard in rock music.During our guitar lessons @ London Guitar Academy we love to play Smooth and other Santana guitar classics

Rock Guitar


Almost Famous is a 2000 comedy-drama film written and directed by Cameron Crowe, telling the coming-of-age story of a teenage journalist writing for Rolling Stone magazine while covering a fictitious rock band named Stillwater. The film is semi-autobiographical, as Crowe himself had been a teenage writer for Rolling Stone.


It’s the most convincing account yet of what rock and roll felt like to the people backstage as it turned from a movement into a career. Those who were there will love the detail.
