great lesson. can you explain the amp settings?

bsvillelabsvillela replied on April 7th, 2015

Chris, another great lesson! Trying to translate melodies that aren't initially meant to be played in the guitar is a GREAT insight! Fantastic!

Hi chris what a fantastic lesson ! my seven year old daughter thinks I'm the coolest dad in the school ! i go with that ! thanks again big respect

psettaerpsettaer replied on January 12th, 2015

A Quick browse and I can't see if it has been asked, any chance we can get the backing track without the metronome sounds in the section with no drums? I think that we can all count to 4 :)

chrisusacalifchrisusacalif replied on January 3rd, 2015

Chris. In the first bar of guitar intro, is there meant to be a tie between the 4th sixteenth note and the eight note? Thanks

dave_tkd666dave_tkd666 replied on December 21st, 2014

On the down side i've had this fozen song in my head for days and it won't go away:( On the plus side however, I'm new to the site and I've been looking for a great melodic lead to get stuck into and this is a great piece for just that. I reckon a great lesson for relative beginners looking to apply their techniques. Chris, thanks for this great lesson and tab. My niece is gonna love it when I play it for her this xmas

brianmdavisbrianmdavis replied on December 8th, 2014

YOU KILLED IT! I JUST DECIDED TO START YOUR SERIES OF LESSONS! iF I PLAY !Where can I get the backing track for this???? it sounded great!! thank you!!

Hi Chris, I'm new to the site, but not guitar. I'm having trouble getting the bridge part down, do you have any advice? Also, great rendition of the song. Another question, I've never been able to improv like you do in this song, you say to be creative and add your own flavor but I don't really know how. Any lesson from you that handles that? Thanks again.

I like this song:D

wizard1325wizard1325 replied on July 15th, 2014

I cant get pass the first part your making note sounds that i cant see in the video like on the first measure

Chris.LiepeChris.Liepe replied on July 19th, 2014

The guitar does not play anything during the intro. It enters on the verse. Maybe I'm mis understanding your observation. Can you elaborate?

kooshkoosh replied on July 13th, 2014

Chris, this is amazing. I have 25 years of playing, but have been stuck in blues rock. What lesson set/style gets the chops to this level?

Chris.LiepeChris.Liepe replied on July 14th, 2014

Glad you enjoyed the lesson! There are two avenues I would recommend pursuing: First, you'll get a good handle on a lot of concepts and techniques I used in the playing demonstrated here by taking my phase 2 series on Rock guitar. Here's a link to the intro lesson:

The second thing I would do is regularly figure out melodies that were not originally meant for guitar. Learn some horn lines, study different vocalists, play string parts. There is NOTHING better for your phrasing and musical expression. Check out this song lesson where I came up with a guitar solo by listening to horn and sax parts:

For me it has always been a blend of being 'in shape' technique and theory-wise AND constantly filling my head and fingers with new musical experiences. I hope this helps!

AaronMillerAaronMiller replied on July 14th, 2014

This is a great question! I'll let Chris answer this one though.

AaronMillerAaronMiller replied on July 8th, 2014

Fantastic job Chris!

Chris.LiepeChris.Liepe replied on July 8th, 2014

The backing track is now available :) I wanna see a youtube video of someone playing this!!

Chris.LiepeChris.Liepe replied on July 7th, 2014

thanks for all the comments guys! just to preclude what might come up (I don't remember if I covered this in the lesson or not) My signal chain is as follows:

My strat > 11R > Gray Comp - [email protected] 8 o'clock, level @12 o'clock >Green JRC OD - overdrive @ 9 o'clock, level @ 2 o'clock. > AMP: '98SL100 Crunch. ODs all the way up, EQ flat, Presence Off > Dynamic Delay sync @ quarter note, stereo width 74%, mix 27%, no mod. > Stereo Reverb: wood room, .7 decay, 6.4 tone, mix 1.9 > CAB: 4x12 green 25w with DYN 409 off axis, with a touch of speaker breakup.

maybe this translates well in to your own rigs. Any questions... let me know!!

About Chris Liepe View Full Biography Chris Liepe was born on September 17th, 1981 in Portland OR. His first instrument was piano which he pursued until discovering his love for the electric guitar in high school. He became fans of such groups as Soundgarden, Collective Soul and U2 inspiring him to start singing, songwriting and helping others in their musical endeavors with teaching, co-writing and album production.

Having moved to Colorado with his family, he began gigging, recording and teaching in a number of music stores as well as out of his apartment until deciding to pursue music full time. He moved to Denver, CO to complete a Bachelors in Music Technology and was then hired on by Sweetwater Productions, a division of Sweetwater Sound and one of the largest, most successful recording studios in the Midwest.

Chris spent nearly 4 years at Sweetwater as a producer, recording engineer, studio musician and writer. During this time he had the privilege of working with many artists including Augustana, Landon Pigg, Jars of Clay, and Mercy Me. He also wrote for and played on numerous independent albums and hundreds of radio/TV commercials.

Wanting to get back to his favorite State in the world (Colorado) and feeling the urge to 'go freelance', Chris moved to Greeley, CO and opened his own recording and teaching studio. He continues to write and produce music for artists and agencies and is happy to be among the proud instructors.

"I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar!"

I am 66 years young and I still got it! I would have never known this if it had not been for Jamplay! I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar! Ha! I cannot express enough how great you're website is! It is for beginners and advanced pickers! I am an advanced picker and thought I had lost it but thanks to you all, I found it again! Even though I only play by ear, I have been a member a whopping whole two weeks now and have already got Brent's country shuffle and country blues down and of course with embellishments. Thank you all for your wonderful program!

"With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace"

I'm a fifty eight year old newbie who owns a guitar which has been sitting untouched in a corner for about seven years now. Last weekend I got inspired to pick it up and finally learn how to play after watching an amazing Spanish guitarist on TV. So, here I am. I'm starting at the beginning with Steve Eulberg and I couldn't be happier (except for the sore fingers :) Some day I'm going to play like Steve! I'm self employed with a hectic schedule. With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace, rewinding and replaying the videos until I get it. This is a very enjoyable diversion from my work yet I still feel like I'm accomplishing something worthwhile. Thanks a lot, Greg
