The Little Wing Lesson is the lesson series that I developed from my own experience with learning this style of playing and I’ve taught it hundreds of times to my private students.
On the DVD I’ll show you the process of mapping your pentatonic boxes (and don’t worry… if you don’t know the pentatonic boxes they are on there too) to the basic barre chord shapes (and if you don’t know them, I’ve got you covered with those too.)
You’ll be surprised how easy it is to put the two together. You’ve probably never noticed before that a chord has 3 notes and a pentatonic scale has 5. So they are pretty close together already!
You’ll also learn some of the techniques that are common in this style of playing, and there are 2 complete examples where I’ll walk you through how I’ve put the examples into a “song.”
The song examples are actually completely improvised and then tabbed out… and that’s the whole point. When you are done with The Little Wing Lesson you will be able to think of any chord progression from any song that you know, and play it in this cool “Little Wing” style.
That means you can sit down any time, anywhere, pick up a guitar, think of 4 chords, and start to play. No one will know you are making it up on the spot as you go. It will sound like you “own it.”
And yes, when we are done you’ll have absolutely no trouble learning Hendrix or SRV’s version of Little Wing if you choose to. Like I said before, you would have a hard time not stumbling upon the exact notes and phrases that were used in those famous recordings when you start experimenting with this style of playing.
