The Edgar Winter Album
If you had told Tim when he was 12 years old that Edgar Winter would be coming around to his home to record an album dedicated to his brother, the late great Johnny Winter, he would have freaked out....BUT, that's exactly what happened. The album features the likes of Joe Bonamassa, Billy Gibbons, Steve Lukather and various guitar luminaries, but Tim is the guitar 'glue' on this project and that's an important role on any album. In this episode, Tim shows us some Johnny Winter inspired riffs and talks about the profound effect Johnny had on his playing in his formative years.
Griff Hamlin Lessons: Practicing Your Scales To End On Beat One
Most folks, when practicing scales, start playing on beat 1 and play through the scale... And while that makes sense academically, it often doesn't make sense musically :( There are 2 reasons: 1) you don't want to start your licks on beat 1, so maybe not starting your scales on beat 1 will help you get used to that. And 2) if you're playing a scale, like a mode, that might lead your ear to a note other than the root, not having the root land on beat 1 is rather - unsettling... or unsatisfying at the least. Watch the video... easier to show that tell :)
Griff Hamlin: Blues Guitar Lesson - Expanding The Fretboard With A Simple Blues Lick Moved All Over
If you play blues guitar solos, you probably know good old "box 1" but that gets you really used to looking at the world from the right. Instead, let's look at the world to the left of the root, it's there and it can be a wonderous place full of music and mystery ;)
Griff Hamlin Lessons: Strumming Double Time - G Cadd9 Em7 D
While I realize this is Blues Guitar Unleashed.... I'd be doing you a disservice if I didn't talk about something that is important for guitar playing no matter what style you play. This strumming and rhythm technique is HUGELY important, and the most important part is (you guessed it) how you COUNT it and tap your foot to feel the beat in the right way. So watch, play, learn, absorb all good things :)

Griff Hamlin Lessons: How To Play Since I've Been Loving You by Led Zeppelin
Again crossing over onto the "Classic Rock Unleashed" side, we're going to look at the chord progression, and some soloing ideas, from Led Zeppelin's classic, "Since I've Been Loving You." You might think. from just a basic listen, that while it sounds bluesy, it's not really a blues... However, if you don't mind digging into your jazz theory a little, you can actually explain this as a minor 12 bar blues. But even if you don't really care why, it's just fun to play and solo over... and we'll talk a little bit about the pentatonic scales and the modes that you can use.

Griff Hamlin: How To Play Mississippi Queen By Mountain
This is a song I always dug because it's just one of those classic 12 bar blues rock songs that you might not know is just a 12 bar blues at heart. The basic riff is all E Minor Pentatonic Based, while the intro solo is all E Major Pentatonic Based.. And all that goes on around a basic 12 bar blues in E chord progression. Hope you can dig it!

Country trio, Lady A, formally Lady Antebellum is suing Seattle blues artist, Lady A, real name Anita White, over a dispute for the rights to the name.
