Since graduating from the Berklee College of Music's program, Will Ripley has been touring, performing and recording with actual rockstars (Members from Jethro Tull, David Bowie & Rev Theory to name a few).
With several acclaimed guitar lesson video courses, Ripley's become a popular guitar instructor. Known for his straight-forward, easy to understand teaching style, Will's helped thousands of students all over the world play their favourite songs and styles.
In the "1960s Rock Guitar Song Collection", Ripley breaks down 50 iconic tracks complete with everything that made the 1960s the most famous decade for music. You'll discover chord strumming, switching chords, hot licks, huge riffs and how to integrate it all into your playing.
Will Has Helped Thousands Of Guitar Students Of All Ages.
Will Ripley might be the perfect teacher to help you start rocking fast. He's developed guitar systems that have been effective with thousands of people.
Also, he's a successful musician in my own right and has performed for up to 10,000 people while touring and sharing the stage with notable rock stars.
But also, check out what Will has to say about his teaching philosophy:
"I think the biggest thing that separates as a teacher is that not only have I tapped into actual rock star experiences, but I'm also a slow learner. So it was a really long, hard road for me when I was learning guitar and learning these techniques. I was just like, man! If I were to teach these techniques theory and styles, I would change the approach A LOT. So that's how I've developed a lot of my teaching. My teaching strategies are based around breaking things down so that it's as easy to attain as possible. People are often really grateful for that breakdown that I give them. So it's just about bridging that gap between a beginner and tapping into those awesome rock 'n' roll vibes. I think I can bridge that gap pretty easily and I've proven my teaching effectiveness with thousands of guitarists."
It Doesn't Matter What Kind Of Guitar And Amp You Have... Let's Do This!
Introducing The "1960s Rock Guitar Song Collection."
Let me get right to the point here: Will Ripley, (the founder of Campfire Guitar Star) has recorded truly epic set of lessons (almost 8 hours worth of material) that goes DEEP and teaches you how to play 50 of the best songs ever from the 1960s.
Will is clear in his teaching, easy to learn from, easy to listen to... gives you the right stuff to play, and his teaching has been mega-effective with literally thousands of students.
He goes into all the detail on every song, gives you the easy step-by-step instructions and easy to read chord charts.
Our Approach With This 1960s Series: Learn Some Amazing Songs While Mastering The Guitar At The Same Time. In the 60s, the birth of rock 'n' roll gave rise to heavy metal, blues rock, and a lot of other cool stuff. It's all here and this collection gives you a huge range of ability just by working through the songs. There's blues... there's rock... there's new chords... there's soloing...
In fact, there's a whole gamut of rock guitar techniques that are totally baked into the songs within this program. I'm talking chords to licks to riffs and everything in between.
Play The Music You Loved Listening To Growing Up... Just imagine yourself tapping into the techniques you heard on the radio when you were growing up. Maybe you were a kid when you first started hearing this stuff -- I'm talking about the music you've heard your entire life...and now you're actually going to be able to figure out these techniques, these songs and styles...and play them on the guitar yourself.
How cool is that? For me, this kind of discovery is super freakin exciting!
Who Said You Have To Wait Years To Sound Great?
Play Huge Range Of Songs...
You're gonna love the huge range of songs here. For instance, "On the Road Again" by Canned Heat. The guitar part on that song is incredibly simple. It's like a one-string riff. So that song is perfect for a total beginner, but there's other songs like the one from Otis Redding song where there's a funky rhythm and various chords and stuff. That would be great for an intermediate guitar player. And then there's songs that are more advanced, too.
There are certain songs, "Voodoo Child" for instance, with some really easy parts but also some elements that are advanced and challenging. Not to sound cliche, but "there's something for everyone here".
