      Count me in Griff, I can’t wait to get started with Classic Rock Guitar Unleashed. I have most of your BGU Courses on a windows Tablet (easy to access). I refer to the relevant lessons regularly to improve my weak points. I must complement you on the effort you have put into your documentation, it is the best I have seen with regard to online Guitar Tutors. Keep up the Website, this is a great way of keeping in touch, and downloading our BGU Purchases. Thanks for your dedication. Regards Jonathan UK.

      ONE OF THE MANY SONGS EVERYONE LEARNS TO PLAY.
      IN THE COVER BAND, WE DID STAIRWAY. I PLAYED RTHYUM AND THE INTRO. I ALWAYS WANTED TO LEARN THE SOLO. ARE LEAD GUITAR PLAYER DID USE A WAH PEDAL FOR HIS SOLO WHICH DID NOT SOUND BAD.
      THEN WE GOT A NEW LEAD GUITRAITS, AND HE HATED STAIR WAY TO HEAVEN. SO I WOULD ALWAYS TEASE HIM WITH THE INTRO.
      THANKS GRIIFF, NOW I DON’ T NEED HIS WAY OF PLAYING IT. SAT SIDE STAGE WHEN EVER JIMMY PAGE WOULD PLAY A CONCERT. NEVER GOT TO KNOW HIM, BUT GREAT GUITAR PLAYER.

    Dude, this is exactly what I need to take me to the level of being able to jam/play and hopefully get out front with a band. It’s the missing piece in my guitar journey. I’ve stopped counting the courses I’ve got from you Griff (7 I think at last count)…….shouls be a share holder !!!!!……I have the Blues & Acoustic Unleased courses which I’ve been studying on for the last 3 years and can 100% say without the knowledge from these courses I would be lost in the YouTube wilderness! From this “retired” drummer (I can count already Griff :-)) and wannabe guitarist I deeply thank you for this. I hope to be able to attend a BGU or CRGU annual jam one day soon to be able to personally thank you . Kevin in Surrey UK

So glad you are providing a course for this. My next wish list would be for a praise and worship style course. Not sure what “rules” or scales are being used in the riffs to modern Christian music…it’s definitely not the blues scale..at least I don’t think so

    This is the shit Griff! πŸ™‚ Been looking for lessons like this my entire guitar playing “life.” You ever you are charging I’ll pay double!!

    Question though: shame you can’t teach us the actual solos note-for-note. Are there *really* copyright issues today with all the stuff on YouTube? There used to be these Note-For-Note cassettes that you could buy through Guitar Player magazine where the guy got away with it.

    I laughed when I saw this lesson. After completing several of the BGU courses, I know exactly what you’re dong here and could probably learn this solo in about 30 minutes!!! It’s all Griff’s fault. He taught me too much, already! Actually, I know I’ll end up buying it…after I finish the other three courses on the shelf!

    The other thing I would like (on all courses) is a description of the gear used. The guitar itself is obvious, but what isn’t always clear, indeed often isn’t clear, is the settings on volume, tone and selector switch. Also, there is a requirement to tell us what effects are used, and how – pedals, settings, chain etc – and the amplifier, with it’s settings. Thanks for everything, Griff.

    Hi Griff. Maybe I missed this (been known to happen). . . do the lessons contain instruction on the strumming patterns and fingering for the rhythm guitar used on the jam tracks?

    • Griff

      Reply Reply March 15, 2017

      Not specifically, but there are dozens of riffs and strum parts in the rhythm section of the course. If you were to go through those and learn them, you’d have little trouble figuring out the specific patterns used in the solo backing tracks.

  • Pete B

    Reply Reply March 15, 2017

    The Guitar is the star (as always) and played over this type of progression just has to be learnt. Fortunately a lot of the classic type solo’s, especially Zep, are so ingrained in us that the timing etc. is almost automatic. I’m only sorry that next week I shall be on holiday and not able to hit the buy button and get stuck in until April. Thanks to you Griff, I’ve got some stuff to get on with. We all love what you do, don’t retire yet please, I’m not good enough.

    Mr griff , I really injoy your teaching methods and I get a lot from them . Thanks for being there . Now I really love the aquistic sound I just off listening and playing my Taylor acoustic . I also enjoy rocking out on my electric as well , so I try to use string sizing so I can go back and forth between the two and not be to weak for my taylor and not to strong for my electric. I use 11 – 52s on my acoustic and the same on the electric but some time I have a hard getting a quick smooth bend and any thing lighter I feel I lose good tone . Lighter strings on the electric makes me weak on the acoustic, I know it’s a silly dilemma lol . I like 12s on my guild cause I play most of my slide stuff it and I love the tone you get but bending can be a bitch lol so ok , what are your thoughts on the string thing ? And if I may ask what do you use on your guitars ? Hope I’m not being to nosey lol thanks for your time , randy

You have just shown me how that is possible and I am really excited about the Classic Rock Guitar Unleashed course. First BGU, now this. I feel totally prepared, Your marketing instinct is amazingly dead on, Griff. Thanks so much for doing what you do!

    Hi Griff , This is a fantastic idea !
    I can play a lot of these old classics really well and they are always
    my “go to ” songs when I either get fed up with learning more bluesy stuff
    or just need to cheer myself up . There is nothing quite like cranking the Marshall
    up and running through songs from ACDC , Led Zeppelin , Deep Purple , Jimi Hendrix
    Lynard Skynard , Bad Company , Free etc etc . I always come away as happy as a “pig
    in you know what” after either Jamming or practicing this music.
    Fortunately my neighbours are pretty good so I can get away with running as much
    power as I want for shortish periods . ( I know one of them likes my playing !)
    The best thing by far is that almost everyone instantly knows the song if you can
    play it even half way decent .
    I reckon you are on a real winner here Griff so please continue , there will be many
    people just crying out for lessons on this stuff .
