Rich Severson: Guitar College website review

Rich Severson: Guitar College Rich Severson: Guitar College

Rich Severson music educator, guitarist extraordinaire and ex-Guitar Institute Tutor leads this excellent website dedicated primarily for aspiring jazz guitarists to further their playing skills/really get to grips with the intricacies of this special musical style.

There really is something for everybody here...whether you are looking for a bunch of cool licks to spice up your playing, or something deeper such as mastering the modes. It's all here in digestible, in-depth and carefully broken down lessons which you can download and study in your own time without being online. Rich has a cool personality too - his likeability will inspire you! There is no need for membership and lessons vary from as little as a 60p to around £3! So what are you waiting for?

The goal is to play, understand and enjoy the guitar and the music you can make with it. If you learn to understand the music that's in front of you, see where it should be played on your instrument, hear what it should sound like and develop the technical skill to perform it, there is no stopping you!

Rich says: "Time is something we all need more of, but I've found that ideally just two daily 20-minute quality practice periods can produce amazing results. We have suggestions that can help you learn faster but it's going to some take time. There are no magic shortcuts, I've searched for them! Anybody who advertises them is just pulling your leg!"

This is a valuable resource, one you may find yourself returning to time and time again ...and most of the lessons come with a demo video to. This is a treasure trove well worth diggin' into and getting those chops up to speed!
