Learn More About Electric Blues With Dave Nassie

Posted on June 20th, 2012 by MDuffy

Bleeding Through guitarist Dave Nassie has posted a new lesson on blues guitar, with a focus on using dynamics and bending.

“I was thinking to myself, ‘How am I going to put together a lesson for people to feel that within themselves they can portray more feeling in their playing?’ Nassie said.

“That’s kind of what I want to go for. We’re going to use a blues context because it’s the easiest to do, not so much centered on licks but approach.”

Learn from the guitar virtuoso in the clip below.

For those in the California/Nevada area, you can meet the teacher in persons, as Nassie has a new slate of Charvel Desolation Series Clinics this weekend.

Nassie’s schedule is as follows:

June 21, 6:30 p.m.
Bananas At Large
Santa Rosa, Calif.

June 22, 7:00 p.m.
Legend Music
Manteca, Calif.

June 23, 3:00 p.m.
Bizarre Guitar
Reno, Nev.
