Editorial Reviews

How many times have you heard a great solo on a CD & wished you could play it exactly like the original? We at Musicians Workshop caused a minor revolution in 1977 when we started offering half-speed recorders especially for the purpose of figuring out licks off of records. At that time, only a few people were practicing this valuable secret.

25 years later, we are still helping people to get started learning music all by yourself by listening to your favorite CD & trying to figure out what your hero has played. In this 2-hour video you will learn the history of lick learning, the ear training benefits, & how the process actually works the same for all instrument. You will see a complete & thorough demonstration of all the lick-learning machines as well as how each works & sounds. But most of all, we will show the reason why figuring out licks off of records is absolutely the most important, valuable, & fulfilling way to learn to play a musical instrument, & truly the only way to develop your ear! (2-hours)

Includes: Matching tones to simple songs, learning easy & difficult licks from hit records, preparing the recording for analysis, tuning up to the recording, figuring out what key its in, figuring out chords & chord progressions, special problems for fingerpicking, harmonica, bass, drums, figuring out musical ornaments, developing artistry, & much more! Watch Dan actually figure out licks, solos & chords , from several songs, (using several different instruments) as he explains the secrets & the use of the devices.

*For all instruments and all styles of music.

Dan Huckabee is one down-home easy-to-listen-to music instructor. Great introduction with a good demonstration on how to listen and figure out music from recordings. Also, I think this is the only, I repeat, only instructional dvd that covers this stuff. The recording products demo are of products that are now even more useful and affordable! His explanation of multi-track recording is pricelss. I highly recommend this DVD. Enjoy! Frank from Connecticut
