Rolly Brown has been practicing the Guitar for 50 years, and, in that time, he’s developed a large armamentarium of tools to aid and motivate himself and his students.
In this two hour DVD, starting with his rule of “half work, half play”, he shares many of these ideas, interspersed with teachings to help you better enjoy and understand music and the guitar from a simple “nuts and bolts” point of view. Whatever style of music you play, you want ways of practicing rhythm, harmony, and melody, the 3 building blocks of music.
