Sam Smiley Music Bundle

As you’ve read on this site, I teach music from the idea that
1. Music can and should be taught like language
2. All American musics are connected

If you’re like me, you can’t get bogged down into playing only one genre. You can see that country and jazz aren’t really that far apart.  If you’re playing blues, OF COURSE you want to know some country licks.  Maybe you hear Chuck Berry and can’t really decide if he’s country, blues, rock and roll, or even jazz.  That’s because he’s all of those!  So is T-Bone Walker, so is James Burton, so is Barney Kessel!

So I’ve finished my ‘trilogy’ of instructional materials based on these two premises.  NOW you can own all 3 books for just $19.97!  That means you can get an entire year worth of material to work on for less than $25.  Here’s a brief example of what you’ll get from each.

Licks and Vocabulary from the Blues Masters

The book that started it all.  Blues Language collects 125 of the most classic and essential blues licks since the Chicago blues took hold in the 1950s.  These are the licks that Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, and countless other class rockers studied.  This book teaches the blues in 6 different sections and how to approach each section.  This is what seperates the hacks from the guys who sound legit. Learn licks from

  • and more!

I’ll be honest…

I’m not sure it’s a good (business) idea to sell all 3 of these for just $19.97, so take advantage of it now!  Of course, if you are unsatisfied with any of these, please just let me know and I’ll refund all of your money.  You don’t even have to give me back the files (you can’t really give back files anyway :) ).  SO there’s no risk!
