Lick Library continues to launch a wide and varied range of Guitar Tuition DVDs and
their latest product further extends their catalogue with the new Jam with Tom Petty
double DVD and CD set. The new DVD features over three hours of guitar workshop
tutorials in a collection of classic Tom Petty tracks that covers a period of over
fifteen years of solo and Heartbreakers music brought to you by top guitar tutor
Danny Gill. Also included is a CD of professionally recorded guitar jam tracks for
each song allowing you to play along with a full session band!
Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers are acknowledged as a world-class outfit whose
members are able to blend an array of musical styles and create their own distinctive
sound in the process. The bands virtuoso guitarist Mike Campbell has been the back
bone of these magical pieces of music. He is noted for his ability to play incredibly
melodic tunes whilst never wasting a note, often using two or three strings at a time
instead of the more conventional one string at a time.
Jam with Tom Petty (RRP £27.99) – brings you seven classic Tom Petty tracks which
includes the fast and urgent American Girl, full of great jangling guitar riffs,
followed by the track Refugee. The next lesson features the track Here Comes My Girl
from the breakthrough hit 1979 album ‘Damn the Torpedoes’. Danny then takes a look
at the critically acclaimed Free Fallin’, a huge anthem, and one of Tom Petty’s most
famous tracks and Runnin’ Down A Dream, from Tom’s first solo album. Next comes the
very popular Learning To Fly, a deceptively simple song with a unique structure
based on only four simple chords, F, C, A minor and G. Last but not least is Mary
Jane’s Last Dance, known for its fuzzy guitar solo.
This guitar tuition DVD is presented by the multitalented Danny Gill. A versatile
guitar player, tutor and songwriter, whose cool calm approach helps you understand
each section as he breaks each track down into its component parts and will help you
learn how to achieve that distinctive Tom etty sound. Even better you can easily see
what both hands are doing on the guitar with the split screen a standard feature of
all Lick Library DVDs, plus you can watch any part of each lesson or track again and
again through the easy to use menu navigation.
Log on and learn with Lick Library where in addition to being able to purchase a wide
range of guitar tuition DVDs, you can download more guitar tracks, watch video tutorials
