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!
