A note from Mark: “As important as it is, most find it uninspiring learning theory, practicing scales and playing fingering exercises without a practical application. My goal in Pro Lessons is to help you to master the entire fretboard and sound great every step of the way by teaching you the essential licks that are at the core of blues and rock guitar styles. I do believe everything should ultimately be expanded upon by analyzing the theory, scales and chords etc., but first and foremost I believe that if I give you something to play that will inspire you immediately, you will be motivated to continuously develop every aspect of your guitar knowledge. I truly hope to be a catalyst in your quest for guitar greatness and help you gain many valuable techniques to add to your constantly growing stockpile of ultimate pro guitar skills.”
