The cover of "Intermediate Rockabilly Guitar Lessons"
By the author Vince Gordon:
What it is:
Intermediate rockabilly guitar lessons are a big subject and this book covers tons of stuff.
To say it in headlines:
If you haven't learned how to improvise, playing rockabilly lead guitar will never feel natural or easy. That's why the teaching is centred on improvisation.
It's written in everyday language, but don't let that fool you. It IS based on music theory. The method of learning is just far less complicated and gets to the point.
IMPORTANT: It is recommended that you get the "Jam With The Jime CD" with rockabilly backing tracks to play along to, as the 48 bar solo is played to a track from that CD. You get a total discount of 21% if you buy both the CD and the eBook.
What it's not:
If you're a beginner this book is not for you. I refer you to "How to play rockabilly guitar and get good, fast!" instead.
It doesn't deal with diminshed chords and scales. This is reserved for the third book in the series, the advanced rockabilly guitar guide - which isn't written yet :-(
It doesn't have transcriptions of complete classic solos.

"I’ve purchased several rockabilly books in music stores and some DVDs I’ve ordered online thru sites like amazon.com and your eBook puts them all to shame. Your book would do great on the shelves at music stores."

"Purchased your new book over the weekend. Loving it. Great product, in depth, informative and most important; accessible. Fantastic value for money."
Paul Thompson, Tamworth, UK
"I'm glad you're explaining the "nuts & bolts" of how "Rockabilly" guitar playing is played rather than showing the songs transcribed. I know there are the "Rockabilly licks" that are needed but you're showing what you need to know (foundation-scale/chords, music/artist influences) to play this music."

"I just checked out the Intermediate eBook, and it looks great! I saw a lot of music theory in there, and as always, it looks like you explained it very clearly and got “to the point”, which is what I like about your series of eBooks. I can’t wait to get home and start playing! Learning the riffs is my favorite part, and you included some of the ones I’ve been trying to “reverse-engineer” on my own for a while now. Thanks again!"
Javier Arias, California, USA
"the new Ebook looks excellent and the Rockabilly Beat CD is terrific.. lots of great music and guitar playing.. i'm also impressed with your piano blues. Thanks again for the inspiration and sharing of knowledge.. much appreciated. I am also glad that you include music theory with your lessons. It really helps to understand the ideas and music with more depth."

"I got a new Epiphone ES-295 from Germany and because of that, I've been doing more reading and experiments with your books. Absolutety stunning material! As I already guessed - both of the books have material that I already know, but also material that I don't know. If I compare your books to The Guitar Handbook that I have... I see that I'm learning much faster from your book, because it is much more fun to read (examples, ideas, backgrounds...). That Guitar Handbook is translated to Finnish, but it is so theoretical (which I don't like) and there is so much stuff, that I feel I'm drowning in information. Your book also has theory in it but you have hidden it very well - I don't feel that I'm studying from school books. That's why I like your point of view more. Thanks again for writing these books!"
Petri Niemenmaa, Espoo, Finland
"I've just received your new rockabilly ebook + cd and jam with the jime. I must say that your ebooks (i have both the beginner and now the intemediate book) are super great!! I havent played guitar for long (about 6 months) and you books really helped my playing, and general rockabilly tone. They are straight forward and easy to use and right from the start i felt i was going somewhere. While there are loads of blues rock and jazz books around, a good rockabilly book is really hard to find. The cds are also awesome."

"The books are brilliant by the way. No fussin, straight to the point, I've learned more about rockabilly guitar in a week than I have in years of reading other stuff. great job. When do you expect to have the third book finished?"
Mark Finch, Lancashire, UK
"Thank you for bringing book two out. I’m sounding better already. The first book filled gaps in my playing and this one even more so and the scales are useful also. My Travis picking has improved also. Thanks yet again you are a godsend. I’m sounding like my heroes at last."
Gaz T, Yorkshire, UK
Here's a few words on why I wrote "Intermediate Rockabilly Guitar Lessons":
"I was overwhelmed by the positive response I got after writing the first book in the series ”How to play rockabilly guitar and get good fast!”.
A series of three books had been planned all along (beginner, intermediate and advanced), but I got so much feedback and requests on what the book on Intermediate Rockabilly Guitar Lessons should go into, that it took me almost three years to get it done!
No, I wasn’t writing every single day for three years(!), but the book has been evolving over three years, adding ideas and input from readers and fellow guitarists and music teachers.
Even though this book covers a lot of ground, it doesn't waste time on unnecessary theory but gets to the point and shows you how to play rockabilly on the intermediate level and make up your own stuff.
The concept of the whole series is to "tell it like it is", only go into the necessary theory and use everyday language as far as possible. Did you understand why you had to learn french grammatics, ancient greek history or Latin in school when you never used it? Me neither!"
