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! (2-hours) Includes: Matching tones to simple songs, learning easy & difficult licks from hit records, preparing the recording for analysis, tuning up to the recording, figuring out what key its in, figuring out chords & chord progressions, special problems for fingerpicking, harmonica, bass, drums, figuring out musical ornaments, developing artistry, & much more! Watch Dan actually figure out licks, solos & chords , from several songs, (using several different instruments) as he explains the secrets & the use of the devices. *For all instruments and all styles of music.


Customer Compliments

If anyone wants to be able to figure out leads from their favorite musician, I would suggest this DVD. Many musicians have learned this way - by ear. And Dan gives you the tools to do so. ---IZV

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Instructional Investment!, June 29, 2010 Dan Huckabee is one down-home easy-to-listen-to music instructor. Great introduction with a good demonstration on how to listen and figure out music from recordings. Also, I think this is the only, I repeat, only instructional dvd that covers this stuff. The recording products demo are of products that are now even more useful and affordable! His explanation of multi-track recording is pricelss. I highly recommend this DVD. Enjoy! Frank from Connecticut

Dan, I much enjoyed your "how to figure out music from recordings" DVD. I particularly enjoyed how your personality came across. Your approach is very reassuring and I needed that reassurance more than even the technical knowledge. I plan to do more ordering from your catalog. Regards, Chris Gray review By Tree Fan (Asheville, NC) - See all my reviews While this guy may not be "Mr. Entertainment" as some on his other reviews have pointed out; that's not the point. I find him very easy to learn from; he's straightforward, thorough, knows his subject, and I walk away knowing more than when I started. I think he does a great job with his DVDs!
