About This Class

The #1 ingredient in all hit songs (that most people seem to overlook) is that they simply have a GROOVE going on, they make you wanna dance. This happens because there's a certain accent on one (or more) of the beats and the rhythmic feeling of the song really "rides" it well.

The problem with most amateur musicians is that when they try to reproduce songs (or when writing their own songs) so they basically ignore this groovy hook that keeps the listeners engaged.

In this class, you will learn how to really make any song that you want to play to GROOVE, by identifying the original groove (or creating your own) and then practically outlining it in your playing.

ENJOY! (your listeners will sure do)

Why should you listen to me?

Hey! My name is Alon and I am 28 years old. I have been teaching music, both online and face to face, to tens of thousands of students in the last six years - while traveling four different continents and jammin' and performing with many different musicians. I am mainly a guitarist, pianist and harmonica player, and I also play other instruments including the flute, trumpet, bass and more. I am constantly looking for the best ways and shortcuts to teaching music effectively - and with FUN. The student feedbacks show that I do it very well. (:

My guitar blog, GuitarHippies-com, (founded in 2014) where I share my tips for playing music, has a monthly readership of over 100K people from over a 150 different countries and is one of the world's top five most read guitar blogs*. I am also the founder of the Harmonica Jamz-com courses and blog that has been online since 2016 and has thousands of happy students here on Udemy.

Cheers, and I'm looking forward to seeing you inside,
