What’s in a song lesson vs. tutorials

Beatles Blackbird walk-up title card

Lessons feature chapters. Blackbird by The Beatles, for example, includes the famous “walk-up” on guitar. Because most every song is different, so are the chapters. Common chapters in lessons include:

  • Tuning for guitars and setting tone controls for electric guitars
  • Intro/outros
  • Verse
  • Chorus
  • Bridge
  • Solo
  • Lead and rhythm guitars
  • Performance – front-to-end performance of the song

Tutorials vary by their objectives. For example, tutorials like “Lick of the Day” or “In the Style of B.B. King” walk you through techniques and performance of a particluar style of a solo, riff or improvising a scale.

Longer lessons or a series, like “Strumming 101” or “Pentatonic Scales,” take you through a series of steps to “crawl, walk, run” into mastery of a set of competencies.
