It is my very first trio I've ever written. It features piano, cello and...snare roll....guitar! (obviously :) )

No shred guitar by the ton here. I'd rather focus on songwriting and melody on the guitar instead.
Thank you very much.

Rusty Cooley: new Rusty Cooley interactive video course!

Rusty Cooley
TrueFire and I have just filmed the video content for a new Rusty Cooley interactive video course. This will be software that you can get on a disk, download to your computer, stream online or get as an iPhone/iPad app. I demonstrate 50 of my favorite licks and then break them down to explain the technical and harmonic aspects of the lick. All of the licks will be tabbed and notated and Guitar Pro files will also be included (so you slow the lick down to any tempo to practice it). You can use TrueFire's lesson player to control the video to zoom and loop
