We have added our highly anticipated, 16-part series entitled “Anatomy Of A Groove” here to the Creative Strings Academy. This series breaks down the components necessary to build your own groove, elements of a great solo, and using technology to help practice. This also features two bonus videos, including a sample solo from Christian Howes and a course on the different effects available on the electric violin.

Start learning about the Anatomy Of A Groove now! (Also available on the right sidebar)



We’ve added a Diminished Scale practice exercise under the Diminished Scale section – check it out now!
