    Default Carl Verheyen

    So I'm in India now visiting my parents, and trying to make productive use of my time. I decided to work on some Truefire courses and woodshed just a bit, and I came across this guy Carl Verheyen. I ended up getting a couple of his courses, and I must say I'm very impressed! Not only is he a great teacher, but the dude has monster chops. Apparently, he's a big time session guy in LA, just like Larry and Lee used to be in the 70s.

    Are you guys familiar with him?

    Yeah - I have a couple of his CDs. He used to be the guitarist for Supertramp. Great player!

    Supertramp, eh? Thats interesting - I've always thought of them as a pop band. Then again, I haven't heard that much of their stuff. This sort of sounds like Steve Morse and Deep Purple - a nice fat paycheck for something he can do in his sleep. I don't blame him - with his session experience and chops, he could probably play anywhere he wants.

    His courses are really very good. Even though I sort of know most of the minimal theory he covers, it is very well presented and very well contextualized. I got another one by Jon Herrington that is fantastic too - now there's another chops-meister!

    Oh yeah, he is a Studio King. But he also does some live tours now and then. He does a monthly column in Guitar Player magazine where he relays some great tips and tricks.
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
