NAPA, Calif., Dec. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ArtistWorks, the leading online learning platform for lifestyle learning, today announced the Online Blues Guitar School with Keith Wyatt

A sideman to legends such as Jack Bruce, Ginger Baker, Mick Taylor and Albert Collins, as well as a longstanding member of The Blasters, Keith Wyatt is both a versatile instrumentalist and highly sought after instructor – having taught and served as Director of the Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT) since the 1980s.

The online Blues Guitar School with Keith Wyatt features a complete range of blues guitar lessons that makes room for every level of player - from beginner to advanced.  An expansive HD library of recorded courses delves into everything from theory to classic riffs, to style- and artist-specific techniques.  Styles examined include Chicago, Jump, and Uptown, as well as Rockabilly, New Orleans, Swamp, Funk and R&B. 

Wyatt also breaks down the signature guitar techniques of bluesmen such as Bo Diddley, B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughn.

The ArtistWorks Video Exchange® Learning platform takes pre-recorded lessons to the next level by enabling students to submit practice videos directly through the site.  Instructor Keith Wyatt reviews the student submissions and replies through personalized videotaped responses of his own. Each Video Exchange adds to an ever-evolving library of customized instructions that are comprehensive and convenient for all involved. 

"I've been either performing in bands or teaching blues guitar for the past four decades," said Keith Wyatt. "I've taught in classrooms, on video and in books, but the ArtistWorks Video Exchange platform allows me to work directly with students anywhere in the world - even while I'm out playing, and that's about as good as it gets."
