Jim Loessberg's E9th Courses 

All the courses include an audio CD, printed tablature, and chord charts.  Each are sold individually.

  • Beginning Chord Construction For E9th - This course begins with the basics of chord construction.   Starting with the major scale formula, it teaches the student how to construct major, minor, suspended, augmented, diminished and 7th chords (major, minor and dominant).  This course is designed for the player who has no knowledge of chords but who would like to learn an easy way to construct any chord.  Some basic knowledge of the E9th neck, positions and string grips will be helpful for this course.
  • Intermediate Chord Construction for E9th - This tape begins where the Beginning Chord Construction for E9th course leaves off.  It covers the construction of 9th chords, including major, minor and dominant chords.  The course also includes a section on altered 9th chords, including 7#9 and 7b9 chords. It is recommended that the player have a good grasp of the material in the Beginning Chord Construction for E9th course.  All playable on a standard E9th setup.
  • 15 Ways to Get from a I Chord to a IV Chord - Fifteen of Jim’s favorite licks to get from a I to a IV chord in various tempos and keys.  These licks can also be used to get from a V chord to a I chord.  Designed this course with the beginning-to-intermediate level player in mind.  However, Jim uses all these licks regularly, so intermediate-to-advanced players might like it too!  All playable on a standard E9th setup.
  • Right Hand Technique Building for E9th - These are the same exercises Jim uses to improve right hand technique.  Most of these exercises can be used as licks in songs.  Exercises include two-finger exercises, palm blocking and pick blocking exercises, and some three-finger exercises.  There is something for every level of player.  All playable on a standard E9th setup.
  • Tab and Tracks for my Album, Sawed-Off Shotgun - These are the tracks from Jim’s album and all the steel tracks have been left off so you can play along with these great tracks, featuring Bobby Flores on fiddle and guitar, and the legendary Bob Moore on upright bass.  The tab book contains every note of steel on the album, with the exception of chord pads and comping behind other instruments.

  • 25 Ray Price Intros and Solos - On the CD Jim plays each intro or solo through once with a metronome then describes where and how to play it. Each intro or solo is on a separate track for easy reference and each individual explanation is on a separate track as well. The intros and solos are also written out in an easy-to-read tablature booklet. Jim says, “I don't guarantee that everything is exactly like they are on the records, but I think they are all pretty close. At any rate, this is the way I play these tunes!” Since the CD is 75 minutes, there isn't room for rhythm tracks. All playable on a standard E9th setup.
