“When Leo Fender dreamed up the Telecaster electric guitar back in ’49 or so, it’s doubtful he knew what uses it would be put to, especially in the hands of someone like Redd Volkaert. The local Telecaster master is all over the guitar like grease on a pork chop, quoting jazz, country, blues, and Western swing as effortlessly as turning on the lights in the living room.”
Commander Cody, Eric Johnson, Merle Travis, Albert Lee, Vince Gill, George Jones, Buck Owens, Merle Haggard, Dwight Yokum, Trace Adkins, Tim McGraw, Allison Krause, Charlie Pride, Brad Paisley, Billy Gibbons, Sonny Landreth, Dolly Parton and a hundred other top artists that he’s played or recorded with would agree — “Redd Volkaert is a master of the Telecaster!”
We’re beyond thrilled to welcome Redd to the family with his first TrueFire course, Redd Hot Guitar! You will likewise be thrilled when Redd lifts the hood on his inimitable guitar prowess and shows you a few ear-opening tricks of the trade. We guarantee turned heads at your next gig!
