Like a one-man band, BEN LACY magically weaves together guitar, bass, drum, and vocal parts on his 6-string electric guitar to produce irresistibly funky grooves. On this episode, the Kentucky-based guitarist plugs in with host Jude Gold to demonstrate some of his amazing song arrangements and reveal many of his signature techniques.

Ben Lacy's Two-Hand Groove Guitar Course from TrueFire!

Hire a bass player for the gig: $150. Hire a drummer: $150. Hire a horn section: $75 a man. Play all of the band parts yourself: Priceless.

No, we're not talking about one of those evil little midi-crap machines that cats are using instead of real players 'cause gigs just don't pay what they used to. We're talking going solo on guitar and funkifying your six-string grooves with polyphonic techniques for crafting drum, bass, and horn parts a la Ben Lacy and his Two-Hand Groove Guitar technique.

"Remember how we were talking about you never know who's out there?  There was this guy, his name is Ben Lacy, this guy used to come to ARU shows back in the early 90's.  He's a red-headed dude, you know, I'm a red-headed, or I was a red-headed dude before I turned grey, and so I noticed him, I'd see him quite a bit and I would always wave and talk to him at the after shows and stuff, he was really nice.  Then one year I went to a NAMM Show, I've only been to 2, and I saw this gathering of people, it was huge, was amazing…sounded like 2 or 3 guys playing together, I went up to the gathering and stuck my head over to see who it was.  It was that one guy, Ben Lacy.  He was playing by himself and he sounded like 3 people!  And it's the same kid that used to come to ARU shows, that guy, he's amazing!  But he's doing a lot of things with both hands, he emulates slap bass players on the guitar while he's also playing the melodies at the same time.  It's like, ok, where do these people come from?"  Jimmy Herring, 2013.
