Horn section parts, punches, and fills add a whole new sonic dimension and excitement to any style of music especially blues, rock, and jazz. It’s rare that we get a chance to play with horns, which is why guitarists learn how to mimic a horn section to majorly liven up their comping, rhythm parts, and fills. Steven van der Nat’s Horn Section Riffs Guidebook is an accelerated curriculum focused on emulating horn section harmonizations, dynamics, and timing on guitar.
”I'll show you a variety of concepts and approaches for playing horn section parts on guitar. We’ll work on techniques like sliding chords, double stops, triads, and using repeating motifs — just like a horn section would play. We'll also look at playing off of a horn section by interacting and filling in the gaps. As a bonus, I'll show you how to sound like a Hammond organ and play some cool Hammond style grooves on guitar.”
Steven van der Nat is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter from the Netherlands.

We’re thrilled to welcome Steven to the family with his first TrueFire course, Horn Section Riffs Guidebook. You will likewise be thrilled when you dig into his Guidebook and take a few of these moves to your next jam or gig!
Steven organized the curriculum into a series of playalong performance studies, where each study focuses on a particular horn section emulation concept or technique. Steven will first perform the study over a backing track and then he’ll break it down emphasizing the concept or technique being applied. You will play your way through the course!
Steven will explain and demonstrate all of the key concepts and approaches along the way. You’ll get standard notation and tabs for each of the licks. Plus, Steven includes all of the rhythm tracks for you to work with on your own (some include a real live horn section!). In addition, you’ll be able to loop or slow down any of the videos so that you can work with the lessons at your own pace.
Grab your guitar and let’s play some horn parts with Steven van der Nat!
