Welcome to Song Squad. We’ve crafted a collection of easy-to-play tunes, just for you.
Our songs are written with social media in mind – they are short, groove-based, and quick to learn. We're here to help you level-up both your guitar playing, and your Instagram game.
We’ll be regularly adding new songs to keep you motivated and inspired.
We'll be featuring your covers on our Instagram channels, which have over 300K followers combined. When you cover a song, use our hashtag system to be found, and also to see how other guitarists are covering Song Squad tunes.
Our in-house Pickupjazz courses are taught by NYC-based guitarist, Sam Blakelock.
Blakelock shares hard earned advice in humorous, easy-to-digest chunks with his students.
He completed his Master of Music in guitar in NYC under the tuition of Lage Lund (Marie Schneider) & Paul Bollenback (Joey DeFrancesco) and now performs regularly in Brooklyn and Manhattan while maintaining a busy touring schedule abroad. Blakelock is the founder of @pickupjazz, a 250K Instagram music community. His own Instagram page @samblakelock has over 70K fans. Over time he has developed a unique, step-by-step approach to learning guitar.
