In the Beginning…
From little acorns, oak trees grow. A chance meeting in a bar in 1990 has led to a great musical and business success story. Stuart Bull (one half of the founding team) was playing guitar to a blues jam track in a bar. Kim Waller (the other half of the team, and an aspiring guitarist) watched him perform and was suitably impressed. Later, Kim approached Stuart to make a jam track for his own personal use, which he did. Kim then discovered he enjoyed his playing more using jam tracks. This gave the pair a great idea....
A mere six months after their original meeting, Kim and Stuart formed Total Accuracy. They produced full-band backing tracks on CD of original blues and rock styles for guitarists to practice and improvise over. This was later expanded to include classic rock, pop and blues songs. These ‘JAM with…’ products became the benchmark by which other guitar tuition products were measured.
Total Accuracy went on to become the world’s foremost producer of backing track driven tutorials for guitarists, winning awards and becoming the market leader in just eight short years.
“In 1998 we made a conscious decision to create our identity on the web” says Kim “the concept of a library of licks and riffs explained in a video download format seemed to be the most engaging form of tuition after private lessons with a pro”
Hence the rebranding of the company as Licklibrary to identify with a library of resources for guitarists on the internet. Since then the company has gone from strength to strength, becoming a global leader in online guitar tuition, with hundreds of lessons online for songs and techniques in all styles and genres, delivered in high quality streaming video straight to your Mac or PC. Additionally the Licklibrary DVD lesson catalogue has expanded to over 450 titles offering note for note lessons to thousands of classic songs from Led Zeppelin to Simon & Garfunkel.
