Slowing down songs is another great way to learn from records and your song collection. I use Song Surgeon, which works really well for this. Check it out.

Guitar Lesson Overview

Sweep picking and tapping - you probably think of me as a blues player, but I was into this shredding stuff a lot when I was a teenager. Here's a flashy shredding lick for you to learn. You can download the TAB in PDF format, and Guitar Pro 6 file below. The backing track is from the Line 6 JM4 looper pedal. The song I used on the JM4 is called "Alt Rock" and the guitar tone used is also from the JM4 - "4 The Lov Vai" and is great for this style of playing. It really helps to have a high gain sound and a bit of delay when playing this style of legato/hammerons/pullofs. Shredding is fun, even for an old guy like me! Haha!

The Line 6 JM4 Looper is a great tool for practicing and coming up with ideas. If you want a jamming buddy that easy to use - turn it, select song/drum track, and start jamming - then the Line 6 JM4 Looper is for you.

it would of be nice if you played it a little lower on the neck. Most Strats don't have a 22nd fret

I just stumbled upon you on youtube and first of all, "wow"! your great and you walk through those tough progressions slow enough for a guy to catch on so thanks for that and I was wondering if you are in a band or have some recordings I can access?
