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

Learn a slow blues shuffle! This one is fun to play, and as the lesson shows towards the end, it sounds great played faster too. Work on playing a steady rhythm. This is sometimes tricky when it's slow like this, so practice this with a metronome or drum machine, and work on playing it with a nice groove - tight, with some feeling.

You can play almost any kind of blues lick over a rhythm like this. Pretty much anything goes! Enjoy, and let me know what you think of this guitar lesson.

This is a great lesson. It would really help if I could see it tabbed out. I seem to be able to make more sense of the timing when I have the measures on paper in front of me. At the moment I am trying to play along note for note. Its great fun.
