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

The Raking Effect is cool to use - have a look at this example, playing the lick first without the rake effect, and then with the effect. It works especially good when you play blues, and It gives you a more dynamic and more "personal touch" to licks and lines. Let me know how this works out for you

Learning guitar at your own pace

I want to tell you about the guitar lesson web site JamPlay. They have kindly offered a special 7 Day Free trial to visitors of Dolphinstreet.com. I have reviewed their site, and I have to say it is VERY impressive.

There are lots of teachers and many different areas to learn from. It is well organized, and you can learn songs, techniques, etc - very complete website for learning. After 7 days, you will pay a monthly subscription continue. For the 7 trial, you don't have to give out your credit card number.

Go check it out and see what you think. Since it is completely free for 7 days, you really should test it out. You have nothing to lose. If you are interested in learning guitar online, you would be silly not to take advantage of this. If you do decide to sign up, I receive a little bonus, so this way you help support dolphinstreet as well!

Guitar Pro

I use Guitar Pro for most of my video lessons. It is a great product that will not only show you the notes in both TAB and standard notation, you will also HEAR them being played at the same you see them. Very helpful for learning! Click the link below to try the free demo.

Order Guitar Pro 6, and also get our guitar-playing method for free.

Video Clips

I have lots of gear demos too on this site. Go and take a look at some of my Guitar Videos for some examples of gear I use or have used.

Nice to hear the underlying harmonics this technique produces at
the octave. Can this raking be applied to BB King's "Woke up this
Morning"?

sweet lick Robert.you ask if I have learned any of your licks? let me put it this way. Yes and what I have done is learned at least some of all and at least whole one or two then combined them to work in an arsenal of licks already built up.this one is going to be added as a whole then incorporated into a decent major riff.it is going to be fun. Thank You
