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 shortest guitar lick in the world? Well, I don't know for sure... how short can you play this? Tongue in cheek here obviously... but the point is that this is a great "trick" or "staple lick" that guitar players use all the time. In different genres too! Blues, country, rock - you will hear this lick in all of those styles. Just listen to Angus Young, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Brent Mason... they all play this! Make sure you can do this lick all over the neck with ease - it's incredibly useful to know.

I used a Line 6 POD HD500 for the tone.

Order the HD500 from Amazon

Very nice - what pedals are you using to get the country, blues and rock toned?

These lessons are the secret gems that have eluded me for years. Your small lessons give me huge improvements. Why can't more instructors teach this way? Another great gem from Robert!

Shortest guitar lick in the world = most amount of bend for your buck. Nice job Robert; fun and informative, as usual. Thanks.

Kudos on the short sweet riff type lick
