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

Joe Bonamassa is a blues rock titan, whose guitar playing is always inspiring. He has great technique, both alternate picking and legato style. Here is a Bonamassa-inspired lick, that uses more legato style playing than alternate picking. With practice, you will be able to play this fast, but start out slow and methodically. It is important you play it clean and without extra string noise, or it will not sound good at all. Joe has a very clean technique, and he always plays super hip notes when he's playing fast guitar riffs and licks. Enjoy!

For the tone, I used a Hell Zerodot from Hell Guitars and a Line 6 POD HD300.

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.

Great lesson, as usual, Robert!

Great lick! Very well explained...but...I believe your slow examples that start at 1:45 and 2:10 have 4 less notes than your examples that start at 2:23 and 2:30.
