Cold Shot (SRV)

Seen my course about soloing with scales?

    Go here Scales You Can Use When You Play The Blues, instant download or on DVD. Learn how to use my Hybrid Scale approach to solo over 1-4-5 progressions - I use it all the time.

Want to Slow Down Videos to make it easier to learn?
Try Video Surgeon - it is great.

I have tons of great lessons at Master Guitar Academy. Join me there - it's where you can learn with me every week. That's also where all my DVDs and Premium Downloads are.

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

Shows how I play this great SRV song, Cold Shot. To make it sound like the original, a rotating speaker simulation or leslie effect is needed - I didn't use that on this song for clarity. It should also be played on a Stratocaster, but I had to use a Tele in this case.

One of these days, I'll try to make a lesson on how to play the solo too, as Stevie Ray did it.

Looks like most of the SRV song videos are not working anymore.

Hope you do some more SRV tricks and tips lessons.

dang! Wish there'd been a bit more explanation of how to play it, but I guess you gotta save something for the DVD. You sound great!
