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
My way of playing Superstitious is inspired by both Stevie Wonder and Stevie Ray Vaughan. I try to emulate chords and bass line at the same time. This is a fun song to play at jams!
Note:short version, there is a longer version on the DVD.
Here is the main riff/groove which repeats over and over:
If you have not yet tried the web site JamPlay, you need to check it out. They have kindly offered a special 7 Day Free trial to visitors of Dolphinstreet. I have reviewed their site, and I have to say it is VERY impressive. So much good material to learn from.
What can you learn at JamPlay?
JamPlay has over 535 hours of lessons, and currently 45 different teachers. The lessons are from 15 minutes to 1 hour.
The lessons come with printable materials and supplemental content - TAB, chord charts, exercises and a lot more. Here is an overview of some of the things you can learn at JamPlay.

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.
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.

Comon guys, once you know the tab bit out of your head, the rest is very easy to find out. Don't be afraid to fool around a bit till you got it.

Zande, the song is on the DVD. It's actually explained in detail on the DVD, whereas on this video clip above, there's no explanation.

I don't quite understand the statement that supersticious is not on the dvd but instructions on how to play it is, or at least I am unhappy with that. If I were to buy the dvd, it would be for that cool little rhythm only the full version....
