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

Here is a cool way to play blues guitar rhythm with chords. These chords are mini-chords, often referred to as dyads, because they have only 2 notes. Very useful to use dyads when playing both lead and rhythm guitar!

Can you "Fill It" ? :)

Tab and GP6 files

Hi John! I used the Line 6 HD500 and it was set to a crunchy tone. Slight distortion.
