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 funky blues lick in the style of Robben Ford. I have heard him play licks like this one on the song Chevrolet.

It's very cool to add that Major 6th when playing over dominant 7 groove. I do it all the time - Robben Ford does too.

The tune Chevrolet is featured on his album Handful Of Blues.

Do Check Out Robben Ford on i Tunes.

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!

JamPlay - Dolphinstreet special 7 day trial - use this code: dstrial.

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.

Really cool sounding lick .... I will use it in parts and whole, and added to other licks. thanks for showing every step start to finish. then instructing. I always loose concintration when other teachers talk pentatonic and theory, while I am learing the path from one note to another.

Robert, time after time I listen to your demonstration of a particular lesson, and I say to myself I will never be able to play it like that. However after watching your lesson and practicing.... I come real close. Thanks so much for sharing your gift of guitar playing!!!
