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
There are many ways to strum a blues tune. In this lesson, we are going to do a straight rhythm, not a shuffle rhythm. What makes this sound really cool is the accents on "1", "2", "3 and" - this and the muting in between these accents.
The chord progression here is just a simple 12 bar blues. The chords used are E7, A7 and B7. Hope you like this technique!
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.

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.
