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 we have a cool blues rock guitar riff, and it's using some wicked double stops. One of the great parts in this lesson is doing bends with 2 strings. It's a great technique to know, and if you haven't mastered it yet, this would be a great opportunity to learn it!
This is a fun riff to play. You can absolutely use this technique while playing a solo - it's a great way to get away from single-note lead playing. You can also simply make a new song from it, or part of a song - play around with it and see what you can come up with. It is simple, but it sounds great. Let me know what you think!
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.
