I have tons of great lessons at Master Guitar Academy. Join me there - it's where you can learn with me every week. That's also where all my DVDs and Premium Downloads are.
Why not support the free lessons? They took me hundreds of hours to make.

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's a short but cool little blues lick, using triplets. Guitar from http://www.hellguitars.com I think I got this lick from Robben Ford. I think SRV off played something like this too. Lots of guys do - we all steal from each other, haha!
I recommend you get used to using triplets when playing lead. It's a given when playing blues - it works very well over blues shuffle songs. This blues lick you can throw in almost anywhere, and still sound like a King! (insert smiley here)
Understanding I-IV-V is an intensive 65 minute video that will give you a crash course on guitar theory. It is not a complete lesson on music theory. Instead, this is the perfect introductory tool to get you started on the guitar, or to reveal the secrets of the fretboard that you are not aware of yet. You will learn why chord numbers are far more important than chord letters, how to write your own songs and chord progressions effortlessly and endlessly, and much more.
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.
