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)
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!
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.

Words seem lacking to express my gratitude to you for the FREE lessons that have helped me improve my playing, something I could not have achieved or afforded.
