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 is an E blues shuffle emphasizing the octave and the minor 3rd - simple pattern that sounds cool. It's sounds quite "minor", unless you bend that G note up to G#. Minor blues is cool too!
The B (5 chord) part is a bit tricky. You can hear in the video how I mess up the first 8th note in the demonstration. That's okay though, you don't have to be perfect when playing the blues, but make sure you keep accurate time - always practice with a metronome! Also make sure you play the correct number of measures for each chord.
I used a Hell Bender from http://www.HellGuitars.com and a
Line 6 POD HD500 from http://line6.com
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.
