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

Looper pedals for creating loops that you then jam to - these are fun! There many options for these types of pedals. As for me, I usually use my Line 6 JM-4, because it is so convenient. It has tons of jam tracks and drum tracks in it already, but I mostly use it for creating my own loops that I then turn into songs or backing tracks, or whatever. It's great practice, and it's fun!

In this video, you'll see how I do it. I tried to show you ONE of many ways you can do this. Hope you enjoy this!

By the way, the Line 6 M9 and M13, as well as the HD300, HD400 and HD500 also have looping functionality, but they don't have all the features the JM-4 has, so if you just want a unit for jamming and playing backing tracks from, my advice is that you get the Line 6 JM-4 in that case.


Order the HD500 from Amazon


Order the HD500 from Musician's Friend
