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
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.
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.
