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

This week's edition is about Dominant 11 chords. These chords can be used wherever you have regular 7 chords. Just as with 13th chords, they have a very identifiable sound.

Remember this - to create 11th chords, you can blend in any of these intervals/scale degrees - 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 from the Mixolydian mode. Now go exploring!

This is the 5th edition of Q & A with yours truly. Send me your questions and I'll try to answer one per week.

I used EzMix 2 from http://www.toontrack for the guitar tone. LINKS: https://www.facebook.com/Dolphinstreeet http://www.MasterGuitarAcademy.com https://twitter.com/MGuitarAcademy https://plus.google.com/+RobertRenman/ http://instagram.com/robertrenman Thanks Robert

Excellent video Robert. It makes the blues sound more "tastesy".

Can you produce a video on how to do the "rake" effect that you often use when starting a lead solo or when emphasising a note. I have tried but do not seem to be able to get it. Thanks Robert.

Sorry Ric, that's just some improvisation and I don't have it tabbed out. I'm planning on more lessons you can buy regarding modes and licks using the modes. Coming later.
