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 a shuffle blues in the key of E. The video shows a few different way to play the same thing - with string muting and with a raking approach so it sounds more like the Texas Shuffle SRV often did. This type of groove is great for practicing blues licks to. I will present some ideas in future video lessons.

Learning guitar at your own pace

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!

Guitar Pro

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.

Order Guitar Pro 6, and also get our guitar-playing method for free.

Video Clips

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.

Raking shuffle blues doesn't either.
Looks like you need to go through your site and clean out these dead links. I was thinking about donation
but not sure how many of these links are working and how old this site is.
I just came across this looking at SRV guitars.

Very nice Robert. I think this shuffle in E will be perfect for "I Hear You Knockin'" by Fats Domino, later recorded by Dave Edmunds. Though I am not sure what key he recorded it in.
