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 Country chik'n picking lick is inspired by the great Danny Gatton - the Master of the Telecaster. I have heard him play these type of licks quite often on his recordings. I am not sure if he played it this way or not, but this is my way of playing these cool-sounding, quick, chicken picking licks.
You can do some variations on this to suit the song. At the end of the vidoe, I show a shuffle variant which you could use in a blues shuffle or similar. Take this idea to heart, and make it work for you.
If you have not yet tried the web site JamPlay, you need to check it out. They have kindly offered a special 7 Day Free trial to visitors of Dolphinstreet. I have reviewed their site, and I have to say it is VERY impressive. So much good material to learn from.
What can you learn at JamPlay?
JamPlay has over 535 hours of lessons, and currently 45 different teachers. The lessons are from 15 minutes to 1 hour.
The lessons come with printable materials and supplemental content - TAB, chord charts, exercises and a lot more. Here is an overview of some of the things you can learn at JamPlay.
Go ahead and give it a try, it is free for 7 days so you have nothing to lose.
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.
