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's a couple of short licks I picked up from Gary Moore. I think they are from a song called "Texas Blues". It's really just blues licks, but when Gary Moore plays them, he's got fat, distorted sound, so they sound very "rocking"!
In the example, I am playing in the key of B, and it probably sounds best if you play over a groove that stays in the same key for the length of these two little licks.
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.

This is a great little lick. Also, I purchased "Line it up" and "Get close" from your download store. They are both amazing and the way you teach them lick by lick makes them a snap to learn. Appreciate the tabs too. Thank you very much.
