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 pentatonic guitar lick in the key of E uses a "sweep" motion to make it sound really quick. Practice it slowly over and over until you can play it cleanly. Have patience, it takes a while to get the strength and technique up for doing this kind of stuff, but you can do it. Just be patient and work on it.

Hi Robert.

Thanks for the website, lessons, and all. I've wanted to learn blues scales for a long time, especially after seeing my brother who is able to play blues scales very well after following your lessons, so here I am trying to pick up some good lessons and tips from you. However, i need your help with pointing out on which video lesson should I start off with, blues. I'm an intermediate to advance self-learned guitarist but would like to learn blues which I believe any guitarist should be able to play very fluently. Thanks!

Thanks for all the free lessons, I can't imagine the time and effort that must go into this site. Do you ever post tabs?
