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.
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.
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.

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!
Robert- cool lick ! Can I have a TAB for it?

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?Comment added on January 16, 2008
