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 one of my signature licks. I guess the style is a bit like Robben Ford meets Scott Henderson meets Robert Renman? You can see in this video how I apply a lot of pull-off and hammer-ons; it's not alternate picking the whole way.

In this example, the is played over an E9 funk vamp. It's an "outside" lick, meaning there are a few notes that don't really relate to any particular scale. I think it sounds pretty cool.

The lick kind of starts off with a rockabilly-style start, then goes into an outside jazz idea, which moves into a diminished triad, then ends with a blues phrase. How's that for a combination of styles?

Guitar Pro

Download Guitar Pro

I highly recommend you buy Guitar Pro - it's the best software I have found for learning guitar tabs. All my lessons will from now on come with Guitar Pro files. You can download a trial version on the Guitar Pro website to see if you like it (I think you will).

This is an absolutely beautiful lick. Please post more of your signature licks! I love your SRV, Albert and B.B. King licks as well but you have a great individual style and phrasing and it would be nice to hear even more of that. I ran across this site about a week ago and have had difficulty leaving it. Your work is greatly appreciated!
