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 is a nice Stevie Ray Vaughan style lick. In this example I am playing in the key of E. This SRV lick uses mostly the regular blues scale, although there are 2 notes (Gb and F) which are not part of the blues scale.

It sounds good played slow or fast. Have a listen to Texas Flood, and you'll hear SRV burn off quite a few licks very similar to this one.

SRV Style Lick 1 in PDF & Guitar Pro 5

Download Guitar Pro

I highly recommend you buy Guitar Pro - it's the best software I have found for learning guitar. Many of my lessons 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).

Robert: The Lick in the video is done on the 12th fret E and above but the tab starts G string 7th fret I figure you just transpose the same pattern to the 12th fret (no).............Jim PS the tab is SRV style lick1.pdf
