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 another blues turnaround lick, this one played in the key of E. This lick uses the open E string as you play the descending triplets. Sounds nice this way. Now, next thing you should try, is to play the same lick in a different key. Try the key of A, for example. What you will need to do is to transpose the lick, and figure out what fingering to use. That open E string we used in this example will not work in the key of A, so you will need to use one finger to fret that note, while those other two notes descend. Sorry if this sounds complicated, but I will provide you with tab for this lick in the key of A in the near future. However, try figuring it out yourself first. That is the best way to learn!

Learning guitar at your own pace

I want to tell you about the guitar lesson web site JamPlay. They have kindly offered a special 7 Day Free trial to visitors of Dolphinstreet.com. I have reviewed their site, and I have to say it is VERY impressive.

There are lots of teachers and many different areas to learn from. It is well organized, and you can learn songs, techniques, etc - very complete website for learning. After 7 days, you will pay a monthly subscription continue. For the 7 trial, you don't have to give out your credit card number.

Go check it out and see what you think. Since it is completely free for 7 days, you really should test it out. You have nothing to lose. If you are interested in learning guitar online, you would be silly not to take advantage of this. If you do decide to sign up, I receive a little bonus, so this way you help support dolphinstreet as well!

JamPlay - Dolphinstreet special 7 day trial - use this code: dstrial.

Guitar Pro

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.

Order Guitar Pro 6, and also get our guitar-playing method for free.

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.

Well explained - it is very difficult to see how players fingerings work - but you play it over in different ways and make it all very clear.
Thanks,
Geoff
