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 turnaround lick in E is inspired by Stevie Ray Vaughan. I think he played this turnaround on one of his popular tunes, I just can't remember which one it was. It sounds cool played at a moderate tempo. I don't think it sounds so exciting at slower tempos. Have a look at the TAB or the GP5 files if the video isn't helpful enough. Oh, and I made a mistake when I said C7 and B7. Those chords I played are in fact inversions of C9 and B9... just in case the theory police is watching. I do know music theory quite well, regardless of what some youtube commenters might think! haha!

By the way, maybe I should have explained the shuffle rhythm parts over B and A more, but I figured most people would know this already. Maybe, maybe not, but it's in the TAB and GP5 files.

Hope you enjoy this lick - and if you do or don't, please let me know regardless! I appreciate all feedback.

Turnaround Blues Lick 4 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).
