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 blues lick uses the E minor blues scale, and this scale consists of the notes E, G, A, A# (Bb), B, D. In this lesson, you can hear how it sounds played slow, and how it sounds played faster. It is a really useful line, and I use it a lot myself. It could perhaps be a "Robert Renman-lick", haha!

In this video lesson, I also try to give you an idea how you can use licks like these - by ending the phrase/lick on different notes, depending on which chord you are playing over. A lick always sounds strong if you end it with a chord note. Have a look, and hopefully this makes good sense.

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).

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.

Video Clips

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.
