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 a fast pickin' lick for you! Can be used to end a country or blues tune, or as a cool sounding rock lick! Hopefully it's all clear from the video how to play this. One thing I didn't go in to, is that muting with the left hand is very important, so that you don't get unwanted string noise. I should probably have talked a bit about this in the video, but you know, I forgot. Hope you like this anyway. Let me know!

Download Guitar Pro

I highly recommend you buy Guitar Pro - it's the best software I have found for learning guitar. You can both see and hear the notes played with Guitar Pro. 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!

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.

hey robert, hows it going. I feel like I know you as a friend cause im always looking forward to your E Mails. the lessons are great. I do have one question though. Ive been playing for over 45 years and feel I have A pretty fair grasp of the fret board.However, speed has always been a problem for me. Is there any exercises you could recomend to help me out? One example of a problem would be the rapid succession of hammerons and pull ofs on for example the middle E string with the index finger.It seems I lack the strength. I do practice on average about 3 hours a day. But to attempt this one little item has always been frustrating. thanks for any advice you may have to offer.

Awesome lick ! Is this an original RR?
I have always admired guitarist who can play like this, even though I am a acoustic fingerpicker. Nice to see how it is done in slow mo ! Actually I like the middle speed the best.Not quite as cluttered sounding as it is when played super fast.It allows my ear to hear all the great expressions better !
You ROCK RR !
Fred

Yo Rob, You make it look so easy, I guess I can't expect to much from myself after only twelve months of playing, kicking myself for not picking up guitar thirty years ago, thanks for great lessons.Cheers Richard.
