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 blues lick which sounds good when played fairly slow. It works faster too, but I think it works best played at a slower tempo. Lesson files will be up soon. Hope you like it.

Tab/notation in PDF and 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).

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.

Thank you for all your videos and Pdf's. You take a lot of time to produce these and you never ever assume too much. You know how to break things down and do it slowly as well as fast!!! You have a great technique and a great personality for this kind of thing!!!When we finish with your lessons we can actually play something that sounds cool!!!

I love this slower blues lick. I use it a lot now. However, I can't figure out what your doing at the end of the video lesson (at about time 2:40 to the end). Can you post a another PDF?

Hi Robert,
Love this lick.. I'm a beginner guitar player and love the blues.. I printed off the TAB in pdf but was disappointed that you didn't include that totally awesome turn-around. Any chance you can do that for us? Keep up the great work and thanks for everything you do!!

I really like this slow blues lick you recently put on the site. I have tried to figure out the turn around that you use or the way you finish the licks and break into chords. I can't quite make out what strings you are playing for this. Do I need to purchase something to get the whole PDF. I printed off the PDF but it seems that it is for something else. Sorry, for having trouble with this. I learned your chicken pickin lick and play it all the time. Just want you to know I really thing your site is great!. I am disabled and don't see quite as well as I used to but I am willing to spend anything you consider reasonable for some of your full lessons. Do you have a list of what is on your DVD's or are they only for download?

Thank you,
