Some Songs to Play to Help You Play Better

I have always felt that songs and/or riffs can be some of the most effective ways of learning and improving on guitar. Here are a couple I want to share with you. One will be mostly for all of you beginners out there. The other one is for those who want to be challenged a bit more.

Whole Lotta Love (Led Zeppelin)

I asked this question a few weeks ago: who doesn’t want to rock out to some Zeppelin?

Ok, even if you don’t, how about a cool lick to learn?

Jimmy Page had come up with so many great, memorable licks and songs.

Here is one that I think that even if you are a beginner, you should be able to figure it out.

It could still be a challenge for you. If so, think of it this way, when you overcome this challenge, think about how much better you will be for it!

TIP: always slow down videos that you are learning from so that you can get it right. Do it to this video if it is necessary

Here ya go!

Whole Lotta Love

Here’s the TAB that contains the main parts: Whole Lotta Love TAB

YYZ (Rush)

Yep, here is one that will challenge you if you are up for it!

Slow the video down if you need to. The song isn’t the easiest to play, I know.

But I also know that some of you want a BIG challenge.

Well, here you go

Have fun with it!

I hope this helps make you more successful in your playing!Have fun!

Rock on until the next time!

Wanna Be the First to Get A Secret to Improving Your Playing?

No matter how experienced you are with your guitar playing, keeping your fingers, wrist, thumb, etc. in good shape is vitally important.

Being “out of shape” in that regard not only can lead to bad playing but in extreme situations cause physical damage.

It is something that you cannot afford to risk.

So I decided to do something about it in order to help guitarists like you stay in shape.

I am offering a FREE mini-course called Guitar Finger Gymnastics. Specifically, Techniques to Improve Finger Strength and Dexterity.

In it there are a handful of short videos and TAB’s on how to keep your hands and fingers in shape (Many of them have more detail than you might have previously seen from me).

And this is the first time I have ever done something like this. I feel that strongly about it.

So, I wanted to get it out to all of you first before I unleash it out to the world.

Here is what it contains:

  1. Chromatic Scale Warmup: it is the easiest and most vital warmup exercise you can use. I’ve been playing over 40 years and still use versions of this scale
  2. Diagonals: A real cool warmup you can use at any time. A great exercise!
  3. Finger Crawl: A brain busting coordination exercise that will help your playing immensely.
  4. Alternate Chromatic Fingering: A variation on the traditional Chromatic Scale that is a must to help with strength, dexterity, & coordination.
  5. Stretching: There are many stretching exercises out there. What I have in this lesson will go a long way to help you get stretching!

So go ahead and download it now. There are no strings attached (ha!). Seriously, there isn’t any obligation or secret handshake needed. Just go ahead and use it for your routines.

I have much more coming…
