Learn The “Flute” Solo in Stairway To Heaven On Guitar

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

Hey all. As mentioned in the video above, the tabs for the Flute part are below. If you have any problems with them, let me know, but you should do fine. Just remember to watch the video a few times, paying attention to the fingering I’m using, and then run through the tabs to see if you get it. I left the fingerings out ’cause I know that we all have varied ways of playing things and you may find a fingering that works better for you than my own.

Well , that’s it. if you enjoyed this video please consider subscribing to my Youtube channel and “like” this lesson. Take care and Ciao.

Learn How To Play The Exorcist Theme On Guitar!!

Thursday, May 5th, 2011

Hey all. Here is a quick lesson on how to play the opening theme to the hit horror flick, The Exorcist!! This theme has been a lifetime favorite of mine and if you haven’t heard the Mike Oldfield album “Tubular Bells” with this featured song, then you gotta grab a copy! It’s completely awesome!

Now, the tabs I have provided you are easy enough to play, but the trick to getting the notes to sound right is to sustain as many notes into each other as possible. Don’t be quick to lift off your finger before the next note is picked. It’s kind of like using the sustain pedal on a piano…only not!

Watch, and listen, to the video above to see how I am playing it and I’m sure with a bit of practice, you’ll have this down in no time…:)

Have fun and enjoy!

For this lesson, I break down the song into two areas: One for the guitarists who can play full open position chords and full barre chords; and one for those who are just beginning to play guitar or those who have small hands/fingers.

Learn To Play The Beatles Classic “Michelle” On Guitar

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

Hi all. Here’s a different way of playing The Beatles Classic “Michelle”. I figured out the chords by ear from the record and voila…now I know this may not be geared to total beginners, but if you put a little effort into playing these chords, you should be good to go relatively soon. They are not as difficult as they look…AND…they will be chord you may use later on in your guitar career!

As usual, the lines of each chord diagram going down are the strings on your guitar from bottom (6th string) to top (1st string). The “x”‘s mean that you do not strike or play that particular string, and the numbers refer to your fingers.

I think this song speaks for itself, Click to continue »
