Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
Today's lesson is the lead to the Allman Brothers song Melissa. This is not a step by step lesson but it will get you in the right place and show you the notes that you will need to learn. I think the way to do it is to watch it three or four times then have at it...

Today's lesson is not for the timid! This one will be tough even if you have been playing for a while. This is Richie Blackmore's lead to A Light In The Black which is smokin. This is not a step by step lesson but it should get you in the ballpark...

Today's lesson is an old Cream song from their Wheels Of Fire album. Its a cool song and wont be long and it will be the right time of year to play it. Politician is the name of the song and everyone I know will be tired of all the politics soon...

For today's lesson I thought some lead technics might be nice. Here are ten basic lead guitar moves that will help you out. And remember that the more you practice these moves the faster and more fluent you will become. So loosen up those fingers and most of all enjoy...
Sam’s Lesson of The Day!
Today's lesson is the same as my favorites The Hollies and Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress. This song isn't so tough but the intro is something different and takes some getting used to. I have had this in my lessons before but this one is worth a redo...
Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
Today's lesson is some more Stray Cats. Rockabilly is a great way to break the ice in a bar if everyone is just laid back and not dancing. Guaranteed to get folks up and kicking their heels and of course that means drinking more beer and spending more money...
Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
ZZ Top "Just Got Paid" guitar lesson. When playing live, the necessary slide parts are in Open E, so this version combines some studio guitar parts. The main riff is actually easily to play in Open E with everything hanging in the 3rd and 5th frets...
Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
Today's lesson is part two of a song on Aerosmiths first album. We did part one last week on friday so here comes part two of the song Make It. Old Aerosmith was much more blues and boogie based than it is now and much easier to learn. So loosen up those fingers and Enjoy...
Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
In today's lesson I was cruising the net and found this gal playing the lead to Pink Floyd's Comfortably Numb. I was impressed she looks to me like she has been playing for a while or has unlimited time to practice. Either way she does a killer job and ain't hard to look at either...
Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
The pentatonic scale is different for rock blues and country music. So today I thought I would show you some blues major and minor scales. The blues always comes in handy no matter what type of music you are playing. So in other words the blues is good...

Today's lesson is from Aerosmith's first album a song called Make It. The tuning is a little different but nothing major so you shouldn't have a hard time. This is part one of this lesson so tomorrow we will do part two. Also Steven Tyler doesn't sing like himself in this tune as a matter of fact he…
Sam’s Lesson Of The Day!
For today's lesson we are going to do the same song as my favorites. That would be the Stray Cat Strut by the Stray Cats. When I learned this song I did it on my own by ear and let me tell you Marty sure makes it a lot easier. If you are a rock player you just aren't used to the leads that…
