Learning the solo in You shook me all night long!  It's hard to make it sound good.  I can't get the pinched harmonics in it.  It sounds much better with them but I won't worry about them for now!  Just trying to get the reverse bends down and the ghost bends in the song.  I'm really working hard to get this song down as perfectly as possible but it's going to take some time.  I always wanted to play this song on the guitar.  So motivating!

ZZ top ZZ top ZZ top
Writing it 3 time want help with the harmonic but playing it over and over again that will work.
There is a great lesson at guitarlessons365, best I ever seen on making these things you should check it out.
ZZ top ZZ top ZZ toprally in the solo to Lagrange he plays the many and there cool and the place I try to send you will make it look easy cause it really is you just need the right training all I had was a record player , look at what you have today

Billy Gibbons is incredibly talented.  I will watch any vid on this technique.  I still am in a quandry about this pinched harmonics and I guess I will just have to keep on practicing. 

You shook me solo might seem easy but I asure you it's far from it.  It's taken me so many hours of practice to even get the first 6 bars right!

Licks listen to this one. You see how if you don't have a high gain distortion setting they will not get the same sound.

And how you take the pick at an angle which is why I told you to rotate your wrist

Hey TB thank you.  Had 10 minutes in between doing the mundane stuff and watched this guy intently.  I tried it and right off the bat got it the technique!  I'm a happy and less frustrated girl now.  A million thank yous!

I just learnt that slapping/whacking the strings with quite some force and very often, isn't very good for the strings...

Just don't put a hole through that nice Taylor of yours  ;)

The percussive slapping thing is a lot of fun though, and can spice chord progressions up quite a bit

Thanks TB, This has cleared up my issue, I was worried that I was doing it wrong with the pick sideways (It was the easiest way I could work out how to do it) it wasn't made very clear in Justin's video.

I've also been practising the pinch harmonics unplugged (as he mentions in the video), can't be arsed lugging the amp down to the sitting room.

She's braced for mediums, she should be able to take a medium beating like this.

I took off an old 056 off my dad's old 12-fret parlor, now I can at least practice until I can change my strings tomorrow.
Now it's just a matter of finding the right set... dang.

I currently have:
D'Addario EJ17, EJ18, EXP12 (opened, missing high E) and EXP17
Dean Markley Helix 2083 & Alchemy GoldPhos 2048
GHS IB40M
Martin MSPLUS3200 & MSPLUS 4200
I think I want to try the Helix ones or the Alchemy again.

Hey Guys
TB and licks he forget to say your finger will seem like metal.
I think this guy my be the best teacher on the planet.
Unlike Danny he has a nice head and his finger look like spiders but if you research him he is a machine player.
I have posted in other forums is there anybody better than this man and I have got ether nothing or No.
Fuzzy head can play.
Has some great advice.

PS
I bet if you make a extra hole in a Taylor or Martin it will still play and sound fine just a little more bass or treble but if you break the bridge it will really be a hard one to fix , broke one bridge, I sold that one.
Like me pushing the back of my neck while holding the body, I may lose my head stock one day

Thanks for the link Steveo!  Can I just call ya Steve?  Forget the o?

What Guthrie Govan is saying in his vids totally makes sense.  Don't play a passage fast if you can't. Makes for learning bad habits!! Play it at the speed that you can.

Learning the intro of Church Street Blues. I transcribed it in Guitar Pro 5 but I got the timing wrong and I can't shift the notes around! LOL.

Well I can learn it anyway.

Yeah with some things slow is the only way to go, with the sweeping stuff or economy picking at some point you will have to just go for the speed.

Cue  it a great song, same rule go's slow but at some point you too will have to just go for it. try solders joy as well.
I thought fuzzy head said play whats in your heart and mind.
what ever he said I listen he is a very good teacher.
Note to self try to find his lesson free , yeah I am a little stoned morphine kind of does that.
Thank G sus for Coffee.

Well I can learn it anyway.
I got guitar pro 5 was going to get 6 I learn nothing from it but I wish I could work it.
There is no b minor in Church street C  Am F G I think are the only chords.
Just have a Tele here and yeah it buzzes too much to play church street blues.
The main riff is like a hammer on 2rd fret G string playing in C form then it's to 4 notes back to back one is a F chord triad and the other is open G which would be all open stings seem I saw 000 I would need a magnifying glass and really may not can see that,
 pain meds got me seeing more fuzzy

Don't hear that one, I would not even think it would be there send copy of song.
There only B minor in the key of C is the 7 chord which would make it a minor 7 flat 5 .
I have play this song longer than you have live on this planet, so prove me wrong  ;D

You're basically dissin' me because I'm younger than you, right?
That's stupid - it's about ears, not age.

It might not be an Am, but the Bm or something that sounds close to it is there.

I am not Dissin you in any way I am stating a fact no B minor there, and yes may ears can me this.
I listen my ears say no B minor and there is nothing even close to a B minor there I did hear and inversion of the G chord which contain the B in the bass A string.
Sorry that stating a fact that you are looking at a sound in the wrong way would upset you.
I am only say you barking up the wrong tree.
Good luck.
It is about ears and in time with the right training everyone can build there finger and ears to do things.
Our brains and our heart really make the music the ears and finger do what the brain and heart tell them to do

I feel the need for speed! 

Can someone recommend some speed exercises.  I can play Home Sweet Alabama but can't get it quite up to speed.  How does one practicing for speed?

Slow is smooth. Smooth is fast. Play with a metronome gradually increasing the tempo while playing smoothly.

Yeah, its D C G ,
Has a great rock lick that turns all blues grass quick but you need to get the timing first the 4/4 click really is needed.

Cue where you have that Bm try playing this instead.

That's G Major inversion with a B in the bass note.
