Tony’s Guitar Newsletter- Playing a Circle Lick




Dear Friend,


Welcome to the Tony’s Weekly Guitar Newsletter



TODAY’S TOPIC – More Geometry in Your Guitar Playing

We are in the middle of my gig season and I don’t have a lot of time, so I am recycling a couple of older videos.  I am working on some new lessons for next week, so stay tuned for those.

This week’s lesson continues this idea of geometry I explained in last weeks video.  This week we focus in on something called a circle lick. It will probably be one of the most crucial lessons I will ever give to you. It took me a number of years to try to figure out what I was hearing in some of my favorite Rock leads. Well, here it is! Watch my video below and and learn how to play this circle lick.

The Overwhelming Evidence of Slowing Down to Learn Faster

This video examines the value to a guitarist of slowing a riff or solo or song down.   In includes evidence from Google, and from guitar courses and instructors – and evidence from a survey of guitarists.  It’s from my buddy Jim Todd who owns Song Surgeon.   While I am amazed at the number of musicians and guitarists who use slow downers, I am equally amazed by the number who still resist and don’t see the value in it.  If you are one of those, this just might change your mind.  Here it the video link.

Song Surgeon + Learn2Jam 50/50 Promotion

It’s that time of the year when everyone is outside and on vacation and generally just away from their guitars, so to get your attention I am offering a 50% discount on my groundbreaking Learn2Jam Guitar Soloing System.  The concept of geometric shapes mentioned last week and again this week is just one of the things I cover.  Most importantly, I boil down all of the skills and techniques you need to solo into just four songs.  That’s right, if  you learn these four songs that I will teach you note by note, you will have all the tools necessary to take a solo to any song, in any situation. 

BUT, in addition to this, if you buy Learn2Jam, the Song Surgeon folks have also agree to give you a 50% discount of of Song Surgeon Standard.  That means that instead of paying $69 you can grab it for 34.50.  You will see this item offered immediately AFTER you buy Learn2Jam… if you’d like it just select yes, and if not click the NO button.

That’s a totals savings between the two products of $109.  Grab them today!   Here is the order link:

But… I am going to sweeten the pot even more… if you buy BOTH of these items I will throw in a copy of my Guitar Leads Master Volume.  This is an oldie but goodie collection of 425+ guitar riffs and practice segments from some of the best classic rock songs of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.  This is a $97 product – and it’s yours absolutely free when you buy BOTH Learn2Jam and Guitar leads. Please note, this free gift is unadvertised.  It will not appear anywhere on your order, but it WILL BE in your package when it arrives.

Alternatively, if you’d like to just buy Song Surgeon (but at a 35% discount) here is the link to do that.


Keep On Jammin!
