Tony’s Guitar Newsletter- Have circle riffs




Dear Friend,


Welcome to the Tony’s Weekly Guitar Newsletter



TODAY’S TOPIC – Learn this Blues lead

When playing a solo, so many thoughts run through your head in fractions of seconds. One of my favorite rock “go-to” licks is the “circle.” (If you’re not sure what this is, check out my “Learn To Jam” course.) In this lead I play here, I use a “half circle” to help get me finish with an up-the-neck note. In addition, I have thrown in a short chromatic run which uses the pinky and takes a while to execute in a smooth fashion. After you have learned to play this lead segment, you truly will have accomplished some important blues, advanced-level playing articulation. Good luck.

The tablature for this practice lesson is below and following that is the audio of what it should sound like in both full and half speed.

Full Speed Audio 

Half Speed Audio

If you missed last weeks video on the circle lick,  you can view it using the link below:

20 0f 24 Guitar Students are Using This Tool

Did you note that this week’s lesson provides the audio in both a full and half speed format.  There is a reason for this, and we talked a little about the usefulness and power of slowing down audio for guitarists in the last newsletter. 

The Youtube video below is about a instructor from North Carolina that was introduced by one of his students to the slow down concept.  Now, not only does he use the software, but 20 of his 24 students also use the this software.

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!
