    Hey Griff - If you do a course like this again, may I suggest this format for each audio files.
    (1) slow speed, (2) full speed, (3) full speed (again), (4) full speed and no guitar.

    Once I've learned the lick with the video it's easier to improve using the audio only, and this change to the format would help a lot. Thanks...

    Scotty,
    With just the full speed audio, you can use a tool like Audacity, Song surgeon, or many others to slow it down to any speed you want. That allows you to select the speed that you are able to play at, not just a couple increments (slow and fast), and speed it up in smaller increments as you improve.

    Thanks Tom.
    I agree that there is a software workaround, I'm just hoping that next time I don't have to run it through the software for practice. :)

    That's probably a great idea... I'll definitely keep that in mind for the future. Thanks.

    Griff, If you are taking suggestions for the course, how about a Mambo feel (Think My Baby's Got It)?
