St. James Infirmary Blues

Tab, backing track and in-depth analysis of the melody available to all members.

I went down to St. James Infirmary,
Saw my baby there,
Stretched out on a long white table,
So cold, so sweet, so bare.
Let her go, let her go, God bless her,
Wherever she may be,
She can look this wide world over,
But she'll never find a sweet man like me.

Hi Robert,

that's a nice lick to have in one’s repertoire! Actually it doesn’t sound especially Hendrixish to me, but it certainly nails Billy Gibbons’s trademark lick in the intro of "Gimme All Your Lovin‘"...

Mystery Scale

I am actually rating you on your constant and determined desire to simplify what you can to help your students. You are the best! Being left handed you don't know how thrilled I was to see your new flip option for lefties. Thanks!

Extended Triads-Harmonizing Major Scale

Robert, all of your triad lessons are excellent and very useful. This particular lesson is fantastic! Your demonstration of the triad shapes for each note of the C Major scale on different strings across the fretboard has definitely helped both my playing and my understanding of the guitar. The chord shapes are very cool and relatively easy to find and move around the fretboard. I am also following your suggestion of improvising little licks and melodies from the scale while playing the triads. I love this lesson and am now transposing these shapes to other major keys. Thank you again!

Very special,,,!

Great Blues you can use DVDS set.

Hi Robert
You are by far the best Teacher out there. Your playing is incredible. I was wondering if you have any lessons on Frank Marino's style. Also I can't find where to pick up some tabs on your site to go with the lessons. Thanks for everything.

Choice material!

Lovin' It! -- Nice job on a blues classic. If I didnt have a tin ear, I think I could pick it up on the tones alone...alas...any advice on training the ear? Thanks!

Ear training - make it part of your practice time to sing along to melodies, licks, solos, etc. The more you do this, the better your ear will become.

by Tony T on
Now I understand

Now I understand why you do not post tab all the time, I picked this lesson up by ear. And its awesome! your so cool man.

Slow 60 Blues

I love all your lessons and this slow 60 blues is a great package from rhythm to solos that helps me to put it all together in better understanding the blues. I prefer purchasing the package as I have little time to learn as I work so much so joining the membership is not so useful for me as much as the downloads are.

Thank You for all your dedicated work and lessons,

P.S. Would like to learn that turnaround in the SRV style triplet chord tone lick.

by Eddie Bray on

Hey Robert, Nice lick! Reminds me of a lick Scott Henderson uses; that is, starting off by stacking 5ths. Can't wait to sit down and get it under my fingers.

by jay on

excellent way of teaching , cool lick ,thanks Robert

by John on
a minor lick-golden nugget

Excellent lesson Robert, and I agree, it definitely has a Gary Moore sound to it.
Please do more of this kind of thing.
Thank You

Traveling Country lick in 'D'

Wow, this is great Robert - you are very talented. Say - do I need to know my scales to play this successfully?
Alan G.

No, but it never hurts to know your scales! In fact, this lick can HELP you learn your scales. I certainly hope so.
