TIP! Don't forget to take a look at the tab that comes with every lesson. Sometimes it is easier to get a concept in your head if you can see it written out. Especially if you are struggling with anything, instead of driving yourself crazy watching the video a million times - take a break and just sit and look at the tab. Sometimes that really helps.
Of course with Guitar Pro files you can listen to the example and loop or slow it down to really see what is going on, so remember to use all the tools at your disposal as you are working through these lessons.
