Step #3 Become an Awesome Guitar Player thru using Song Surgeon 3!
Hi, my name is David O'Toole and I'm a guitar player from Ireland (that's me playing in the video). I've played the
guitar for 30 years at this stage so I know what it takes to move forward on the instrument. I've also taught many
students, and I continue to love the guitar as much as when I started.

Song Surgeon 3 and Youtube/Video Sites
Song Surgeon 3 - the Essential Basic
The main purpose of Song Surgeon 3 is that it allows you to take any piece of music (a guitar solo for example), and
slow it down to a snails pace without changing the key.
It is suitable for any guitarist no matter what skill level they are at. For example, I'm playing 30 years and I use it every
day. I have students who are playing only months and this is the first thing I recommend to them. Their advancement is
uncanny once they know and use this type of approach.
In fact I know that it is so good and SO effective, that I even built this dedicated site to it! It has the power to change
the known guitar world and turn it upside down. And all for the better I'm so glad to say.
Song Surgeon 3 - Highest Class Sound Engine Used
When you slow down a guitar solo or piece of music, this new version sounds the same quality-wise as the original and
it makes it so much easier to hear and emulate what any player is doing. ANY player, ANY Style!
For example at the extreme, you could take a solo by any Speed Metal Guitarist and hear it as if he was sitting in front
of you and playing it in slow motion.
It takes someone like Michael Angelo Batio, Gary Moore, Django Rheinhardt, Buckethead, The Hellecasters, Chet
Atkins, Andy McKee, Eric Johnson, Guthrie Govan, Lee Ritenour, Steve Lukather, Neal Schon, Slash, The Edge
(U2), Jonny Buckland (Coldplay) ... even speed monster and maestro Paul Gilbert, and reduces their playing to a
humble crawling speed! Hey Paul, you slow poke snail! :)
You'll hear every fine detail believe me. It doesn't matter what style of guitar you want to learn and even master. Its a
'No Holds Barred' software learning tool. I'd even class it as 'dangerous' :), and any investor can be too with its use.
My advice? Don't get left behind by using Tab. Learn directly from the masters themselves. That is the key to becoming
a seriously hot guitarist. When you have compliments coming from numerous people you have played in front of, you
can thank me later :).
The Multi Style Uses of Song Surgeon 3
Because of its very nature, you can use it on any style of music. You can hear every little nuance of a player. Such as
how does a Country guitarist make his guitar sound like a lap-steel. Where exactly does he put in the vibrato?, what
string is he bending?
You can use it to easily learn Blues, Rock, Metal, Jazz, Pop, Grunge ... ANY style, there are no restrictions. And the
best thing? You will be learning it from the source. From the original recording. No more dodgy Tabs which are totally
wrong anyway. Tab is not how to learn the guitar if you want to become a respected and red-hot player. That is not
how your favorite guitarist learned his instrument I can assure you.
Tip: Ever thought of learning soloing from a red hot violinist? This is how to do it. Man some of these guys are red hot!
Song Surgeon 3 Updates
The original version of Song Surgeon was to me, a touch of sheer genius in itself. But version 3 takes even that to new
previously unreached limits. The main update concerning us guitarists is the new sound engine. This latest update allows
you to slow down any piece of music without degradation in sound. This makes a huge difference to make learning any
particular guitar solo a LOT easier (sorry for shouting but it is a crucial new addition).
Insert Silences Anywhere
A brilliant innovation has been added to version 3 - its my favorite new addition. You add custom timed silences after
every loop. This allows you to play the loop and then play it on your guitar yourself. So you can work on any tricky bit
before the loop plays again.
With this setup you can work on any troublesome or difficult parts of the solo. Phenomenal little addition this, don't
Easy Creation of Custom Audio Files
With Song Surgeon Pro version, you can easily create create multiple loops. For example you could have a guitar solo
playing at normal speed, then 70% speed, then 50%, right down to 10%.
You can also put counts in at the start of each loop - this is a very clever addition.
Export to Your Computer
When you have setup a loop in this way, you can then export it as an mp3 soundfile to play on your PC or Ipad. My
advice? Build a collection - further details and tips on this approach below.
Also included in this killer software is a patch called 'Sniffer Technology'. This enables you to download and extract a
music file from video sites such as Youtube and play them in Song Surgeon 3.
Slowing down a solo without changing the key and having crystal clear sound at lower speeds is so powerful that I
can't emphasize that enough here, but you do even more. You can heavily adjust the EQ on any piece you may be
working on. This allows you to bring out the Guitar in a mix and highlight it so that it stands out from the rest of the mix.
You'll be amazed at easy it is to hear what a killer guitarist is doing on any solo.
Another essential extra is the inclusion of a Music Pad/Transcription Area. This is way cool. No more bits of paper
lying around and getting lost. Think of it as a great time saver. Build a little collection and you won't lose it.
I'm all fired up just writing about it and my guitar is sitting right beside me. I have some difficult Thin Lizzy/Gary Moore
solo's to learn for a rehearsal tonight, and guess how I'm going to learn them note for note! Yep that's right, Song
Surgeon is ready to go on my PC :)

Song Surgeon 3 Guitar Learning Plan
Here's what I would suggest to you if you want to learn fast, quality guitar playing. Before you start, make a folder on
your PC specifically for this. Put it right on your desktop.
#1 Choose 3 of your fave guitarist's
#2 Choose 3 of your favorite licks from these 3 players
#3 Run them thru Song Surgeon 3 - take the licks apart and learn them note for note including hammer-ons,
pull-offs, vibrato and fine touches.
#4 Incorporate these 3 licks into your own style. Change them to suit however you like. Its best to change them
slightly to create your own style. That will happen naturally as you use them over different songs.
#5 Practice playing them over a suitable backing track
#6 Practice them with your band in a song you are doing
#7 GIG Them!
# Start working on another 3 licks to add to your style
After a few weeks of this you won't recognize your guitar
soloing. It will come on in leaps and bounds. Remember
the key is thru daily practice sessions using Audio. I
suggest at least 30 minutes a day, every day. This will far
outdo cramming in 6 hours on the weekend. Do as much
time as you can allow. Yngvie Malmsteen is reputed to
have practiced 10 hours a day in his early days!
But you don't need to do that much, that depends on what
level you want to reach. At the risk of repeating myself,
the key to fast learning on the guitar is:
DAILY and Structured Practice!
