Geoffrey is a great guitar player and has a YouTube channel where he´s playing well known solos and show them in both original and a slow tempo. Examples on solos he shows are David Gilmour on ”Another brick in the wall” and Steve Lukathers on ”Rosanna” with Toto.
He has a great sound and he´s very accurate with the solos he shows.

Hello, I love Rock music, I love Easy listening music, I love Classical music, I love Blues music, I love Orchestra music, as a matter of fact,....I love music in a wide range. But most of all, I love it when other people enjoy music. I hope these video's will encourage other people to play the guitar as well.
First I play the song at normal speed and after that I play the song at 70% from the normal speed and have it at a close up.
I use the program "guitar and drum trainer" to play over the backing tracks.
The backing tracks are mainly from http://www.guitarbackingtrack.com/. (thanks for the makers of the site)
I don't have or use tabs for the songs. I think it's a good way to learn the songs on the guitar by ear so you can develop your musical feeling and find fingerpositions that suits you the best. In the video's I'll show you what I came up with.
I hope you will enjoy the video's and I hope they will give other guitarlovers a start to play the songs as well.
