  25. Justin your smiley head is contagious :)

  26. wow this song is a good blast from the past! I am learning this but, the chorus throws me off a lot. my brother quoted at me after listening to this video and me saying I won't ever be half as good.I think I am doing ok as I haven't broken my string since starting this course and re stringing my guitar to your method.
     Thank you Justin Sandercoe for this video lesson it's made me want to learn guitar instead of letting it collect dust.

    brother's yodaish quote  "Practice is the key to mastery. Rinse repeat rinse repeat."

    *OT.only thing can anyone help me with please. I live in a apartment is there a way other then a feedback bung in an acoustic to suspress the sound? or should I buy an electric guitar?

  27. congratulations of his Brazilian fan

  28. JUSTIN! PLEASE READ THIS!! I really want to learn and play a beautiful song for someone special, but can’t figure out how to play it. The name of the song is Graffiti6 – Geoffrey Drake. This might not be the right place to ask you this question, but at least I tried and it would mean the world to me if you can make a tutorial for it. Hope to hear from you soon.

  34. Hi teacher, I wanted to know if there are any Radiohead songs for a beginner, for m confident now that I can play the open chords without any trouble.

  35. I love to hear you play! But I have a hard time with the finger position s especially when
    you use a capo and. The finger position s
    I'm still working on trying to remember
    I know G major. C and D major a,nd Dm.
    I wish I could remember A major and E.
    I really need an easy book without the
    Can you help? 

  36. any particular reason why you changed the original key? Is it so we can avoid the B chord? 

  37. This is one of the best beginner lessons for guitar !

  38. I have also tried to register at your lesson site, 3x. After register, try and login, says no such user. Now what?

  39. I have been struggling with guitar..7 years. I play upside down right strung, left handed. I know 4 chords (yes after 7 yrs, that's it). I am deaf, so have had to memorize what vibes sound like for each chord.  I do not use a pick because I can't feel the vibe(pick distorts vibe). My biggest problem is the strumming, because I can't get the beat. Help?

  40. interesting how you hold the 'a major' shape with middle finger first, is that just a comfort thing or because you are moving to the 'd shape after'?

  41. Nice easy lesson thx Justin.
