    If you have already contacted your local guitar tutor
    Or looked at the guitar lesson subscription web sites,
    then I'm sure you already know how expensive they can be.
    You probably thought – "That's far too much for me to afford".
    You can save thousands of dollars in tuition fees.

  16. thanks ever so much for this lessonon how to use a different A chord which is more beneficial in moving from that chord to D, E found that it also helps with E7 & im pretty sure I'll fi nd others .now I've just got to let my fingers relearn how to play "How Many Flowers Grow In An English Garden"using this new technique

  17. @NateMantle I didn't even know I had the top rated comment. What you say its right, sometimes it depends on the next chord you're playing but if you play the chord 2,1,3, the first finger (1) will not be near where the fret ends and that may make the second string buzz a little bit. Also it depends on the person, I find it very uncomfortable to play it like he says in the video but other people may find it cool.

  18. very rewarding and well thought out lesson for the beginner

  19. @Alrreola its more easy if you want to be stuck playing shit. you gotta get a good technique unless you want to be stuck playing power chords or kumbayah your whole life you wank

  20. lol "most Easiest"
