  2. Just ran across your channel, great lesson and EASY to follow. Thank you

  3. I can't believe the part at 7:35 was so easy!!! Here is a way to make it even easier! You can play it as a triad chord: G-10, B-9, e-8 then G-7, B-8, e-7.

  4. how to make the music sheet pop up if i acccidentally X'd it out? also, do you have a full version i can listen to?

  5. Maybe I’m an idiot but it’s difficult when I can’t see the strings and the chords at the same time

  6. Thanks bobby…

  7. Very helpful, thanks.

  8. dude you should see about getting a script for Adderall, or white crosses, or at least drink an expresso or 4. Listening to you, makes me nod out.

  9. Great lesson Bro! Love the lead lesson too..The tabs overhead are perfect. Nicely done

  10. it's ok with studio version, but they played this song live in H-minor.

  11. wow that commercial really spoke to me about what you want and go after it

  12. Why dont jus put the tabs on the video, we dont want as a window, We cant recorded it

  13. This is the only song ive ever learned and remembered at heart to a key thanks Bobby!

  14. cheers for providing the lesson mate… but your tutorial is a bit misleading… the notes presented does not correlate to the actual song you're playing. For the first part of the solo you played 12 notes but only showed 10. what in the deuce is that about?

  15. Thanks heaps! great tutorial

  16. I'm a BOC fan and have listened to this song about a million times. I keep hearing everyone make jokes about "needs more cow bell"…… WHAT COW BELL? WHERE? WHEN?, AND EVERYONE ALWAYS SHOWS THE 4 CHORD PICKING, AND THE SOLO, but where is the well known triplets part?

  17. Great lesson .. Thanks

  18. great lesson on a great guitar.
    the beautiful les paul

  19. jg the mexican no manches
