  1. Once again Brian, Thank you! I always find things in your lessons that enrich my playing to become the type of player I envision. Sometimes I think there's not enough appreciation for these older styles that we treasure. At some point I'd like to share and teach it like you.

  2. BrPaul FenderBass

  3. Such a great instructional!

  4. Something my "slow" hand can actually keep up with. Thanks

  5. Very nice as usual!

  6. Андрей Невоград



  8. I decided I had to drop another note and thank you once again for 'the how' of you inhabiting your lessons. This is another really fun composition, full of different influences that sound as one, while still providing variety and flavour in all the right places. So sweet. I also want to thank you for consistent reminders about chord mapping and showing where notes are pulled from and the gift the guitar is in making things transferable. From what I can see and hear, you must appeal to a large, dynamic bunch of players. Thank you for all of it, Brian. Musically, Sue

  9. Oh man to bad I’m heading into work got me wanting to play this now!

  10. Very sweet. Active melody is the best £50 I spend every year without a doubt

  11. And where did you get that guitar? What type is it? 🙂 it's super nice

  12. Can someone tell me from 1-10 how difficult this may be? 🙂

  13. Assuming that's a Byrdland. The tones are amazing!!

  14. Great Call and Response. Challenging for me but thats the way you learn. Thanks Brian.

  15. As is almost always the case, wonderful. Thank you.

  16. Brian That is an awesome composition, Nice guitar too (Eric Clapton) 🙂

  17. The man upstairs would approve. By that I mean the dude that lives upstairs from me, he’s a real jazz/blues guy

  18. Definitely one of you're best playing/lessons for a long time. Not that the others are bad, but this one is on another level.
