  3. Hi Brian!!
    Which microphone are you using?
    Good lesson!!

  4. Great lesson. Is that a Sigma guitar?

  5. I swear I hear some leads that resembled The Allman Brothers Band, especially when you went higher on the fretboard.

  6. Sounds awesome and makes me feel good…very similar to Don Felder style playing.

  7. Most tutorials teach us how to play a song. You teach us how to play the guitar, as well as the song.

    Awesome lesson, Brian. Thank you very much for simplifying the guitar playing.

  9. Playin that guitar

  10. Great lesson Brian. I love the lessons where getting to the chord shape / triad and noodling out fill licks takes priority over playing a precise melody, note for note. When you’re in a jam, that’s the reality, right? You’re trying to remember the chords and chord changes more so than an exact melody line. This lesson teaches how to move around on a G chord, then switch to playing over a C chord, Am, etc. As this becomes 2nd nature, then you can start to design specific melodies, right? So practical!

    Folks, I’m at my one year anniversary with AM. Best thing I ever did for guitar.

  11. To me the song is an acoustic country blues in the Allman Brothers Band vein… Well done catchy tune.. Thanks so much…
