😎Sean Daniel

A little about me:
Sean Daniel is a man. A man of simple needs and desires. And the one desire, no, the one NEED, that stands above all is to spread the challenges, joy and intellectual stimulus of music to people of Earth and beyond.
Born on the mean streets of upper middle class suburban Chicago, Sean learned the ways of the world through the dizzying heights of success to the lonesome depths of failure and emerged with the promise of a better tomorrow reflecting in his eyes and fiery passion in his belly.
He plays and teaches guitar on his YouTube channel where he regularly releases original music and projects to the adulation of legions of fans, who often compare him to Chris Pratt and one time Ryan Reynolds. He’s currently in the market for a nice leather jacket.

  1. Hey Sean, love the lesson, happy holidays and merry Christmas to you brother. Just one question, when it comes to your master classes are they geared for or can they be used by a person who is completely blind. I’m just wondering I’m interested in your courses, but I am completely blind, just checking, thank you so much. Peace and blessings.

  2. Us that damn Radiohead guitar

  3. We three Kings – Albert, Freddy & BB right?

  4. hey Sean …where is your strange accent from?? emphasizing the LAST syllable all the time…sounds

  5. Love this song! Here is my version of “We Three Kings”

  6. John Henry Hopkins Jr. – Wikipedia › wiki › John_Henry_Hopkins_Jr
    John Henry Hopkins Jr. (October 28, 1820 – August 14, 1891) was an American clergyman and hymnodist, most famous for composing the song "We Three Kings of Orient Are" in 1857

  7. Bother give me on guitar I need guitar mine is broke I have no money

  8. It’s SO cool to get a guitar lesson from an actual member of the Emeryld Ryders! WOW!

  9. Just came here to say your intros are fire. That is all. Happy holidays

  10. Thanks, now I'm gonna be hearing and playing that stupid song for the next two weeks.

  11. Yo Sean the reason why it goes to G7, that’s called a V/V. Because you were in the Key of Am. a V/V is what composers use sometimes to modulate to in this case the relative major key of C. So first section in the key of Am, second section C major.

  12. "Living and dying in three quarter time" J Buffet

  13. Hi Sean! Waiting for the how-to Celtic music 🙂
