  1. Rob, your lesson videos can be excruciating to get into, you ramble so much! "Downtune half a step that means half a step down which is half of a full step a step is two frets so half of that is one fret you don't need to but you do and you will you can use an acoustic or not could be an electric which I prefer as I'm holding one but you can use an acoustic but the strings are harder to bend unless you're playing an electric with 12's but you shouldn't as you're a beginner you need a pedal tuner or a clip on tuner or another tuner there are many types of tuners you could use a tuning fork or you don't but do use one get a quality one that should be your first investment or you can invest in something else but I'd rather buy a good pedal buy a pedal before a guitar you'll practice air guitar but you'll be in tune. Anyway, start by putting your index finger on your left hand on the third fret on the fifth string, that's a C bit half a step down, so B#."

  2. God bless this video… i knew the minor pentatonic, but had no idea what to do with it other than go up and down, but after watching this it helped so much! Thank you!

  3. more please….great explanation

  4. sorry man but this is truly ridiculous, you tell that this is a lesson for real beginners who just barely play some open string chords and yet your second sentence is: and now we will tune one half step down 😀 Because this is what those beginners dream of as they just learn how to tune guitar at all 😀 It's so random 😀

  5. Thank you

  6. That was a good one Rob!

  7. There's really only one tutorial series which covers everything from newbie to expert across the genres and that's the free lessons uploaded by Justin Sandercoe.

  8. Been a fan for a while, I need more of these!!!!!
    Make more blues tutorials. The balance of theory and Guitar Hero noises was perfect. I suspect that most people watching will be like me, love playing guitar but are scared off by THEORY. This vid is helps to shoe how theory can advance their playing.

  9. grrrreetings, I'm not strictly a beginner but guess I am when it comes to my lead playing. I hadn't touched my guitar for nearly a year as I got stuck in a rut. Stumbled across this video from one of the andertons videos, and you've inspired me to start playing and working on my playing again.

  10. for beginners please use a guitar that has dots or other types of fret markers

  11. By far the best lesson I have seen. Thanks

  12. Hi Rob, I am currently studying theory and am learning ok but Christ is it boring! I have struggled to find lessons that are creative, relatively easy and useful to ingrain what I am learning…until now. This simple lesson is ideal to put into practice those hours of scales and can be built on as I progress. Many thanks and please, more for this level of beginner please!

  13. MORE MORE MORE!!!!!!

  14. thank you rob!
