  1. what do you think of peter greens fleetwood mac jams

  2. Really enjoyed those tasty Allman Bros style licks. Thanks for the lesson:)

  3. Even as a 40+ year player, I've been a member for a long time just because its fantastic how you teach, and as I said, after 40+years, I LOVE practicing these and other lessons, just to keep the chops sharp. I tend to go through phases, ( classic, hard, metal, blues..) but these lessons always make me want to practice and no matter what style I'm into, they are GREAT for making your hands do things they might not otherwise. Tools in the tool box kinda thing.. Thanks again Brian. See ya on the site.

  4. Excellent lesson. I am a Active Melody subscriber. It’s a great value and I am not paid to shill….but I wouldn’t say no! Great stuff and I am not a big Dead fan.

  5. I know this is just a 2 chord backing track , but I think it would be cool in your videos if you played the rhythm part before you played any leads so a guy knew what chords we are playing over. Thanks for posting theses videos , I really don't mean to complain. Just an idea.

  6. Awesome Brian, always a ton of stuff, top quality Dude — Thank you!
