  8. awesome

  9. I love your teaching style, Sean. Hope we see more from you.

  10. Great song! Great lesson! Thanks for sharing.

  11. Your tab doesn't match your description (or the song). At 2:50 you state the sequence as G G Bm Bm C G C D but the chord sheet shows G G Bm Bm C G D C ; G G Bm Bm C G D C. I believe the actual song uses G G Bm Bm C G D C ; G G Bm Bm C G C D D.

    It is odd the way you change the strumming pattern to omit the up stroke on the 2 + at 3:554:20.

    You show the repeated Outro as G C when I believe it should be more correctly C G


  13. Hey Sean,
    Good to see you again. Great stuff. Excellent explanation of the importance of counting with numbers.
    Will Ian be joining you over here? I got a lot of help from his neverlost system.

  15. Excellent lesson, thanks! Keep making vids of whatever songs you like; I'm gonna watch and learn them all, I hope. I play country, blues, bluegrass and anything else, so just keep making the lessons!! One suggestion: on the chord chart, I would make it easier to follow by making a Chord Letter designation for each beat.

    I'm a Big, Bob Seger Fan, since 1972, You did Good on Lesson, But You played wrong, Intro is 4 bars of G, then song starts, 2 bars of G, 2 bars of Bm, one bar of C, one bar of G, one bar of D, one bar of C, back to G, and on The C walk down (C, Bm, Am, C back to G) I've watched Seger, On the C, instead of going to Bm, use middle finger hit the B (on A string) Strum, then Am, C back to G, But Like I said GOOD Lesson, Just a little off. Thanks

  19. You gained yourself a sub!

  20. thanks for the video, for me the as a beginner I liked the chord change timing info that has always been an issue for me
