  3. Thanks Erich – love that Tele! Great picking also!

  4. Great video Erich, the song just sounds like every "Stalkers" theme song…..creepy if you listen to his words. But that's just me. See you inside the UGS!

  5. You know Youtube is gonna claim/demonitise your video for the intro right ? great playing tho.

  6. Wow! Superb technical mastery, cover, and lesson. The song is one of my top 10 singles ever written for its lyrics, melody, and mathematical/theoretical chordal perfection . Reminds me of two other of my favourite singles..for their perpetual motion chord progressions (Kashmir and the ending of I am the walrus which concludes with a chromatic descending rotation of a major scale GFEDCBAG repeating) All 3 Put me in a trance. THANK you for making my day!

  7. The mark of a great teacher is when I watch a lesson and feel like I can do this. Thank You!

  8. Awesome video. Knowing what effects to use and there settings is a huge bonus to getting the right sound. Thanks Erich.

  9. This is one of those songs that sound totally simple to play, but when you break it down it is a 5 to 6 fret stretch pain fest. Great lesson! Again!!

  10. really awesome lesson Eric. That's the song and all the tone that goes with it. The complete package as they say. Thanks

  11. Will you teach purple rain by prince

  14. That first position stretch is a good one, I can't stretch to make that chord ring out

  15. Ahhh, feel the burn!
