  5. Did u mean pinky on 4th string u said ring finger twice!?

  6. Shit guys do. I would have chosen a more shredaholic looking guitar for this video, regardless how good that guitar plays and sounds. That guitar should be reserved for talking to your daughter about birds, bees, and blow jobs. Maybe put another humbucker on it, even if it isn't hooked up. It's just a guy thing, ….. to our detriment. Thanks, Mom, for reminding me about function over presentation.

  7. Thank you… Great lesson. Please add a link to the naming lesson.

  8. Isn't this the woman that started Guitar Tricks?

  14. Im no expert but i think if your going to teach power chords you should also use the distortion etc to give people something inspiring to practice.This was a good lesson but you cant play power chords like your in a library.Just sayin
