  4. You didnt teach the very start of the video

  5. What the hell are you doing with that pick in your hands!?

  6. Marty, did you ever get to the lesson with all the licks? I can’t find it,

  7. Great lesson, down to the point and very well displayed. Others spend too much time describing note by note and makes it very difficult to follow. Thanks
