  1. I totally agree with Jumboworms below, Outstanding visual effects and discussion as you go through teaching the viewer.  I subscribed long ago and also made donations to help keep you going as I would encourage others to do the same.  Thank you for what you do.

  5. I am only 13 years old, and your lessons have helped me learn so many songs. Truly the best teacher on youtube. And an incredibly beautiful song, by one of, if not the best guitar players of all time, arguably.
