  1. Thanks for this. Although, I'm not sure why in the outro you abandoned full chords for the power chord shape?

  2. It's hard to believe you actually covered this awesome song, I am very thankful – Is there any possibility that you can figure out, learn, and do a video post on the INCREDIBLE tear rendering solo at the end of the song which you mention at the end of this video please PLEASE do it if you can …. PLEASE …. yes I'm yelling, but only in the nicest way :)) Thanks again.

    First and foremost, thank you so much for your lesson and guitar tuition. I think I speak for everyone when I say you do the community a great service with your lessons and we all appreciate it! Your teaching style makes these songs and techniques incredibly intuitive and easy to learn – that is a rare thing to find in a teacher so thank you for that and for being such a tremendous influence in my growth as a guitarist Pop! You've certainly shaped me into the player I am today. :]

    I'd like to make a few song request that you might be down with and hopefully will consider teaching! They aren't terribly difficult songs but would make for fun lessons!
