  1. I am just a sucker for bright twangy tone. This song just doesn't sound the same on other guitars. Not that they are had. There is just something about a tele.

  8. Did he actually hit an open string breath? LOL!!! Maybe Luther came back as an Italian guy in England!! Great video.

  9. Johnny lifted this song from a song called "Crescent City Blues", it's on youtube check it out…

  10. can you do I Walk The Line

  11. awesome video sir.

  12. When on the solo part, how do you put your fingers correctly, when you say; "second fret on the G, second fret on the B and fifth fret on the top E string". I can hardly m do it. I have normal-sized hands and fingers for a guy, but when I try putting my index finger down to hold both G, B and little finger on E and then strum it, the sound is weird or distorted because I also manage to put my index finger down on the top E string on the second fret where I only should be holding G,B. How should I avoid that? It's extremely uncomfortable for the index finger to only hold down G,B and then somehow "raise" it up again to avoid accidently touching E on the same fret. As this video informs, the E should only be held down by little finger on fifth fret.

  14. Great lesson wish I had you when I was a kid my teacher was not that great.

  15. Is that rancid black finger grease on your fretboard or is that some kind of relic job?   http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20150508-these-mites-live-on-your-face    and on your fretboard.  Zippo it cleans and conditions!

  16. Just wanted to thank you for the lesson. I feel that it was very well thought out and presented in a logical, easy to follow way. That guitar reminds me of a Blackguard. I am now viewing your website. I would love to learn more songs from you. Great job!
