    nice lesson—very detailed and thanks for pointing out how difficult and unreasonable it would be to try to play both lead and rhythm on this awesome song—definitely need 2 guitars on this one—-thanks a lot!!!

  7. Great lesson.. thanks!

  8. Holy cow, man what a fantastic job. Well done. Many thanks.

  9. YOU are a fantastic teacher. Is it possible for you to do a lesson on Tree Top Flyer by Steven Stills – I've seen a few youtube attempts – just not the right sound – YOU have a knack for the right sound me thinks! Also maybe Three Roses? Thanks Mr……um…Mr. Shutup 😀

  10. Oh cmon, it doesn't sound "dumb".. playing the lead then jumping into the rhythm…the riff makes the song!….just got to be creative,lol

  11. hey buddy how about a tutorial on my favorite America tune sister golden hair. what a classic.

  12. Great tutorial and very detailed. One of my all time favourite songs and bands. Thanks for posting and the enthusiasm for the song. Well done.

  13. Thank you for the upload. I enjoy the stories info behind the songs.

  17. Great tutorial. You pick great songs to teach. Thanks.

  18. Great info on the strumming, and great band/song, horse with no name was the first song I learned 2 cords thanks
