  6. Marty you consistently make the best guitar videos. i love you

  7. Could you please teach kiss like real people do by Hozier

  8. Are you tuned down half a step because when I play it I’m half a step up from what your doing and I’m tuned a whole step down from Em standard tuning

  9. Welll played Marty I’m not in to his music as a whole but I love his guitar playing, thanks to you

  10. Thank you for this tutorial!

  11. Marty's editor goofed :0

  12. I really love this song and love this tutorial even more! You've simplified it down well, and broken it up into good sections. Maybe get your singing voice out to help contextualise it a bit at time? 😛

    Really looking forward to being able to play this well 🙂

  13. Any chance you can break down James Bay’s cover of The Best?

    Thanks man i really appreciate the effort you put in every single time to teach every single note. Loved it <3

    If you have a capo, put it on the second fret and tune your guitar to standard tuning. Tune gently to avoid string breakage. Take your capo off and you have a guitar tuned a whole step down.

  17. Next Tutorial on James Bay – Bad
