  1. Paddy O'Driscoll

    It's R&B

  2. Beautiful, I’ll start on this tonight. But Brian, are you really going to bring out a new guitar and not talk about it?
    Your mid week email said you were going guitar shopping so I assume this is the guitar you really didn’t need. It is a beauty.

  3. This started out sounding like The Spinners….ended with Pink Floyd…..Beautiful!

  5. I'm very happy I joined as a premium member… I think your site will undoubtedly help me with learning the type of phrasing I'm looking to instill into my own playing since I'm not into the 'speed' thing… I had been watching your videos for a couple years and every time it would go to the second half I would get frustrated… Well, no more!… There's a lot of subtle bends, slides, and moves that you apply I had never given thought to and I have already grabbed a couple of those ideas from you… I have no excuse NOT to improve… This is very helpful stuff Brian, thanks…

  6. Progression sounds a little bit like Mac Demarco's Still Together.

  7. This is amazing


    So glad I’ve gone premium

  9. I subscribed a while back and have viewed a lesson or two … but this one seemed exceptional to me… I really enjoyed it..( startin to warm up to ya as a teacher). I'll watch it a few (dozen) more times and get this down… love that guitar you have there… I'll start watching more of your videos…'sides you play great …crisp and clean all the time. Good stuff … l8r kid

  11. John Bosquet-Morra
