  1. First, I LOVE that Yamaha! Second, that stretch to the 2nd fret is easy (for those having difficulty) IF you pull your elbow closer to the side of the guitar, and your palm closer to the lower part of the back of the neck, while stretching for it (as I see you do). I am also grateful that you play without a thumb pick–I really thought it was needed. It is a great lesson, and you prove you are a capable instructor. I will look into your finger-picking course, because I can play "Hana" by Masaaki Kishibe; "Signe" by Clapton; "Classical Gas", Mason Williams; "Dust In The Wind". Also, other tunes by Masaaki Kishibe, and "Twilight" by Kotaro Oshio. So, as you can see, I'm not a total beginner, but finger-picking songs like "Sandman" is an entirely different beast. So, I really thank you for this upload. Boom-chuck is something I just never wanted to try, as I felt it was beyond my level. Thanks to you, I'm going to give Sandman a go. Any suggestions as to getting the boom-chuck together? Thanks, again!

  2. My hands are way too small for this one …:(

  3. Just when I was practicing the alternate thumb picking technique… thnks bro
