  1. I don't know if anyone has ever told you this but you look like a young Norm Macdonald. Thanks for the lesson!

  2. I was just about to do something stupid, not serious but dumb. Then I had the
    feeling I`d check this lesson out. Working with it four an hour I feel relieved
    and energized. Thank`s Justin!

  3. A lesson on ''Man In The Rain'' by Mike Oldfield, please!

  4. Great!

  5. Hi Justin
    Very good lesson but it's a bit misleading to say that the chords are C, G, Am, F. Seeing as how you have the capo on the 4th fret and you are in standard tuning, surely it should be E, B, Dbm, A but played in C position?

  6. 11 frustrated people have guitars that are collecting dust 😉

  7. Ah dont give me that strumming shit, he doesn't strum, hes not sitting around a camp fire. Anyone can strum.

  8. 3:10 "The A minor that she ever F'd in…"
    I kinda died a little bit xD

  9. can i use capo with classic guitar?

    Justin,before I found your great video lesson, I tried playing this with no capo (barre chords) but found this way to be a real hand-breaker after a few minutes. Do you think this would be down to simply not practicing enough? or would it be a bollox to play with barre chords in general?

  11. hey justin thanks for the tutorial ! is the strumming pattern simple up-down in 8th note ?
