  1. You did a very easy to understand lesson. The content was  accurate and not pandering, demeaning, or vulgar in any way. As an intermediate player I like to use you tube for a tool to help learn songs. You just got a new subscriber.Thank you…more Floyd!?

  2. This was awesome. Beginner here but I think I'll be playing this smoothly soon! My fav song.


  4. Exellent lesson dude! I learnt so much from you. You have very good voice

  5. Livingroom Busker

  11. Jakub Wallflower

    Awesome, really easy song! Thanks so much dude! 🙂

  12. Darrin Vest-Robbins

    thanks man, I find using a video other than tabs is a lot more helpful  to learn

  13. Wow, it will take years to learn to me 😀

  14. Thank you for making this. before this I dint know the C7 chord just the normal C major. So not only did you teach me a really cool song, but you also taught me a new chord.

  15. thank you man this is fucking awesome

  16. Thank you! I have some others in my Guitar Tutorial playlist, if you're interested. Peace, Jim….

  17. Very good lesson!

  18. Thanks for the feedback, you're right about the Emadd9, I actually saw that later, after I recorded this lesson. The backwards strum Emadd9 is spot on, though I still don't use it since my downstrokes that follow don't sound right. Thanks again, yes, an easy and great song. I recently recorded a new cover, live recording, please check it out when you have some time. Peace, Jim….

  19. Check again in the first 3-4 minutes, lots of detail on the backwards strum that starts the song, and the down strokes too. But to answer your question: the main strum pattern is laid out starting at the 5:07 part of the video. Peace, Jim…..
