  2. As a Pink Floyd fan I must say , thank you☺☺☺

  3. Really good!

  4. Look, play and sing like David Gilmour, and teach even better than he! 🙂

  5. Thank you for this lesson , very good vocals too, very nice…

  6. ok….. now what?

  7. How does one teach when they aren't even playing the song correctly? One of the many issues is, it's not Em, it's Emadd9.

  8. You used CM7 yet, so my suggest is Em9/7.

  9. Good job friend! To colaborate I suggest you to use Em9/7 instead Em, and C7M instead C. Al the best to you!

  10. What mic were you using?

  11. Not to be picky but the 1st chord is Em9 with an up stoke of the strings..

  12. can you do LESSONS by rush ?

    Is there something i can sub for the D7#9? My fingers are unable to make that chord, my pinky cannot move side to side while I'm pushing with my ring finger.
