  1. Am I the only one who can think of only fools and horses every time I hear this song?

  2. man u r Great!!!!!!

  3. I wish with all my heart if someday you will work on "I Put Spell on You" By CCR,Thanks for your lessons.

  4. Whilst the strumming patterns and the lyrics you showed were not necessarily true to the original, that's ok. Artistic license, and all that. But, the coda starts of with 3 measures of D and one measure of Bm. That 12 beats of D and 4 of Bm. Apart from that, can't fault your chord sequences. Well done and thanks for your generosity.

  5. Nice tutorial! Keep it up!

  6. can you teach Tennessee Whiskey

  7. I can`t seem to find foreigner songs lessons ,like "i want to know what love is" and also"waiting for a girl like you"at least not any accurate one`s ,if possible can you do some tutorials of those please?
