    Brian this sounds like Steve Wariner, CGP. I wish you had made one more backtrack going a little slower. I’m getting it though….thanks so much. I became a Premium member!

  2. Soupy Steve’s Guitar Crap, and other stuff.

    I have that exact guitar.

  3. hey Brian… loved this one… catchy swingy easy to learn… well taught with good explanations for other chords use… great job…

  4. I'm digging this lesson, especially on this Gibson 125. Are you using electric guitar strings and do you play this guitar through a regular electric guitar amp as opposed to an acoustic guitar amp? Thanks Brian. You're not only a great player, but a great teacher as well!

    What’s the t-shirt’s brand?

  6. This is a great lesson! You see this style of playing so much, and I want to learn how to do this. One of my favorite songs that incorporates this is Jason Wilbur's solos on John Prine's Spanish Pipedream, the Sessions at West 54th version. The first solo is more like chikenpicken. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWmG9wCE440

    What in the hell are those downvotes? If you’re so great, make a teaching video and give it away for free haters.

  8. Enjoyed it very much.. Nice sound

  9. Excellent playing…excellent teaching!!! Thanks so much!

  10. This lesson is kind of hokey. I’ll pass. Sorry Brian.

  11. Chet Atkins would be so proud! Great lesson, Brian! Thank you! Cheers, mate! 🙂

    Brian, another great lesson with so many nuggets of cool little licks – very well explained and broken down. Thank you

  13. Forgive me if I am wrong, but wouldn't the F#m (which Brian is playing here as major) be the 6 (vi) chord in the key of A? Not the 2 as he says a couple of times. Bm (which is played here as B7) would be the 2 (ii). I'm guessing there is some Jazz substitution reason for the minor to major changes, but calling the F# the 2 chord in A was confusing to me. Anyone? (Ref. Premiere Guitar's Western Swing 101 lesson).

  14. Wow very nice
