    I just have to say this was hands down the best tutorial I have watched to
    date… ive always been a music lover but no musical talents, so when I was
    given an electric guitar I thought I better make use of it

    Thanks a lot for your video, this has been the best video ive seen so far
    and very easy to follow and at a nice slow pace! I learnt a few chors a
    long time ago when i was a child but they always stuck in my head, now 27
    years later ive decided to buy myself an electro acoustic and ive had ot
    now for a few days.

    You never got to that alternate G voicing. BtW many of your chord
    fingerings are different than in my fretting chart. Confusing to have
    different “authoritative” directives.

    people say many things about your teaching……I can say u r simply
    superb. I felt like i am listen to my brother rather to my teacher.

    I love that there is as much explaining as there is playing.Usually in
    other tutorials,there is a lot of playing and less explaining.Great
    video!!!!Just stumbled on it and am really hoping there are more.

  • s-viv 2 years ago

    Hey Jonathan, great video. I just picked up the guitar a few weeks ago, and
    I think this is a great way to practice. I do this for a few minutes in the
    morning before I leave for work and it is great practice for a beginner and
    I find it really helpful.
    I think you did a great job here.

    If you push your wrist out after a while you will get a very sore wrist by
    putting your thumb onto the top of the neck straightens you wrist but also
    allows you to apply the pressure on the strings while still being relaxed
    love your lessons after many years of enjoying the guitar you have better
    explained the fundamentals to me than anyone else many thanks

  • neera maha 2 years ago

    It is really a great teaching …you are looking at problems from the
    students angle. I am at the very beginner level. I was terribly practicing
    my fingers for the last 3 days.. mmh.. no improvement . tried sitting on
    different seats…mmhm .. nothing worked out… with lots of frustration
    turned on my pc and accidently found yours and I am so happy and thank
    you very much. with a boost going to grasp my guitar to practice the way
    you taught. Not only your teaching also the way you encourage students is
    remarkable… by the way my fingers are pretty small. I am wondering which
    one is the better guitar for me a Yamaha 500iii or EL 00 -PRO?
