    What is the g chord you are playing? I can’t figure it out by looking at your hand. Is there a tab for that chord some where?

    hey thx soo much great lesson. Ive been playing guitar for years, mostly by ear and picking up watching better players. I always loved this song, but played it wrong. awesome teaching and choice of songs, Im sure your students enjoy learning cool songs, the classics you cant go wrong with, kids today want to learn these cause they are just fun.

    He’s not teaching lyrics. This guy teaches GUITAR well-best I’ve seen so far. See it for what it is and eat a good breakfast and maybe you won’t be such a downer.
