    What's the name of the last chord?

  • Reply Ei’ríġ Proinsias Dammantaċ Ó Gamhna. July 6, 2014 at 8:40 am

    This helped me a lot.  Sorry for this, but is there any chance you may name the notes you play in your videos or how they relate to the key you're in (or what key you're in, for that matter)?  I'm not a guitarist, but I love writing for the guitar, so though your video was lovely, I imagine it'd be some help to people like me (obviously the minority) as well as guitarists to have that information.  I've worked it out and put it to good use by now.  Just thought I'd offer the suggestion.

    Please fix your TABS I try and watch your videos but your tabs are always messed up

  • Reply Kapil Tejwani August 11, 2014 at 4:25 am

    the second one sounds a little different version of Eric Clapton's Before you accuse me intro.
    Proper term for these would be turn arounds not riffs.
    good lesson though. 

  • Reply Ricky Mallard August 22, 2014 at 8:29 pm

    How do you play the open E string with the other two strings without hitting the A and D strings with the pick??

  • Reply NoName Jane August 28, 2014 at 7:29 am

    You call the same string the "top" string and a couple of minutes later you call it the "bottom" string.  This seems mighty dumb to me.  Not showing your face — even for a second or two — is also mighty dumb.

    I learned to play first and foremost by listening to those on the porch, in the kitchen, or around the campfire. Yeah,…I watched their fingers….but it was what I heard that I kept in my head,…and would just keep trying until I could repeat what I had heard and burned into my mind. Never learned to read or understand all the….what do they call them.. tabs….?? I seldom asked someone to slow down and show me….but yeah a few times I did. Great post….but it just isn't the way I learn. I did far better with just an old record player! But thanks….but sincerely. would just love to sit and listen to you play! I also found that going out into life and living the blues helped a bit too! 😉
