    Very nice, one thing though, your timing is slightly off on some notes.

    Good but the name of the song is knocking ON heavens door

  • Reply JackDaniels10101 October 13, 2012 at 6:41 am

    Hey Bobby, I love your lessons, but I have one gripe… you should use a metronome, or a drum track when you play your demo. You'll find that the timing is important. It could be nerves in front of the camera, but the timing is important. Thanks for your work though, I always enjoy it.

    I always love the way you make Tutorial. Is there any tutorial on "I'm Gonna Crawl" by Led Zeppelin, Bob?

  • Reply Tom Sawyer October 21, 2012 at 6:51 am

    Hey man I hadn't picked up a guitar in awhile and listened to the first half of Shine on You Crazy Diamond and I just had to play — was already subbed to you and naturally you already had a video on the intro solo, looked around found this; thanks for getting me back into guitar:)

    Does he have to do everything for you? How about just getting the timing right on your own???

    BobbyCrispy you are awesome. I'm a recent subscriber, and I'm one thats staying FOR SURE. One thing I love about your vids is that you get straight to the point with the playing, and don't sit there and feed us with unnecessary bullshit. Only things that matter. Thank you for contributing. For a long time I didn't know where to start with metal and fast playing, but after one day on your videos my skill has already improved tremendously. THANK YOU!

    Bobby, I just retired early from the military and after three years of deployment and medical treatment I'm finally home for good. I picked up a couple used guitars to learn my new hobby. I can't thank you enough for your tutorials. I hope to save for a Gibson SG and learn what pedals do but for now I'm truly blessed to have what I got. Rock on…
