  33. duncan duffy says:

    Is that carter picking you are doing on this song

  34. duncan duffy says:

    Hi for3. I struggle with the chords getting clean clear sound and was wondering if I could for now, . leave the top E string open as it does not get used anyway. And I think you are the best tutor I have come across, as you explain everything in great detail and take your time to explain why. You also explain in detail what the right hand does very clearly. Thank you so much. Duncan

  35. Zephry Warframe says:

    This is so hard. My wrist hurts, my notes don’t sound write, I’m getting so frustrated that I can’t do it. I feel like I can’t play guitar
