    Getting there πŸ™‚ With practise.
    The last little riff Go, G3bend, Bo,B3,E3 I think sounds better if you just flick the last two strings together, mini strum πŸ™‚

    Have you been having singing lessons? You’re making me think I could learn myself. Huge improvement!

  3. thisismusic says:

    i don’t think he’s looking for your approval of his singing. he is a guitar teacher, a good one at that.

  4. Sub Prime says:

    @ThisIsMusic1985 – well aware thanks. Few have taught me more about playing guitar and I wouldn’t care if he spoke the words. It was merely a deserved compliment. Compare his voice on earlier vids.

    Yes, well, I’m ancient and could soon be in that urn on the mantelpiece but Justin is so encouraging and makes me feel I CAN DO THAT TOO.Β  Course I can’t but it’s a great feeling and he is one good teacher.

    This is such a treat thank you so much for sharing…

  19. Hell Yeah! says:

    I wondered why I was struggling with the intro, I was sliding from Fret 1/2 on the 2nd/3rd string to 5th frets. I will be practicing this later.
