Hi Dan,

your lessons help me to re-learn the basics. 

I like the stuff the gets me beyond strumming along to the song (bass runs, arpeggios, etc)

At the moment I lack time practicing!

Therefore I find the practice loops of the whole song at the end of the lessons extremly useful. helps to play along and learn on the go.

hey there richard!

that's really good to hear and i think you're not alone. i feel like there's a lot here now for real beginners and i'm going to shift my focus to the intermediate stuff you're talking about. that's really where the music came alive for me.

i had a friend who would set a timer for 9 minutes a few times a day and stop everything and practive for that amount of time. a short time but it adds up to meaningful practice and i don't know about you but i can waste nine minutes doing really ridiculous stuff and practicing doesn't fall into that category!! in other words, if i keep the practice goals realistic and consistant i can really get a lot going on!!

i'm glad you like the too!!

yr pal,

i can see why he was into doing this song, he sounds pretty great singing it! (i could have gone for more guitar subtlties but that's just me...)

hi dan,

great song - glad to know this marvel now .
I appreciate your lectures very much.
Myself  dabbling around with guitar and uke for quite some time now, I learn and re-learn each lesson a lot.

And of course am trying to find my voice ;-)

cheers richard

one small suggestion - it would be great if the lyrics could added somewhere, too - perhaps thats possible.

hello richard!

thank you for your comments, it's great to hear from you!

i'm glad that these lessons are working for you and especially that you're finding your voice. it take s a little time (at least it did for me!) but the pay off is so huge. just to get comfortable with singing and playing means a life time of pleasure and fun with friends and neighbors.

the lyrics are there with the music but i think you're suggesting that there's a way to display them separately too. great idea! i'll pass that along....

thanks for reaching out and stay tuned for more!

yr pal, dan
