I’ll say my best revelation was finding and signing up on ActiveMelody. I alway have a place to find great instruction. After that it was the surprise that I was actually improving.

Excellent playing… It has a feeling of Eric Clapton’s Key to the Highway!

Yes you are improving. Love what you did with this. Nice touch you added.

Well done for composing your own bit after doing Brian’s ML. Nice idea.
Be kind to yourself (especially when you're trying to play this instrument!)

Okay very cool nice sound!

Definitely agree with you Mike about discovering Active Melody, it’s been a revelation for all of us. Also enjoyed your acoustic stand alone, sounded great. Keep on pickin’. All the best!

Love hearing about people’s AM journey’s its the gift that just keeps giving

Great job, Dave. Great picking and great, warm tone. I enjoyed listening.

Nicely done Dave. I think everyone here has the same revelation when hooking up with AM. Brian does have a unique way of teaching and it works. The forum is the perfect example of that.👍

Great submission Dave. Composing your own bolt-ons opens up a whole new world. Keep them coming.

Dave, I think that you’ve started a rush of people heading towards Microlesson 28 after that performance. Great job.
August 1, 2021 at 1:22 pm #264857James BParticipant
Your right, those stand alone lessons are perfect for most of us playing at home just for the pleasure of making music. Your guitar sounds great.
August 1, 2021 at 1:33 pm #264864AndréMParticipant
You played it very well
Great tone with that axe.

Hi Dave , I was also drawn to that lesson , love the stand alone stuff , your added improv fits perfectly in this style. Well played .

Hi Dave, I love country blues, so I run to check ML028, awesome lesson. Very well played Dave. Thanks for sharing.
August 1, 2021 at 5:53 pm #264990sunjamrParticipant
Excellent story about the start of your AM journey. Really well played example, and made all the more enjoyable by the great tone of your acoustic.

Great ML Dave you choose and you played it very well. Stand alone playing is so much fun! Great job! Bob

Thanks for sharing your insights — they’re very powerful. Your video demonstration is also well done.
August 2, 2021 at 9:44 am #265246JFLParticipant
Right on Dave. I feel the same. 1 year of AM did more for me that the 20 I spent randomly noodling before I joined. Nice playing man.
August 2, 2021 at 11:05 am #265267Michael LParticipant
Hey Dave, isn’t it great when you realize you are able to put your own ideas into a piece? Nice picking!

Great job Dave! AND I love the tone from your sweet little guitar!!

Great showcase, nicely played, Dave!
I think we would all agree that the biggest breakthrough for us was joining the AM! It is interesting how many of us were just drifting aimlessly BB (Before Brian, a term I just stole from Tim B) 😉
Thanks for reminding us of the Microlessons! Yes, they are all so cool and so rewarding to learn, a whole section of little gems out there.
August 2, 2021 at 8:26 pm #265400BrianKeymaster
That was cool Dave. Nice that you’re able to add to that microlesson like that. Sounded great.
August 6, 2021 at 2:17 pm #265970Phil67Participant
You got a damned good blues sound on it!

Hey Dave, that was really well played and the sound from your acoustic was really warm. Cheers. Pap
