Thanks, Brian, for another beautiful melody. I modified it a tiny bit here and there to suit my mood. You asked for a video so here it is. Took me days to fiddle around with all the technical aspects so it’s as good as I could get. I’m trying to be a guitarist, not a sound engineer, as much as I would love to do that as well.

Very well played, Jonathan. You don’t need to worry about the sound engineering aspect, since that sounded very well engineered to me. And a nice little bit of improv thrown in as well. You made it look very easy.

You played that extremely well Jonathan. It’s all about playing what comes from the heart and you did it well. Sounds great too!

It seems that this lesson fits best for the white stratocasters 🙂
Very nice, Jonathan!

Your Strat tone was right in the pocket and love that white Strat. Some great playing right there.

Nicely done Jonathan, good choice of tone with the strat….

Played very well, Jonathan. Nice and smooth, awesome tone, too. From a sound viewpoint, I’d say you got it spot on. Funny how our own ears will trick us into thinking it isn’t quite there, yet anyone who listens to it would think that it is perfect. Whatever you did, it sounded pretty darn good to me.

Very nice, Jonathan, I like the ideas you incorporated there, it sounded flawless and gave it a slightly different feel. Wish you played on a bit more…

Very nice Jonathan! Inspires me to explore the ‘in between’ pickup position, which I tend to neglect.

So your sound is great. Yes, here is a reminder of The Shadows. You play like Hank Marvin. I liked it very much. By the way, the sound is always a matter of taste; even if we are not sound engineers. Thumbs up.

No need to be a sound-eng. to have a good sound as your showed here. Your lesson is flawless and you looks really confident playing it.

Really good job. Tone was great, timing was on and your improv parts were well done.

Excellent submission Jonathan. Keep posting.

Loved your version of this and the tone from the strat. Nice work!

Nice job Jonathan – that was fun to listen to. You played that beautifully and I loved hearing your take on it. Thank you for sharing. Love the look of that old Strat.

Jonathan, that was fantastic! So smoothly played. And both the audio and video quality were top notch. Well done!
