You say in a previous post that we can get very creative with the exercises; That’s definitely John. That’s what the music ultimately does. Some ideas, combine something from what we have learned and try it out. Something good always comes out there. And if it’s just practicing. Sometimes we have many ideas but no time to do it. But it’s better to have plenty of time, but no ideas … LOL. Your guitar has a beautiful sound. Good start to the day my friend.

oh very nice. Got a real Neil Young vibe with some Bert Jansch. Really lovely stuff.

Love the sound of the open strings in those chords. That guitar comes through with a very warm, full sound even on a phone recording. Was that drop d or double drop d, John?

I really enjoyed this sound. I didnt associate this with “country blues” and was surprised when I looked up the lesson. I will learn this next. Thankyou for triggering a new quest…..you played it wonderfully, and bryan…wow.

Glad to share Mattc, yes Brian I would imagine wants us to share our progress,, Charjo John , just the one low E drop to D , this Martin is awesome and these are the recommended silk wounds recommended on the Martin site.. Brian’s short lessons are full of classic licks , takeaways from famous artists but we all find our own creative ideas to add from our own favorite Artists and Albums in our own time. revisiting EP131 , I actually heard in my own a kind of LINDSEY Buckingham more than Neil Young.. but I guess only because I listened to these Artists influentially over the years.
This Lindsey Buckingham is good example of a creative artist

That was a really fine piece to share John, to my ears, it had a definite ‘contemporary folk-blues’ flavour to it which is a great favourite music genre of mine. Your version sound slightly slower and more deliberate than the original which I thought improved the piece ….thanks.

that was nice and relaxing

Beautiful stuff, John. That Martin sounds so good.
September 4, 2019 at 2:55 pm #142544
Great start to the day John…sounds great!

That’s a great lesson to mess around with, Sunburst John. Right now I’m binging on my Boss RC-300 loop station, and I can see how that could be built into an interesting loop song.

John. I have started this lesson and and am now even more hooked, which made me revisit your version etc….I think you do fantastic work. If I was bryan I would be very proud. Please consider tabbing this for me….as young kids say “ill be your best friend…”

Really liked that have listened to it about five times now as Matt says above tab would be nice or even some chord diagrams.

Very cool, John! Sounds really similar with “The Chain” tune.
September 13, 2019 at 8:49 pm #144354
Nice playing very relaxing.

Thanks this is easy stuff I made up over ep 131 practice experimenting and finding just dropping the low E string to D from simple chord progression some fill lick alternating ideas ,, easy to find using basic guitar theory like the CAGED system know how to find octaves and other basic theory explained here in basically any lesson at active melody. simple fill licks between a basic chord progression nice slow and easy to make my own composition.
