Great lesson. Thanks to your teaching I am slowly becoming a musician.
Although I must admit I am experiencing a case of guitar envy. Your guitars are very cool.

Theodore J says
Charles S says
A beauty for sure! More?

Jazzy sounds, enjoy !!!!
Daniel H says
Great ideas packed into a short practice piece. Another great lesson. Thanks Brian!
Jim M says
Way to break down these important jazz concepts in an understandable simple manner Brian.
This is a great primer lesson before tackling EP 371 which gives even more turnaround and lead options for a jazz blues.
Charles S says
This song has a vibe that lowers blood pressure by 10 points. Ahhh!
Interesting ideas expressed clearly in an easily accessible format. Brian’s trademark approach!
Raymond P says
Great lesson Brian,
Although I have to admit I did miss the tab screens you’ve been posting lately. They tab screens make it a lot easier to follow you as you explain the lesson. But this still was a great lesson.
Tom M says
Every week is a wonderful new riff and lesson. Not sure where you find the deep creativity mine to pull it from but I hope it never runs dry. I really find that just working these week to week is fun and improves my skill without it feeling like practice.
Appreciate your lessons Brian – thanks!
One Take Toni says
and because you rarely mention your motto, I will do here:
learn to play, not memorize.
Denny B. says
I’m hearing Jailhouse Rock too when you slide into a major chord
Randy G says
Building on stuff you taught us previously with interesting new material, technique and theory. It’s like having my own private class each wk that keeps challenging me and keeps track of my progress. Really benefitting from your lessons. Thank you!!
Roy w says
Do you have backing tracks for the songs ?
any lesson that has a full band or backing track includes that backing track in multiple formats. This lesson was a standalone composition, so no backing track is included
KEVIN F says
Nice lesson. Really would like to see more like this. Love the blues jazz flavored lessons particularly more upbeat ones.

Nice lesson and plenty to learn even if you don’t pick up the guitar. Just listening pays off too.

Plenty to learn (here) even if you don’t pick up the guitar. Just listening pays off too.
Really enjoyed this Brian. It’s all stuff I know, but presented in such a way to make the pieces click together.
Daniel S says
Thank you, can’t wait to get into this one. i think this will help me take that next step in my abilities
Nick Ll says
Great lessons every time Brian.
Just noticed one slip about 4 minutes in where you say the 3 chord is C sharp minor, but surely it is F sharp minor?
Anthony R says
Hi Brian, I’ve never thought to ask what guitar are you playing? Love to see a list of all your guitars somewhere on the site too?
Jacob P says
