Great lesson Brian. I have really enjoyed your drop D lessons!
great stuff , i am not a natural and i find it hard work this stuff ties me up knots but i have strong determination and perseverance along with repetitive practice . As the great M.Knopfler once said “you gota want to do it play guitar ” and i want it bad . I may pick the guitar up as many as 20 times a day i have one in every room sometimes i even stay up for an all nighter whenever i get agitated i have a rest and then go back . Cannot believe the progress i have made in a couple of hours total on this piece .

i love these lessons Brian, tough to learn but once it’s in your fingers it is so satisfying .
I enjoy doodling in Drop D. This lesson is great for building as base and extending out from there. Thanks again for all the great ideas your have has give me over the years.

Thanks great fun
I like the lesson but found the tab print out was confusing to what Brian was playing however the tab on soundslice was different and I used screenshots of that glad I stuck with it as it had a nice groove.
Oops above comment was meant for lesson EP 190
Love it! But that barre with the pinky on the A chord is hard!
then use your ring finger.
