just to let you know your you tube videos are the most informative out there [DON T change anything in the future] its good to know there are still people out there willing to help others and share there talent keep up the good work kind regards vince
Cheers Vince, I appreciate your support; I don’t intend to change a thing 🙂
thank you so much for your lessons they are simply great….no fluff, straight to the “chords” 🙂
Why dont you compile a cd with all the lessons and with pdf tab for each song?
All the best and thanks again for your time and work
Your idea is a good one but I do not own the rights for any of the songs I use so I would be breaking copyright laws if I compiled them on CD or DVD.
Thank you for your support.
Well done kiddo….. I’m learning a lot from you… What did we do before u tube eh?…. Keep going….
I have a question about the strumming for this song… when you get near the end of the strum pattern theres a Ch-Ch kind of sound, and I can’t figure out how to make it! Do you press the strings down to shorten the sound? Please help! Thanks so much! 🙂
Hi Tracy, and thanks for your kind words.
The technique is called palm muting:
You have to place? your hand across all the strings on a down strum a fraction? of a second before the pick hits. Its all about timing and finding the best position for your hand to make contact. It took me a few days of practice (on and off in bursts of about 10 minutes? 3 or 4 times a day) but It was worth it – I hope this helps 🙂
Hi Alan..came across your videos last night on youtube. very cool…straight forward, easy to learn! Thanks. question..is there any way to copy and paste the sheet music to print out? Thanks
The songsheets are image files of Microsoft Word files I created to teach myself the songs. I use this method because laying out text in HTML is a real pain. If you let me know what you want I will email you the word file as an attachment for you to print out.
Best wishes – Alan 🙂
Hi, thsnk you so much for your videos. Very helpful. A Horse with no Name is my first song that I am practicing at my acoustic guitar lessons. Truly enjoy your version and I’m going to try it this evening.
If I may say your voice is incredible and love your guitar playing.
Thank you Gigi, I appreciate your kind comment 🙂
