    You are the best Justin.. I started learning from your YouTube BC lessons sometime back and I'm really becoming good😊
    Thanks for your free lessons, I don't have money now but I've promised myself to pay you something for sure in coming time. 😊 just a token of love bro.

  7. Hi Justin I hope this isn't a redundant question but do you have any suggestions on buying my first beginning guitar? I am a petite girl and I have heard there are different neck widths. And would like a more narrow neck so my fingers reach better. And I want to spend no more than $300 on my first guitar. can you steer me towards some suggestions? And whether or not I should do steel string or synthetic string or whatever you might call what the strings are made out of. Would really appreciate some guidance on this. Thank you so much!

  8. do u offer a tab song book?

    Hi Justin! The fact that younger people learn to play instruments faster than older people is due to different BRAIN PLASTICITY. Brains of young people are still developing and new neural connections are made and connections not being used are pruned, hence it is easier to establish new neuronal connections, which are associated with playing an instrument. A human brain is fully developed at around 30 years of age, therefore if you start learning when you're an adult (like me), it'll be much more difficult. Also, neurons have projections called axons, which are insulated with a protein called myelin. The more myelin the better and faster neurons communicate with each other. People who started playing young have more myelin and have better 'muscle memory'* because of that. *such thing doesn't exist really, muscles don't have memory 🙂

  10. i was bored one day and picked up a guitar, found your youtube channel and started learning. You are fantastic!! I now have my very own guitar and continue to learn and grow through your vids. so THANK YOUUU.
