  1. Great lesson. Thansk. If you have the time. Could you make A lesson White Indigo Girl – Watershed played like Mighty Marc acoustic cover

  2. Really amazing what you do with just a handful of chords. Thanks for sharing. Oh, keep up the good work. I see you use a clip-on tuner, can you comment on the method you use to tune the guitar.Thanks in advance.

    Was just watching the Elton John: I'm Still Standing- A Grammy Salute and noticed Eddie Boy is playing a NEW Divided guitar and it Was Not a Martin. I couldn't get a good look at the name on the headstock, anyone know what brand it is?

    Thanks again for a great tutorial. The best songs often need just a few simple chords to make a mega selling classical tune (e.g. Lady in Black). Perfect is a good song to practice simple or advanced fingerpicking techniques. As a picking Newbie I found a pattern for myself that is bass note/e/b/g/e/b/g/e (leaving pinkie and ring finger at their place all the time through all chords). But I guess there are several picking patterns that fit fine. Again thanks Justin for being a such inspiring and motivating guitar teacher over years!

  16. Excellent lesson but you lost me completely when you started the plectrum picking part Ahhhhhhhh

  17. Could you please please please teach slash and Myles Kennedy song not for me in chord of d# I’m struggling a little bit with a few chords
