  1. Justin my friend you are one amazing Guitar teacher. I've started learning at a local music shop 25 years old. I started with lessons for a few years can't afford them. I came to your channel and I'm learning how to use chords. I wish I had money to donate maybe. Some day when I get a full time job I will give you some money. I'm 32 years old now trying to learn the guitar still. I hope I an progress using your methods. I hope I'm not the only adult learning to use the guitar. From Daniel Mauro. Thank you so much for your time effort teaching Me and other people the guitar. 🙂

  2. Did nice sing along

    Is there any chance you could do a tutorial on the song Mississippi Sand? Here's a link to the song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zw3rVns6mFQ

    That second Strumming pattern is impossible to slow down without losing all sense of what it's supposed to sound like.

  5. Because you're E I walk the A. Absolutely beautiful 😢

  6. hey, i'm not fast enough to get the boom chaka strummin-pattern done, is there a way to train this, or any trick, is a pick needed, or is it possible to do it just with hands? it seems like i cant put the thumb in the right position for the upstroke fast enough :/

  7. Creepypasta master

    Thank you so much for your time Justin

  8. Strumming patterns are hard to make consistent. I got Justin's CD's and have ripped them to my Ipod, I use Headset in conjunction with metronome when practising. It is very easy to think you are keeping in sync, however using the metronome teaches you to listen and pay attention to rhythm especially strumming action. Practice is very important. Thanks to Justin, these song vid's make sure you are playing your chords correctly.

  31. Roger O'Rielly

    Really love your instruction Justin! My wife gave me a guitar for Christmas and I've been practicing with you since then. My fingers hurt, but they're starting to toughen up and I've learned the A, D, and E chords with anchoring. It's only been two weeks so I'm trying not to be too hard on myself 🙂 I'm finding I have to look in the mirror to make sure I hit the right finger placement. Any way to remove this "crutch"? Should I just stop looking in the mirror and try to feel for the finger placement?

  32. you are a lord

  33. moistpapertowel

    Wheres the card?

  34. What guitar is that he's playing ? looks lovely and sounds even better.

  35. SomethingCool51

    so wait, when you're doing the bass chug thing and are holding the E chord, do you only hit the low e and A string for the base part, or do you play the full chord as well, after hitting the e string alone?

  36. Em? i'm playing with the E7 🙂

  37. Merci.

  38. great

  39. Great singing Justin!

  40. Tristan Clendenin
