  1. @R0ckinRhett Agreed, VERY VERY good beginner guitar teacher, most people don't have the patience and they don't take the time to teach step by step.

  2. Bobby, I fall somewhere between Beginner and intermediate guitar player. What do you think I should work on as far as practicing?

  3. Your tabs were a little confusing, because it looks a bit jumbled because of the annotations. i get it now by looking at it but its kinda unappealing to the eye. So if you can, tidy it up =]

  4. @FuzzyMcButterWink practise scales dude. they can get boring as fuck but trust me, they really do help whatever level you're at. your fingers become so much more agile and coordinated. i know you asked bobby but yeah… it's what worked for me, could work for you 🙂

  5. the annotations go wrong because you go fullscreen……if you try the normal mode you will be fine 🙂

  6. bobby!!!! I signed into youtube this morning and saw a video posted from my fav subscriber!!! Does this mean your back? More epic guitar vids?

  7. This is an 80s song, from an other band, I think they cover this one, or maybe is just plagiarism. Nice lessons man. Thank you.

  8. Outstanding! Thank you so much for your efforts. I signed up just to leave you this mesage because I really appreaciate your doing this for others. I have never left a message on Youtube before.

  9. @clintw490 its because some can be on powerchords or remember from the 12 tab to the bothom it sound the same but more nice well some thing like that

  10. thanks so much, always wanted to learn this on the guitar, at least you actually explain it so much better, like some people just throw their fingers all over the guitar and don't say anything…

  11. thanks! this really helps! But I find the first bit easier if I put all my fingers in the right places like the middle finger on the high e string, the index finger on the b string and the ring finger on the g string for example and just strum upwards. I find this way much easier

  12. I was having trouble counting the rhythm accents using  the old  'one and two and three and'….Your way seems much easier, thanks.

  13. Hey Booby C, I have a question if you don't mind. What time signature is 1,2,3 1,2,3 1,2? I don't understand how you would program a metronome to fit the feel; it has a 3/4 feel (almost) and a 4/4 time signature. Am I missing something? Also, you have great discipline for the rhythm/picking technique, although do I thing down strokes with the pick gives it more energy and feel. I know this is subjective. Great video, thanks!

  14. Best guitar lesson ive ever seen! The riffs sound incredible…would love to hear you play the whole song through without stopping. Thanks for the video!

  15. Appalling. NFI how to explain let alone teach. Holy Shit Batman another example of Exceptional USA. Like the daily gun massacres.
