  1. good lesson. i like the idea for the blues playing. ive been looking for something to add some new flavour to my blues playing rather than just the standard blues/rock licks.

  2. Pretty Cool lesson here, Covers the topic quite well. Ive just made a bunch of detailed courses for beginners and advanced guitarists that you might be interested in. Check it out! would love to know what you and anyone watching this video thinks. Its totally free, and i mean TOTALLY

  3. thank you so much! Im half-way thru your video and so far its been a HUGE help in CLARIFYING things !

  4. @JustinSandercoe Hey Hi need to know if i want to play lead with what i should start as i am complete beginner can u give me relevent links to start up with lead guitar,Thanks – Sagar

  5. aaaaah….justin is such an amazing guitarist, every time he starts playing his examples i just drift away..

  6. Recently fell out of love with my guitar… because I became restricted, I started writing songs and loved what I had done. But I continued writing and I felt like I was just repeating myself, Didn’t wanna become Status Quo lol

    So, thanks, Justin. I stopped watching your videos regularly 2 years ago. Remained subscribed, of course. But have comeback to learn more, I find myself picking up these things very quickly =) which has only inspired me further. thanks mate.
    will make donation!

  7. Hi, Justin. An instrument question: what are the pickups that you are using in that Tele? They sound very clear and, at the same time, fat… Tks.

  8. ”Then the 3rd fret on the G string which is the note G again”

    I actually meant the 3rd fret on high E string, Sorry.

  9. @odgeUK What he means is, in the key of G major, If we had a chord progression of G Major, C Major and E minor (All of these chords are in the key of G major) We could just use a G major scale and it’d sound wonderful, But what if we added a B7? the point is, its delibiratley not in key, and it’s not supposed to be, but what if we did? A G major scale wouldn’t sound very nice over the B7, So we switch from a G major scale, to a B7 Arpeggio over the B7 chord, then back to G major for the other3(:

  10. @ickayR Now, (If you can) Play a G major Barre chord at the 3rd fret, Notice anything? You’re playing all the notes you just picked out, but as a Chord. It’s an easy way to remember it, If I wasn’t clear, Please message me or add me on msn at your request, and i’ll explain as best as I can 🙂

  11. @ickayR After the D (The fifth, A string 5th fret) Next we go back to the root note on the D string (5th fret D string), which would be the fifth fret, then go to the 4th fret on the G string, the note B (Major 3rd) then the 3rd fret on the B string which is the note D (the fifth) then the 3rd fret on the G string which is the note G again ( the root) So you’re only playing the notes G,B and D from a G major scale, These are the Chord tones of a G major Chord (Sorry for repeating myself)

  12. @ickayR
    An Arpeggio is like a broken down Scale, Lets Take an open G major Chord, and a G major Scale.
    The notes in a G major Chord are G (the root), B (The Major third) and D ( the fifth) these 3 notes, G B and D make up a G Major Chord. Now, Take a G Major scale, but ONLY play the notes G, B and D, You’re only playing the chord tones of the G major chord, So start your root on the note G (3rd fret Low E) and count up 3 notes to the B (major 3rd) and up another 2, to D (the fifth)

  13. The independent trumpet and guitar playing in unison is just too good to be true, I can’t stress how tight and perfect that is.

  14. Raul is unbelievable! I have had the chance to see him twice in concert in Toronto and if he is ever in your area, I highly recommend you go. His albums are wonderful and watching him on youtube is great, but there is nothing like watching him play live. Sheer brilliance!
