Video Rating: 4 / 5

In this second fart of the guitar lesson we check out the strumming and chords for the verses – the chorus is much like the riff in the intro – so you should have watched part 1 first. AT the end I show you the solo that we learn next lesson (cos I couldn’t fit it into the 10mins for the next lesson!) Fart 3 will cover the solo and will probably be silent but deadly.

  1. im piss at you so bad case´╗┐ you have such a nice voice and you pick that guitar real good so piss that im subscribe to you lol love it very pro and good job

  2. Thanks. I enjoyed your rendition. Sounds more like the original to me than others on youtube. I have´╗┐ it down but not as good as you do it.

  3. Its like an E minor but the barred finger is acting as the nut on the second fret.´╗┐ So basically by string and fret it’s Low E 2nd, A 4th, D 4th G 2nd, B 2nd, and hight E 2nd. If you cant make the bar at least get the E A and D strings down… that will sound pretty good.

  4. I don’t know what an F sharp minor looks like. I can only guess from the video. I know your barring the second fret and putting your ring finger on the fourth fret on the A string but I can’t tell where the other finger is. I played it and it sounds alright to me without the other finger. I just barred the 2nd fret and put my ring finger´╗┐ on the 4th fret on the A string.

  5. Can you tell me what you do after you play the “D” chord when you sing “Fanny”? You play a few notes, lift up your index finger and then go into the A chord but I can’t really follow´╗┐ it. Thanks so much for putting this on youtube. Great job!

  6. Of course he’s´╗┐ the only guy who plays it correctly and the damn video keeps freezing

  7. WOW! I can almost play´╗┐ this. I am missing half of my index finger and have been looking for a way to play this. I thank you. Very well done.

  8. dude u have´╗┐ a awsome voice..and it didnt take but about an hour to learn how to play. so keep it up and make some more vids ­čśë

  9. Thanks so much. You’re a great teacher. I will be´╗┐ subscribing to your channel. Cheers!

  10. @taguitarface nope its called the weight.
    ive heard lots of versons of this song…
    each time its called the weight´╗┐

  11. a lot of notes missing, and significant amount of string´╗┐ buzzing, guitar needs work or your technique needs work

  12. Wtf is that chord at 2:32?! It would really´╗┐ help if you showed the chords up close, it only takes a couple of seconds

  13. It’s basically a 3 note power chord sliding from C to D. It’s a quicker/easier way to do it (if´╗┐ you have the pinky strength). He reinforces his pinky with his other finger(s) ’cause he has a mutant teeny pinkie, and yet can play circles around every one of us. ­čśë

  14. @1:02 ´╗┐ some1 who could tell me how to do that chord? cant seem to understand how he does it :/

  15. Just look at how he plays, if he’s too quick stop and pause the video and break it down further than he’s already broken it down. I’m a beginner and I found this song to be pretty easy, just listen to the notes he plays if you’re unsure of what´╗┐ fret he’s holding on and you’ll get it.

  16. “Fart 3 will´╗┐ cover the solo and will probably be silent but deadly. ” Hahahahaha, ahh. Anyway thanks so much for the lesson, I’m starting to feel like a pro now! (Even though I’m way off.)

  17. if you guys agree´╗┐ that this Guy here is the best Guitar Teacher in the whole web ……then push the (like) button

  18. this instructor right´╗┐ here is good….it shouldnt take more thn 20 minutes to get it right with clear instructions like this and excellent camera quality….Gracias mi amigo

  19. Your point is spot on,´╗┐ except for the incorrect spelling of geniuses. The irony… ­čśë
    And now, onward to fart 3.

  20. watch part one first, all you´╗┐ genius’s who think he’s moving too fast on the chords. It’s really easy with a bit of practice
