  1. A BIg, BIG THANKS, Justin for this lesson. I think it’s your best lesson. I mean they’re all good, but this one is OUTSTANDING! You´╗┐ really did an awesome job of breaking it down and showing all the different parts. BTW, can you do some more funk lessons? I think funk is great for really learning how to strum the guitar. At least for me it has been. Thanks again. You are GREAT!

  2. Justin, apart from´╗┐ the start where you seem to pick the string do you strum all the way
    through? I can’t seem to strum it through the melody line in there and end up picking the notes . I suppose I need to ensure the muting is accurate so that I can strum and just play the
    specific note(s) at the time. V Hard to do and you make it look easy, but I’m determined to learn this one. cheers

  3. Justin, someone should give you an award!´╗┐ This patience and dedication you have deserves all the respect from the others. Very well done!

  4. Man,´╗┐ that was one great fuggin’ gig. So much energy from the word go. I was dancing me arse off behind the mixing desk. Good Times.
