I’ve tried many times to pick up the guitar and you have finally made me stick with it!!!
Great site. Keep the songs coming. Anyway to send out a notification when you post more songs?
One suggestion…. I really enjoy strumming along with you and would like to do the whole song. Any way to have you play the song in its entirety at the end if the video without any breaks in between??
Keep the pop tunes coming. They’re all so catchy.
Thanks again

After 6 months trawling through websites, youtube etc. I finally come across a site that makes it very easy for a beginner dummy like myself. Just wished I had found this site earlier.
Good popular current songs too a bonus. Keep up the good work and the tutorials coming.
Very much appreciated.
