  24. guitarneverdies99 says:

    the three people who pressed dislike obviously have no sense of AWESOME! marty you rock!

  25. Rags228 says:

    Sweet video. Thanks for the lesson

  26. jankrohn says:

    if this ain’t a hell of a lesson,
    by no means let me into heaven

  27. didgeboy287 says:

    I reckon what’s helping me progress in this lesson is to retract where the 4ths and 5ths are from whatever position. If I’m in the D7 position for the F7 chord and I want to go to the 4th (Bb7) then I know I can jump to the nearby G7 position. Granted, you may not always want to make that transition, but it seems like a excellent start.

  28. absurdplanet says:

    Nice review for me–excellent to do it in F7–keeps us on our toes!

  29. Makksor says:

    You kinda look like Brian Eno! Fantastic lesson btw :)

  30. 7279616E says:

  31. Recovery82 says:

  36. krisenbirgit says:

    Where can we find the backing track? I can’t find it on your website… Thanks for a fantastic lesson…

  37. TheDoobiesnatcher says:

    brilliant I have always loved 7th chords but by no means really known how to place them together.

  38. bartyblues says:

    the lesson BL-205 does not open on your website…

  39. TheKillerFabivs says:

    Always the best

  40. Hakan625 says:

    Sometimes when I’m not into a style that you are teaching in a video, I just watch the entire video anyway just to delight in the sight of your incredible teaching.

  41. LosLurvos says:

    The best teacher on the net. Now sponsored by Dutch gamers :)

  42. stringmanipulator says:

    fantastic lesson as always !!! thanks Justin

  43. absurdplanet says:

    Very nice–for me, just a review; but, loved the shuffle chords at the end.
    How soon we forget!
    Excellent job as always…

  44. YusseX says:

    Bro, I’m a guitar player for like more than 10 years, I’m 20 years ancient, and a lot of things that I’ve already known, I’ve seen them teached by you, and you do it soooooooooo excellent! I’m lucky enough that 2 of my brothers helped me and teached me a lot of really basic stuff when I was a small kid, and I know you’re fantastic ‘produce you’re somewhat like they are: just a VERY PATIENT, RELAXED, NICE GUY. :)

    Just THANK YOU, for wanting to help so many people in such a kind way full of like. U r gr8!!! :)

  45. xamtheone says:

    Monster lesson! THIS is what every guitarist should learn.

  46. 1robjohnson says:

    Awesome lesson Justin – thanks a million for sharing all these tips

  47. RAMBOvGnR says:

    @sologuitarman5000 Im sure he said he was from Tasmania

  48. masterofscotland says:

    Is it just me or do the first three chords sound like that songbmy Steppenwolf the pusher? If you slightly alter the 3rd one? You’ll know what I mean Justin but it could be a cool song/lesson to go by the side of with these chords.

    @Dennizzz119 He lives in England but is Australian.
