    Thanks, Ryan! It’s one recording. In all my videos there isn’t a single sound you don’t see played :) The effect in this one is a reverb effect native to Logic Pro 9 called Empty Church.

    Brilliant lesson Brian……looking forward to more of your stuff….!!

  30. getkristan says:

    If he’s been playing his whole life and still cant “impress” any non-guitar players, then I don’t reckon it’s the picking style that should be blamed.

  31. grunntalll says:

    you wanna learn to fingerpick to impress people that dont know how to play? Come on man

  32. PeluMaad says:

    That sounds more like St Louis inflected Robert Johnson than Patton-House Delta stuff…..but I LOVE that guitar.

  33. alexander1977ish says:

    Fantastic lesson, fantastic hat as well! i grew up linking cincy and dayton.

  34. bernhardt2 says:

    nice lesson, too terrible you don’t exactly show us what u are playing in the beginning, it sounds different when i do exactly as you say :) but anyway it allready sounds vgood, and I appreciate the effort you place in the video :)

  35. river2sky says:

    i need lighter strings….ouch

  36. Tim Sparks says:

    Excellent playing but I really like your sound!

  37. Effivera says:

    Fantastic! I just subscribed to your channel. thank you.

  38. Vodoley1951 says:

    как можно научиться без табулатур? Только если ты гений ловишь на лету.

  39. burnindownthehouse says:

    This fingerpicking is just so hard for me cuz I played with a pick my whole life. I am so frustrated. I wish I woould have learned fingerstyle guitar first before culture with a pick because people who don’t play guitar often reckon fingerpicking sounds more complex and they are impressed by it.

  40. activemelody says:

    It’s an ancient 1920s Stately Parlor Acoustic Guitar.. made in Chicago. Not sweet but plays well.

  41. 12Radius says:

    Very cool for blues . nice job on lesson

  42. activemelody says:

    It’s a 1920s era Stately guitar. Not in very excellent shape, but fun to play.

  43. RJADVids says:

    Any chance of doing a video of how to play John Lee Hooker’s Boogie Chillen?

  44. Jimaagh says:

    I wanna quite my job and just play the blues, no kidding I’m serious

  45. 12Radius says:

  46. provokhatib says:


  47. Laserfilepe says:

    Fantastic lesson. Can’t wait to get out to my shop and start praticing it. I do reckon I will break down and buy a metronome. Keeping that base note will be a challenge!
    Thanks and keep it up
