  19. activemelody says:

    @FordIsBetter In fact, there wasn’t even a guitar there – it was all air guitar

  20. FordIsBetter says:

    @InspireNorth Try an alder-bodied, maple-necked strat, load it up with some Lace Gold feeler pickups, plug into an ancient Fender amp and practice. Thats been his basic setup. Hope that helps!

    Well presented Brian, its been helpful and got me inspired and motivated. I see some comments are hostile. They must have tragic lives and a huge chip on the shoulder. Hope you keep doing these lessons.

  22. InspireNorth says:

  23. Satchel95 says:
