  8. Sirobin5 says:

    Hey there! Have you ever tried the X7 Guitar Mind Implant (do a search on google)? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my cousin learned to jam with it.

  9. heyman29323 says:

    And, oh yeah. I forgot to bring up, Declan’s Grandpoppy is one of the main singers of Men Of The Deeps ( and i judge one of the most hauntin voices in Canada). A Candaian instuttion – a choir made of a coal miners. Maybe that’s his musica talent.l

  10. heyman29323 says:

    What I meant is this turorial will help him a lot. Refocus his chord positions if necessary.

  11. heyman29323 says:

    My son is ten. And he plays chords very easily. He picked up cord changing sweet much on his first day. Weird and cool. But I’m not sure if he is musically talented or not judge it or not. His strumming is not the best. And I can’t play at alll, (though my fingers can do the craziest drumning on the planet – and of course, – I by no means took up drumming or any other instrument) But he is only ten. And I reckon this will help him alot.. I reckon my son Declan will some day rule the guitar

  12. rydrin says:

    STRESSSSSSS I Refuse to give up but this is the first hurdle and i’m struggling. My fiddle with’s don’t want to play with me:(

  15. msai93 says:

  16. TheRealPetChicken says:

  17. Mveliz3556 says:

    I remember when I couldn’t play this for sh**!! lol

  18. InspiracionMusicaLJ says:

    This chord is simple, too. But I despise how you aren’t supposed to play the first top two strings.

  19. watsonvillian says:

    @pythonstrangle8 get some coated strings if you can.They help

  20. pythonstrangle8 says:

  35. dudemusicspace says:

    Learn this…

    or use the Eddie Van Halen method of ‘diminishing down the stairs and landing on your feet’.

    ;O)

  36. KELBAGCAROL says:

    thanks very much for these lessons. Most appreciated

  37. jltei says:

    I wish millions of players could dig harmony enough to realize that a total understanding exists,where you can clarify everything from A to Z,from Bach to Pat Metheny,pre-tempered instruments period to nowadays,with Wagner,”finishing”the system,ie possibly linking anything to anything with musical meaning that we tend to name “beauty”:the quality of the structure(cadencessubstinv) makes us enjoying the clarification it supports.Joe used this knoweldge to death. His videos are of the outmost importance.

  38. TheBluesMood says:

    I would imagine the best teach ill ever have taught by. Thanks mate.

  39. ollywatkins says:

    teacher said “shit” word

  40. pepakake27 says:

    excellent lesson! well done! you clarified well what it is about!

  41. ZeppelinFloydRoses says:

    I like how he’s going through all the C chords…. ”Ahhh C6…. here.” & ”Uh, dunno what that one is, just sounds nice.”

  42. iTzNoxy says:

    Wouldn’t Minor/Major and Minor flat 5 also be families?

    So wouldn’t there be 5 chord types not 3?

  43. 2funk2bpunk says:

    @Josiahjjr Depends on what you want it to sound like but yup it’s theoretically right, except the D would a dominant 7th in your model.

  44. nivk08 says:

    very insightful

  45. nikxcs9182 says:
