Doing a bit of work on this heavily requested lesson, Daughters by John Mayer, and man oh man Robbie McIntosh is incredible. Such an amazing guitar player, so tasteful and nails it every time. He played a small acoustic duo gig in a restaurant I was in for New Years Eve a few years ago, and he played incredible all night. If you see him playing near you, don't miss it. He's got great albums out too; solo and with McCartney and loads of others. In guitar lands he's 'bout as good as it gets.

New lesson this Friday is Tired Of You by the Foo Fighters πŸ™‚ Awesome beginner rock song to work on 'chugging your palm muted power chords' in Drop D tuning! And we look at some of the second part too (but not the harmony lines!). Hope you dig it.

Hopefully, this proper rock will balance out the Wham Christmas song out tomorrow πŸ˜‰ ha ha!

I tell ye, Elliott Smith was a genius. Incredible songwriter with a fascinating sense of harmony and seriously great (underrated) guitar skills. This song has some real tricky passages which I thought were happy accidents but are pretty consistent live. Figure 8 remains in my top 5 albums of all time - incredible songs, some stella guitar playing and great tones. This version he messes up one word and really shows his delicate state of mind. Such a fragile soul and so sad he left so early.
