Anyone else love power washing? I find it almost addictive, especially my front porch that doesn't look like it was cleaned for a long time... turning the black concrete white!! To clarify. The tiles on the concrete are white for sure and the black is all dirt and mound, can tell from the white ones under the door cover part. I don't think it's been cleaned since the house was built in '66!

Hope y'all having a great weekend.

This weekend fun is the country classic Jolene by Dolly Parton. For a super tasty fingerstyle riff but can be simplified for beginners too! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you dig it!

Rather than all the threats and bs, I think they should swap haircuts and have a guitar duel. But who would win a guitar battle and what song would they each play to win? Free book to the funniest answer, but please keep it clean. ...

Wanna do a lesson on Carolina In My Mind by James Taylor, but man that is a tricky tune!! Not so much that it's technically 'hard' but it's real difficult to nail down exactly what he's doing (even watching video clips) and I can't be teaching it if I can't decide how it's done! Think it's why I gave up on doing a lesson on it a couple of years ago, but had forgotten! But man what an incredible singer/songwriter/guitarist he is. One of the finest musicians of all time in my list, and seems a real sweet and caring dude too. Long may he run!

Any of my guitar friends here into CrossFit? I've been training since I moved out of London and really enjoying it. Yesterday was my first session in the main class (after the 'on-ramp' learning period) and my body is aching today! 4 sets of: 400m run, 30 Box Jumps and 30 Ball Throws (20lb) for the WOD, after squats and strength work killed me! But feeling fitter than I've ever been! ๐Ÿ™‚ Filming lotsa lessons for y'all today! ...

The first lesson from the new studio is out, filmed it this afternoon! A tribute to Chris Cornell, the Soundgarden song Fell On Black Days, incredible song and super cool riff, a fitting song to play as a tribute to one of rocks all time greatest vocalists who left this world far too soon ๐Ÿ™

Well I think this'll be the setup to get going with anyway... leather chair is slightly better for playing on, and the sofa can be for my afternoon nap when I'm lucky enough to steal one! ha ha. Now to get the mics set up and audio routing all sorted, planning to up the game there too! Going to try to start filming tomorrow! yay! ...

Setting up to start filming today and really struggling to decide between the red velvet sofa or the leather chair for the next batch. Obviously the blanket stays either way but which you dig most?

So much to catch up with, just had a midweek break in the Cotswolds with my mum who is over from Australia and the family but gotta seriously get my head down and work now!

Hope y'all doing great ๐Ÿ™‚

Transcribing some Chris Cornell songs and stumbled on this INCREDIBLE performance of one of my Soundgarden favourites Fell On Black Days. This vocal performance is off the scale quality, perfect. And he plays great too.

Very sad to hear about Chester too. I don't think I gave his music enough of a chance to connect personally - few peeps asking why I hadn't posted about it... we all connect with different music I guess, but very sad to see anyone go too soon, and I hear he was a real nice guy. ๐Ÿ™ another black day.

Lesson Part 2 of Slash's main solo in Sweet Child O' Mine was web site only, but only 7k people found it, compared with nearly 70k for the Part 1 lesson... so I guess I have to face that a lotta folk wanna stay on YouTube and not venture over to the web site. So decided to release Part on YouTube here too. Here it is!

I'm looking for a permanent part time designer! You need to be well versed in both creative design (perhaps some illustration) and application of the created design theme to all common web platforms; YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Shopify and html web sites. Some knowledge of Drupal would be handy but not essential.

Would be a couple of days a week across a few projects, I'm casual about times and location if the work is done well! You can be anywhere as long as you have good internet and are up for at least some of my usual 'work' hours (9-6 UK time).

Please email me a CV and links to work you have done, financial expectations (how much you wanna get paid!) and your availability to justin at justinguitar dot com

I'm not sure how many will apply, but if it's loads I might not be able to get back to everyone cos I'm off the scale busy!! But I'll try.

Cat pic unrelated, but bound to help attract the right kind of person. ๐Ÿ™‚

What song lesson should be the first from the new studio?? I'm really struggling to decide... want something classic, probably rock, maybe Neil Young, or RHCP or Zeppelin or something like that... or a Knopfler classic... what should be the "I'm back" song?

Picture unrelated, but remember that no matter how cool you are there should always be time for tea in a china cup ๐Ÿ™‚ ha ha!

Been feeling in a bit of a playing rut the last week, probably because so much time being stolen by moving and setting up the studio.
