  1. Exelent!! Thank you very much :-)..I can finally learn to play me some BLUES!!

  2. i would seriously pay money to have a video on just the damn 3 note chuck berry blue thing he does with the hammer on, for the life of me i cant get that

  3. Ditto on helping me connect the dots. My first inclination was that this was too simple even for me (not very accomplished) yet I came back to this vid several times noodling with your suggested fills and play with combinations and learning each time through.

  4. Brian I got my first electric guitar today. Thanks so much for all of the work you put into your channel.

  5. I have tuned in a bazzzilion U Tuber lessons, somehow someway this one just clicked for me. U r much appreciated from this nubee.

  6. Thank you Brian for getting me started on this great chunky rhythm pattern which has a great shuffle feel to it. What a terrific beginning to playing some blues on guitar. Love your feel on this. I’d like to hear you jam with Eric Clapton.
