Summer Breeze bass part video
Hello everyone!
https://youtu.be/K7NrFaVbzwk
Here is a video that I'm working on.
In this one you can see me playing the bass part. I'll put one out with just the guitar part and then maybe one with all the parts simultaneously.

Knockin' On Heaven's Door - Guitar Lesson
Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, Guns and Roses... which one or ones do you like? I like them all for different reasons. In this video I've made understanding the chords and strum patterns easier. Hopefully this is an improvement over my other attempts to explain this song.
We go over all three versions in this video. I don't break down all the Intros in this video but I do go over the different chord arrangements. The newest version of my book will have three separate lead sheets with the lyric and chord differences. I'll publish this version very soon so that you can see them.

Summer Breeze, Bridge, Guitar Lesson
This is just a lesson for the Bridge of Summer Breeze by Seals and Crofts.

I'm still working on the cover, which has been giving me some trouble. I thought I was finished and was going to release it to you today but there are just a couple of parts that I can't stand, so they are going to be redone before anyone sees them.
Summer Breeze is a bigger task than I anticipated from the beginning!
Thank you for your support!

Summer Breeze Seals and Crofts Guitar Lesson
Here is the guitar lesson for Summer Breeze! (Still working on the cover.)
This was one of my favorite songs in 1972.
Let me know if you have any questions. This lead sheet is in the next version of the book which I'll release in a day or so.
Thanks everyone for your support!

Here's my production of Space Oddity by David Bowie. The lead guitar parts are my own creation. 
Listen with headphones so that you can hear everything. The bass guitar is really low.
I made a tab for the lead guitar and I'll put it in the next edition of the book after I get over this fever. 102.4 today. Thank goodness for online lessons. ;)
Thanks for watching, my friends .

Wild World - Cat Stevens cover
Here is my cover of Wild World. Working on the lesson now. 
Hope you like it. 
Can you find my two edits? If you see them put the time stamp in the comments below. I really tried to cover up those two mistakes well. 
See you later!

Long Train Runnin' - Doobie Brothers guitar lesson
This song has been a long time favorite of mine. It's all about love and the question, "Where would we be without it?"

I've tried explaining how the strum works in this video and I'm not sure that I've actually succeeded. There is an aspect to the main strum that I didn't explain when recording this video. It became apparent when I was editing. This aspect is how and when I hit the low E string and then mute it while playing the Em7 chord during the Intro and the first two lines of each verse. I may do a different video just on that strum. I've found that students generally have a hard time playing it.

We still have my son and his small family here until Sunday so I'll get back to finishing the cover next week.

Thank you for all of your support! 
Sincerely,
Hal
