    Nice as always. Your communication really is excellent. I know plenty of players and teachers who just can't seem to verbalize what it is they are trying to teach. Not so with you. Nice. :aok

    Great lick Jeff, and a really cool Tuttle T style too - sounds great!

    Thanks, Dana

    A: I hope licks 2 through 50 are as instructive as this, and that the instruction is as brilliant as this.

    B: This is easily one of the best of these licks type lessons I've ever seen. Kudos.

    C: The absolutely most brilliant part is the way you don't end just teaching the lick, but teaching how its elements can be used separately as well. I never see this - usually it's "here's the lick" - you did, "here's the lick" and "here's how you can use it". That's what I think people are looking for.

    D: Did I say brilliant? If I didn't, brilliant :)

    Thanks Jeff.

    I love that it's a groove lick...not just a lick over a groove. Well done!

    When do you expect this course to be available, Jeff? I have your 50 Blues Rock Licks course and really enjoyed it (especially the Grissom-like phrase!).

    Love the Tuttle and the lick, Jeff. (A Tuttle is likely more within my reach than the skills:eek:, but I'll give'er a shot!:beer).

    Thanks for posting this!

    PS: It just occurred to me that I no longer own a guitar that Michael has not fretted for me. Kinda spoiled now! I think you can relate.

    Thanks. Glad you like it.

    Thank you!

    In the next month I believe, give or take a few weeks. I will be posting more of previews like this one soon.
    Well... it is clear to me that you need to buy a guitar from Michael. :p

    Love it.
    I can't hybrid pick worth a damn so I just fingerpick it. Loses a bit of the bite but it still sounds sweet.
    Thanks.

    Nice lick - think I'll work this into my practice session tonite. Working on a funky version of "Love For Sale" (in Bb).

    Actually I often finger pick it as well. Looses a little bite but gains a little warmth.

    Very cool Jeff. I haven't made it over to your lessons on TF yet but I definitely will next. Truefire is an amazing site!
