You don't nesseserily need to play it on acoustic, you can practice it on electric guitar as well. It's actually easier to play this on electric. The sound is better on acoustic tho.
wow Ivan!.. very cool lesson!
Thanks Luciana. More acoustic blues coming up!
Very nice lesson Ivan! You are the master of blues!
I love this. I just bought my first acoustic and wasn't really sure what to do with it, and now I have my answer. This is officially my favorite acoustic song. Thank you!
Great Lesson, I love this. I have some simple questions though. Please forgive me as I'm still very new and trying to learn basics as well. At the top of the tab you have Q and E. what do they stand for? I'm pretty sure the 3 is for a triplet. The other thing is the g and the b in the tab. Trying to watch closly I think they stand for hammer on and pull off. Is this correct?

Brings up another question though... Whats a ghost note?
Whoops, sorry, meant grace note, but would like to know both anyway.... sory.
We definitely need more acoustic stuff at GMC
Cool lesson btw !
Thanks man. Unfortuantely I had to return the acoustics (it wasn't mine), so I can't do the one more lesson on blues I planned
Hey! This lesson blew me away... exactly why I bought my acoustic!!! We both got an epiphone thats cool. Very nice lesson indeed! Usefull as heck.. the pureness "is that a word?" Or purity is so clear and awesome... lightning hopkins all the way!
Cool man I'm glad you like it. It's not mine acoustic, a friend borrowed to me, and I used it for couple of lessons, but then had to return it. When I buy acoustic, you'll have more acoustic lessons from me, I promise
This is my favorite series on GMC Ivan. I just love acoustic blues Nothing can beat that!
Hehe, thanks man, glad to hear you like it!
I love this style of blues - I would really like to see something advanced - Kirby Kelly style double slide would be very cool.
Wow, this is some great stuff. I would sure like to do it, but I'm not that good with two slides. Perhaps in some time when I learn to play with two slides on a bit more advanced level. Thanks for the recommendation tho.
Great lesson. My first lesson in GMC!!!! My first time playing Blues!
Thanks Master Ivan!
