Hey @BanjoBen - thanks for this great lesson! I started watching the lesson late tonight and ended up watching the whole thing, then got so inspired I had to run and get my guitar - even though it was 10pm! I was having so much fun with this lick that I wanted to show you me trying it out. It’s not super polished since I had JUST learned the lesson, so there’s some mistakes, but I’d love to hear what you think! I really enjoy your guitar lessons! Thanks for everything you do! :grinning:

Hi Ben. This lesson is going to be very useful. I am going to enjoy getting proficient with it. I am curious what model that Martin is. I am starting to get that old I might need a new/another guitar itch and that one sounds and looks great.

Great lesson, I use this lick alot but mostly in the Key of D instead of G, along with a D run instead of the famous G run. I’m not a Gold pick member (not yet anyways, I’m hoping to become one if I win you essay contest for graduating seniors😁) so I don’t know if you talked about transposing this lick to different keys, but it really works well on the D position. I tried it in C but its not the same effect.

Cool, good luck in the contest! You should post a video here with you playing it in D position.
