      This 3 window lesson has inspired and motivated me to start practicing even more. What a great format to follow. The note over tab window is great for connecting the notes. I have your original I-BGU and this lesson and format ties it all together. Thanks, And Great Job!

    I have a hard time seeing what notes your fingers are on looking straight on at you. It would be really nice if you had a small window showing dots on the actual strings being played with the fret board.

    Is this purely an instrumental or can we sing along to it?

    Hey Griff! I have quit playing again, but this is what I needed to fire me back up. Restringing one of my guitars to practice tonite. Can you look back and tell me how old my BGU set is please? I may need to replace it.

    This was really lovely to hear . Also you teach in such a way that one feels encouraged to play oneself. Thanks for this vid. Tabs chart is are given and that is great help. I must say you are magician teacher.

    Very good. This is essentially of course Robert Johnson ‘s Love in Vain at least to start with so you can sing along! but played convincingly in standard tuning
    very clever.many thanks

    Hi Griff, I really enjoyed this last series of acoustic blues videos especially the theory part I find that very interesting and I feel that things just make more sense now. Down to the station is a great song and a bit challenging to me as I’ve recently had surgery on both bands, but I continue to plug away. Thanks for the inspiration and keep up the great work.

    It’s always so great to see and hear what the final product sounds like. So many times when I am trying to learn a new song from a song sheet or a book I never know if I have the song sounding the way is should. Thanks again for all you do for us. Excellent! I really do appreciate all the extras you give us. Leo

    Great lesson, blues for the lone home guitar player that when replicated to a reasonable standard gives you the pleasure of sounding like you know what your doing for a change.

    Many thanks Griff, your guitar teaching method is excellent. All the best.

    Reply Reply February 11, 2016

    I love songs that have great opening riffs and this song certainly has that, so I have already worked on it for an hour, have it memorized, and now I am working on the counting, so I go slow with the counting and slowly speed it up. I love great riffs during the song too. This is good stuff, for sure. I must comment on your use of video. I would love to know how you got the tab to run across the screen as you were doing this. You have real expertise in video too.

    Thanks, Griff. Lots of this stuff I’ve found in “I Believe” and I Got the Blues” from BGIAB.
    Are there any words to this, and if so could you post them somewhere? Thanks.

    Hey Griff,

    This is just so cool, and I will learn it soon. I often tune up my Acoustic Electric just to play dry.
    Great lessons.

    Griff – Your ability to count with your playing is not only extremely helpful but amazing. My BIGGESTweakness in soloing is keeping track of the bars (or if not soloing, the band). Even with your now-famous 4-note song, which I know by heart, it took me a long time to end up at the right places in terms of chord changes and turn-around. Brian

    Thanks for all the free videos Griff.
    I’m not a beginner by any means but I still enjoy your free videos.
    Thanks for all your hard work and I hope you keep providing free videos, “down to the station” is great. All the best.

    Hi Griff,
    Are you looking through the camera in my computer???
    I just bought a new acoustic guitar a few days ago, and then you start showing all of this awesome acoustic stuff.
    And then you put your ABGU course up for sale (discounted). Spooky!!
    I’m 3/4 through BGU at the moment, but I’m so tempted to splash out on this course.

    Hi Griff,
    I appreciate all the videos you put up. Top notch.
    I have the originsl BGU among other courses of yours; is there a substantial difference between the accoustic BGU to warrant the cost? I mainly use my accoustic anyway.

    Griff…I taught myself to play Honky Tonk, Roadrunner and Hideaway by ear and using no pick 60 years ago. Then maybe a few more chords that sounded good to me to play rhythm guitar. Then a few pathetic and sporadic attempts to go further but without much success.

    I am now trying to master Down to the Station to fill in a lot of blanks. Thanx for the info and inspiration you have given me to get back on the horse again after being thrown many, many times…!!!

    When I actually get time to play and practice, I’m counting on this and other things you’ve sent to really make a difference. I’ve tried some of the others and I’m slowly improving, and it’s helping with the pain from arthritis in my fret hand, also!
    Thanks Griff!

    I really do appreciate your generosity with your abilities. It is hard enough to find resources for learning, And it is very expensive to buy into a program without knowing if it will be what you want. This way I have no fear at all with going into a long term relationship with you for my musical future.
