Whenever I sit down to a guitar lesson with somebody, and they’re unsure of what they wanna learn… I just start playing the intro to this song and watch their face light up.

“I wanna learn THAT!”

Regardless of age, ethnicity or musical taste…they all want to be able to play it. And it’s actually pretty simple. I’ve taught it to so many people I couldn’t even tell you how many.

OK so why is it so cool??
