    hie Eric..I believe you are the best guitar teacher i have eve come across. .I live in Canada, Vancouver,but originally from Zimbabwe, Southern Africa. I am 52 and I have struggled since 2010 to learn bass, electric and acoustic I appreciate these lessons i get on video via email. I wish I could come there..and take private lessons from in South Carolina. i feel like I am getting no where by myself..I was watching and playing along with your video on solos without scales.. its amazing..!!!!!!!
    man you are great.!!!! may God bless your work…

  2. Hello again Eric. I’m new to guitar and am interested to know what would be an affordable lightweight good sounding electric guitar.

    • Take a look at the (Fender)Squier Electric Strat style guitars. Don’t buy the absolute cheapest one though. Look for the step up models, which start at around $199.00 up(new). They are of decent quality. The lowest priced ones ($125-179) are not very good. Thanks for watching my videos!

      • It’s a beautiful guitar, no doubt! A friend of mine has one of those MIM (Made in Mexico) Strats and he loves it. It’s completely up to you, but you should think long and hard about how much money you want to spend at this point in your development. An expert can make a $200 guitar sound like a $600 guitar, but a novice won’t get any more out of a $600 guitar than they can get out of a $200 guitar. Also, you can buy a typical MIM Stat all day for around $500, even less if they go on sale. This special edition looks awesome, but you are paying $200 extra for the paint job. If that’s nothing for you then go for it, but if that’s a lot of money for you, then think about it before you stretch your budget. Besides that, if you get into it you may find that you will also want some other types of guitars real soon, plus some other goodies like pedals and stuff. If you blow your budget on one really cool electric then you may not have the funds to get a decent acoustic for practice, or a travel guitar if you are on the road a lot like I am. I’ve only been playing for about a year, but already I have 3 electrics, 1 acoustic and a travel guitar. The most expensive one I have cost me $300. I love ’em all, and they all make me happy. At my skill level I’m not even close to hitting the limits on any of the guitars I have. When/if I ever do, then I’ll consider shelling out the big money. Buying an expensive guitar is not a short cut for learning to play one. You have to pay your dues and practice, practice, practice. Whatever you decide to get, just stick with it.

      • great points…at this stage I’d make a 100k guitar sound bad 😉

        send along a link to an option I should/could consider. I’m not too concerned about color, just one that has good components and sound (MIM is cool by me; I’ve heard that they produce better quality than most). Thanks for the awesome reply!

  4. Hi Eric,
    Are you familiar with African guitar styles and playing intervals?
    Do you know the music of Prince Nico Mbarga?
    Definitely could use some help figuring out some of the great double stop licks played by Prince Nico’s guitarist Jacob Nguni.
    Thank you for your lessons!

    • Hi Dan! Sorry but I am only familiar with American music styles because of playing in public venues in the US all my life. This is definitely some music that I would like to explore in the future! Thanks for watching!

      • 69 years old and what a blessing it is to view your in depth lessons playing tunes that have eluded me for decades. When I started playing in 1963 there was no internet, Youtube or cell phones. I had to play a record moving the needle 100’s of times to learn a lick.

        Bravo👍

  6. Hello Eric. I’ve watched some of your bass tutorials on youtube and it has inspired me to purchase a bass. My one dilemma is, I’m left handed and I am unsure if I want to play left hand or right hand. What should I do?
