    How about a Sweet Home Alabama lesson? We all should learn how to play this one.

    Sweet Home Alabama is also one of my favorite songs! I’d love to see a lesson on this song.

    That’s really cool. What a great way to learn guitar! And Sweet Home Alabama is an unforegettable song. If you could combine the two in a podcast that would be amazing!

    Anything by Shawn Mullins? I am a self taught guitar player and played for 40 years for just my own personal enjoyment. Never got past just strumming a handful of the same old chords. But I am happy doing just that. Your website has inspired me greatly. I have started playing some open mic nights and am having a blast. I can’t thank you enough.
