    David, thanks again for a great lesson. I am amazed how easy you explain things I need to get going with songs. I am a strong beginner (maybe low end intermediate) player. I do miss the examples that used to be provided with the lessons – censorship. In any case, are they posted anywhere else (the forums)?

      Hi Bob

      Thanks for writing and thank you as well for your kind words concerning my work here at Guitar Noise. For whatever it’s worth, the missing examples aren’t about censorship and never have been. They are about paying to the songwriters what is rightfully due to them. That’s why we’re still working on negotiating with the various publishers in order to purchase the legal rights to use their copyrighted material. Hopefully, this will be one that we’ll be able to get in the not to far-off future.
