  1. Thank you man, this is just what ive been waiting to find for over 8 years of my tab playing, its time to understand music and my fretboard at a better level, I am desperate 🙂 will be watching all your videos today!

  2. Feel great to be alive heh ? 😛
    Just bought my git a month ago. This time ill go pro with my guitar. My last past life i was on of the Buddha disciple.

  3. You’re one of the best teachers I have had the pleasure of coming across. You explain the concepts so clearly and the structure of your teaching is very organised. Thank you.

  4. Incredible, easy lesson for people drowning in a world of musical illiteracy. You’ve clearly helped so many people, too. Thank you sir.

  5. Nicely done Hunter. Been playing “by ear” my whole life and now want to learn music theory. I used to think when I was a teenager that learning theory would add too much structure and rob me of creativity by instilling musical rules and do’s and don’ts, put me in a box of sorts musically. Part of teen-age angst I suppose. Now I see it’s actually a way to break free and explore an infinite number of new musical landscapes once one learns the basics. So again, thanks!

  6. I have a ton of respect for people like this who share knowledge in a way that clearly teaches the lesson on a basic level without being the least bit condescending. There’s a visible awareness that we all have to start somewhere and a genuine desire to help people.

  7. Finally, someone who can explain this simply enough for me to understand it. Very well done, Hunter, and thank you.

  8. Thanks for this. I’ve tried to play guitar multiple times but always quit because I don’t understand what I’m doing, the tools I’m actually working with. This series seems like it will help a ton!

  9. Thanks man great lesson. After multiple guitar teaches over 10 years on and off I don’t think we covered this. No wonder I am not progressing haha.

  10. I’ve been playing guitar for like 5 years now, and I’ve never bothered to actually learn any bit of theory, I’ve learned everything by ear and it’s really stunning my progression. Thankful for these little videos, gonna watch all of them and finally learn something new.

    1. This is just superb, been searching for “free song notes for guitar” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried – Peynharlotte Acoustic Smasher – (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my m8 got cool success with it.

    2. Winner of a video, I’ve been looking for “how to play guitar chords by ear” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried – Peynharlotte Acoustic Smasher – (should be on google have a look ) ? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my partner got great success with it.

    3. Winner of a video, I been tryin to find out about “how to play guitar chords by ear” for a while now, and I think this has helped.

    4. that’s what i was gonna ask, cause i was in the same boat. i started learning theory couple of yrs ago and I enjoy playing more now than ever. +Trump’s America

  11. Hunter – I was a trained educator at one point in my life. One of the biggest challenges in adult education is bringing the conversation down to the appropriate level of the learner. An instructor is always well versed in the topic they are teaching, so naturally they want to converse in the vernacular of the subject, but people new to the subject can’t relate because they are not as well versed.

    You have done a fabulous job of simplifying the discussion such that anyone could understand it, regardless of their prior exposure. That, my friend, is the sign of true genius.

    I plan on watching more of your content since I’m an older guy trying to learn to play the guitar for the third time in my life. Let’s hope that the third time is the charm.
