    Hey all! Be sure to pop your questions here ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to see how you get on with this one!

    • Josh Solomon says:

      Iโ€™m enjoying this lesson, but guitar science is acting buggy. Is anyone else having issues? The player wonโ€™t play now. I use Safari with iphone and iPad. Maybe itโ€™s related to the latest ios release.

      Thank you.

      • Dan Holton says:

        Hi Josh! I have had one other student saying this… Can you do me a massive favour and send me a screencast video to – Then I can see what’s happening a little more clearly. Also, as a little note, try using Google Chrome on the ipad and iphone, it may work better (according to the plugin website).

  • Kenny Wheeler says:

    Another great lesson Dan! Keith is one of my Heroes! All is good but I am having to keep myself from making the D shape A chord into a suspended 4th!!! Fat fingers I guess!!!

  • Kenny Wheeler says:

    Hi Dan! Thank you so much for this course I am Loving it. One question though in bar 9 of Part 4, Guitar Science, the tab as well as the staff shows the phrase ending on the A but the track is actually ending on the E. Is that a typo or am I hearing it wrong?

    • Dan Holton says:

      Well spotted! Yes I do think in the recording I accidentally go to the E (probable force of habit)… both A and E work well there, so do whatever feels natural to you ๐Ÿ™‚
