Just wanted to let you know about a new series of videos I’m doing where I answer your guitar related questions.

The series is on YouTube so subscribe if you haven’t yet and I’ll be releasing regular videos where you get to ask me anything guitar related and I’ll answer.

All you have to do to get your questions answered is click on this link where you get to watch video #1, and leave your question in the comments below.

I’ll answer your question directly in the comments and the best and/or most interesting questions I’ll do videos for as well.

It doesn’t matter how simple or complex your questions is I’ll answer it. Do you have issues with strumming, rhythm, timing, chord changes, singing and playing, weak fingers, poor picking tone, fingerstyle issues?

Let me know, be as specific as you like and I’ll help you as best as I can.

In the past, most of you have emailed me with questions and you can still do so, but it would definitely be better if you could ask your question on the YouTube page as everyone else then gets to see the question and answer and we can all learn from each other.

If you don’t have a YouTube account, you can leave your question on this blog in the comments section below and if your question is private, of course, just email me and we will keep it private.

The first question is a good one – especially for those struggling with barre chords as it refers to one of the toughest barre chords in the book – how to play the dreaded B flat chord (sometimes called an A# chord) barre chord.

Check it out below to see my useful tips on this, including my preferred fingering, how to build up to playing it in an easier way, some of my random thoughts on Backstreet boys (yes, indeed!) and more…

As well as this reader questions segment, I have another really exciting addition coming to the blog soon and it is something completely, different, a lot of fun and not many guitar teachers do it.

I’ll keep you posted on this.

As for now, don’t forget to leave your questions on the video over at YouTube. I will answer them ALL but get your questions in now as I’ll be around to answer them a bit quicker over the next few days.

You are one of the best Guitar teacher on the net and very generous too, with your free
Are you likely to add a few more like Lara’s Theme(Dr. Zhivago) and Theme from Love Story.

Many thanks for the kind words, Peter. Those are ones I hadn`t considered until you suggested them to me but I`ll certainly have a look at them and see if they are suitable – possibly for my Elite Guitarist Inner Circle where most of my new fingerpicking lessons are based. Many thanks. Dan
