Hi Mike

Wanted to give you a heads up regarding subject for upcoming lesson. The song I'm working on is Give A Little Bit by SuperTramp. It's an awesome 12 string song; however, for some unknown reason Inam having some trouble smoothing out the rhythm. I'm not trying to copy the original artist on exactly how it's played on the original recording;however, I have found a couple of YouTube videos lessons that would work for me, but I seem not to be getting it down to sound smooth. Hoping maybe you could help get me in the right direction. When you have a moment try googling Give A Little Bit Supertramp Guitar Lesson Jason Read as a reference as I think the rhythm depicted is a good compromise.

Looking forward to the upcoming lesson with you,

Thanks,

carmine

Hi Carmine - thanks for letting me know what you're working on. I'll check out the Jason Read video and we'll work on it at your lesson.

See you then!

Hi Carmine,

I was wondering, Is it the case that if you pay for a private lesson you don't get to Personal Message the instructors? Still only a public forum for two-way communications?

Kind Regards

Hi Anthony - the lessons are set up on GT but through a third party scheduling system that does not facilitate private messaging. Private messaging is left up to the instructor's discretion but usually not required.
