    I must say it was hard to find your website in search results.

    You write awesome articles but you should rank your blog higher in search engines.

    Wow, this song rocks! I’m taking the beginner lessons but what makes me wonder is will I be making progress if I try a “side song” as I continue trying to perfect the early D, A, E chords? I know my chord changes really need work but I can’t help to see the possibilities of playing a great song such as this one.
