Thanks for the amazing tutorial. After watching your video I tried and came close to it. Being a beginner this a great achievement for me, And now I am eagerly waiting to play this in front of my teacher from whom I am taking music lesson.written by Xavier Kane, April 07, 2014
Yup, where is the detail melody parts?... written by brad3e56960, December 09, 2013
Hi Neil, Just joined as I've been watching YouTube clips of Waiting on a Friend, I just love the song. Very disappointed though that you don't teach the detail melody which is absolutely beautiful, rather just the basic chords. Your phrase "This'll be the shortest left hand section ever recorded" made me weep! I cant sign up for Target and hand over my money if you don't do better - But I'd like to as i think your is the best rendition on the web! It would be great if you could come back to me on this.written by tobysanders, October 19, 2012
really wish you'd show how to play the melody like you did on the sampel you tube piece- how can I get to that? thx craigwritten by likestoplay, September 05, 2011
thanks, I was surprised how simple this was to pick up with a basic strum. Hope to work on spicing it up a bit. I had totally forgotten how much I liked this album as a kid. It's been a couple years written by erik , February 01, 2010
It would be great to see the "Play Through" version in detail.written by Reid , October 27, 2009
Neil, Just wanted to take a minute to thank you for doing such a thorough job on these lessons. Being on your side of the camera is a tough job and you do it well! The best I've seen, and I've invested in a lot of video lessons and DVDs. I've learned so much from the extra detail (and diversions) that you add to these lessons. Thanks, John written by John Sadie, October 17, 2009
I guess everybody missed the Forum threads that discussed this a long time ago. Some of the newer songs (Harvest Moon for example) start working on adding the melody to the chords. As I add more that do this, the idea is that you will be able to start creating your own arrangements, even on the spot. In any case, we are definitely headed in that direction. By the way, I think the thread was called "Different Versions" or something similar. Neilwritten by Neil, July 26, 2009
Ditto! I would like to see the detail parts that really set your version above the camp fire versionwritten by MArk Bolan, June 14, 2009
