  3. im definetely missing the “Funk“ playlist marty 🙂

  4. Your a great guitar player Marty ? Thanks for the tips!

  5. Excellent Marty. All the tips are great, but the idea of telling yourself a story had never occurred to me. Since I've finally developed enough facility to move around fairly well without having to focus completely on that, that idea will be a gamechanger! Thanks!

  6. Great advice Marty! I'm a singer so find the phrasing natural in my playing. It adds so much texture and depth to the solo! I always try to let the guitar breathe.

  16. Excellent lesson Marty as usual. Been following since the early days and without you I'm no where near the player I am today. From learning my first solo, to improving major and minors scales together, to the good ol land of A7. I used to love learning the lick lessons. Any thoughts on bringing back lick of the day or lick of the week lessons ? Cheers.. P.S love the new channel, it feels refreshed!

  17. over the years marty you've become one of my favorite players, so much soul

  20. just discovered Marty on youtube after i decided to dust off my old guitar and get back into playing. this dude is one hell of a teacher. These videos have helped remind me of everything that I had forgotten, and even launched me into whole new concepts I never understood before. thanks marty

  21. Thank you ,I had been a fan ever since ,wish to play as good as you are. 😀

  22. Marty, I've been practicing pentatonics long now and I know all the roots and all positions on the neck, what should I learn next. I'm into blues and rock n roll

  23. Tip # 5: Make faces like you're having an orgasm while you play. No joke it helps!

  24. Awesome vid Marty.  Was that the King of Tone pedal giving you the overdrive?  One of the best tones I've heard you get with that Divided By 13 Amp.

  25. Hi Marty,

  43. I feel this is one of your best lessons, but all your lessons are great.

    Rock-on my brother

  44. Marty, I like you. Genuine kind of person. Wish you all the best… maybe this advice is misplaced. But you've been putting an insane amount of content out in rapid succession. Slow it down. Give people a chance to appreciate what you've done. Give your self somewhere to go. Don't drop all your content at once.

    People might disagree because they want to see more of you.

  45. Oscar Peterson is also a good example

  46. Why this channel doesn't have 100k+ viewers I'll never understand. Thanks for the great lesson!

  47. More great stuff Marty, thanks.
