@hippiefilth No im not, people only use ernies cos a million artists use them, d’addarios are brill, we all hae our own tastes

@21Placebo I hope your joking…D addario’s are horrible!

@Bluebuthappy182 get D’addario’s there better they dont snap as easily but they do lose tone quicker.

i wonder , what’s your practice schedule ? ’cause i try hard , but i don’t know if playing 3hr straight with metronome is the best way to improve . sure , it’s great , but it takes lots of courage … so i take breaks , but … i’d love to know how do you practise .

@kcobuntu yeah he got a rude awakening at 12:48, then got up and left to sleep somewhere else.

In metal, bass notes are the only break a listener gets! hehe. >=)

Hey wonderful video. You are a great guitarist! Can I ask how long you have been playing?

@riffoftheweek I do too, nice, rock on

ha… thats a heck of a first take at the end there..

Your dog is in the back XD and listen to your great playing….

Dave your phrasing is very good and characteristic of you

“Moonlight Path” sounds beautiful! Can’t wait for the new album!

nice cat! hahahah

Dave, another great Lesson..Could you do one on “Structuring a Practice Routine” in the future as this would be very useful..ie Warm Ups,Technique, rhythm, scale etc etc. Thanks

@riffoftheweek cool man I’ll check them out

Man, that blues jam was killer. The upcoming record sounds great too.
I only started watching rotw recently, but I’m quickly becoming a big fan of Dave. Haven’t heard an instrumental guitarist with such musicality since Satriani.
No offense to the other greats, of course.

Hey Dave) Nice ROTW! I wanted to thank you for your online private lessons. You have helped to eliminate a lot of bad habits I have been struggling with for years. If anybody is considering taking lessons from Dave don’t hesitate. He is an awesome teacher and can help take your playing to the next level. Best money I ever spent! Thanx again Dave
