    Sir, Rather than telling i am beginner, i can say i am new to music world. I would like to learn guitar. So i have done basic research and came to know Acoustic are the best for beginners. Now the problem i had it is very common, Choosing guitar in my budget of best quality and brand. I know as high expensive as the quality but i cannot afford expensive. So suggest me best. I am from India and i am thinking to buy Epiphone DR 100 or Yamaha FG730S as you suggest.

    Dear Thomas, you are the lord of guitarists and teachers, your method for teaching is fantastic and I just see each of your videos twice and third time I can play it myself, you are number one, I wish I where near you and could come to you and learn of you face to face but still via your videos I clearly underestand what you are teaching us, thankkkkk yoouuuu, you are the master . If you ever came to England do not book a hotel ,my flat is yours as long as you want.

      Hey Rou,

      You’re offer is overwhelming. The pleasure is mine. Who knows, one of these days – we can jam together. Let’s crossed our fingers 🙂
      Thank you so much for believing and for trusting me and my lessons. As long as I can, I won’t stop giving you lessons that are easy to follow and so easy to learn.

      Take care,

    Toma’s, I just watched one of your videos on YouTube and really enjoyed it. I was a bassist both acoustic and electric but want your opinion on how I get used to the tiny strings and spacing on guitars? It sounds crazy but I play jazz horn lines on my electric basses but am grossly sloppy even when strumming chords! The newest person to guitar would probably have an easier time of it than me! I am planning on coming here often to learn from you so any of your thoughts on this would be great. Thanks for your time Tomas !
