Thank You Very Much, Justin Gitarrr

@brianlarsen Brian, wanted to ask before the old house gets shut so we can Read Only through the windows, I’d love to see the compilation you initiated and Roman made possible here. Please. :bat:

Haha, cheers Maggie for the ‘bump’ :wink:
The link is somewhere in my Learning Log, so I presume most of the good folk here have already watched it a couple of times… :rofl:

For those who have not yet had the pleasure… Well, here’s the YouTube blurb:
Two years ago, I decided to try and learn to play the guitar using the free www.Justinguitar.com course.
It’s been a blast.
I wanted to do a thank you song for Justin and remembered this ‘earworm’, used in a UK chocolate ad campaign in the 1980s.
I’m far too young to remember the original but it seemed especially appropriate, as I now live in Merseyside and have met John Gorman from the Scaffold a couple of times.
I roped a bunch of the website’s friendly forum members into helping me out.
We hope you enjoy the result.

… and from the ‘comments section’

This is not my project, nor Roman’s, nor the band’s, nor all the extra contributors’, nor all those who couldn’t take part or were left out due to numbers…
This is simply a consequence of what happens when people like Justin and his team do positive things, for no particular reward.
Good deeds cause more good deeds.
The world is a better place for this site and the people who make it work :slight_smile:
Cheers, Brian

Thank you very, very, very, very much!
What a nice gesture and isn’t it strange how Justin’s approach and whole personality attracts like-minded people who are even willing and able to put this up. I feel you have been touched the same way by his teaching „now“ as I already have been, when I discovered the first site and still am, when watching the new videos. A phenomenon this is.
Thanks for this thread!
