Your videos are the real deal. The only videos where I really learn something I can use.
I used one of your licks in a gig on the same day I learned it.

Hi I realy like your stuff. But do we just play this four times to make one 12 bar, Or is there more to this that can be added to fill the rest of the 12 bar since theres only three bars of notes. you know what Im what mean Bro. Or do you have a longer version thats easy to work with like this, these kind of licks are cool please let me know if you have more for this song I will buy them.
Thanks so so much
