Josh Willis Still to this day, one of the most tasteful strumming patterns I've ever heard is when the acoustic part in Sidewinder begins. Being self taught, I've hit a hard plateau from not knowing how to find everything to learn, so the launch of this website is such a fantastic thing. Thanks guys

Brian Haner Sr. Awww - Thank you, Josh! That was such a great song. Loved that part - such a nice set up, and when The Rev and Johnny come in, it's epic!

Ivan Boaretto You can search the backing tracks in youtube, it is a good way to start. Example: backing track Am, to play the jam in that key (A minor). Hope i help 🙂
