    Thanks… not 100% sure, but I think that Blackbird/Chilli Peppers thing is also the intro to Romeo & Juliet by Dire Straits. Just write the song and let the lawyers look after it later on 🙂

    Marty, you basically taught me how to play guitar! I just wanted to say I love everything that you do and just appreciate you. I am finally making my own music now.

    I just saw one minute of this and i already find this super helpful. I'm a person who has no problems with writing lyrics, i'm always struggling with translating it into music. Thank you!

    Black Bird must've been where Harry Styles got the inspiration for "Sweet Creature" this means that this lesson applies to everyone, and that everyone can use it. 10/10 IGN.

    Thanks for the very open manner you discuss songwriting. I'm learning the guitar so I can do exactly what you say. That is, to put music to paper. I'm a lyricist, but I am not yet able to do chords or melodies.
    Interesting about how all the chords and progressions are similar. We live in a capitalist mode of production, so everyone tries to claim they've been copied to make money. It's actually a well-known legal tactic. The avg. public doesn't know, take a key like G, there are only so many open chords. So, what if I just programmed a computer to record every single chord, every rhythm, every groove, every beat structure, then copyrighted every single piece.
    True originality and song creation requires recombination or takes on others works. That's why I don't buy into this they copied me, bit. Coldplay's song does sound similar, but so what? I still don't understand why if someone creates a minor instrumentalist part, why they get to hang onto it forever. If it was the actual copying of the whole song,
    then I would understand.
    Thanks for your video. I enjoyed it.

    You're like the only person that actually talks about the music not the lyrics. In my opinion the lyrics are nothing without the music to amplify it. I honestly like instrumentals way more than music with lyrics haha

    Ok so Lindsey Stirling isn't a guitarist but a violinist and she does the chord progression thing to herself! I think of the song I saw BYU Vocal Point do at a show which is (I know they didn't write it but they performed the chord progression song breaking down so many song over the generations that have the same chord progression) and it was interesting that we listen to each of those songs with the same chord progression yet don't realize that they are all the same just sounds different with the lyrics and tempo changes! You'll have to watch it! It could be a great teaching tool!
    Ok now I have a question.. I just started playing the guitar and almost finished my first book when my teacher's wife died and he moved in with his adult children in another part of the state, I can't find a new teacher do you have any suggestions? My old teacher was in his 70's and has been playing guitar and drums his whole life and was a professor at a college in Utah and also taught high school music.. I'm picky because even though I'm a musician I'm totally new to the guitar and want to learn well! I'm also wanting to write music.. Help? Any advice? Thanks in advance! ??

    This is soo true.  Many great songs are based around A minor and G,  but I don't even realize it till I learn the song.  Also,  in Stairway to Heaven,  right before the guitar solo,  there is a part where 3 variations of an open D chord are played.  I don't even know what the chords are called,  I think one is a D sus 4th.  But anyway,  the first one is an open D with the 1st string not fretted,  second is an open D chord,  and the third one is an open D with the pinky in it's natural spot,  3rd fret I think.  Anyway,  I rearranged the chords,  added some delay,  and came up with a really cool thing for the verses of a song.  Just play around and you will find some cool shit!!!
