  1. Yes — the move with the thumb on the Dmaj chord is making it a "slash" chord (D/F#) or Figured Bass (Dmaj — 6/3 inversion). Playing D/F# in the key of C, prior to G (V) is a secondary dominant (D is the V/V). With the figured bass, that move creates an ascending line cliche (F# > G)
    As a guitar player, I wasn't very big on music theory, but I learned, mainly out of curiosity. And it has had a huge impact on how I play!

  2. Love these vids. I like the hosts style/approach and can tell the guy has a genuine passion for music and the artists themselves. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿💙🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿💙🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿💙🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿💙🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿💙

  3. Hank Williams? Cass McCombs? Step aside, you impostors to real talent: ya’ll got nothing on that Walmart Kid.

  4. "The biggest poseur ever discovers his right hand after years of not realizing he had one and was using it."

  5. They need to bring back this series, always great stuff. that D form he is playing @ 2:32 would be considered an inversion of the major E shape of the major D cord

  6. obviously i know its love sick blues and its an old blues song but what everyone really know it as is the the song mason ramsay sung

  7. I am still trying to ascertain whether this “show” is a spoof. Kind of like a pedestrian attempt at Spinal Tap. Never seen someone so uncomfortable with the guitar. Both of them.

  8. I bet Cass is a real hoot at parties. Lol. Just kidding. I actually met him in my friend’s living room in Chicago. He was nice….and yes….extremely quiet. Love his music.

  9. Loved Cass McCombs for a good few years now. Always thought he was massively under appreciated. Got to see him at Release festival in Athens (Greece) couple of years back. He and his band were brilliant. @5:50 is beautiful.
    Only just come across the Guitar Moves series after somehow finding the hilarious Dean Ween one, then today the Josh Hommes one and now this. Absolutely brilliant and my next couple of days will be catch up on all the Matt Sweeny GM's. Love them.

  10. They should talk about "picking" or "strumming" hand rather than left or right. Not everyone plays right-handed, so saying pay attention to your left-hand means something completely different. Yes I know, most people are right handed, and yes I can figure out what they're talking about, but it's still ignorant.

  11. This guy has some really good music, why are comments disabled for alot of these Cass McCombs videos. Does anyone know?

  12. Ever since I've seen this video I've just wanted to find a pal and just sit, smoking and playing guitar in a nice back garden.
