  1. Can you please do a video on Trust In Jesus by Third Day??? It’s my dads
    favorite song and I want to learn it for him, and if you do it can you use
    like not the cords you always use so it will be more of a chellenge for me
    and thank you!! Hope you do it for me

  2. Thank u Matt for this beautiful lesson. One question:- How do I play with
    the guitar pick? I begin playing with the pick and then I have to put it
    aside because it moves from my finger and falls inside the guitar lol. No
    matter how tight i hold it between my fingers, it slips off. I am more
    comfortable using my fingers but with the pick, the music is much louder.
    Can I get a tip on that? Thanks for ur time in advance

  3. Hey Matt, I’ll be 52 this month. Two years ago I gave my life to Jesus. So
    far it’s been a heck of a journey. I also started playing the guitar
    shortly afterwards because I want to be able to praise God with with the
    gifts he’s given me. Although you may not have your doctorate in music
    theory, your straight forward, honest and sincere approach to helping
    others both with music and a relationship with Christ is a blessing to
    many. May God’s grace and favour be on you always. Andy

    hey Andy, that’s awesome! thanks for the encouraging feedback! Congrats
    mostly on giving your life to Jesus. It’s the best decision you could ever
    make. Just knowing he’s there no matter what you go through gives a feeling
    of peace and joy like nothing else. Good luck with you worshiping with the
    guitar! you ought to try the piano too! i’m sure you could learn it in no

  5. :/ Here we go again! I only just get to a public school to get away from
    this… Cathiolic schools just brain-wash you… I WAS VERY LUCKY! … Not
    bagging you’re religion… everyone has thier own opinion 🙂

    a gift keep on teaching others playing and singing easier not to struggle

  8. You sir, are awesome. I recently found an interest in guitar, and I’ve been
    trying to learn. But, I got pretty discouraged the other day when I
    realized how hard it was to play and sing at the same time. But your video
    just gave me newfound motivation. Thanks for making it, it really helped.
    Praise the Lord for your talent. I pray He truly blesses you.

    comment of the day there! haha thanks so much for the encouraging words.
    I’m glad I am able to help. I’m not too advanced myself so that’s how i can
    teach the beginner stuff. We’re all just worshiping together the best we
    can! Praise the Lord!

  10. I agree with the other ppl in here that you have a VERY BEAUTIFUL guitar!
    Sounds really awesome with that guitar and the neck is pretty small so it’s
    really good for a beginner like me! 🙂

  11. Thanks for doing these videos they are very helpful. I can sing and play
    the songs I have on an guitar app. I just can’t get the strumming down and
    my timing. Otherwise I am learning new chords and techniques to improve
    greatly appreciated if you can help. Thanks
