    I sat and watched your “update” video this morning after seeing it on Facebook & I wanted to say that this is why you are my favorite guitar teacher. You obviously have an undying passion for teaching.

    I’ve been away from here (and guitar) for a while because, at the age of 51, I finally took the plunge and bought a house. Pretty much every moment away from work has been consumed by packing, moving furniture, painting the rental I’ve lived in for 7 years… the new house was one bedroom short for my family of five, so I had to build a wall to create a room. Crazy busy.

    Last weekend I needed a break, so I pulled out the laptop and worked on a set of rockabilly guitar lessons I’ve been meaning to get to for a couple of years. It was the relaxing break I needed. It’s funny that since I’ve been in this new house, I wake up at 4 AM every day. Don’t have to get ready for work until 6, so I’ve been taking the quiet time to play guitar or practice lessons. It’s actually done wonders for my mental health.

    This weekend is a 3 day affair due to Veterans day, so I decided that it’s time to get out the MM videos and brush up on so much of what I’ve forgotten.

    Thank you for all of the lessons over the years, Doug.

    Keep up the good work.

    He has to keep up the good work because some fans won’t let him rest 😀

    I'm an intermediate student of Metal Method. I play seitannic heavy metal. All Kale Seitan! The glutens will be eaten with relish!
    And on the Seventh Day, Mustaine said: ∇ ⨯ E = - ∂B / ∂t ; and there was Thrash; and it had a ♭3; and it was good.

    Congrats on the house man. What you said is probably the reason why everyone loves Doug, that and he’s not just some guy doing something only for the money haha.

    Bring hair metal back!

    Buying a house is life changing.  In my case it has been the best financial investment that I’ve ever made.  Bought this house twenty years ago and the value has tripled.

    Glad to hear that you’re finding time to practice again.  I usually wake up at about 3:00 a.m. for a couple of hours then go back to sleep.  I’ve been thinking about working on one of my guitar projects at that time.  Trick is to find something that’s somewhat boring so I can get back to sleep.  The problem I have is, my mind gets active then there’s no way to fall back to sleep again.
