This was a cool lesson, and Siggi Mertens should keep it up on youtube. Really, a lot of us guitarists play the elements he shows us after the solo, but when he puts it all together, the licks sound great. Also, he is hinting at the fact that guitarists need confidence. Thanks, Siggi.

Siggi. I have long been intimidated by listening to experts and wondered if I would ever be good enough to play on stage. I have only been playing again for 6months after a 20 year break because of that feeling of intimidation. However, watching this has given me renewed hope. If I practice hard and learn the foundations I can build them into my own style. Thank you. You inspired me to go on.

Please do not remove this video ! I'm picking up my guitar again after listening to your advice and watching you play . Thanks Siggi ..
