    I just came across this video today and thought I’d like to share it here and find out what other great resources you folks use for learning licks, improving your musicianship and upgrading your playing?

    Several lessons to be learned from that video.

    I particularly like this video about changing the oil & filter on an outboard motor.

    I don't have a boat, but I've watched this a few times just in case.

    I've been working on lessons that have been shared on this forum of Eldon Shamblin's arrangements of "Faded Love" and "Ida Red". Lots of 'new to me' chord shapes I don't reach for.

    I also found Whit Smith's lesson on western swing chord grips and voice leading really good. Again, lots of 'new to me' shapes I don't reach for:

    Pouring the oil into the motor looked pretty tricky. I had to rewind that several times!

    I've spent a lot of time on scale patterns and practicing pentatonics in my learning. I know how to harmonize the major scale, but I haven't spent any time working out chord patterns. I've always figured they were there, but I just never spent any time working them out. In my opinion, much of intermediate guitar playing, for players who've chosen a music theory learning route, is about developing skills to work out or recognize patterns on the neck. Anyway, this lesson opened my eyes to chord patterns that I should have seen ages ago. Recognizing these patterns will simplify so much for me.

    The Fender Play lessons are interesting. While they're mostly beginner oriented and sales pitches for Fender Play they aren't bad.

    Yeah stitch is really good. I think a lot of us are in that same boat where we spent way too much time learning the "cool" stuff, the licks and riffs and some scales etc, where we really should have been getting those chords down pat right from day one

    I've focused my chord learning mostly through the songs I learn. If I have to use a certain movable chord shape or chord in a song, then I learn it. Unfortunately, that has meant that I haven't spent as much time learning to recognize chord patterns along the neck. That's one of the reasons Stitch's lesson was helpful. It got me thinking about harmonized scales along the guitar neck.

    Anyway, I've also spent a lot of time on major/minor pentatonic scales. They seem deceptively easy at first, but learning them from any root note on any fret and linking them together in any direction up and down the fretboard takes time and practice. That's another reason why my chord awareness has suffered. It's all good though because I'm getting a lot out of the pentatonics and scale playing in general.

    By the way, I would also include Andrew Wasson of Creative Guitar Studio in any list of online lessons. He has some good content. Unfortunately, he throws up a pitch for his book (which I'm sure is great) right in the middle of a lesson. I really hate that. Put the book pitch at the start or the end or both, but don't interrupt the learning process with a pitch. I stopped watching his vids because of that.

    I wish this guy was around when I was getting started. He would have saved me hundreds of hours of piecing this stuff together.

    His AW course is really solid too. Been at it off and on for about 9 months, it's been incredibly helpful

    Not necessarily these specific lessons, but these are the guys who I try to check in with regularly
