Paul Davids Talks Chords, Scales, Phrasing & Ideas: What Can We Learn?

Published on 17 Dec 2019

Hello, Dan here!
This video is part of a series I'm doing on some basic guitar theory and practice that will help you become a more rounded and creative guitarist.

Some of them are more discursive than directly practical… like our chat with Paul Davids at Thomann Gear University earlier this year. Paul is FANTASTIC geezer with an incredible YouTube channel. if you haven't already checked him out, please do so!

APOLOGIES for the wandering focus. Auto focus on camera. Rubbish. Sorry!
