david.mackenziedavid.mackenzie replied

i would have to agree!!

fourwheelerfourwheeler replied

Why is it that the intro riff starts the riff on the A string, and on page one it starts on the D string? Which is the correct way to start the riff?

DPfentDPfent replied

Same question... After the A power chord, in the demo you start on the second fret A string, but in the tab it is backwards and starts on the d string second fret. It seems the whole tab is backwards. Confused.

vmfa122vmfa122 replied

Is this the same way that JP plays it on the axe or do you not know?

david.mackenziedavid.mackenzie replied

this is extremely close to hoe Priest plays it, although have'nt seen an actual video of them playing it. so your still hitting all the same notes.

spiderluccispiderlucci replied

hey Dave, When you mention to pm the song... do you mean the whole intro or the whole song. thanks! spider

david.mackenziedavid.mackenzie replied

just the intro.

spiderluccispiderlucci replied

I'm assuming you ment only the open strings??? you did say in the video if it doesn't sound right is because you have the A string open not pm. Spider

David MacKenzie

About David MacKenzie View Full Biography Dave MacKenzie has been playing guitar for 30 of his 45 years on this earth. Starting back when he was 14 years old, Dave picked up the guitar and started to learn from his oldest brother, who had played some guitar as well. Dave was hooked, and couldn't learn fast enough! Everything from the Beatles, Chicago, Ted Nugent, The Eagles, you name it, Dave was trying to play it.

Then as with a lot of players out there, Eddie Van Halen came along and changed the way guitar was played! Dave has been influenced by anyone he has heard play guitar, literally! Always keeping an open mind and a humbleness about him has helped him to keep learning new things on, and about the guitar.

Dave has mostly played in top 40 rock, country, and pop bands. He is most recently playing guitar and keyboards in a 80's metal band called Open Fire. They have opened for Warrant, Firehouse, Winger, and LA Guns within the 3 and a half years they have been together, and are now jumping into original music.

Dave believes you should have internal motivation, and passion to play guitar, and most definitely, it should be fun!

As with his playing, Dave will find new ways to show you how to get the most out of your time learning guitar!

"I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar!"
 

I am 66 years young and I still got it! I would have never known this if it had not been for Jamplay! I feel like a 12 year old kid with a new guitar! Ha! I cannot express enough how great you're website is! It is for beginners and advanced pickers! I am an advanced picker and thought I had lost it but thanks to you all, I found it again! Even though I only play by ear, I have been a member a whopping whole two weeks now and have already got Brent's country shuffle and country blues down and of course with embellishments. Thank you all for your wonderful program!

"With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace"
 

I'm a fifty eight year old newbie who owns a guitar which has been sitting untouched in a corner for about seven years now. Last weekend I got inspired to pick it up and finally learn how to play after watching an amazing Spanish guitarist on TV. So, here I am. I'm starting at the beginning with Steve Eulberg and I couldn't be happier (except for the sore fingers :) Some day I'm going to play like Steve! I'm self employed with a hectic schedule. With Jamplay I can fit in a random session when I have time and I can go at my own pace, rewinding and replaying the videos until I get it. This is a very enjoyable diversion from my work yet I still feel like I'm accomplishing something worthwhile. Thanks a lot, Greg
