Learning it now

JWEjamJWEjam replied

Jim, I see you play the Martin in many of your lessons. It appears to be the model that was given away on LiveJam. Do you have an opinion on if there are any major quality differences between that model Martin makes at their factory in Pennsylvania vs that model they make in Mexico? There is a $300 difference in price.

cutchincutchin replied

Can anyone please tell me any advantage of using Guitar Pro 6 over the built-in Jamplay interactive tab feature? I have GP6 but It seems the me that the built-in one is adequate. Is there an advantage that perhaps I'm over looking? Thanks

cutchincutchin replied

Will my pinky ever stop hurting from doing the bend and slide on the 2nd and 1st strings! What a killer!!

Horace LysaghtHorace Lysaght replied

Jim, You play the G7 without a slide to e6with pinky on [email protected] which I prefer to your tabs. Any help

dougholderdougholder replied

Fantastic!! Thank you Jim.All I've got to do now is practice and smooth it out. Excellent teaching. I know it sounds like "What have you done for me lately", but any chance you could break down "Classical Gas"?

hummonkeyhummonkey replied

Thanks Jim. Learning to play for my stint at Fur Peace Ranch.

Man what's wrong with you? That is GREAT teaching from a GREAT teacher.

The Ventures had a neat version "way back when". I was in a great little band then and our lead guitar player did a great job with it. Jim, would sure like to hear a version (your's) of "Never goin back again" back L. Buckingham of Fleetwood MAC...Great Travis picking tune.

SodaPopSodaPop replied

tough atm but worth working for

jtanen2jtanen2 replied

Bars 37-40 are tough. The G7 does not match the tabs or notes. I can read music and prefer it to tabs but this does not make sense to me.

tonigreertonigreer replied

I got most of it but cant get the part with the A slide to Am. I have spent so much time trying to get it. Love this song and Im determined. I think it is just the timing Im not getting. Where can I go to "get " this part? What is guitar pro will it help?

joeyoungjoeyoung replied

I have been able to follow you through the whole song until you get to the G part of the song and then you dont explain what you are doing with either hand and I cant follow the tab at all here.

the guitar pro file dose not open

paulyjpaulyj replied

great song and a great lesson,i would also love to learn yakety axe if you could do that many thanks.

aquiguillermoaquiguillermo replied

Gee... almost done. Boy ...quite a challenge. Worth it for sure!!! Great lesson indeed!! Thanks a lot. Gracias desde aquĆ­.

theleesthelees replied

Parden the typo...knew should have been 'NEW'....

theleesthelees replied

Enjoying the challenge but on measures 37 and 38 I changed the G7 to a standard 1st position G and changed meadures 39 and 40 from a C7 to a 1st position C9...It did alter the sound some but it is the only way I could play those measures and i have been working for several weeks on the tune...Of course I am knew at finger style.

GlenBGlenB replied

JIm - did you really say that when you move an Am shape up two frets you don't know what chord that is?

smokinjazzsmokinjazz replied

I thought that was odd also

GREAT SONG! all you people who can't get it on the 1st try, KEEP PRACTICING! i got it within 24 hrs

anfrgltanfrglt replied

Good teacher and amazing guitar player but the videos can be hard to follow and very time consuming; that's why I revert to tabs but ONLY to find out that they are different than the videos NOW that is very frustrating. NOT a problem if you are seasoned player but they don't subscribe to Jam play or the likes.

siegbsiegb replied

Good choice and well done. This is one of the finest finger picking songs ever. Also, Tommy Emmanuel does a great version of the song.

smb8453smb8453 replied

A little bit frustrating. I love the way you play it though. The first part and main theme of the song came pretty easy as you go tru it slowly. But about part c I had to go to the tabs and they don't really match what you are doing correctly and you just kinda play thru it quickly. This is a little frustrating to me and I have been playing for awhile. I think you are a very good teacher but this could be greatly improved by slowing down and explaining the later parts or creating accurate tabs.

aldraperaldraper replied

Good Day Jim Just working on this song. Having some trouble with bars 53 thru 62. They seem to be different than your video. Can you offer any help. Thanks !

Wen trying to print the lesson for"Windy and Warm" the lesson does not print, as I only get a title play? What am I doing wrong?

jkpricejkprice replied

thanx for lesson jim. picked this up pretty quick. can you play classical gas? i play a pretty good version..would like to a better one.. thanx

dash rendardash rendar replied

I'm getting the hang of this, but the pinky bend is shredding my finger! I'm not used to bending with the pinky!

nbdceznbdcez replied

Can someone help me with the 27th measure. The F chord. What is the right hand picking pattern. The TAB seems to have it wrong.

mloydpmloydp replied

I'm having a little trouble with the G an C parts of Windy and Warm , a closeup of the right hand would be a great help here, the way it is now I'm having problems seeing which strings and at what time you pluck. Any suggestions?

ajgreeajgree replied

Thank you for teaching and showing so clearly. I am new to jamplay and am learning at a better clip and with less frustration than I had previously. Since I don't truly have direct contact, i felt the feedback to be important. Thanks again for your effort to teach.

randy862randy862 replied

Arrrgh! I hate it when the tabs don't match the video!!!

sean.egansean.egan replied

This is a frustrating lesson. There's no way to slow down the video to see what the right hand is doing. At times, Jim's thumb appears to "cheat" and hit the G string during the melody.

akman1akman1 replied

This was a fun song to learn. It took me a good month to get it down but your instruction was excellent. The hardest part for me was the decending base line while playing melody. Once I got it though, it was fun to add some of Tommy Emmanuel's personality to it that I picked up by watching your interview with him. He really adds a different dynamic to the tune.

floorshakerfloorshaker replied

Hi Jim. Thanks for the clear concise instruction on this one. I know this is easy for some but it is very difficult for me and I am not wasting my time watching YouTube or reading tablature but trying to play it as YOU play it, which I think is great! I also sometimes close my eyes to try and `feel' the song and I am amazed how well I can still play. Still early days but after the Phase 2 lessons I feel confident that one day it will sound something like what you are playing, lol. Keep up the great lessons. Chris

mocoffeemocoffee replied

Great song. I too will take a bit to get through the whole thing. The toughtest part thus far is bending the "D" note with my pinky. I just can't see to get it to ring out and moan like Jim. Any thoughts or tips would be appreciated.

andrewlohandrewloh replied

I did it by bending downward instead of up. Try it, its much easier.

Jim.DeemingJim.Deeming replied

That's a great question. If you watch my left hand and forearm during the bend, you can notice I am getting some assistance from a slight rotation of the hand and arm. The pinkie isn't doing it all by itself. Experiment with that and see what happens. Hold your Am chord, fret the pinkie note, and then rotate your hand a bit in the direction that will give your pinkie a little shove upward - without sacrificing the other three notes in the chord.

luvmyyairiluvmyyairi replied

My friend told me about jam play and he was learning this song and I loved it. So I had to join to see if I could learn this song too. It's quite different from what I usually play and a challenge. I'm coming along with it and it's sooooo fun! Thanks....It will take me a while longer though...Great music

scoffeyscoffey replied

Hey Jim, You are an amazing player, and thank you for being a teacher on here. I'm trying to learn this song, and I was a little confused around measure 21 - 23. On the video you play it differently. The music shows holding the b, g, and d strings on the 5th fret, but it doesn't look like you're playing that way? Is the tab wrong? I'm happy how you're playing it, so which strings are you playing and at which fret on that section?

jaybirdjaybird replied

great song but I noticed a difference in the "C" section. You play the G7, C7, and Dm differently then what is in the tab. It may not be important but I am wrong? Thanks

andylipscombandylipscomb replied

Yeah, measures 37-42 in the tab are a train wreck compared to what Jim's doing on the video. I think the tab approximates what Chet Atkins usually plays, whil Jim is presenting a somewhat dumbed-down version in the video. You can see a lot of versions on You Tube (just search for "Windy and Warm") including John Loudermilk (who plays it differently from both Chet and Jim). Check out Sarah Lewis--"This Chick can Pick"--if you really want to be humbled.

andylipscombandylipscomb replied

The A major part at the end (measures 53-56) has similar issues. Maybe just me, but I can't get the tab version to sound very good. I think you need to just watch the video for this.

ripper123ripper123 replied

What a coincidence that you mention this. I've just started to learn the "C" section and I think the tablature is indeed a little out of synch with the video. I'm not sure if it matches the notation. I'm picking it out by ear, but it's a little slow going. Help!

jessehjesseh replied

This song is awsome will take me a while to get it though

SylviaSylvia replied

Windy and warm.... isn't that what happens when you eat too many beans???

how many practice runs did that take??? ha its cool though u looked liike u enjoyed it no doubt

Brilliant. Your sense of fun and enjoyment is contagious. I love your lessons. Keep it going and keep her laughing.

mr mikemr mike replied

I learned about 1/2 of windy & warm in the 60's when Chet did it. Thanks for teaching me the right way to play the whole thing. Chet also made another song around that time "cloudy & cool", How about doing that one? Thanks

gijoelergijoeler replied

Great song, thanks Jim!

mjmacklinmjmacklin replied

this is a great tune that Ive been wanting to learn for a long time. Have printed out other tab but got bogged down in trying to learn all the notes. What I did here is just watch the basic chord shapes and just listen for the scale tones that he puts in. I for once had fun learning it and didn't worry about the alternating bass to make the song sound polished. Great Job Jim! PS. I do recommend for those younger than myself though to get a good foundation in alternating their bass lines. Well taught Jim.

eddiegilliseddiegillis replied

Absolutely brilliant tune and superb instruction. (I still find it hard to keep the bass going regularly when the melody gets complicated though). I guess its only practice that will correct that! Any chance Jim could teach us through Tommy Emmanuel's Angelina - that would be brilliant.

mr_lawmr_law replied

Oh yeah I send that to angelina!!!

mr_lawmr_law replied

This song is so mad to play. It's a bit of a challenge to learn because I've never played quite like this before. Keep the Chet Atkins songs coming.

Jim Deeming

About Jim Deeming View Full Biography Jim Deeming got his first guitar when he was only six years old. His Dad was taking fingerpicking lessons, and Jim wanted to be just like him. The Mel Bay books didn't last very long before he strapped on a thumb pick and added the Chet part to Red River Valley so it sounded better.

Most of Jim's early learning was by ear. With unlimited access to his Dad's collection of Chet Atkins albums, he spent countless hours decoding his favorite songs. They were never "right" until they sounded just like Chet. Around the age of 12, Jim heard Jerry Reed for the first time and just knew he had to be able to make that "Alabama Wild Man" sound. The styles of Chet & Jerry always have been a big influence on his playing.

More recently he has pursued arrangements by Tommy Emmanuel and Doyle Dykes, in addition to creating some of his own and writing originals.

Jim has performed in front of a variety of audiences, including concerts, competitions, weddings and the like, but playing at church has always been a mainstay. Whether playing in worship bands or guitar solos, gospel music is deep in his roots and is also the driving theme behind his debut CD release, titled "First Fruits".

Jim has been playing for about 38 years. He also has taught private lessons in the past but believes is an exciting and better venue with many advantages over the traditional method of weekly 30 minute sessions.

Jim lives in Berthoud, Colorado with his wife, Linda, and their four children. Although he still has a "day job", he is actively performing and is already back in the studio working on the next CD. If you wonder how he finds time, look no further than the back seat of his truck where he keeps a "travel guitar" to take advantage of any practice or song-writing opportunities he can get.

The opening song you hear in Jim's introductory JamPlay video is called, "A Pick In My Pocket". It's an original tune, written in memory of Jim's father who told him early on he should always keep a pick in his pocket in case he ever met Chet Atkins and got the chance to play for him. That song is slated to be the title track for his next CD, which will feature several more originals plus some of his favorite covers of Chet and Jerry arrangements.

"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!

Greg J.

"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
