Matthew... These are some of the best instructional videos ever posted here. Thanks very much!

I really hope I can make it to your CG Weekend one of these years.

That would be very useful to me as well.

I agree with Erik's idea - and maybe some insight into what a usual (if such exists) practice day for you looks like.

Thanks for the ideas and requests! It may take a while but I will put something up about these ideas when I can.

Best wishes,

I happened on this thread as I was searching for the 'barre' video - apparently it was number 6 on the list of videos in the first post. It (and the rest) do not seem to be available anymore. Matthew, if you are able to re-upload 'the barre video, or even just share a short description of what the salient points in it were regarding barre, I would be very grateful.

I can't get the videos to play. He seems to have terminated his youtube account.

Yes, the videos are no longer available. The link by SteveL123 is a list of a lot of different videos, not sure this includes the first 6 or so that Matthew Mc was referencing. Would be great if these videos are reposted.

Yes, however the oldest video there is from Nov 20, 2012 - 5 months after the time the original technique videos were posted to the other , now closed, account. As far as I can see, these videos were not re-uploaded to the newer account.

You can watch Matthew Mcallister's tutorials at SiccasGuitars on YouTube. Go to the video section and scroll down.

The videos Matthew refers to in the OP are just referred to as part1, part2,...etc. There's no indication of what the name of the these videos are so just browsing a long list of videos on YouTube on the SiccasGuitars doesn't help as I do not know which ones are relevant to the original post on this thread. Thanks anyway.

Thanks Erik, I've enjoyed these Youtube classes several times, makes you reflect on your own playing.

I suppose you can confirm that the old "Sicily" classes were pretty much the same?

Thanks for a great forum. :)
