Detectorists – Johnny Flynn – Guitar Lesson (SL23)


  1. Gregory Gibbons

    I want to learn this song. I'm an amateur, no real talent. But beyond the technical difficulties of mastering such a song on the guitar, I can't help but get choked up at the vocals when we get to the "I'm waiting for you". I don't have any real questions. I was just wondering if I'm alone in this? By the way, well done. Inspirational.

    Hi Ben this is really great. Thank you very much for taking the time to make this video. I'm trying to work through and tab out the song but I'm getting a bit unstuck on the part where you add in the hammer ons over the A chord. Can you write these out or point me in the direction of where to find them please? Thanks again (hope Japans working out for you)

    Great lesson, thank you. Just a little pointer; the lyrics, which almost everyone gets wrong, are actually, “loamy earth” not, “lonely earth”. It’s much more beautiful when sung correctly.

    Hi Ben, Thanks for the video! I've been struggling with this one for a while, your video made it really easy to tab out so hopefully i'll be playing it in no time! Thanks again! Neil

    Thank you, Ben, as John said, your tutorial is much clearer than the others, and you have taken the time to show the picking patterns in detail for us less experienced folks; absolutely brilliant, as this is the aspect that I was really struggling with, and was impossible for me to work out from the other two tutorials. Thank you again, Ben, for your patience in going through the whole of this song and breaking it down into easily digestible sections. Greatly appreciated.

    Nice one Ben, I was looking at the other tutorials on this beautiful song and this one is much clearer for me. 👍
