In this video Michael plays a beautiful version of Randy Newman’s song “You’ve Got A Friend In Me” from the movie Toy Story. All of the instruments were played by Michael for the recording, and the video was shot in just one take. This was a lot of fun to make! Many blessings to you and your families!

You’ve got a friend in me. You’ve got a friend in me. When the road looks rough ahead and you’re miles and miles from your nice warm bed, you just remember what your old pal said. Boy you’ve got a friend in me. Yes, you’ve got a friend in me.

You’ve got a friend in me. You’ve got a friend in me. You’ve got troubles, well I got ’em too. There isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you. We stick together and we’ll see it through. You’ve got a friend in me. Yeah you’ve got a friend in me.

If you want to learn the ultimate “guitar secret” here it is…In this FREE guitar lesson you will learn what it really takes to master any guitar lick, or any other lick on any other instrument as a matter of fact.

The secret is found in human anatomy actually.  You have been blessed by God with an amazing gift called “Muscle Memory.”  Muscle Memory can be clearly seen in action if you go to a farm on chicken butchering day.  When a chicken’s head is cut off from its body, the silly little thing jumps up and runs around the yard for a few minutes!  You see, the legs don’t NEED the brain to remember how to run…they REMEMBER for themselves.

Your fingers work the same way.  They literally REMEMBER whatever you program them to remember!  The secret to leveraging this for your “guitar playing” is to play SLOWLY ENOUGH so that you don’t make any little mistakes.  Your fingers remember mistakes if that is  what you spend all your time teaching them!  Practice slow and you will DOMINATE any passage of music you happen upon.

Blessings on you in your guitar playing!
