I've got a BIG birthday coming up soon, one I never really thought I'd celebrate ... but here I still am, and still a kid at heart. Playing guitar keeps you young, as it all turns out. 

Here's a quick lesson for you: Happy Birthday in dropped D. You can play for me on the 18th, and play for your loved ones from here on out. It's a piece of cake. 

Happy Birthday to me!

I call it The Easiest Yet Most Powerful Guitar Lesson You Will Ever Learn and many testimonials at my site will back up that rather superlative description. If your goal as a guitar player is to be able to truly PLAY the guitar, not just learn by rote; to be able to invent on the fly, not memorize every note; to be able to see the WHOLE fretboard as friendly, familiar territory, not just the first 5 frets and to do it all without thinking about all those scales and modes, then you should read more here.
