Laravel - Call to undefined method Illuminate\Database\Query\Builder::user()

I am busy with Laravel From Scratch: Updating Records and Eager Loading. I have followed the tut but I am getting this error when trying to add user data in CardsController. I am assuming that I've missed a step in the card user relationship somewhere but I've watched the video 3 times and my database queries for User, Card & Note matches the video exactly.

Is there another step I need to perform after creating the Users table via the migration perhaps?


BadMethodCallException in Builder.php line 2345:

Call to undefined method Illuminate\Database\Query\Builder::user()

CardsController code

namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use App\Card;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Http\Controllers\Controller;

class CardsController extends Controller
public function index()
$cards = Card::all();
return view('cards.index', compact('cards'));

public function show(Card $card)
$card = Card::with('notes.user')->get();
return $card;
return view('', compact('card'));


Your note model is lacking the relationship definition for it's associated user, it looks like.

You should just be able to add the relationship in the Notes model like this:

public function user()
    return $this->belongsTo(User::class);
