I loved the rhythm ‘n riffs course and would love to get the tabs or a quick video lesson on the riff u use at the home screen of DVD 2. It’s really catchy. I am also waiting to get stage 3 of your blues course. Thanks
I’m loving it…
Man I can’t believe I wasted so much time roaming around those stupid free videos on u-tube trying to learn something for free and not looking you up and paying such a cheap price to learn such valuable information.
It’s really priceless…
This was a very good lesson Colin. I’ve struggled with chords and chord changes ever since I first started. It’s been 3 years and that’s very unfortunate because if I had a lesson like this from the get go I’d be much further along. The other side of the coin is I’ve appreciated this lesson much more because of my challenges. I struggled because my teacher and one or two other people told me that it was just something I had to work out for myself. So, I learned by going out on you tube and reading various other materials, but this lesson pulled it all together for me. So I can tell you folks that by me having to take a long road around learning to play chords and chord changes that this lesson is a good one.
I enjoyed the course, how it shows different strumming and rhythm patterns. In that case I have improved. Although I still struggle with how to count out the tempo and which strum pattern should be used. Maybe this will come with time, or you can go more into depth on these subjects. Not all songs I struggle with, I think its more the tempo thing than anything else. All in all its been a good experience thxs, Mike
Thanks for all the great lessons. I’m enjoying the course and learning lots. Very effective and encouraging teaching style, much appreciated.
I purchased this course a few years ago and since then have still been learning basics in all other areas, (and other Riff Ninja lessons) especially chord shape/muscle memory.
Well I recently purchased a guitar that I feel is more noteworthy for playing than any of the others in my collection. I also just got quite interested in the music by Neil Young since he plays Harmonica with some of his songs. While strumming along to the song with my new ‘Taylor 314-EC’ (Thank You very much) I referred back to this strumming course in which Colin included the pattern for ‘Heart Of Gold’ . . . I would like to say ‘Kudos’ to Colin.
The pattern was on the money and quite a good experience to able to play along with the song in such a competent manner. It felt great!
The best part of all is that I believe my beautiful sweet girl was also listening in on me while I was playing 🙂
Keep up the good work in providing the RiffNinja lessons. They are much appreciated!
Hi Colin. Couldn’t be happier with the Riff Ninja Academy lessons. Have made it deep into Section III and learned so much… SO much more to go.
You are an amazing teacher and I drop Jonathan a line ever so often about a question I have on one of the videos. A really thorough and informative course, probably the best one I have ever undertaken. You are so smooth on guitar. It’s a joy to watch you play and instruct.
Your Strum Patterns Are Terrific
I had given up my thought of ever learning to play, but kept talking about it. I am 78 years old, a retired teacher and I really wanted to play. Just for my own enjoyment.
Your course was a gift from my wife and I am really having a very good time with it. My sore fingers are testimony to my hours of practice but I am making progress. Slow, but steady!
I will let you know as I go along.
I am a 52 year old guitar nut that really just plucked around for years. I recently picked up a Les Paul Epiphone and got serious. Practice hours everyday and struggled a bit until I saw your videos on u tube. Man it just clicked, your methods and attitude I really like. Thanks for the inspiration and tips. God speed my friend.
I bought the Slide Guitar Essentials course. I am very pleased with the explanations and all the theory parts. It is so great to know the “why” we play what we do!
Thanks for all your hard work.
I am 55 years old, and started playing guitars 5 years ago. My first instructor told me he was going to give me some theory, and I balked: Don’t give me theory! Show me how to play this thing!
Looking back, I realize how naive I was. I am so far ahead of the guy who first showed me how to play my first chord five years ago, because I have taken the time to learn some theory. Colin Daniel is my fourth internet instructor, and I would have to say the best. Plus, he’s Canadian like me! Go BC!
I have to take a bow to Marty Schwartz and Justin Sandercoe, I’ve learned tons from them, but Colin knows how to drill right down to what’s important, with by far the best video production quality I’ve seen, and an absolutely superb course book, Colin is a total perfectionist with this course. My theory knowledge is really starting to crystallize now; if only my clumsy fingers could keep up with my understanding! Great work.
I really like the information on the use of passing notes. Adds a lot to whatever you’re playing. Thanks Colin.
Colin, You’re a special teacher. Your freebies convinced me to purchase “Essentials of Strumming.” I’m now anxious to practice.
Thanks Colin. I really learned a lot from this and the previous lesson. I’ve never concentrated on strumming patterns before, so I am excited to get started practicing these patterns. Thanks again for the great lesson.
Colin, I purchased my membership right at a year ago and I’ve never continued to practice consistent at all. I have so many guitar programs where I have spent thousands, now they are all collecting dust. Still after years I’m an advanced beginner.
Well! I never really used your program because I thought you talked to much in the lessons. LOL…
But I would look and skip around with the different programs I have and realized I was always coming back to your members site to find what I needed.
It’s amazing how good I would be if only I had stayed focused and followed your program for the last year.
Colin you are an amazing guitar player and watching you shows all the hard work you have sacrificed over many years. I find myself wanting to practice more everyday, because you inspire me so much.
Thank you so much, Alan
It’s been a year +1 day since I signed up for a lifetime membership. You guys are great. I’m now at the point where I browse a topic based on what I am doing – select it – and enjoy. I always learn something and appreciate how theory and practice work together. Thanks.
The Ultimate Blues course doesn’t just put the Blues together, but the whole fretboard and great theory together… all while focusing on Blues application. Just spectacular like all of Colin’s lessons! I always learn something new and useful. PICK UP the ULTIMATE BLUES COURSE!!
You know when I first opened the Blues R&R course, after the first lesson I thought yep okay, but tell me something new. However, having progressed through the rest I quickly realized how much I did not know!
In short, a great course for anyone who thinks they know it or even those who do know it and want to refresh their memory adding more spice to their playing. There are a lot of useful tips and different angles to approach and improve anyone’s guitar playing.
Well done sir, good job.
