Beginner Blues Riffs – Related Lessons
After finding your site I’ve improved more in the past 3 weeks than I have in 20+ years. Colin makes it so easy to get me to wrap my head around these theory concepts. I’ve only known bits and pieces of the puzzle for too many years but thanks to Colin he’s helping me fill in the gaps.
It’s brought back the joy to playing the guitar.
Tonight my son and I just had a fantastic free jam session for hours where I just went nuts applying everything I’ve learned in these lessons. Where are you guys located? I’d love to have some one-on-one instruction with Colin. Great stuff guys!!
Colin, I’ve worked through all of your lessons to this point, and am looking forward to everything that follows. I really appreciate your teaching style, and I have already learned a great deal. (I used to play a bit of guitar as a teenager, and have now returned after a bit of a break – about 35 years!). What I particularly value is the balance of theory and demonstration, this is working really well for me. Many thanks.
Bag of Tricks & the Ultimate Blues Stage 2 Scales lesson has helped me a lot to improve my guitar skills.
I was a member of church band but I stopped. A few months ago I started playing again at our church.
I have basic knowledge of scales but it’s not that good yet. I wanted to improve it. When I came across your video online I am impressed the way you play and teach. Since then I always watch your videos and learn from it.
Now I play much better and my fingers are much faster. Thanks from David Martinez
This was rather enlightening. Can’t wait to practice and learn more. 🙂
This course is very good !!!
Thanks Colin. Your teaching method is helping me expand and understand underlying principles of guitar and music.
It’s more fun when you see a glimpse of how things fit together and techniques can be applied in more than one way.
While I have much experience with G, Em, Am, C, and D… I’m very pleased to add Bm to my cache. Thank you, I really enjoyed this. Hoping to learn more than ever from you guys. I also really enjoy your online videos’ approach.
I recently purchased the Rhythm Guitar course, and have found it to be very helpful. My timing has improved greatly. and I’m finding it much easier to pick out the rhythm in songs.
For anyone wanting a solid base for strumming, this is a good purchase.
Hey Colin, I’m 65 and have been trying to learn to play the guitar since the late 60’s and stopped progressing after a few years. I just bought an Epiphone electric and watched a brief lesson on the Gibson website, by Arlen Roth, on scales.
Watching your lesson today during my free trial, has convinced me that you’ll be able to do more for me, and the brief look already has, in terms of getting where I’ve been trying to go for all these years. I’m only interested in playing for myself mainly, a bit old to be a rock star, but maybe I could impress my friends. Thanks.
I have been impressed! I knew you were the “one” I could learn from when you started off explaining the guitar was a “minor” instrument. First person who made that point to me was my son Lee who is the top jazz guitarist in the Charleston, SC market. You got instant credibility!
The Ultimate Blues course! What can I say… I am only part way through and I understand musical theory to a small degree.
This course is truly informative. Colin knows what he is talking about and just as importantly he understands what it’s like to be a student so he speaks “our” language.
Buy this course with confidence and without doubt you will become a more accomplished and confident guitar player.
Thanks so very much Colin.
Hi Colin, I’m 69 and been trying to learn guitar for years, and I came here pretty much as a last stop shop. I’ve had quite a few lessons, but they all seem to want to show me how to play a song, not play the guitar.
I practiced this lesson for a while, without quite knowing why. Then I had a “light bulb” moment – I suddenly understood where I was on the fretboard, and why, and where to go next.
Still can’t actually play much, but that’s a work in progress…… I am much encouraged. Thank you.
I have learned more than I can believe doing your courses.There is a ton of work to get through and the mistake I have made is not persevering with the course layout when I joined up. I have bought a few of your other courses and started hopping around, don’t get me wrong I have learned so much.
I played along with the jam tracks on improvising lesson for the first time this week and I was surprised at my ability to play along this has only being achievable by watching your lessons and practice. The hardest part is doing it and trying to stick it out. I am improving every day and love the ultimate blues course. Thanks guys
Uncle Bob wants to hear more… The Rhythms and Riffs of Early Rock and Roll is the best lesson I have ever had.
It hits me just were I am in my guitar journey and is exactly why I took up guitar in the first place.
I have no desire to start a band or play to anyone but friends and family. The lesson was at just the right pace and detail and made it easy and fun.
REALLY HOPE MORE LESSONS LIKE THIS ARE COMING IN THE FUTURE!!!!!
Hi Colin, I have gone through the Essentials of Strumming & Rhythm Guitar course, and I’m very pleased with my progress.
Even though I can play the guitar it gave me different ideas of how to plan out for different songs.
Congratulations on putting together a very good course.
Hello Colin just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your instruction and strumming course. I am not a professional musician but I love the guitar and will always play and learn. I am only about 4 years in, and I play or practice at some point usually every day.
I have purchased some very expensive courses to help me along, and they have for sure, because I want to understand guitar not just make it talk. Your course is inexpensive and fantastic quality.
Players think a lot about their fret hand but neglect the star hand or rhythm hand. I have learned you can know all the chords, runs, riffs and tabs but are very limited without your partner Mr. Rhythm Hand. My point being if you want to expand your knowledge even if it is one little “ah-ha” this product is well worth it. Thanks again Colin! Folk I am a real person who just loves to make my kids smile and guitars talk.
I have always struggled with the scales & have always wanted to play lead & solos. I have some of your lessons now & can definitely see a difference. I am definitely having more fun doing it now. I was pretty discouraged before for quite awhile. I am doing much better now thanks to your great lessons.
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’ve been muddling around the guitar for quite a number of years. I spent enough time muddling and self teaching that I developed some good chops, techniques, some loose theory and the ability to ‘mimic’ accurately.
While my playing may have sounded good, I wasn’t going where I wanted to be… a real guitarist/musician (even if not on a professional level). I have found no course of instruction, written or in person that puts the aspects of theory and application together the way that Colin has been able to do.
From the lessons in the Academy to the premium courses, like the kick butt Ultimate Blues Chords course, everything lesson has applicable value. I recommend RiffNinja.com to any person I know interested in picking up a guitar!
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.
