Hi Colin, The Ultimate Blues Course: Stage 1 – Chords is amazing & has definitely made me a better player.
I’m an intermediate & kind of stuck. I have some of your other lessons & have benefited from them all. Sometimes not enough time. I play golf, fish, woodwork, & even make guitars but I love playing the guitar. You are a great teacher & your music professor you talked about taught you very well.
About my playing before I got your lesson – I was frustrated, discouraged, stuck but now am kind of re-energized & really want to learn. When can we expect the stage 2-Scales?
It goes without saying that Colin and Jonathan are great instructors. I grab my guitar as time allows (At least 1/2 hour daily but most of the time longer) and I have realized that it takes time as well as understanding. But all the time is good. Knowing the guitar and how to play are more than just hands on which is why I have come to respect ‘Guitar Theory’. The classroom is always needed.
I have purchased Strumming & Improvising lessons from Colin. And the Scales Patterns, I IV V, and Barre Chord lessons from Jonathan. I have been working through them all. I can feel them coming into place (Rome wasn’t built . . .) But I will say that now that I have a better understanding of Strumming, I also have a better understanding of what bars are, 1e+a etc. So now the songs are making more sense. Kinda like a light turning on . . .
I have and will always recommend both Colin and Jonathan’s lesson’s to all who can appreciate clear, step by step lessons, both written and verbal, from those who have clearly shown an appreciation for the instrument. Keep the lessons coming! Thanks to both of you.
Colin, I have learned so much between you and Jonathan, I can’t even begin to say. I haven’t played since I was a kid and I am 59 now. I am having so much fun!
I have been playing guitar for quite a few years now… To begin with I was only interested in playing basic easy songs (getting the point across was how I described my ability), but after a while this wasn’t enough and I wanted to learn more.
A variety of face to face teachers missed the mark as I found that I would spend 30 mins watching them show me how awesome they were or showing me things I wasn’t interested in.
The Ultimate Blues course has been exactly what I needed.
Colin not only shows how to do certain things but also explains “why” and how certain chords or techniques fit into the big picture. I love this approach and it has unleashed a new passion for the guitar in me which I am extremely thankful for! It has also helped my playing improve to the degree that I was recently invited to play for a friends wedding – a solo for her to walk down the aisle!!!
Thank you Colin – keep up the fantastic work!
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.
I am happy with the lessons. I find them really good because you point out the really important thing to focus on when learning how to play Guitar and Bass.
Keep up the good lessons.
I’ve been teaching myself for about three years now just noodling around. I know open chords but didn’t understand where I was, why I was there, where to go next and why. I started read up on music theory was so confused.
This blues course was my revelation moment. I know how to take a note make a scale make a chord scale know were to go for solos now I can watch someone else play know where they are learning new songs by 1-4-5 I’m blown away. Thank you.
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! 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.
You have shot your self in the the foot this time 😉
This course is so complete, I will never have to buy another. There is so much information, theory and knowledge in it, that your teachings can be adapted to any other style of music.
I knew how to play, yet only did what I was shown. I didn’t know why. Now I can break down any song or even write one. Scales?? What was that??….before.
Colin, you are the best teacher I ever had.
I can’t wait for Stages 3 & 4
I just wanted to think you for the excellent Strumming Course.
I have had some problem with understand how to strum, and this a cleared up a lot of my problems.
Awesome rhythm & strumming course! You kept it simple and straight forward with some added touches. Very cool! It truly has helped me as a rhythm guitarist and a solo musician. Your format (the 3 screen) and honest approach really was a great help.
This seasoned guitarist benefited richly – it was worth every penny, but continue to keep them affordably priced. I highly recommend this course for everyone who plays guitar… electric or acoustic. Keep’um coming!! Hey how about a course for modern popular chord progressions – acoustic as well as electric!
Thanks Colin… you rock man!
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
Colin, I’ve been trying to find this course for 30 years, thanks for making it happen. Guitar playing is all about the basics. I finally feel like I know how to strum a guitar.
Thanks again… Tom
Hi Colin, I purchased your Scales course first. I worked my way through it twice. It is fabulous. I’ve had so many sudden moments of sudden realization about scales and how they work. Still working at the scales program and maybe I’ve approached things out of order, but I was so excited about how much I learned that I now have the Chords lesson as well. I’m working slowly and patiently on it.
My knowledge and understanding is beginning to take lead over my ability. At times I feel overwhelmed but your video lessons are reassuring that patience and practice will bring positive results. I really believe that any chord or scale I want to learn will become as familiar to me as any open major chord I’m entirely comfortable with.
Colin you are a fantastic teacher. Your knowledge is superior, your methods and materials are clear and comprehensive. Throughout the rest of my guitar journey I will be ordering all of your lessons.
There’s no doubt that I’m a better player since getting the lesson. There’s a wealth of information there you just can’t get anywhere. I was stuck before & now I have a renewed interest, not to mention this stuff is very, very interesting. I have other lessons from you guys & I love them all. Thanks very much & I truly hope you keep up the good work
I have gone thru the video 2 times and each time I learn so much thanks for your hard work and help. I’m 67 and want to learn everything about the guitar and this course is great thanks Colin.
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 owned a guitar for over 30 yrs. I know a lot of chords, have done some theory, but never really got what it was about.
With Colin, the way he explains 145 really makes you connect, and the old cliché light bulb moment rings true.
Fantastic course – keep on keeping on.
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.
