They are a real pleasure and it's great to get more out of my guitar with your help.
Looking forward to playing the Blues

Hello Mr. Severson, I stumbled across your site quite by accident (youtube) and was pleasantly surprised by the level of your playing (I was expecting something cheesy). You're the "Real Deal!"
Anyhow, bravo, and thank you for your sight, something guys like me can use to help us advance. Your arrangements are beautiful yet challenging and give me something to strive toward.
I'll be back (I get paid Thursday). I spent $24 last night.
Thank you

I just wanted to say thanks for the fantastic lessons. I have been practicing chord licks and green dolphin street. I have learned more from these in the last couple of weeks than any other books or dvd's that I have tried. Your style is so relaxed and encouraging and you simplify concepts that I have struggled to get my head and ears around just by showing how it's done. I am very grateful for this and so glad that you decided to share your knowledge in such an accessible way. It's a real pleasure to watch and listen to you explain what's going on.

Sincere thanks and best wishes Rich.

Just a quick mail to thank you for your free lesson, the way you look tonight, I have played the guitar for about 50 years, Rhythm, lead etc, but I have always fancied Jazz, but never got round to it, your lesson is brilliant and very helpful even to an experienced player like me, I will certainly buy some more from you, although it may be a couple of weeks, there are some chords in this one, lol. Thanks again and good luck with your business, I have given your website to quite a quite a few work colleagues all musicians.

I must commend you on your lessons. I am a retired schoolteacher and I always made sure that I presented my lessons in as clear a manner as possible, which is exactly what you do here.
I just received your lesson on the substitutes used on One Note Samba. I learned more from this video than I ever did paying $50 for personal guitar lessons for years.

A couple of months ago, while looking for something on youtube, I stumbled upon you and your lessons. I went to you website, and bought a lesson on Green Dolphin Street. After that I bought your diminished scale and Jazz 101 lessons. I was wondering if you also sell DVDs of the lessons. I like being able to download them from the links, but I would like to have hard copies (actual DVDs) just in case someday the links no longer work.

I have been playing for 40+ years. Now at age 62, I finally have a bit more time to devote to studying and practicing. I gig every weekend, but I am still a neophyte when it comes to jazz soloing. My goal has always been to integrate jazz type solos into my rock/blues playing. I love the fact that your lessons are written in musical notation. I think that it is important for guitar players to learn how to read music - I am trying. Your teaching style is superb. I have watched countless instructional videos over the years. Like you, many of the players are terrific. Unlike you, they do not have the ability to actually teach the material effectively. I may never master the material that you teach at the level that I would love to, but I certainly wil die trying to do so.

If you can recommend some of your lessons that I should pursue initially, I would appreciate that. Finally, I noticed that you sometimes do workshops. Is there a way that I can find out about the workshops?

Thanks again for being such a great teacher!

I recently discovered your 99cent lessons and am really enjoying your Autumn Leaves videos. I have been a guitar student for many years (with and without teachers) and really appreciate your very practical and musical chord comping and chord melody arrangements. I'm looking forward to working through the other videos I purchased. Your videos are just what I needed to make noticeable progress. Thanks for a great resource.
