Bought "Willow Weep for Me". This is the kind of song that fits so well as a chord melody. I really like your "bluesy" arrangement which is a great motivator for me to practice vs. a more traditional more boring feel. Great stuff.

Hi Rich, hope you don't mind that I send this to you. This stuff is much harder than guitarist's realize!!
Thanks for everything that you do. Every penny that I've spent on your lessons has been a "sound" investment. You are wonderful.

Just wanted to let you know that the Just Friends lessons are incredible!

Especially the Improv Insights lesson where you discuss outlining the changes with Chord Tones, and voice-leading them, superimposing arpeggios, and scale choices.........then to boot a couple of extra choruses of you soloing at the end.

There is a ton of great info here that of course can be applied to other tunes also.

I especially liked the part on the video where you are doing descending chromatic Guide tones and showing us how to use them in a solo.......A lot of the instructional materials out there do not address the fact that you can use guide tones that target many different notes besides just the 3rd and the 7th..............

I also figured out some comping using those chromatic guide tones as a top voice in my chord........Wow, what an effect!

Thanks again, and you deserve special recognition for having such great, well thought out lessons, and especially for selling them at such a good, reasonable price........

HI, Just wanted to give you high praise for the blues scale potential lesson, I downloaded it just to see how well it was presented for instructional purposes and this is coming from a blues rock and metal guy. One of my passions is spreading the word about good quality guitar instruction for blues rock, metal and country rock players ( sorry no jazz). That is one of the best videos I have seen on how to use the blues scale in the real world if you know what I mean and it came from a jazz player(oh no). i have a web site which I started a few months ago reviewing books , dvds and websites for mainly rock players and I post reviews to my youtube channel too it does not get alot of traffic but it is improving with time. I also watched your presentation of the caged system which was good too, the only thing it lacked was really showing them how to put it all together. Your prices are very reasonable plus I am glad you use wmv format for your videos because they download alot faster I don't care about high def. When I download a guitar video of 45 minutes from another site it takes about 3 hrs yours takes about 25 minutes.

Keep up the good work, looks like I am going to surprise some of my followers when I do a review for my sites about your courses for them, but like I tell them I search out for the best guitar instruction for them to purchase and to stop waisting their hard earned money on ones that only entertain but do not instruct like they should.
Thanks again,

Your lessons are excellent, and have opened doors to information which was previously mysterious.

I've always loved the standards and admired guitarists such as yourself. Since childhood, one of my favorite albums was Julie London's "Julie is Her Name" - I fell in love with Barney Kessel's accompaniments. Your lessons are really helping me to understand the ideas behind how to go about that style of playing. Your musicianship and ability to play and teach are beyond excellent. Thank you!!! I look forward to more lessons.

I got to tell you, I just came across you site and have really enjoyed the 4 lessons I have downloaded and foresee downloading more.

I love your work. For me, you are the best out there. I have the chord-solo, comping and 1st solo up to speed with you (in the videos) of Autumn Leaves and I love how clearly you explain what's going on in the process. Just beautiful stuff.
Thanks for all the work that you do and you have another fan for life up here in B.C. Canada.

Been meaning to tell you that you really hit a home run with your finger style arranging course. Not only great material, but really incredibly well-organized so far. Keep it up, looking forward to it as you develop it.

I hope you are selling a ton of these. I will put the word out wherever I can.

I just downloaded At Peace with My Guitar. Got halfway through Amazing Grace and the tears started flowing…will have to listen again later…wow…one of the best versions I’ve ever heard

I ordered a boat load of stuff from your site and these are THE BEST instructionals I have ever come across! Far superior to any book or video that I've seen--and I own a ton of them. And I'm not even a guitarist! I'm a classically trained violinist whose first love is jazz. (I make my living in the classical world.) Your explanations, specially on the Insight videos, were worth their weight in gold. I was blessed out of my mind. Thank you! And I hope you continue putting out stuff.

Oh my word, I have never had anyone explain the fundamental of theory in such a manner that it makes it even more fascinating to learn music theory.

Your fingerstyle arrangement of Autumn Leaves is absolutely awesome. Thank you.
