TomThis website is where it’s at if you’re really looking to learn blues in many different styles in an easy laid back way. Here me out for 20 seconds, I don’t get paid to write this I pay John every month and it’s so worth it.

I absolutely love this website, format, lessons, and most of all John’s Playing/teaching style.

As another member pointed out, I have also ordered DVDs and have tried out every big guitar website out there for good quality instruction. When I finally saw that John started an All Access Pass which means all of the content whenever you want, I signed up immediately.

I found other sites to be too busy with too many teachers. I didn’t want to learn metal, jazz, classical or anything else so why pay for it. I already knew how to play guitar, and I wanted to really dive into learning different styles of blues.

If you’re serious about learning blues and being a well rounded guitar player I recommend “Learning Guitar Now”.

Jose Diaz in Germany

picHello my name is Jose, I am 53 years old, live in Germany and have been playing for over 20 years intensive blues guitar. I had a long time problem where my playing just sounded boring and you just can’t hear in my solos where I am in the 12 bar blues progression. I have long been looking at John’s “Learning Guitar Now” videos on YouTube and this is exactly the way I want to play guitar. Then I once I tried the “All Access Pass” I was thrilled.

I started with “Blues Techniques” and “Blues Method 1 & 2”. These courses have opened my eyes and mind to bring my playing forward.

John has a very good method to bring theory and practice together so you will know what to play that will sound great.

It is also important to me that I have the flexibility with the “All Access Pass” to learn when I have the time. Even if I have questions or want to know where I make mistakes, I can write John and he responds very quickly and gives very good tips about how I can get better. I recommend it.

Glenn Klein in Lawrenceville, GA

glennI am only a couple lessons into the Slide Method 1 in Open E, but I could not be more pleased with my decision to join Learning Guitar Now. John is not only a great musician, but he is a great teacher. The lessons are well presented, they go in a logical order, and the production quality is great. I like that the courses are broken up into a series of smaller lessons focusing on individual topics. They have exercises to practice, and you can check off a lesson when you are satisfied with your progress so it keeps you focused on your goal and you can go at your own pace.

I have also started on the Blues Rhythm Guitar and Blues Guitar Method courses and am equally pleased with them.

I love that new items are frequently added to the website, so it is constantly getting better. I am so pleased that I found Learning Guitar Now; I only wish I would have joined earlier.
