As Seen On
In 2008 Gibson featured many of my blues and slide lesson on their website and more recently I have been featured on Guitar Player and Ultimate Guitar. It’s been an honor to have these large companies want to have my lessons on their sites.

This 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
Hello 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.

I 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.
