About John W Tuggle

In 2008 I created this website Learning Guitar Now to show students how to play blues and slide guitar.

After years of live playing and teaching private lessons to students, I wanted to show the world the lessons I felt would really help them to gain a better understanding of how to go about improvising blues and slide .

I believe anyone can play the blues and when you can play the things you want to on the guitar, it becomes so much more enjoyable and gratifying.

Over 160 Hours of Step by Step Courses and Lessons to teach you how to play and improvise blues and slide guitar.

After joining you'll gain immediate access to all of the Courses and Lessons available for learning how to play blues and slide guitar.

Read what real members of Learning Guitar Now had to say about the lessons.


“I started with the free lesson and liked it so much I joined with the All Access Pass for a month. It turned out that thirty days wasn’t enough to even put a dent in all the great lessons on this site so I upgraded to a full year.

It didn’t take long to learn that a year wasn’t long enough either as new courses, licks and podcasts are added all the time.

Whether it’s BB King, Albert King, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix or Duane Allman you want to sound like, LGN gives you the technique for achieving that style and tone. It’s an amazing learning experience that seems to get better with each new lesson.” – Steve Young in Connecticut

Hi John, I have recently become a member of your website and I am very enthusiastic!! The lessons are based on improving your skills by applying a lot of dynamics in the lessons … and dynamics is the magic! In those few weeks, I have made enormous progress! The website is awsome! Incredibly beautiful and lots of good music! You can click each lick lesson separately which corresponds to the numbers on the tab, so that you can always listen back, watch, and concentrate to the music. Thank you so much for that John! – Paul de Jong
