About Me

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 help them better understand how to play improvisational blues and slide.

I believe anyone can learn how to play the blues; it becomes much more gratifying when you can play the things you want on the guitar.

What Members of the All Access Pass are saying…

John’s courses and lessons have guided me from a relative beginner to a gigging musician

When I discovered Learning Guitar Now I quickly realized it was exactly what I had been searching for, and I’ve never looked back. John’s courses and lessons have guided me from a relative beginner to a gigging musician and member of three bands. The courses cover every aspect of blues guitar and include so many great tips and important insights that will improve your overall musicianship. Purchasing the LGN All Access Pass is simply one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

John G

He covers all the great blues and rock guitarists

LGN is an incredible resource for anyone wanting to get better at playing the blues. Working through John’s lessons will get you better at improvising, help with techniques like bending, slides, raking, and vibrato. He covers all the great blues and rock guitarists and some that you may not have studied previously. I highly recommend the All Access Pass to anyone who loves playing guitar!
