This week marks the 10 year anniversary for the release of my first ever DVD video course Slide Guitar Method 1 Open E Tuning. This is the course that started it all for me and was the catalyst that led to this website being my full time job for 10 years now. It’s crazy how time seems to fly by so quickly as it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long ago since I was filming that very first video.
Things have changed dramatically since Feb of 2008 but one thing I have tried to continually focus on is making the lessons better and better every single year. I can’t say whether or not I have accomplished that but I sure have put forth a lot of effort in the past 10 years to make that happen. You can be the judge whether or not I have made the lessons better.
I would also like to thank every single person who has watched a lesson in the past 10 years whether it be free or paid. Without you guys there would not be any website at all right now.
Next I would like to send an extra special thank you to everyone has purchased lessons over the past 10 years as it is you who have allowed me to continue to make a living doing this and also to keep investing in more equipment to make the lessons better and better. I can’t thank you enough how much this means to me that you guys keep purchasing lessons and subscriptions. It’s been a dream come true for me to be able to do this for a living full time.
With the 10 year anniversary of Slide Guitar Method 1 Open E at hand I decided to put out a new course that focuses on open e tuning. I thought it was fitting since that’s how this website started and the reason I am here in the first place. It was also the Open E Tuning slide lessons that Gibson liked that I put out on YouTube that led to them using some of them on their website back in 2008.
It was an amazing feeling to know they thought my lessons were pretty good and also to put me and my favorite slide guitar player on the same webpage. That was an unbelievable moment when I first saw that and a feeling I’ll never forget.
After thinking about all this it was even more apparent that I should do something about Duane Allman Slide guitar for this 10 year event and that’s exactly what I have done.
For this 10 Year Anniversary I went back and listened to a lot of my favorite Duane Allman open e tuning solos and started going about putting this course into place. The material started coming really quickly and I knew this was going to be a great course in my mind. Whether or not other people will enjoy it still remains to be seen but it has passed my standards and ultimately that’s all I can do.
