    I think this is the best lesson thus far for me at this time of my development. The lessons are clear and just the kind of material that I was looking for as I wanted to learn how to incorporate chords with lead lines. Great stuff.

    I think I own most of John’s non-slide lessons, and each has helped me improve my technique. His arrangements are soulful, and he really goes into great detail about the subtleties that give him his amazing tone. Things like dynamics, vibrato, rhythmic phrasing, etc.

    John is definitely one of my favorite teachers and his lessons are just fantastic. I hope he does more premium lessons like Shuffle the Blues, because the magic is in playing solo licks between rhythm.

    He’s also a great guy who personally responds to any questions or comments I might have about a lesson. You get the sense he really cares about his students. Can’t recommend him enough.

    You are a great teacher and it is very easy to follow your teaching method. Shuffle the blues is very fun to play and expand to other keys.

    Thank You
