    I love it. I think if Steve was not such an awesome teacher I would not get as much from it as I do. He makes everything so easy to understand.

    Perfect for the beginner who has just picked up a acoustic guitar and also for the intermediate guitar player who will always learn more with this course. This is a Big course you can learn with bite sizes and you can start applying what you learn immediately. Steve Stine is a excellent guitar teacher who simplifies what he is teaching so you can understand easily. If you want to Rock out on the acoustic, Steve will show you how now!

    this Course took me above and beyond what I thought I was capable of. I continue to revisit certain course sections allowing them to sink in. Steve has a very charismatic way of teaching and I wish I could actually take live lessons with him. The Theory master class he teaches is equally as incredible.

    I’ve been playing for more than 40 years, but I taught myself and so I was too sloppy to play with other people.. I was liking for something to help tighten things up, and this course has greatly improved my playing.

    The course is my bible for acoustic guitar, I started playing or tried to play 2 years ago. I'm 54 and was really struggling with many things. Steve really is a great teacher, his course Strumming with Style really helped me get things going. Perfect lead in to Play Acoustic Now.

    I am another novice acoustic guitar player. I found Steve Stein on You Tube and immediately recognized his skill as a guitar player but also - the more rare talent - as an educator. In this 10 module course, Steve leads one on a journey from the basics through intermediary and a glimpse into techniques used by the pros we admire on record and in concert. I like that the videos can be looped and, even after the module is complete, one can revisit a section as a reference or refresher. Steve is a great instructor. His delivery makes even a novice feel "spoken to" . There is plenty of material in this course for guitarists of all skill level and experience.
