    I loved this course. This was the first course I bought from Guitarzoom. Steve explained the concepts very well. I learned the fundamentals of blues from this course. It taught me about the Blues scale and pentatonic scale. After this course, I went ahead and bought the Blues Master class. The reason I have it 4 stars was because the Jam Track that Steve played as the title, i did not get it. I do have the tab for the score, but not the backing track. I wish I can get the title backing track. This would help me use Steves suggestions and his style for me to learn,enjoy and cherish it more.

    Highly recommended. I had been tinkering for years and could play chords and pieces of songs. This course opened up my ability to pick up my guitar, jam in 12-bar blues, play in any key, and allowed me to create new music easily. It is great for beginners, which means some skipping if you have experience. It was exactly what I needed to start creating my own music and my own style.

    Hey guys, great to hear from you. I have taken the Theory and Blues courses and give them both my highest recommendation. I'm retired and can finally get serious about music and understanding more how marvelous of an instrument the guitar really is. Having a blast with the theory and can't wait for more. Love the blues. Keep the courses coming.

    I'm about 85% of the way through the course, and agree it's a great foundation for playing blues. And I've found I can listen to the radio/blues channel and play along with most of the songs. Another great benefit of purchasing the course has been all the free modules I've gotten as a result (usually from attending Steve's webinars).

    The best blues course available. It teaches you from scratch, rythms to soloing and techniques. If you want to play blues, that's the best place to start.

    I searched on line and tried many instructors before coming across Steve. He is a wonderful teacher. I have recommended him to many of my friend who have an interest in guitar. He has such great patience and his passion for playing, enjoying, and teaching guitar comes through in every lesson. I have played a guitar, now I know how poorly, for many years. The thing about learning from Steve is that he makes me want to try new and different things and he doesn't in any way try to restrict my learning by making me a slave to his particular regimen. While I have enjoyed his blues class very much, I really have benefited from his music theory class. If I could do it over I would start with the theory and then do the blues class. Either way, I am learning a ton. An intended practice session of a half hour nearly always gives way to a two hour or more euphoric experience. So Glad to be part of this.

    What a fantastic teacher. I have never listened to anyone who explains playing guitar so straight forward. His enthusiasm is infectious. If you want to step up your guitar playing, this is the man that can teach you. Keep up the great work Steve.
    All the best from John. United Kingdom.
