  1. Anthony Carter

    First of all the Blues Guitar course is very thorough, from the basic things such as strum patterns and learning notes on different strings, through to chord chasing, using hybrid scales and building licks by combining different embellishments such as slides, bends, hammer-ons etc. Steve is a good teacher because he has a feel for the things that many find hard to grasp, so takes the time to cover them from different angles. There is a wealth of very useful material in this course that continues to be a reference source for me. For those who like the blues and want to learn to sound better than half decent, I whole-heartedly recommend this course.

    Blues Guitar has dramatically enhanced my understanding of the many ways to play blues all over the fretboard. From cool turnarounds, walk ups and downs, new chords, new phrasings, interconnectivity of scales, and most importantly, new rhythms, the course has captivated my interest and energized me to practice and learn daily! Learning at my own pace, but my friends noticed within a week or so of my starting Blues Guitar, that my playing was significantly improved! I am not quite halfway through the course. I highly recommend Blues Guitar for new players and old (like me). Steve’s teaching is worth your time and your money!

  3. Duane Hoagland

    Helping me learn the basics of blues. Good exercises to improve my skills Learning some whys in addition to the how to

    I am in the middle of Blues Guitar course now and loving it.
    It is amazing how Steve Stine is able to transmit his knowledge in an easy to understand way.
    What I like in this curse is that I can go through the theory behind but in parallel immediately start to improve my skills with the solos and other materials that comes with.
    Also, Steve has many tricks that give us a short cut to learn (for example on how to memorize the notes on each string).
    I do recommend this course.

    Hi just a quick note to say that I am really enjoying Steve’s Blues course. At present I am about 40% through it and am really impressed with Steve’s knowledge and teaching style. He just exudes enthusiasm which is great to keep up the motivation during this wretched Covid-19 period. I have learnt a great deal from this course, it is structured in a very logical way, building upon earlier steps. This gives you the confidence when the jamming tracks come around. This is the third Guitar Zoom course I have purchased and I can heartily recommend them. Cheers from Wales U.K.


    I can only tell you this, the mystery is history!
    I always wondered how guitar players knew exactly where to go on the fretboard and how everything connected together in any key. Unlocking the fretboard was the start!
    Now, learning(and playing!) the 12 bar blues, 7th chords for blues, blues licks, and tracks to practice along with has given me MANY hours of satisfaction. Sometimes I cannot believe its me playing along!
    I like how the blues course is set up. If you have taken other courses with Steve, there are some basics that are repeated, but that is a good thing. Steve is a master at delivering the subject matter in a way that it flows and it all makes sense. Dont skip a thing, even if you think you know it, and replay it as many times as you need.
    I look forward to many more courses in the Guitar Zoom library.
    Thanks to all the people who work to put these courses together, its a college education at home.
    Keep the Blues Alive!

    Hi Steve

    Lessons I’ve got from other people aren’t a patch on yours you are brilliant teacher.
    I will definitely be downloading some more courses in the near future.

  9. Richard Thomas

    I am about half way through the course and already feeling tremendous benefit. I am a intermediate classical guitarist wanting to learn electric guitar blues and I would recommend this course to anyone who is happy to learn and experiment. The tutorials are just the right length and with a the right amount of practical theory I can now jam my own 12 bar blues from scratch. very, very happy!
