    If you want to step further into Blues guitar playing and progress in a chromatic way, Blues solo made easy is the course. Like all of Steves courses it is so well structured and easy to follow with the flexibility for you to try different techniques suited to your style of playing. Thanks again Steve for making my guitar playing a wonderful journey. Keith(UK)

  2. AARON P.

    Like every other Steve Stine course this is the most comprehensive course. I have learned a ton of new stuff. This course may be one of the made easy courses but I can’t begin to tell what I got out of it. Even for an old man with ADHD it kept me riveted and wanting to go back and learn more.
    Thanks Steve and Guitar Zoom!

  3. Trevor (verified owner)

    Excellent course. Steve teaches just as well as he can play. The content and quality is of the highest standard. He keeps me interested, motivated and relaxed enough to learn, unlike the old piano tutor who would smack your fingers with a ruler for making a mistake.

  4. Mark Garcia

    This is an excellent course. Steve does a great job at explaining each step and providing the user the necessary skills at excelling your guitar journey. The great thing about Steve, in all his courses, is that he sincerely cares about your progress. Always makes it a point to learn each step and practice before moving on to the next step. Stressing these points makes your progress enjoyable in the journey and definitely solidifies your playing techniques. This is what makes Steve a great teacher!!

  5. Craig Beardwood

    Excellent Course, well constructed, very useful downloadable instruction Booklet. Steve Style is an excellent teacher/guitarist and has the ability to convey the most difficult concepts into an easy to follow instruction.

  6. Christian Schnura

    Blues Solos Made Easy is a very good course to take your guitar playing to a higher level. Like all Steve’s courses, the course is really well structured and easy to learn. If you follow all of Steve’s instructions, you’re guaranteed to get there. Not everything worked for me the first time, I tried a few things over and over again until it worked and it took me one step further. My conclusion, Steve’s courses are all easy to learn because Steve explains everything very well and understandably.
    Have fun playing the guitar….
