    I went to music school 30yrs ago! . Now my daughters in school I have a buddy that wants to learn how to play, mid 40s. Finding Steve all over the Internet, I enjoy his teaching style and cadential‘s. So I got the course, to see if this was good for my buddy! I don’t think I would recommend this course for him, the course has good ideas but just too basic and inconclusive. The Included book though, is too advanced for the beginner. this course is a very small piece of a bigger picture! Guitar for life would be the starting point not this! I tried to reach out to Steve or any other instructor for guidance on the courses and no one but the call centers are available to talk too! Even with emails, texts, and the foreign call centers, to please forwarded messages? Nope! No Steve!! Make you wonder if Steve’s even real. J/k 😎🤘🏼😎

    I am a 75 year old man who decided years ago that when I retired I as going to take learning the guitar seriously, unfortunately along the way I have injured my left shoulder which makes things harder,( my main focus at the moment is making clean cords) as well as having acoustic course I also have play guitar for life between the two I am enjoying the purchase , only wish I was younger, but know I will never master it all now, however I will have these courses available for my gran daughter so they wont be wasted

  3. Bryan Cunningham

    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.

  4. David Peacosh

    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.

  5. Johnny Waldrip

    The course id great and Steve is great. I’m the week link in the chain. But Steve is one of the best teachers there is. Thanks.

  6. Bruce Campbell

    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.

  7. Karl Greaves

    Great Course, Acoustic Awesome. Top Teacher.

  8. Larry Baker

    Still haven’t completed course, however what I used so at has been very helpful. Steve Stine is a great teacher who makes it fun to and somewhat easier to learn to play. Good for a beginner and an intermediate player.

  9. Anthony Gaudio

    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.


    great course !!

  11. Jay Meeboer

    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!

  12. Frank O’Connor

    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.

  13. Terry Tosh

    I’m finding this to be a VERY comprehensive course that I refer back to frequently. From essential music theory fundamentals to basic and more advanced picking & strumming techniques, Steve clearly explains and demonstrates what you need to know to be on your way to making music with your acoustic.

  14. Chris Heise

    Great course, thanks Steve!

  15. Allen Murphy

    I end up playing rhythm guitar at most blues jams. The singers and bass players like me because I play small chords and stay out of the way. I refer to this course quite a bit looking for fill kicks to supplement a blues shuffle or cut boogie. Steve is an outstanding teacher. His friendly approach to the material really inspires you to continue to peel away at the onion.

  16. Jack Haskins

    Tons of great stuff to learn and then apply to playing. There are things I learned in this course that I didn’t know how to apply. This was and is primarily based on my inexperience and a lack of actual playing experience.

  17. James Baker

    This is a great course. Very impressive.

  18. Mark Stead

    Fantastic. Though I haven’t completed the course yet it has given me the desire to explore the acoustic guitar in ways I could only have dreamed of a few months ago. I haven’t picked up my electric for months!!! Says it all really. Recommended to everyone.

  19. Dorothy Chiron

    Great course Steve. Appreciate the patient and thoughtful explanation of both the music lessons and the common sense advise regarding being a musician and not just a player.

  20. Robin Ridler

    Well, I don’t think it would be fair to rate this fully as I haven’t completed the course but what I’ve done so far I am enjoying and getting a lot from it! Steve is an awesome instructor and I get give him enough props! Just a big Thank you will have to do for now 🙂

  21. B.B Bhargava

    This is such a lovely course and complete training . I have gone through . Yet I need to refer again and again to discover more aspects .I treat this as Bible of Acoustic Guitar for myself.
    I feel going through the course when I am in difficulty playing .
    Request to expand some aspects for greater understanding by newbies.
    Thanks to great teacher Steve .

  22. Danny Irons

    All of the courses that Steve has designed are easy to follow. Steve has a great way of training that makes it very interesting and fun to follow along.

  23. M.J.E Van manen

    awesome but I have not finished the whole course.
    Maybe a good idea for the next course from Steve : How to play with drum or bass player, how to begin, which key can you used and some used jargon in the band when they communicate before beginning a session. Also, it must be workable with music workstation.

  24. Jon Peterson

    The course is great. So much to learn but more importantly a fun way to learn. Steve is, in my opinion, the best teacher I have watched and learned from,on the internet.

  25. Ken Cella

    Its a great course. I enjoyed it. It helped learn acoustic guitar easier and faster.Great stuff from chords to scales on to arpeggios. Has finger style,,strumming lots of stuff. I got a lot out of it. I would like a bit more on acoustic soloing.
    Thanks Steve,keep up the good work

  26. Dick Wenger

    working on another course just now so I haven’t started it, but Steve is always good and I’m looking forward to it

  27. Robert G Gardner Jr

    Covers everything you need for Acoustic.

  28. Donald Littlejones

    I am still making my way through it ( module 6 ). I find Steve’ s easy going ( have fun ) methods motivating. I have a hard time dedicating myself to this one course… I take private lessons and am enrolled on a couple of other acoustic guitars sites and here in Eastern Ontario we are outside trying to get as much done before winter sets in. I still get about an hour a day in, but when winter comes, I will be able to dedicate more time to guitar and Play Acoustic Now. I did learn the finger picking pattern to Dust in the Wind at the end of Module 5 !!!! Awesome!!!!

  29. Abdullah Nafisah

    A well designed & & comprehensive.

  30. John Schulz (verified owner)

    Excellent course! So much “red meat”! Recently moved across country and just now getting back into it. Missed it!!

  31. Robert Stevens

    I haven’t finished the course at this time. What I have viewed is great. I have other courses. I have been working on 36 have Acoustic links the most. I find you courses are very helpful. With time I become a lot more learned. I have been working on Mastering the fret board also. I am able to identify the notes on the fret board faster now. When I get time, I play as often as possible. I have been letting others I know about GuitarZoom.
