“This is, for me the coolest course ever! I had considered the rhythm lesson but then decided to purchase this bundle, what great value for money! So much cool stuff and detailed explanations throughout the course. I was very engaged and will keep coming back to remind myself of some of the tools.”

“Getting Up and playing a blues jam is a right-of-passage for all guitarists, but how to decide what to play? I wanted to write a course that helped guitarists understand the typical ‘jobs’ that guitarists do in the rhythm section, and by using lots of examples, show how they fit together.

The aim is to give players the toolkit and confidence to sign up, get up, and jam with the band!”

Fun and educational

Rated 5 out of 5

Fun, challenging, and educational all at once. Although not specifically a part of the course, I’m also learning how to keep my hands more compact while playing which is a bonus!

The course is just what I was looking for. My rhythm playing is weak but the lessons are providing the insight and tips I needed and the examples are forcing me to improve my chord shapes and playing speed. Great course!
