I've been doing the BC course since last Fall and having a blast. Currently on stage 6, trying to conquer the cursed F chord. :) I bought the songbook last year but since I frequently go back and review stuff in previous stages of BC I thought, heck, I really should just buy the BC and give Justin a bit more support for all the hard work he's put into this website. I also ordered the Strumming Techniques DVD.

Now, I only ordered all this stuff on July 6th and today is July 9th. How is it possible to receive this in Canada only 3 days after ordering???? WOW!!! Your service is unbelievable! So for that I thank you!!! I also thank you again for your website, your awesome lessons and your top quality products. Without you I really doubt I would be where I am today.

I'd been using the Yousician App to learn with, but felt it wasn't thorough enough. To be honest, it's more like a video game than anything else. Then I found Justin on Youtube, and started his course. Last week I got the course book. Initially I wanted it just to support Justin, because let's face it - all this for free - pretty amazing, right?

But, now I have the book I couldn't live without it. It's the extra little things in there like the Practice planners.They really help. The book pages are big too, which is an added bonus. It's nice to sit with as a reference guide. Which for me, is better than my ipad which times out and turns off after a minute.

I'm so impressed with it that I've also bought the beginners song book. Next on my list is the strumming DVD.

Could you live without this book and complete the course? Sure. Should you? Probably not. it WILL help you learn, but it will also fund Justin and his work. Get your hand in your pocket and buy it. :)

What are the differences between the Songbook and Coursebook?

Is the Coursebook already online and the Songbook then useful to learn the strumming patterns?

Thanks

The course book teaches how to play, chords, strumming, etc.

The song books has songs in it that use what you have learned in the course.

The beginners course and song book align by stages, so what you learn in the course aligns with the songbook.

There are videos for the lessons in the course book and the songs in the song book on the site and youtube.

  From what I've read, Mr. Dylan apparently decided several years ago he didn't want unauthorized videos of his songs on the Web. (Legal stuff, you know.)
  But take a look here:

Thanks 12-string-Doug!  Checking on his profile also links to Knocking on Heaven's Door which I was interested in.  Now we have an additional 2 songs to work on!   :D

  Glad to have been of some help.
  I think "Knockin'" is a great song for beginners, even if it does kinda spoil my joke about only knowing three chords.  I could claim it's just 3½ chords, because Am is the relative minor of C. (And that right there is about as much as I know about music theory.)  ;D
  It's beyond the topic of this thread, but I have a text file kicking around with some information about playing "Knockin'" with a capo. That might come in handy sometime if you had one or two other people to jam with. Can I send you a PM?

I recently got the book initially to learn the very basics before taking lessons. Hovever the book is so informative with great instruction on every detail i am now wondering if i should go ahead with one to one lessons. Is the book intended for self teaching only or can there be additional benefit gained from lessons with a teacher along with the book?

Ordered the book after I stated Stage 1. I ordered the Beginners Package - it's great. Well worth it. I have   a couple of songs from stage 1 playing well enough (for a starter); just starting work on stage 2 (Am etc).

Really enjoying this.  ;D ;D

Thanks Justin and Jed.

Cheers
