After struggling to play, the beginners DVD`s I got from you are my way to playing properly and with confidence. This is the best site for all I need. Keep up the amazing work and best wishes to you and you family.

I cannot BELIEVE the amount of work that has gone into this site. I'm also vastly impressed by the friendly attitude and the attention to detail. Quite frankly one of the most impressive and welcoming sites I've seen. Thank you! If I don't learn guitar it certainly won't be Justin's fault!

  Hello Justin, Best way to say thanks is to purchase your beginners course and buy music albums from amazon,
                    having done so, feel I'm doing my part, within my ability to do so.  Being an old retired man just
                    now learning guitar it's proving to be a process, that will take a while but am committed to it.
                    Your site here is a god send in that en-devour!
                     Thanks, Jim

Hi Justin and team,

May I just say how great this site is! Everything is easy to find, user friendly and the forum is a great place for guidance and encouragement. Everyone there is super friendly and very helpful.

I've bought the beginners course book, DVD and beginners songbook, too, and am currently working through Stage 1 of the BC (yep, just beginning my journey into learning to play) and I am amazed at the quality of the work that went into it. Every lesson is clear and concise. I have found the book to be an excellent compliment to the videos!

I'm already looking into your other books and DVDs on this site as I intend on following a lot more of your lessons and material on here  :D

Great work guys! Absolutely love everything you've done here :)

Regards,
Anthony

Hey Justin! Your positive attitude and well structured courses probably are about to save my dry study time!  I'm living in the middle of nowhere with plenty of time beside learning and sports but just wasn't able to find a balancing musical activity yet. Finding your courses is the best thing that could have happened to me.
Let's just stop here and turn back to practicing, I would like to be able to say the same thing in retroperspective :-) Keep it up!

Hi Justin, I have always had a guitar in the corner of my room collecting dust throughout the years. Me bad! But life got in the way and apart from the occasional strum, it just sat there. I finally had a huge burst of enthusiasm a couple of years ago to start practising. Why did I leave it so long! Absolutely love the guitar and I am becoming better and better with every new chord I learn. It is people like you who keep me motivated. I now feel I want to learn in a more structured way. I have bought your book and will watch your videos, in the hopes of becoming one amazing girl guitarist! Thank you, you are an inspiration!

Hey Justin,

I wanted to thank you for the amazing lessons.  I have been practicing now for 3 weeks every day for 30 minutes to an hour.  You have opened a door that was always closed to me before.  I am now on the path to being a musician.  I have always struggled with learning instruments but with your lessons, I have managed to make steady progress and improve with each day I pick up my guitar. 

I received my guitar about 10 months ago as a gift from my wife for my birthday.  Since then I have never picked it up to practice because I didn't know where to start.  But after I came across your lessons I was floored by your teaching techniques and was able to make progress right away.  That really put a huge smile on my face.

My wife is on a trip for 6 weeks and has no idea I am practicing. I plan on surprising her with a song (Three Little Birds) upon her return. 
Thank you so much for making this a possibility.

I have already purchased the first song book and it's on its way!

1,000 Thanks Justin!

Raul

First of all, thank you and holy crap!

I'm a casual trumpet / keyboard player who's just picking up the guitar AGAIN after years of trying it, hating its learning curve and giving up. This time I'm trying your lesson plan and WOW is it smooth sailing compared to the experiences I've had.

I'm only in stage 3 right now but I never imagined even getting this far in my previous experiences.

As a keyboard/trumpet player who spent a lot of time in school bands over the years, I'm used to instruments with single "keyboards". The fact that a guitar has 6 strings, each one with a different tuning, felt like a monumental task of trying to memorize 6 differently-transposed keyboards before I could do much of anything. It was just daunting.

I'm doing my best to remember that the guitar is not a keyboard and I can't treat it like one. It has its own rules/tricks and you're presenting them beautifully! At the end of the day my goal is still to memorize the fretboard and be able to play the guitar like a keyboard, being able to play melodies by sightreading sheet music and to pick apart chords and play them in the inversion that makes sense in the context of the music I'm playing.

You're getting me comfortable with the instrument in these early stages, a phase I could never power through. Thank you again!

Justin, this is a wonderful site! I ordered the Ukulele songbook and received it across the ocean very fast! I found you because you're basically top on Google. Having bought a tin can ukulele at an art fair and never had a musical instrument lesson, I came looking and have looked no further. In only two weeks I'm finding my fingers will do things I never would have imagined. Your advice to practice chords by playing lots of songs is so right.

Thanks so much.
