Thank you Justin for all that you're doing  for all of us. I hope that I am posting at the right place. My name is Frank and I took a few lessons on guitar when I was age 18 but gave it up after a short try. That's been a long time ago because my age now is 85 and I'll be 86 in one month. I'm going to give it a try but will stick with it this time as I really love the sound of a guitar and would love to learn. They say that you are never too old. Well--I guess I'll find out but I'm going to give it a real trial and not give up. Frank

Wow, a thank you thread almost 10 years long?  Maybe some kind of record.  Well, I am not going to kill that streak.  Thanks Justin for all of the great videos, lessons and encouragement.  Keep it going.   Might be a great idea to really confuse us and bring back your old wardrobe from the last decade so the new members can't figure out what the hell is going on.   Anyway, keep the lessons coming, they are all great.  Oh, and thanks for the anti-spam puzzles. Those are fun too.

A soccer friend recommended the site to me. I had no idea something like this was out there. I've since recommended it to three other people. Such a wealth of information on the site and in the videos. This is an incredible way to learn. I feel like I might finally make some progress. Thank you Justin.

A big 'thank you' to Justin and his admins for this wonderful learning opportunity.
I discovered his books on christmas and the forum this week - and I am a fan ever since.  :)

LOL,
Well if you have not figured in out by now, then I have to tell you Justin is one motivated guy. Yeah this is likely his full time job and such. But he does put in the hours, blood, sweat and tears to pull this all off.

Kudos to him for that!

I'd like to add my thanks to the list!

My work schedule makes taking face-to-face lessons difficult, so Justin's online lessons are just what I was looking for.  I also appreciate the thorough instruction and the structured lessons. Many thanks!

   I created an account here so I could Thank You for all your online videos.  I am just starting out so your anchor finger on the A-D-E chords and the daily one minute time challenge has helped me to be motivated to progress.  I created a Google spreadsheet including a graph chart so i can see my progress on these chord here:
http: //goo.gl/ejtx6D

   I just installed your "Justin Guitar by FourChords" Android App last night and using its One Minute Changes feature I got my best scores yet today.  The reason is I was motivated to keep doing it to better my score in the app. I just wish my progress could show up in my Google Play Games App. Also it would be nice to sync my score across devices this way.  But a wonderful app, after my 4 days(3 days now) I do not yet know what my decision will be. I know $34.99US is inexpensive for a years course but it is a lot to my income.  So Thank a lot for making such a difficult decision for me.  ;)

Another thanks from "the Colonies"...ie Canada.  A cousin bought a guitar for the family, and I never in a million years thought I could actually play anything sensible.  Well, I am addicted !!!  I love your gentle, encouraging way, and am so thrilled I can actually play a few chords.  What fun !!!  In my 60's and you have opened a whole new world for me.  I am just getting started - at the 1 minute Change stage, but loving it.  I have some peripheral neuropathy (numbness in the fingers) from chemotherapy, and maybe that helps with having less pain as I toughen the fingers up, but I can still feel the strings.  (But don't recommend that to anyone looking to get out of the finger pain !!!!) 

OK, one tiny thing...you need to post a lesson on how to get the *^$# pick out of the guitar when I drop it in (repeatedly)...haha...and a reminder that when you are looking all over the place for the pick that you think you dropped...just look in between your lips...probably popped it there (maybe that only happens to us over 60's, but made me do a head-slap...doh. 

Its a pleasure to send you a few GBPs, you are sooo worth it !  Your kindness and enthusiasm shows through. Keep it up, and thank you so much.

Thanks, Justin.  I really love the lessons and ancillary materials.  After ~18 months I'm rocking with my sweetheart who began to study blues harmonica about the time I bean working on the guitar.

I have playing guitar for years and have had guitarists block for ages. Have just registered but have used the site for a while now. I would like to say to everyone involved in developing this site that you do an amazing job, and thank you. Justin seems like a very humble person who can relate to the problems guitar players of all levels encounter, and help out. The jazzing up the blues lessons and arpeggio tips have finally given me some direction again. Thanks again guys, and keep up the good work.

Hi Justin,
want to thank you for the unbelievable effort you spent to teach the "world" to play the guitar.
There are a Million sites out there teaching Songs, some of them are not bad, some of them are waste of disk space. But I never saw a site so completly cover everything fot playing GUITAR instead of songs. From "How to hold the plec" to music theory (ok, I admit I still didn't got the stuf with the modes ;D )

THANK YOU!

Just started using the beginners course recently. Great course. I played to a basic level about 10 years ago but taking it back up again. Its great to have something like this.
Justin seems really sound. Does he ever do Q&A's or the like?

Justin,

Your site is fantastic and working on the Beginners Course has changed everything for me in terms of learning guitar.  I also love the song lessons.  You are the surely the best (virtual) jam buddy anybody could want.

In keeping with the spirit of your mission, now that I am staying with it, I have signed up for a monthly donation as well as having purchased hard copies of the Beginner Songbooks. And I hope many more people have done the same since you put up the Donations page on the website.

Thank you.

This forum is also fascinating and inspirational. So thanks to all those people who help make it run.

All the best for all of you

David

Justin,

Thank you so much.  I am nearly 61 years old and while sitting around a campfire around 15 years ago, an acquaintance was playing his guitar.  I had seen him playing many times before and I finally asked "how hard is to learn how to play?'  He told me to forget it, it takes many years and I was too old - funny thing is that he was older than I am (but learned to play many years ago).  I foolishly listened to him and kept the desire to play stowed away.

I will be retiring in about a year or so and will have loads of time to learn, so I mentally ditched that acquaintance's advice and I started looking around the web to investigate.  I found many tabs sites, started playing some basic songs (ok, just two songs!) and really liked it.  I thought there must be a better way and I finally stumbled onto your website and I like the way you talk to your students, how you encourage people, and how you break things down into simple pieces to work on.  After a day or so of reading on your website and watching your videos, I ordered both your beginners course book and song book.  I think I am nearly done with the Stage 1 - I mostly have A,E, and D down and am practicing on switching.  I can hit around 20x/minute, but feel like it needs to be smoother, so I am going to take my time.

I must say I am having fun playing, but after listening to your guitar on the CDs, I am going out to the guitar store and 'am just to go look' at something with a little more depth to it.  I am playing on a beginner guitar which sounds alright, but i want to explore. Gonna go see some Martins.

Thanks again

Age isn't a problem, don't worry about it more time available to practice ;)
Have a look at Taylor's while you're there, they are also very nice :)

Thanks Darrell,

I bought a Martin DRS1 and even my wife who generally is not a very discriminating music listener (by her own account) recognized the difference between my daughters' $99 Yamaha and the Martin.  I did listen to others and liked the deep rich sound of the Martin.

Thank you Justin for doing what you do!
Your site has been invaluable resource for learning for years now and I hope there will be enough contributions to keep this amazing site going for many more years.

Now days I find myself recommending this site to many friends and strangers whenever they ask me for help in guitar related stuff.

You are solely responsible for me getting into jazz guitar after years of playing rock and metal music.

I'm finally in a place where i can start contributing my share to this wonderful site, and i'm looking forward to buying all your books in very near future.

THANK YOU!
