I agree, this is the most affordable, productive lesson platform I’ve seen online. Over 480 full lessons and at least that many quikies. Do yourself a favor and subscribe

Having a live track while presenting ideas is refreshing and immediate, love it!

Thanks Brian, I have learnt and understood more in the last 3 weeks from you than I have over the last 3 years with everyone else.

Another rut busting lesson full of little gem takeaways, thanks again Brian, simple but so effective.

Leemz Google says:

This is outstanding. I haven't touched my guitar in years and this makes me want to dust it off right now.

Kennard Yamada says:

#1, he does not do this for free. Brian is selling a subscription course, one to which I subscribe and one that is worth more than the $90 a year that he charges. #2, you should subscribe, you will find a wealth of valuable lessons and you’ll find it the best $90 a year that you spend. These YouTube videos are all only a part 1 of if a bigger lesson. Trust me, you will get a lot of value of what is the cost of three in person lessons from your local instructor.

Ambrose Harper says:
