I love the way Colin explains, shows, and then you can play along with him. Also I love the practice tracks he has! I ordered the DVDs as I play guitar alone and used to play this type of call & answer rhythm & lead with my dad who was an awesome guitar player. Sadly he passed away 12-23-16 and I miss him and playing together. This course makes me feel good and able to pick up guitar after a year of not playing as it was too painful without my dad.

Thanks Colin, I'm just starting DVD 2 today and love course so far!!!

You're A+ in my book.

I loved the notation that you've provided with the strumming. I'm still way behind in most areas. I bought your lesson to gain insightful information. It's very useful to me at this point in my efforts. I really need to work on timing and rhythm... You're A+ in my book.

Very patient detail explanations. Takes you through lessons step by step.

I am very happy that I bought this study. Compared with other studies one of the good thing is the written materials - I am 69 years old - and started 1.5 year ago after a life with drums, so I do not have 20 years to progress - therefore I am very happy with these exercises. Blues never die!!

Hello Colin,

Although I have done several of your courses; I haven't started on the Blues Rhythms & Riffs one yet. I am looking forward to getting stuck into it shortly.

Now retired, I spent a lot of time in 2016 on several of your other courses. I particularly enjoyed and benefited from the theory that you teach.

Thank you so much. I have now got to the stage where my playing is good enough to be really enjoyable - but I still have so much to learn.

You know when I first opened the Blues R&R course, after the first lesson I thought yep okay, but tell me something new. However, having progressed through the rest I quickly realized how much I did not know!

In short, a great course for anyone who thinks they know it or even those who do know it and want to refresh their memory adding more spice to their playing. There are a lot of useful tips and different angles to approach and improve anyone's guitar playing.

Well done sir, good job.
