Your attention to detain and constant encouragement all help to make your tutorials the website of choice. I have unsubscribed from all the rest.

Your lessons have helped me out of a RUT that I was in for 5-7 years. Your style is accessible, you admit to mistakes (which makes you REAL!) and I enjoy every lesson.

I have been wanting to learn finger style for quite sometime now. I was able to go to your site and in about 2 hours learn my first finger style song. Thank you for slowing things down and making it easy to learn.

Your energy keeps me motivated and I always feel like you prepare a unique lesson just for me. (not the same lesson that you give to every student)
