    Trovato is a really nice player but it’s hard to glean anything from him due to the way he holds his guitar, can’t see where he is. So sorry, I wouldn’t be buying this one.

    The video is far ahead of the audio, so what I’m seeing him play is not what I’m listening to. It makes it really difficult to follow. It seems like you have a new format for the videos, but it’s not working.

    I’m finding these lessons to be great. I’m a self taught guitarist who learned by playing Charlie Parker and Joe Henderson pieces written for sax. My problem is that I’ve learned to run before I could walk. I’m finding the blues lessons are putting me on track. Though I can play some advanced songs and have some technique, these lessons are bringing it home to me and making me realize it’s all about phrasing, which has been a challenge for me, and what separates a guitar player from a musician. Thanks much.

    cool lick! too bad the camera angle only shows the back of steve’s hand – it’s very difficult to see what he is fingering.

    After watching some of his video’s on YT, I am very skeptical of this instructor’s lessons and will not purchase any.
    Please note the angle he uses to film his fingers on the fret board.
    Seems to me that this instructor does not know or care about visual learners.
