    Claude, this is as every bit as beneficial as sitting face-to-face with an instructor. Thank you for taking the time to take from your knowledge, form it into easily understood sentences, and post it for us noobs and seekers. I appreciate you, my friend.

    You are completely right. technique is really only a small part of what makes a great player. It’s all about passion and expressing yourself. That’s exactly what your videos show. Thanks!

    Claude, First of all, let me say that this course and this web-site are AWESOME! I’ve been playing for quite a few years, mostly traditional folk and country with a heavy helping of blues. I did study with a teacher for awhile, but that was Classical and Jazz. Now I’ve gotten into Electric Guitar and I have advanced exponentially with your system. My present focus is rock and blues.
    I am using your guitar scale system, and my speed is increasing, but I notice you have me practicing very short scales, as opposed to all of the neck,and I’m wondering if I am using the system correctly. Also, the focus seems to be on specific strings and a specific area of the neck (7th to 12th fret). Though I’m not sure how this system works, it certainly is working, but I would appreciate your comments on this. Also, as I am 67 years old with a hearing problem, I am not sure I can hear all of the chord patterns in the jamming track and would appreciate charts if they are available, as I can read fairly well.Thanks for your attention and all of your work with this system.
    Keep pickin’,
