Have you ever wanted to take private lessons from the world's greatest professional blues guitar player?
Yeah, me too...
How about settling for me instead?
I've played guitar on and off over the last several decades and consider myself to still be an advanced beginner.
Which probably makes me a better guitarist than you.
Another thing to consider...
I seem to be a good teacher.
I've taught several friends how to play blues rhythm and lead guitar.
Now I'm asking you to join the group.
Not because I'm a great guitarist (I'm far from it).
Not because I've developed some revolutionary new teaching method (though I may have).
Not because I'm out to make a million dollars (though, wouldn't that be great?).
I'm asking you to join me because it will be fun... for both of us.
This course is unique in that I'm not a very good guitar player. So, taking this course is more like sharing guitar tips with a buddy. It's less intimidating than spending lots of money learning from a professional.
Come on! Let's play blues guitar together.
There are few things more rewarding on this planet than making music with someone!
We'll begin with learning how to play open E and open A power chords - the core of the blues and rock 'n' roll - using 1 finger per chord.
Then we'll learn to add a B chord using a second finger --- from there we're off to the races...
Power chords, open chords, bar chords. Rock 'n' roll rhythm and the blues shuffle rhythm. It's all here in guitar chord diagrams and tablature.
The course includes information on how to play lead guitar and comes to a climax with a solo blues intro, shuffle, turn around, singing with lead conclusion.
By the end of the course you'll know everything you need to play beginner blues rhythm and lead guitar.
Or your money back. No, seriously.
Udemy offers a 30 day no questions asked money back guarantee on any course purchased. So, there goes your risk!
So, have you ever wanted to learn how to play blues guitar?
Why not join me for a 1-on-1 buddy session while we learn together?

I was born in the middle of the last century in Los Angeles, California. After moving for a time to the Silicon Valley, I graduated from Humboldt State University amid the redwoods of Northern California.
Two weeks after graduation I was working as a computer systems programmer for Lockheed Missiles and Space (LMSC) back in the Silicon Valley. Two months after that and I was married as I have been happy ever since (for 40 years).
After 14 years at Lockheed, I moved from working on IBM mainframes to using PCs running the Unix operating system and encountered a thing called the Internet. Cisco Systems seemed to be the right place to work, so I joined the company as their 650th employee. Eleven years later Cisco had grown to over 20,000 employees.
I retired at the age of 48 and instantly became bored!
Throughout my professional career, I'd always enjoyed both writing and providing technical training. So, I attended creative writing classes at my local junior college and began to write.
I managed to write and self-publish a handful of books, but things didn't take off until my wife, Melanie Jackson, an established author with a New York company, left traditional publishing to join me in self-publishing.
In 10 years, from 2010 to now, Melanie and I have made half-a-million dollars self-publishing well over 100 books. I also managed to record a pair of audiobooks for Amazon and Audible sale.
By 2014, our rapid rise to Kindle fame had already dwindled. I decided to pursue my second passion of giving training presentations.
Since 2014 I've published over 48 online video training courses for training sites such as Udemy and Skillshare. My goal is to provide low-cost high-quality screencast-based educational material focusing on my areas of expertise; namely, self-publishing and book cover design using the GIMP. I continue to expand my video training catalog while focusing some energy on resurrecting our flagging book sales using various marketing techniques. Finally, I spend a portion of my time maintaining both my website and my wife’s website, which was developed using WordPress.
I currently live in Las Vegas, Nevada, with my lovely wife and Butterscotch the cat.
