Great material!! I'm
really having a good time with it! This last lesson is going
great! Man I just love that "Wes Lives" thing!
Received the first
lesson Friday. I am highly impressed! Your positive, well organized
method really is one to one... thank you. I think I finally have
found the coach I've been looking for. Mark, watch me develop.
I know it is going to happen... I feel it. I am prepared to do
the work. YES!!!!!!!!!!
I want to say that
I think we are going to hit it off! I really liked your acoustic
demo section on the tape. Some very cool playing. My wife also
liked your playing a lot. It's nice to know that you have a solid
background in classical guitar as well as jazz.
Thanks for the lesson
- I'm digging the tunes! I ran through the song a few times,
and tried the first Stevie Ray riff. Great stuff!
You seem to give me just
enough information to help me find out the theory I need, without
giving it away. This is really helpful. I continue to learn the
fretboard a bit more each time.
I'm thrilled so far.
Your material seems great and your response time and level of
attention is fantastic. So thanks for everything so far and I
look forward to working on the next lesson.
Well I finally found
a jazz teacher. Why is it so hard to find good jazz teachers? I'm having a blast with the
blues jazz progression. This is great stuff. Having a great time.
I started to check out this new guitar and was playing a song
I put together from the licks and progression from your first
lesson. After I was done I heard a voice from behind me saying
'Nice jazz young man.'
I immensely appreciate
the personalized approach you are taking -- the lengths to which
you go to make these lessons a fruitful experience can be felt
in every single word. I can feel the inspiration already.
Lesson #2 arrived
yesterday. I love it! I haven't been this motivated in years.
'The Sweet Alice Blues' just kills. It is just what I needed
to help with practicing the standard jazz blues progression.
All in all, Mark, I can
say that your approach to teaching, and the methods you use,
are just what I've been looking for. I wish our paths had crossed
twenty years ago. I am having more fun with music than I've had
in a long time.
I received my first
lesson yesterday and I just want to let you know I am pleased.
I didn't expect the lessons to be personalized. I have seen examples
of other "through the mail lessons" and they are nothing
more than off the shelf, one size fits all, commercialized packages.
I'm very satisfied
with the current direction you've taken with the lessons. This
third lesson is "smokin!"
Thanks Coach! I stayed
up late on Friday to learn the 'C Jam Blues.' Wow I am playing
chords on the bass in lesson #1!!! Pretty cool. I listened to the tape; I appreciate
the personal touch on side A. Your guitar playing was beautiful.
You definitely like a variety of music, like me. I think you
hit the nail on the head with guessing my skill level. These
lessons were 'just enough' challenging.
I received the lesson
yesterday and played through it last night. I was impressed with
your conscientiousness and the quality of your materials. I liked
the samples of your playing a lot. I feel very good about these
lessons so far and can't wait to see what comes next! The care
and effort you take in making your tapes and transcriptions is
apparent - they are the finest materials of this type I have
Well, the jury is
in. Your first lesson is all I had hoped for and more. It is
an excellent combination of a challenging jazz guitar arrangement,
music theory, technique suggestions, and quality presentation.
