Scott's Reviews

  • "The instructor is very thorough I think it is a fantastic beginner course, or even a great review for some experienced players."Josh F.
  • "I love the 101 course. It is a good refresher for me who has been away from guitar for a few years and would be perfect for absolute beginners."Enrique M.
  • "I have only been on starter lessons but I have learnt more in a few weeks than I ever have in the time I have had my guitars. The teacher is excellent and explains every thing so that you can't do anything but concentrate on what he is teaching."Daren I.
  • "Scott is terrific. He assumes I know nothing -- a good assumption -- but does not talk down or dumb things up. He's personable, likable, intelligent, practical-minded, mentions things that are obvious to a player, but absolutely not obvious to a newbie."Tom R.
  • "The fact that it is free still baffles me! It is extremely useful and makes you feel very comfortable."Leo T.
