We are very proud of how we help our students achieve their dreams of learning music and playing the guitar. Getting thank you mail is a very fulfilling part of the job, here are a couple of thank you letters we've received from our students from every part of the globe.
... so I'm really glad I found your guitar lessons, they are really useful, I especially like how the tabs move, so its easy to keep up with what you're teaching.
I've been a member for 5 months now. I could already play guitar a little before, but have really been improving lately...
...I'm very happy with these lessons. Everything is explained very clearly and I feel that I'm really making progress. So thank you for everything. I really appreciate your quick and detailed response, encouraging words, and practical advice. I'll start practicing,
and when I'm good enough I'll send you my improvements.
God bless you.
Having my own business, I do struggle with time but really enjoy your lessons when I get chance.
I've played with a guitar for years and struggled to find a course that gives me lessons in plain simple English. Well done for that Tom and keep up the good work!
hey tom, great lessons. I used to play the guitar when I was younger, and now decided that I want to start again. i found your lessons, and they are really helping me remember all the techniques i learned when i was young. i just bought an electric guitar as well, i wanna start learning the eric clapton songs. thanks!
Just want to say well done on the website! Ive only had a guitar a week but I am coming along faster than I could have imagined thanks to your lessons. I saw the basic lessons on youtube while trawling through the millions of tutorials on there. Clearly a lot of people are doing a similar thing, but your lessons are by far the most professional I came across, and you have a great teaching style. Its also very obvious that you really enjoy both playing and teaching music, which makes learning from you fun too.
I am just starting out with the guitar, even though I have had some other musical instruments in my life time. You are right in mentioning that while you practice to strengthen your fingers you can watch TV. As I am practicing, and it is actually getting easier to manipulate my fingers to do what they are supposed to do. From what I have been able to find on the internet, I found your teachings the best. Keep up the good work!
I am really happy tonight because I found your website. I have been planning to learn basic guitar since 2013. It was difficult to find who can teach me, because I am slow learner and sometime ask lot of question. Even though English is not my mother language you teach clearly and slowly. I really appreciate for you lessons.
This site is amazing and i really have to thank you guys! ive been playing for 2 years and the guitar theory is explained so well, no other site can compete with that. Sorry that i cant donate or anything, but i just wanted to say that this site is AWESOME! Keep up the good work!
Everyone who works here is awesome! : -D
Tyler sent us a video of a Johnny Cash song he's just learned.
Thanks Tyler, keep it up!
Hi Tom, I just wanted to write to you with a word of thanks for your website. I'm 34 years old and have always wanted to play the guitar, in fact, since i was 6 years old I have always owned a guitar, but stupidly never taken the time to learn. I moved from England to South Korea a couple of months ago and decided to use my time here to commit to learning something new and your website inspired me to go out a buy an acoustic guitar over here. Your online lessons are fantastic and your enthusiasm for the instrument is outstanding .... ONE THING THOUGH? My fingers are bloody killing me ;0) ...
Dear Tom! Thank you for all of your lessons, I'm so glad I found them on Youtube, they were really useful. I wanted to learn a new hobby, and decided on learning the guitar. I've been at it for 3 months now, and am getting better and better. I can already play Greensleeves, the Johnny Cash songs, and am learning the Spanish lesson song.......
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your website. I've had a guitar for over 4 years and I just finally learned how to play one song last week when I went to a church camp, and so when I came home I was wondering, how I could possible find a way to learn how to play better. Now that I have found your website, it's really helping me along. So thankyou so much for all of this help your giving me, and I really appreciate the tips that you send me, cause they help me understand what i'm suppose to be doing a lot better too!
