This is the only course I tried in which I feel being taught by a bluesman. He seems to be a nice guy and he teaches you in all honesty the tools of trade. He set me up for the road. I owe him a lot.

I have learned more from Jims' videos in one year than I have in the last 20. Such a wide variety of styles and techniques to learn, I expect to be kept occupied for the next 20 years also.

I have learned more from Jim Bruce's course than from almost any source. I love playing Piedmont Blues and Country Blues. And with Blues Guitar from Texas to the Delta, you get more than just Piedmont Blues. I do like Delta blues, too. The Texas blues is just all bonus. The only thing wrong with this course is my fingers. I still have to practice to get this down, but I'm always picking up new ideas from the course! Clarke

If you are interested in acoustic Blues guitar Jim Bruce is one of the best teachers out there. He plays that stuff very authentic AND he knows how to teach it. A rare combination. The videos are of good quality, the onscreen tab is accurate, and the songs Jim teaches show a broad spectrum of Blues guitar. The price is very fair. I highly recommend this course!

I purchased Jim's Texas to the Delta blues lessons a couple of years ago when I was searching for country blues tabs. They immediately stood out as well put together, well taught and easy - ish to understand. Jim has obvious put so much time and effort into producing these lessons and his knowledge and passion for the music shines through. An excellent instructor and a masterful guitar player! I have re-purchased this course to show my appreciation for what he does and although I'll only dip in now and again when I've got time, they are worth every penny. Thanks Jim.

We are so lucky to have the guidence from Jim to learn this old style of music. He gives us the foundation needed to play ragtime. I am thankful for his blind blake lesson collection, he teaches complete complicated songs from start to finish and breaks it down making learning easier. Go Jim! Highly recommended!

For acoustic blues lovers these step by step lessons take you from zero to semi-accomplished very quickly. Some more Lightning Hopkins and Brownie McGhee please Jim!!

Jim's presentation is incredible. He doesn' take anything for granted insofar as your skill level is concerned. The multiple views of right and left hand playing the same lick are almost unique in the guitar instruction business. He takes us step by step...

A great player and a great teacher. This man loves the guitar and the music it makes. Breaking the licks down to easily learned sections will let you learn to play the music you love better than ever. It has for me. Keep teachin' that pickin' Jim. You truly are the man.

Fantastic music really well presented in an easily understandable manner, with tab that can be printed and every song broken down into small bite sized sections. What more could I ask for!

Jim Bruce not only succeeds in making you sharing his love of blues by his simplicity and obvious kindness but teaches you as well the accurate technics of the old masters of blues. He makes you discover some bluesmen who have unfortunately not the fame they deserve and show you how exactly they played. A thousand thanks to Jim.

I've been an acoustic blues hound for well over 40 years...take it from me: Jim Bruce's studies of the old masters have been so diligent and his transcriptions, with all their nuances, are so accurately rendered that the man should be awarded a PHD in Musicology! ...plus, he's just such a down to earth, nice guy. To quote the man: "Keep it real".....What a resource!! Thanks Jim

Jim's unique approach to teaching the Blues is great. He goes back to old clips of the great masters of blues and breaks it down for you. You can't go wrong with these lessons.

The format Jim Bruce uses is like sitting in your living room and having a good friend show you lick by lick how to play a song. This is how I learned to play many years ago, as I expect many of you did, too. The tabs are simple and accurate, and he combines them with close ups of the left and right hands so there is no guessing. And the songs are classics, a very nice study of fingerstyle blues. Thanks, Jim.
