I have been picking quite a while. Jim will save you many years struggling to pick up songs and styles from the greats. His break downs are the best anywhere, and his videos combining on screen tab and close up views of both hands cannot be beat for communicating what you need to know. The range of styles he covers is amazing too. The lessons are great and very economical. He is a "player" and he is not just putting casual videos together and calling them lessons. These lessons are an investment for a serious musician at any level who loves this music.

This is a great course for anyone who's into the blues and history of the blues. All topics are covered and explained very well. I wish something like this course was available when I first started playing 40 years ago.

Jim, is an absolutely great interpreter of traditional country blues guitar. I have been playing and listening to this music for forty years. If you have any desire to play folk blues guitar, Jim's lessons are a super way to learn.

I love Jim's Lessons. I have been to countless "yeah, I can teach that" guitar teachers. Many of them "claim" they can teach the Blues but are really "jack of all trades" guitar teachers who never quite got it right. Jim specializes in the Blues and his lessons are the real deal. The other guitar teachers I've had just didn't have enough knowledge of the Blues. Jim is a living Blues Guitar Encyclopedia and what you learn is the real deal. If you are looking for acoustic Blues Guitar Lessons you are in the right spot.

Polished, professional teaching style and presentation which conveys Jim's unique style, flair for and mastery of the blues admirably. I find that while others can teach me the notes, often very well and professionally, Jim is in a class of his own in leaving me feeling that I've learned how to make some music.

I've been playing guitar for a while and I've always wanted to play just like the great Blues players from way back when, and when i saw Jim playing I thought THIS IS IT, at last someone who can play THE BLUES properly. Great player with great technique. Tx.

Ho già avuto modo di studiare alcuni brani che Jim insegna con il suo formidabile corso su DVD che ho acquistato tempo fa. E' un grandissimo maestro che insegna con video ricchi di particolari e con estrema precisione nei passaggi più complessi e che richiedono una grande conoscenza tecnica dello strumento e del genere che si insegna. Nel caso di Jim: il Blues.

Jim's teaching is shared learning, and commitment to passion with fun, as opposed to many of the web's sales pitchers. I have really appreciated the step by raised step encouragement and student-centred detail, and the belief that it can be done by persistent time on task, and it actually works. Leon

Excellent tuition well thought out and executed giving beginners and intermediates a true incite into methods of playing the original blues by the early greats. Anyone thinking of buying a Jim Bruse Course will find them easy to follow and their guitar playing improve. I speak from experience, the lessons are great!
