Learn and Master Blues Guitar Review

Rating: 4.5 Stars

Steve Krenz has followed up the phenomenal success of his the DVD course, Learn and Master Guitar, by creating a smaller, more focused, "spotlight" instructional series of DVDs that is dedicated to teaching students how to play Blues guitar.

Summary: Learn and Master Blues Guitar is an excellent course for most guitarists interested in learning to play Blues guitar.

Format: The format of this instructional course is similar to its big brother, Learn and Master Guitar. There are 6 DVDs totaling more than eight hours of instruction. Additionally, there is a both a Jam Along CD and a Jam Along DVD. Together they total 22 Jam Along tracks that provide a perfect opportunity for the student to apply the lessons learned in the instructional DVDs. To complement this material, the Blues Guitar course includes a 109-page PDF file that purchasers can download from the Learn and Master website.

An interesting addition to the Blues Guitar spotlight series is the inclusion of interviews with two world-class Blues players: Jack Pearson (Allman Brothers Band, Jimmy Buffet, et. al.) and Johnny Hiland (Ricky Skaggs, Steve Vai, et. al.). These players discuss a wide range of topics with special emphasis on the Blues. Subjects include: gear, technique, warming up, effects, tunings and many others. If you like gaining valuable insight from accomplished guitarists, you'll love these interviews.

Purchasing Learn and Master Blues Guitar also entitles you to access Legacy Learning Systems' online guitar community. The forums have been updated to include areas specifically for students working through the Blues Guitar series. This is a great way to communicate with fellow guitarists who are working on the same material and often have the same questions and issues.

Strengths: By taking the formula that worked so well with Learn and Master Guitar and applying it to the focused subject of the Blues, Steve Krenz and Legacy Learning Systems have created a solid product. The instruction is thorough and well organized. The Jam Along CD and DVD are key ingredients for practical musical progress. The online support community helps students not feel isolated during the learning process.

Could Be Better: Color photos in the PDF file would have been nice (apart from the cover-page, I mean). However, I suppose that’s nitpicking.

Testimonials: Here's what the interviewed Blues guitarists had to say:

"I really enjoyed working with Steve on the blues course, he's a fine guitarist and an excellent instructor. The Legacy Learning Systems products are top notch."
Jack Pearson, guitarist, Allman Brothers Band, Jimmy Buffett

"Legacy Learning Systems provide a wonderful, informative, and user-friendly way to learn guitar. It's fun, easy to use, and inspirational!!!"
Johnny Hiland, guitarist, Ricky Skaggs, Toby Keith, Steve Vai

Recommended For: This course does assume some basic familiarity with the guitar. So, if you are a complete beginner, I would suggest you hold off on buying Blues Guitar and instead start with the original (see our Learn and Master Guitar Review). However, if you are an advanced beginner or beyond and have an interest in the Blues, this is the course for you.

Guarantee: As with the original Steve Krenz Learn and Master Guitar, the Blues Guitar course is backed by an unconditional, 60-Day, "No Questions Asked" Guarantee.
