Learned More with Guitar Tricks than with Learn and Master Guitar.

Hello everyone. I just wanted to say that I originally started to learn with the Learn and Master Guitar DVD set. Although it was ok, I have learned much more with the lessons here and have found the Core Learning System to be much more to my liking towards advancing as a player.

Now, instead of learning nothing but public domain tidbits of songs, I am learning popular songs that make learning far more enjoyable. I believe Guitar Tricks is the best way to learn the guitar and am glad I put away my Learn and Master DVD's which were boring me to the point where I was not making progress like I have been here.

If I did not make the switch, I might not know what I know now. I am not bashing the product, but simply stating that now that I have used both, Guitar Tricks easily wins!

I post this in case anyone else was in this dilemma of which way to go.

For anybody that's interested, the two books of the above Gibson course; the Lesson Book (109 pages) and the Bonus Resources book (189 pages) are available as free PDF downloads at Gibson's learnandmaster.com site.

I think it's easier to find them with a Google search than trying to dig 'em up at the site itself. The working hits from Google look like these (but I don't think the urls below will work):

Jpolito,

It's good to hear that you are finding GT is moving you along again :)

I'm sure, though, that your previous learning set the foundation for what you are learning here. All learning is valuable.

Thanks for the kind words jpolito! We respect Learn & Master a lot, so it's always great to hear that we're as good as or better than the competition.

Here's to continued learning! :D

I'd be lying if I said didn't invest in guitar books that covered extra techniques or ideas of mastering the fretboard, vibrato, string-bending and trills etc...

However, it is interesting how Guitar Tricks is at the heart of it all. The rest just fall into line and like a stack of dominoes would collapse without its' lead.

PS I know I will definitely continue to subscribe in years to come.

Hi jpolito, I was in the same boat, trying other learning systems.
I came upon Guitar Tricks more by mistake than design. Having become a full member, have not looked back. Have even recommended this site to work mates. Have now branched out slightly, learning bass guitar.
