After buying your Texas Blues Guitar course a number of months ago I have just started the course. I am very impressed. After attempting to learn how to play the guitar for the past year I have tried two instructors, two other DVD courses, YouTube, and various online free sites. No one that I have found can touch the way you teach. In short time, your course is giving me hope that someday I will be able to play and understand what in the heck I am doing. Thank you!

Eric, I recently ordered and received your excellent Texas Blues Guitar course. I am very much appreciating your teaching method and style. I am a former music teacher and am used to seeing videos made by persons who assume knowledge and expertise on the part of the student. You do a great job of breaking it down into understandable and learnable pieces.

I’d like to take a minute to thank Eric Beaty. Not only is the Texas Blues genre one of my favorite styles of music, but Eric has also managed to cram an impressive amount of detail and information into the course. All the tools are there in a straightforward and easy to understand fashion; from types of gear and typical setups to practicing methodology and the nuts and bolts of the music. It’s a great product.
