I was 15-16 yrs old. Stopped playing because I was frustrated
with the theory aspect of the lessons and disgusted that I
couldn't play any songs.

and all I could play were some scales and a few chords. Fast

on and off since my teenage yrs and would struggle to try and
learn a song here and there.
past year when
my second son went off to college I figured it was time for me
to try and keep myself occupied by picking up the guitar again.
In December I stumbled on to your website and started working on
your free download lessons and songs. When you offered the
"strummers paradise" I was anxious to try and move my playing
forward. I just downloaded the first few songs today and I am
amazed that I can actually play a song pretty easily after
practicing from your lessons and working on it a little every night.
I first tried
"Folsom Prison Blues" because my wife and I just watched "Walk the
Line" recently. I was starting to play the song after watching
the video and my wife came in from the other room . . . and was
at the fact that I was actually playing and singing a song.
I told my wife that if this type of lesson was available when I
a teenager I never would have stopped playing.
you've rekindled in me something that I always regretted not
sticking with. I guess you're never too old. Thanks

came into the study and said '
where's that nice music coming
Thank you for the video's, I know I’ll have blisters on the thumb and
sore fingers later, but it’s well worth it.
I purchased my Guitar 5 years ago and tried to teach myself via
books and a CD, I got so frustrated after many weeks of persistence and
gave up. My son who lives 1000 miles away also owns a guitar and told
me about your web site and said it was unbelievable and that I
would benefit from your video tuition.
down loaded some of the
lessons last night and within 30 minutes I was playing music! My wife
came into the study and said where's that nice music coming
She was very
surprised that it
was me and not the PC, it was a different reaction from her 5 years ago. Thank
you very much for this opportunity, I'm hooked. I look forward to
the coming lessons.
congratulate you on your superb choice of tunes
for us novices to have a go at. They seem to fit the part perfectly not
to difficult and sound good to me even on my first attempts. Having
tried a few tutorial sites on the internet over the past 12
months yours is the best by far.

"The DVD's he does via mail order are
As a purely self-taught acoustic
have found it a challenge to find a reliable and cost effective
resource available on the web. It's usually all very expensive with
little 'learning' content and virtually zero after sales service, and
trust me, I have tried a few!
Then I found Mike Herberts and I have never looked back. This guy is
truly amazing and the most down to earth person you will swap e-mails
with. Hell, I even phoned him one day for a chat! How's that for
looking after, and caring for your subscribers. Mike truly cares about
guitarists of all levels and delivers learning videos second to none.
And the price? Well, miniscule, compared to what I've paid for, for
on-line learning guitar videos in the past. The DVD's he does via mail
order are astonishing. Quality is superb. Long may it all continue.
