Learn and Master Blues Guitar Spotlight with Steve Krenz is designed to be an "in depth, step by step, course in Blues Guitar Playing - the real nuts and bolts and not just a couple of Blues licks. You'll get what you need; the musical understanding, the concepts, chords, techniques and riffs that allow you to enter the world of serious blues guitar playing."



About The Author:



Steve Krenz , according to the Learn & Master Guitar web site, has a degree in music and has played professionally with a broad range of bands from symphony orchestras to the well known "Fifth Dimension". Steve is currently an active guitarist playing and recording in Nashville, Tennessee. Besides having taught thousands of lessons to students of all ages and skill levels he has held guitar playing and music workshops all over the world.



Steve is soft spoken and down to earth with out being boring. His teaching was logical and thorough while moving along at a good pace. He cleverly offers short , fun and impressively inspiring performances as transitions between many lessons.



Who Will Benefit Most From The Blues Guitar Spotlight?



This blues guitar course is not for absolute beginners that have never touched a guitar. However, you don't need a lot of experience either. An experienced beginner that has not necessarily mastered the following skills but, has at least been introduced to them should succeed: barre chords, the notes of at least one Major scale, hammer-ons, pull-offs, bending strings, sliding and understand the music staff, tabs and chord diagrams.



Are These Lessons Designed For Electric or Acoustic Guitar Players?



While you need to learn and understand many of the same techniques for acoustic and electric blues this course has a focus on the electric blues.



What Is Included With This Blues Course



1. 6 DVDs of over 8 hours of practical instruction

2. Jam Along DVD & CD with over 20 songs in various styles for practice

3. In-depth interviews with legendary blues guitarists Jack Pearson & Johnny Hiland

4. Downloadable book

5. Easy to follow on-screen music and key ideas

6. Essential blues guitar techniques explained thoroughly and simply



The Negatives



The companion lesson manual has to be downloaded from the internet then read from your computer. Another option is to print it out on your printer or take it to kinkos to print and bind. All of these options are somewhat inconvenient but this download method does greatly reduce the cost of the overall course.



Support and Guarantee



An Online Support Community is available to each student. A 60 Day Money Back Guarantee is standard on all purchases from Legacy Learning Systems.



Price



The stand-alone Blues Guitar Course is $99 USD plus shipping (ships world wide)



The Bottom Line



What this course offers that so many others miss is a complete, detailed and thorough presentation that teaches the "why" of blues guitar. In fact Steve Krenz often warns the student to not just memorize a series of licks but instead learn to understand and actually hear the music. This is essential for developing your own unique brand of blues guitar soloing.



The fact is that if you are diligent about working through the dvds and practice sessions you will well on your way to being able to sit in with an unfamiliar band and instantly play a song you have never heard. The only instructions the band leader might need to tell you is to play the blues in "A" and you'll know exactly how to proceed.



This course offers an award winning guitarist and gifted instructor, a logical progression of the lessons, excellent video production values and a fair price. For these reasons, I have absolutely no problem recommending the Learn and Master Blues Guitar Spotlight with Steve Krenz.
