I took up the guitar 6 years ago - at age 65. Discovering BGI on the internet was a pivotal event in my learning to play. Every week I looked forward to a new and exciting session. Over the years, my strumming improved, as did my timing and my chording. While I’ll never perform on stage, John has provided the instruction necessary for me to feel comfortable playing with my friends at house parties, around the campfire or by the pool. It has been such fun.Frank - ON, Canada
To me there is but one great guitar playing genre in this entire universe: acoustic blues. When you really think about this, everything stems from this pure sound and feel of playing unaccompanied with the assistance of nothing else....not even from an amplifier or effect.....it's just you and what you can master or even just conjure up on your trusty acoustic guitar. There is simply no other site or course out there but Blues Guitar Institute I've found that dedicates itself to this absolute blast of a style of guitar playing. A very dedicated John Hatcher of BGI embraces this classic great style of guitar playing but then lifts up everyone into another cool level efficiently opening up the fret board and using all our senses all the time introducing us patiently to ever more challenging styles and advanced techniques on guitar. John's lessons are always a blast that consistently make me find myself inventively jamming on even after completing each lesson. It's like having a close friend hand over a great new toy and discovering new ways to expand upon it and incorporate into our own playing.Jim C - Texas, USA
Blues Guitar Institute is my one stop source for blues guitar instruction and it has allowed me to learn songs and skills at a much faster pace than the other “industry recognized” lessons and books I was working on before I found John Hatcher and BGI. BGI’s lessons can be studied at your own pace and they all have easy to follow video instructions, printable tabs and they are presented in a step by step progression that shows you how to master a song, a riff or technique. Practice will always be necessary, but what you practice and what techniques you use will make all the difference in succeeding or struggling with a guitar skill, or even playing the guitar all together. Thank you John Hatcher and BGI for the time and dedication you have given to enable others to learn and enjoy blues guitar – I can’t say enough for how it has helped me.Mark C - Illinois, USA
