“Like many people, I initially came across Anthony’s lessons that were posted on YouTube. I am a long-time hobby guitarist and a dyed-in-the-wool blues fanatic, so I decided to take a chance and joined the TXBA Locals. My expectations were pleasantly surpassed immediately. I spent (wasted) many years chasing, “false prophets,” and trying to muddle through tablature and trying to, “sound-out,” songs. Anthony’s teaching method is logical and he genuinely shows you HOW to play the music: what he does NOT do is to confuse you with music theory jargon in an attempt
to show you how much he knows and which always ultimately confused me.
All of the TXBA lessons, from the fretboard and theory-related lessons to the artist-specific lessons, are so well thought out and are of such
high quality that I find myself looking forward to learning guitar again. It’s the best value on the Internet. You can see Anthony’s passion for
the music and that he, like us, is a genuine fan of this great music!
Thanks, Anthony and the TXBA team!
I had played guitar for over twenty years (and not very well, I’m afraid) and I had stopped progressing and was frustrated on how to improve my playing; like most of us, I work and squeezing formal lessons in is not really an option for me.
I had very limited experience in terms of playing music with other people and I’ve never been in a band (I would like to be in one and maybe play a gig one day). I joined the TXBA Locals and I’ve worked through several TXBA courses. I’m happy to say that, thanks to Anthony’s teaching, I was able to join in on a jam session last night (03/28/2018). While I certainly wasn’t the best player in the room, I was able to apply much of what I learned on TXBA and, “hold my own”; I even got to take a few solos (which came off great and it was a lot of fun). I still have a lot of learning/improving to do, but thanks to TXBA, I’ll definitely join the jam session again.
