    Some months ago I took some time to create a set of virtual worksheets based on those given in the Learn & Master Guitar Course. I did it for my own private use and training. That way I can do them as many times as I want, wherever I go, without needing to print a single sheet of paper or pulling out a pencil. Since Steve decided to create this set of lessons and workouts for everyone on the web (for which I'm much thankful), I thought that maybe it would be of use for anyone interested, just as a tool to practice and review these concepts. Hope it turns out to be as helpful for
  1. That's some nice playing on a fantastic sounding guitar! Congrats!
  2. Happy Birthday!! Thank you so much for every bit of music you gave to me and us all!
  3. UPDATE Here's the last batch of "Song Lessons". These are the ones added this time: Kylie Minogue - All The Lovers Vertical Horizon - Best I Ever Had (Grey Sky Morning) John Lee Hooker - Boom Boom Jimmy Reed - Bright Lights, Big City Johnny Cash - Cocaine Blues The Decemberists - Don't Carry It All Chevelle - Face To The Floor Michael Bublé - Haven't Met You Yet Deep Purple - Highway Star My Morning Jacket - Holdin' On To Black Metal My Morning Jacket - I'm Amazed Billy Squier - My Kinda Lover Glen Campbell -
  4. @Steve Goeringer @Eracer_Team-DougH Thank you so much for the encouraging words, Steve. I guess I may be aiming a bit too high and too hard for myself, but I believe I'll get there, as many others before me did. For quite some time, I have had a lot of fun singing and strumming the guitar (as I still do today), but not being able to express myself better through it is something that has been weighing on me for a long time. That's why I really want to get all of this to be done right and thoroughly. Because I really need to feel confident in what I'm doing in order not to think about it.
  5. I guess this is a good place to take my chance and come clean about the course. I honestly cannot remember exactly when or how I came about the course, but I’m pretty sure it was before 2010. Maybe I was searching online for something that would help me develop my skills as a musician and guitarist. Along with sites like JamPlay and YouTube channels like JustinGuitar, I stumbled into the Legacy Learning Systems webpage and somehow, with a few more Google searches, I got to a torrent version of the course which I downloaded and kept on my hard drive. I didn’t start the course right aw
  6. UPDATE Here's the first batch of available "Song Lessons". As of this moment, these are the ones I managed to get done: Lenny Kravitz - American Woman Neon Trees - Animal The Ramones - California Sun Tommy James and The Shondells - Crimson and Clover Train - Drive By Neon Trees - Everybody Talks Colbie Caillat - Fallin' For You Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova - Falling Slowly Gin Blossoms - Hey Jealousy Cheap Trick - I Want You To Want Me Iron Butterfly - In A Gadda Da Vida Tommy James and The Shondells - Mony Mony
  7. UPDATE The "Guitar Apprentice" section is now finished. All three songs - Foreigner's "Hot Blooded", ZZ Top's "LaGrange" and Alabama's "Mountain Music" - are now available once again. My next and last endeavor in this project will be the "Song Lessons" section. I suppose it will take quite a lot more time to finish. But I will probably be updating this topic with batches that get done along the way, instead of waiting for all 35 songs to be available. I'll keep you all posted!
  8. Regarding some chord names in the "Shape Chords: Chord Flexibility Stretches" (pg. 3), exercise 3 focuses on shapes derived from an E5 chord rooted on the 7th fret of the 5th string. My question is about the last three chord names. Shouldn't the 10th fret chord be considered a G6 instead of Em7? The 11th fret chord shape is named Emaj7. Shouldn't it be Emaj7/G#? And isn't the last E11 chord, at the 12th fret, actually an A2, since the bass note is an A?
  9. UPDATE Just finished the "Interviews" section. Apart from the absence of videos for Russ Barenberg's interviews, everything else in this part of the site is available for you to explore. Enjoy! P.S.: I'll be working on the "Guitar Apprentice" section next, so that both ZZ Top's "LaGrange" and Alabama's "Mountain Music" become available as well. I'll try to have it done by the end of the week, hopefully.
  10. I remember watching a stream back in November 2011 about the NNS and finding it fascinating. Steve invited Jonathan Riggs to be on the show and talk about it. He was promoting his booklet called "Diamond on the 1" and I ordered a copy that night, right after the show ended. It's an amazing little piece of information.
  11. This is meant as a gift for everyone in this community. At least I’m hopeful it is perceived as such. I’ve been thinking about doing this shortly after the site was taken down and I’ve finally been working on it for the last few weeks. As of this moment, it’s still incomplete and it is, quite obviously, a far cry from the original. Many files were not “captured” and are missing, unfortunately. I tried to do my best with what I found. And this is the result. I deeply appreciate everything that @Steve Krenz has given us all, over the years. From the first Learn and Master course to the
  12. That was a really rough way to finish such an awesome lesson... Content wise, this is one of those to watch again and again. I hope you're ok now, Steve. You should consider having something to drink and hydrate your throat during the lessons. Thank you so much for all the great content and knowledge you share with all of us, many times at the expense of your own well-being. Please, take care and stay safe! Looking forward to the next live lesson, while I keep preparing something to share with the Guitar Gathering community.
