Excellent

wonderful series clear practical well paced useful. best podcast to help learners that I have found

The Kamloops Kid ,

The best guitar instruction podcast I’ve found

This is a really solid podcast. Lee is a great host - he clearly knows his stuff and his enthusiasm is contagious. I’ve owned guitars for decades but only started taking lessons in the last few years, and this podcast is great for reviewing things I’ve already studied, and for introducing new concepts. I’ve really enjoyed the episodes that clarify what different effects pedals, amplifiers, pickups can do for your tone, and Lee’s helped me organize my limited practice time and my practice space. I’ve listened to about forty episodes so far and I’ve learned something from every one. And you don’t need to have your guitar on your lap - l listen to this podcast during my commute and then revisit key points when I’m home practicing. And the companion website has lost of helpful graphics, scale charts, and short videos! Thanks Lee - it’s a great podcast and I only wish it was around twenty years ago!

McCadillacin ,

Best instructor I’ve come across

Currently on episode 6 - binge listening to the podcast. I’m somewhere between a novice/intermediate player, and up to this point focused on songs and open chords - recently taking up power chords.

Theoretically, I feel advanced because Lee breaks it down so anyone can understand.

Marty, Justin, Andy are all great, but for my learning style- these podcasts have tied it all together in a neat little package.

Taking advice from the podcast, I’m gonna follow Play Guitar Podcast/Academy for the foreseeable future because my playing is tightening up and I’m able to teach my son and daughter music theory thanks to Lee.

5 stars all the way.

SUBSCRIBE - I’ll be devastated if this podcast ever stops.
