My No-BS Playing Through the Blues Review:

"Playing Through the Blues: Blues Players Boogie Down with Griff!"

If you have dabbled in blues guitar, you've probably noticed that it is not an easy skill to master without some help. Many programs out there that promise to teach blues guitar only teach you a bunch of patterns to memorize. If you want to stop dabbling and really learn how to play blues guitar, you need to learn the fundamentals of the genre and their practical application. Playing Through the Blues by Griff Hamlin will help you do just that.

Griff Hamlin brings over 20 years of teaching experience into this course. He created it to be user friendly and easily accessible to his students. He is a family man and realizes that most people don't have a lot of time to devote to endlessly practicing guitar. So, he designed this course to be a no-nonsense approach to get you straight to the heart of blues guitar skills quickly and efficiently.

This course isn't for beginning guitarists. You will need to have a basic understanding of how to play the guitar and the ability to play bar chords. If you are at this level and really want to learn the blues, then you should get a lot out of Griff Hamlin's course. His goal in creating Playing Through The Blues is to teach you a system to play the style you love. You don't have to spend your time memorizing and practicing endless patterns. He wants to teach you the basics of blues guitar so that you can get right to playing awesome blues and impressing your friends and family.

Playing Through The Blues promises to teach you all the secrets of the blues greats. I don't know about you, but I am always intrigued at a promise to learn secrets. However, I wouldn't say this program is comprised of secrets, but it is composed of a structure and a system. Each lesson is simple, but builds on itself so by the end you really feel like you have learned how to play the blues. You start small and quickly build up to the point that you are ready to learn familiar blues licks from B.B. King, Freddie King, Eric Clapton and Albert King.

This course is available to download onto your computer. This means you don't have to wait for it to arrive in the mail or pay any shipping and handling costs. Fortunately, it also comes with a great instruction manual for anyone not so familiar with computers and technology. Playing Through The Blues contains a book with plenty of diagrams to help you start learning Griff Hamlin's system. There are also over 2 hours of close-up videos to help you visualize the correct fingerings. All of the videos are very high quality and demonstrated personally by Griff Hamlin. Every example in the book comes with audio samples so you know exactly how it should sound when you play it the first time.

Other helpful features of Playing Through The Blues are 10 jam tracks that you can play along with to test your skills. I love this feature because it really helps me to get better when I put my newest skill to the test and see if I can keep up with the recording. The examples are all written in both standard musical notation and TAB form so you don't have to able to read music to keep up. Lastly, you will learn how to play familiar blues riffs from the blues legends. It is always more fun, motivating and exciting to learn how to play something that sounds familiar instead of practicing endless exercises. This program will get you that much closer to impressing your friends and family with your blues skills.

Another bonus of Playing Through The Blues is the lifetime updates area of the website that is available to members. Griff Hamlin updates this frequently to include new tips and cool secrets that he learns. We all know that playing blues guitar is a continuous process, so it's great to be able to keep learning even after you finish the entire course. Playing Through The Blues is available for only $47, which is one of the most reasonably priced programs that I have seen. If you aren't happy with the course, they also have a money back guarantee for the first 8 weeks after you make the purchase.

In conclusion, Playing Through The Blues is a great program for those who want to learn blues guitar. It is affordable and effective in teaching you the system and basic skills behind the blues guitar greats. If learning the blues is on your "to do" list, check this program out. You'll be glad you did. You can click the following link to visit the official Playing Through the Blues site.
