    The new format on the site is very nice, now every lesson on a course is more accesible. Great job Carl.

    where is the pdf

      Hey Ron, I think you are looking under this “Blues Guitar Category Introduction” video which is just a welcome introduction video for the entire blues guitar category. To find the PDF for the Blues Guitar Improvisation Level One, look for the course introduction video for that level. Here is a direct link.

    Hi Carl, I find the lessons on forms seem to jump from playing the scale to being able to play along to the backing track without any tutorials about what your doing, with bends etc, are there some lessons that i should be looking at that accompany the form lessons to get me to have a better understanding.

      Hey Ben, check out some of the technique studies in the Blues Guitar Mastery course. It will cover techniques you can use in improvisations in additional to other chapters on double-stops, vibrato etc..

    Hey Carl, I want to begin the Blues series but I only have an acoustic guitar. I know of course the concepts are the same for either guitar, but is there any disadvantages going through the course on an acoustic since it’s built differently than an electric? Sorry if that made no sense. Thanks.

    • Carl Brown on April 18, 2019 at 6:37 am

      There might be some techniques (like bends) that will be tougher on the acoustic, but for the most part, you can do the whole course just fine on an acoustic. 🙂

    Carl, you are a great guitarist. I have learned a lot by viewing your free lessons on youtube and I have made a bit of progress. It makes me happy when I learn a new riff or song. I especially like your breakdown of Satriani stuff. I wanted to know if you would share the pedals and their settings to dial in and get that unique Satriani sound.
    Thanx again for everything guitar.

      Hey Philip, I will be doing a Satriani tone tutorial in my guitar tone course in the academy soon. 🙂

    I would like to see more Blues song lessons, maybe some older stuff?

    Hello, just joined the Premium Plus and I couldn’t figure out how to start lessons. Please advise.

    • Carl Brown on September 24, 2019 at 2:59 pm

      Hey Yusuf, just send me an email using the contact link at the top of the site and I can help you get started. 🙂
