Feedback from clients:

"I have lots of instructional material, books and DVDs, and Chuck's lessons are the ones I always go back to."

"There really is SO much in Chuck's material. And presented with a really down to earth and positive energy.  Really, really good stuff from a great teacher."

"Chuck is an awesome teacher. Even watching him playing is worth more than the price of the package.
You want to improve your skill and vocabulary? I'm sure that you shiny pedal can't help. Do yourself a favor, get this course and thank me later."

"If anyone is on the fence about ordering this material, by all means do it NOW! There is a lifetime of study material here that guitarists of all abilities can learn from."

"Everyone listen to me...I'm a classic rock player and a blues player who has always aspired to have better chops and a bigger library of ideas and to be able to expand my playing. Chuck's lessons, and I have everything he has done on video, enabled me to start on this journey last year and go where I want to go for the rest of my playing career."

"I started reading the original post and then I realized it was Chuck freaking Daloia!!!!! I couldn't buy this fast enough!  For the price of one lesson, I get ALL THE INFORMATION I've been looking for, from a MASTER!"

"I want to speak up here and say that I am a better guitarist because of Chuck's "Blues With Brains" series.
He is a great teacher. Makes it all so logical and easy to understand. Thank you Chuck"

"It's a masterful work if there ever was one …!!
Highly, highly, highly recommended …"

"I am right behind Chuck.
This series is worth $500 of lessons Easily!
The stuff you learn from this man will last a lifetime."

"Super stuff, I got it and couldn't be happier.
$50 is just insanely cheap for the quality and quantity of really useful teaching we get.  Chuck teaches how to be MUSICAL, a rare concept these days IMHO of course.
This material WILL make you a better player, but beware, you can easily spend the next YEARS studying these concepts, they will take you a long way."

"After playing for many years and having taking lessons from some great teachers (including the late Emily Remler), Chuck's material help me to understand many concepts which I didn't initially get years ago. Although his approach is incredibly simple to understand, it is not understated nor washed down. I noticed my playing was improving, after some friends I gig with noticed and asked me; "Man, what are you doing? your playing sounds better every time we get together". If you put in the time, this material will change your playing and understanding of music forever!"
"This is easily the deal of the century! This material is incredibly deep and yet so elegantly simple. Chuck provides the right balance of theory and practical application, which results in improving your guitar playing skills and knowledge quickly!
I really recommend this material, great stuff! If you are a guitar player stuck in a pentatonic box and want to break out and expand your playing - this is the definitive material!"

"Hit a plateau, classic - country - jam rock, all great for 25 years. Wanted to learn more, like what are Carlton, Ford, Herring, Scofield…doing to get a more sophisticated sound? Let Chuck show you!!!"
"Viewing these lessons is like having a very cool, warm, friendly buddy come to your living room and patiently walk you through ways to grow as a player. Never met Chuck, but if I did, I'd feel like giving him a hug (no I have a beautiful wife). But seriously, unlike some recorded lessons where the instructor is either: a) annoying; b) blows through stuff that never gets explained and then assumes you got it; c) can't actually explain what they are doing; d) uses jargon that you don't know because you didn't go to Berklee and memorize all your modes; or e) has a goofy way of naming things like positions that makes sense only to the instructor, Chuck uses plain English and wants you to understand."

"Wow! So happy I bought this package! I have so much to learn now! Thanks for the great deal and for sharing your knowledge Chuck! That's the best $50 I will ever spend on lessons!"

Thank you Tim!
