Scott we have lost a great Player in BB.
Your blues lessons are having great effect on my new found love of Guitar.
The heavy stuff of my youth has been fun to try and learn but the SOUL in Blues is so fun to play!

Scott - I've had a complete hard drive failure shortly after downloading your complete lesson package ordered April 15. I lost your lessons as well as the emial with the dropbox destination, ID and password. I'd like to request another shot (2 weekss) to download. If this isn't enough info, please send me a better contact email where I can give you more transaction details. . Thanks, Elston Wyatt

Seen some of your videos on YouTube... and, yes, you've earned my respect... was up late tonight and convinced myself I needed to get an instrument I can take with me any where to occupy my spare time... while waiting at a bus stop or in a doctors office... knowing this I determined to get a mandolin... there's lots of them out there, but with my finances I had to settle for what I could afford as long as I made damn sure I had a case for it so it wouldn't get destroyed. I just bought this one: http/

I'm just really getting started on acoustic guitar, both a Celebrity 6 string and a 12 string... and I feel that if I get more time in on freting and picking the better off I'm gonna be if I'm willing to put in the work... as much time as possible each and every day... hence I got this mandolin with what looks like a decent case... and a set up as well... so when ever I'm out the door... I'll always have something to be practicing on.

I really blew my wad to get this... and the referral from Ebay linked me to your site for the beginner lessons I'll be needing... and I think your $14.95 Special is what I'm looking for.

Since I'm so new to your site... I think it would be wise to humbly ask for your assistance to get the most I can for the money. I like the download idea a whole lot, I'm just concerned that my ancient computers would be able to access the material, my laptop is a Mac running OS 10.4.11 and my desk system is running OS 9.2, I'd be very happy if your downloads could run on both systems... other wise I might have to get discs from you.

For sure I want your Mandolin lessons, but also lessons on your Acoustic, 12 String Acoustic, Slide, and whatever else I can get on this $14.95 Special, even your lessons on Harmonica, if possible.

Please let me know ASAP so I can order, and how to order, that I'll have something to get started with by the time my mandolin arrives, on the 29th or 30th.

Thanks for your help,

"Sweet Tooth Johnny" Wells

Scott, now I have done it. I have commented something that you understood to be an insult. I am definitely NOT trying to put words in your mouth. Jesus H. Christ, how could anyone even contemplate doing that?
I have been complimentary to you ever since my first comment on one of your videos. I have used words like "intelligent" or "logical" and other words of praise. And I still feel that way, because it is the truth.
If I have said something about my bass guitars, that doesn't mean I have directed anything at you. Please forgive me if I have failed to communicate. Honest.

I would like to talk to Scott via email regarding sites bass lessons. I think the U-bass is tuned like any four string bass, but I'm not sure. I wonder if the site's bass lessons will work for me and my uke.

Hi Scott
Love the lessons. Could you do a lesson on double stops. Know you use some on some of your lessons, but would like to know how to use them in any key on any part of the fret board. Always looking to learn!

Any chance the JM150 patches are available for download? The Johnson users site is now gone (expired 10/20/14). Would love some help with my new amp - which I love, by the way. Good recommendation.

Just watched your vid on who makes the best guitar. Two things one is Samick make excellent ones,,,if you know which ones to get. Also you said never by if you are going to mod. Which is true to a point. I bought a genric Tele because the body and neck were excellent but I knew I was going to swap out the PU so I wanted to make sure I didnt over pay. It is now my go to guitar. it was a no name body and neck but really good quality.

dear Dr Groovy. thanx a million for your DMF videos on youtube. i know you get alot of grief over les paul talk, and i wanted to let you know you're DMF videos opend my eyes to all the problems i've been having ( i own a les paul). and as much as i liked to stick up for them (because their les pauls). you made too many valid points for me to stick up for the les pauls anymore. i appreciate the 'No B.S' attitude you deliver on camera. ive been watching your videos for some time now. your my go to guy when it comes to guitars. you say near the end of DMF #2 that you get alot of hate. i want you to know, im one of the few you mention who realizes your not out to piss us all off, but to help. So sleep easy knowing you did get the message across to somebody. P.S. love the T-shirt in DMF#2 haha.

Received my 32 gig flash drive for guitar last Friday only 3 days after ordering. That is fast service. Before I commented on it, I took the weekend to look at everything. WOW!! There is a LOT of stuff on there. It is all indexed so you can pick and choose which lesson you want and unlike this web site, you can pause or fast forward without causing the thing to crash.

There is about two years worth of guitar instruction if you took all of the lessons in a music store on that flash drive which makes the price I paid for it an absolute bargain and the backing tracks are thrown in for free.

The thing I have enjoyed most about both the free lessons and the flash drive is learning a lot of stuff without being aware that I was learning it. I put Polly webs on three guitars recently and as I did that, I cleaned the guitars. Without even thinking about it, I got a soft rag and water and cleaned them the way Scott says to do it. I put the strings on the way he says to do it without thinking about it. And eventually, I will play like he says without thinking about it. Watching, listening, then figuring out how to do what he shows on the lessons becomes second nature after a while and THAT is really learning. If you want to learn about guitars and how to play them, you are at the right place.

The other thing I like about these lessons, is that they are as if you are hanging out with Scott. It's like having a REALLY GOOD musician friend just showing you how to play and telling you a lot of related guitar stuff that you need to know if you want to become a good guitar player and know how to treat and take care of your instruments. The lessons are laid back and sometimes funny, just like having a real lesson with him in the same room with you. There is NOTHING stiff or formal about any of it and you learn without even knowing that you did. I have learned and I'm a DMF.

THANKS a bunch Scott. You dun gud son.

Howdy all. I'm still stumbling around on this site trying to figure out how it all works and have not accomplished that yet. But I like the lessons and have ordered the 64 gig or bit or something thumb drive Guitar lesson pack. I have a whole box of books and tapes and cd's from some well known pickers and teachers, but to tell the truth, UNTIL I watched the Basic non-scale Lessons to Learn the Whole Neck, it didn't "CLICK." Once I saw that lesson, it DID CLICK.

Okay. Now I under stand what Scott was telling me was that the 2 X 2x 1 pattern is nothing but the whole, whole, half step scale pattern. WHY in the hell didn't the others knuckleheads just say that? It REALLY IS TRUE that I learned more ( I actually UNDERSTOOD MORE) in that one 40 minute video lesson, or demonstration as he calls it, than all of the others I have over there in a big box. That box holds probably 8 or 900 dollars worth of guitar instruction stuff. It is good if you know what they know, but if you are a beginner like me, they start over my head and I never get to come up for air and finally drown in all of that complete crap they continually put out.

Now I can actually SEE the patterns on my finger board that Scott pointed out in a matter of minutes. NOW I have a place to start and am confident that I know where that place is, what it means, and how to make use of it. I have simply never had that before. What a breath of fresh air these lessons are compared with all the other bullshit out there.

I hope this is in the right place and I have not stumbled into a discussion. If I have, please cut me a little slack until I figure out how to navigate around here. And yes, I'm a DMF. Thought you would never ask.

Hello, Brand new to this groovy site. I had a question or two. first , is this where to ask the question? lol. second, suppose I got the thumb drive with lessons on it and I wanted to burn a dvd (so I can play in my dvd player in our front room is this possible? I have tried to do this before and it wasn't but then sometimes it was. Anyway I know , probably a dumb question (but its coming from a guy that's dumb on this issue). thanks.
