" I've been playing six and 12 string guitar (on and off) for 30 years, within an hour of watching Jag's video,

I learned more about playing finger style and slide than I've picked up from the countless books and competing videos

I've wasted money on over the years. I can't recommend or endorse Jag's video lessons highly enough. It's opened up a whole new style of playing for me.

Jag's video makes it simple. You'll learn most all of what you need to know about fingerstyle and slide in nothing flat.

It's a rarity that I buy something and it's a hell of a lot more than I ever expected. Most products these days are a let-down, Your's is just the opposite!

In short....Doughboy says "Buy it!"

Thanks again,

Ron "Blind Doughboy" Marr

I havent see the video he sell, but have picked up some cool stuff from his youtube vids. you can't get RL Burnside or Jessie

Mae Hemphill from anybody else that I know of....

Jag is the man if you want to learn to play CBG or blues!!

I have a friend who purchased a BluesBoyJag instructional playing video as an early Christmas present for himself. I just wanted to pass along that he

is raving over it. He get's lots of blues music and instructional stuff and Jag is right up there at the top of the list according to my blues playing friend.
