From there you can enter your own price and begin your studies. This course is actually worth the same amount as any college course or multiple months of real in-person guitar lessons so if you can’t afford that please pay that, I understand that not everybody can afford those rates and I really don’t want to disqualify anybody from learning music just because they don’t have money. So this is the honor system, pay what you can, within reason, without financially stressing yourself.
Being familiar with Jake’s videos, I had very very high expectations of his new course on rhythm. In the interest of full disclosure, I am not very far along in the course work, but Jake is teaching this from the ground up presented in a plain and understandable manner. If you are on the fence about purchasing his course then take my word, as well as the word from others. You will be pleased.
2 days into the course and I’m unlocking things that my brain has always stumbled on. Most online teachers ramble through their thoughts with random demos where you pause the video and try to imitate, but these are pro lessons – concise concepts, clear delivery, with exercises prepared and ready to follow along, and handouts for self-study. The kind of teacher I’ve always wanted.
One of the most imperative yet, mostly underestimated, ignored, and overseen aspects of learning music – Rhythm. Thank you for this course.
I was impressed by all of Jake’s Youtube video. Obviously this course is no different. This is probably the best rhythm course I have ever come across. I already start to feel the progress by exactly following his instructions. Thanks for putting this together.
