    I have Dan Denley’s Lead Guitar Secrets DVD set and honestly (I have NO relation to him or his company) love it. I highly recommend it. It’s very casual in its approach and conversational. He shows scales in a way that make you look both vertically and horizontally, not just independent scale boxes. Awesome!

    I am the winner of that guitar, back in February 2, 2008. I just came across your website. We now live in Millington; come on over and try this sweet Martin out. Oh, and as I stated in my very sincere post, I ended up ordering 2 of Dan’s courses before I even clicked on the “enter” button of his contest. I swear I must have covered half of Michigan getting the vote out. If you want to win, sometimes that is what it takes.



    And Sammy is right about Dan’s style. Dan is a very humble trainer. I am not currently practicing like I should, but at 66, I still play daily. I also have Lead Guitar Secrets, Acoustic Guitar Secrets, Amazing Guitar Secrets, Blues Guitar Secrets, and a couple of others.

    Good visiting with ya!
