I understand that this post may not necessarily be in the right place, i put it here because it is ideal for beginners, but mods, it may need moving.

I have recently been trying to learn to play the blues, and realised all i was doing for blues rhythm was the standard shuffle, nothing else to spice it up.
I have leared some superb stuff from the lessons on this site, and from other forum members. these videos though are also really help.

as a complete blues beginner it really brought me on leaps and bounds.

and theres more

a superb beginners funk lesson.

None of these lessons have anything to do with me, i just luckily found them, but as a self taught player, they certainly offered something really useful - i now feel although i dont generally play blues and funk, i now feel i can at least fit in for the odd songs in this genre's much more confidently.

also mods - i am aware these guys were removed from you tube (dont know why), if there is some legal thing going on here i dont know about, then this post may need deleting - ill let you decide that - but as far as i know, these lessons are free and used as adverts for their subscription site.

i hope at least one person here benefits from these as much as i have over the past week or two.

I had actually subscribed to the free thing that nextlevelguitar.com had going on for a bit. It was a three day trial to their site. They boast that they have over 1,000 videos or something outrageous like that but they are all like 2-3 minutes in length and you don't get much out of them unless you are a complete beginner...although it does seem in the past 6 months they have gotten a bit better judging by the videos that you sent the link to.

I think the reason that they were banned from youtube was that they were advertising that you could purchase their DVD's to learn particular songs by artists, maybe that's a no-no

I'm halfway through a seven day free trial at jamplay.com and, for the first time, I think I've found a pay-for-lessons site that does appear to offer value for money particularly if you pay for a year (works out 1/2 the price of paying monthly).
