When I started with Alien Guitar Secrets, i thought i had a good understanding of music and how to play a guitar, having tried to teachmyself for 5 years. Not only did i not understand much at all, but i had no idea that i'd learn 32yrs worth of guitar secrects all jammed into 8.5 months! Now i can say after learning the tips and tricks, that you couldnt possibly teach yourself, but i can confidently apply these tricks to all types of music. In hindsight, i'd still be trying to work out how to put my fingers on a frett board if i hadnt called rob. Now i'm writing songs, with solo's, i can work out songs on the radio by ear and have daily epiphonies on how to improve my techniques. BEST THING I EVER DID FOR MYSELF!!!!!!
