Mace, what fingerpicking songs do you offer?

Reply

Fingerpicking is not a style that is featured often on Song Mentor. There may be a few selections, but the majority teach pick/strum technique.

              After all I've read on your comments I believe that you my friend are a great TEACHER

I do come from a family of entertainment ; I for one would love to join, but at my financial demise I am straped..you are indeed one hell of a teacher ..I've seen your videos (just great)…I am a Vietnam Nam Vet and a lot of your songs that you teach bring me back to the days when my buddies and I could hardly wait to get back home…..God Bless you my man…keep on playing…wish I could afford you….

Hi Jackson Just joined took the Mid Summer Offer well actually about 2 1/2 hours ago the price did put me off in the past. What have i been missing?  Money well spent i have spent loads in the past on other guitar tutor sites. As you can see was going to take a look for about 5 minutes nearly 3 hours later? Brilliant know most of the songs revived my interest can't put my guitar down now. How about CCR long as i can see the light. Keep up the brilliant work, song mentor for ever now.

Hello Jackson, I just finished the lesson for " I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry" It brought back a lot of memories from 1966. I agree with your comment about the B.J. Thomas version being the best. As always, the lesson as great. I appreciate your teaching techniques. I started playing about a year ago, at age 65, and love every minute of learning to play. Looking forward to future lessons.

Sincerely,

Dave McKinnon

You present such a pleasant way to learn guitar and I like the little bit of history that you present on each song . It's been only a short while and my fingers are sore and getting calloused . I love your site and it's a pleasure to have a fellow Canadian teach such a nice variety of songs . Keep them coming Jackson .

I'm posting this to say a massive thanks to Jackson. He really makes learning the guitar so much fun. As a teacher myself I think the ease with which he approaches teaching the chords and strumming patterns/techniques is really impressive. Not only that the man has real and genuine soul…love the intros to the lessons and the bit of background. This is very good value for money and I wish Jackson much success with the programme. He deserves it. If you're kinda suspect and unsure don't be….you won't regret it. Thanks Jackson and greetings from the Emerald Isle (Ireland) :) If you ever come to Ireland give me a shout and I'll show you around Dublin :) – Tom

Jackson,

I was a professional for years, back in the 60s-70s, and haven't played guitar much in the last 30 years.  I just retired from my own CPA business after 45 years and took the gutar back up.  I am playing professionally again on a limited basis.  I joined your premium songmentor group about five months ago and am just thrilled with your style of guitar lessons.  Everything you are looking for, the lyrics and chords, an excellent guitarist (you) teaching the rifts, the strumming,  and the vocal parts, it's all so comprehensive and organized.  You have developed a wonderful system for guitar lessons here, and I look forward to relying on you for mentoring for a long time to come.

Your interpretation of You Cant Do That riff is fantastic! This the first Beatles song I heard long-long time ago so it means a lot to me. Your friendly and cheerful teaching manner is appealing. I think your tutorials are useful both for beginners and those having guitar expertise. Steady as you go, Jackson, good luck!
