Feedback & Overview
  Gibson’s Learn and Master Guitar course generally gets pretty high marks from students, in terms of what I’ve been able to find online. This is especially true of users who have appreciated the value of being able to progress through a comprehensive course, which takes care of beginners but also shepherds students towards more advanced playing.However, the cost ($149) is relatively steep compared to the competition, and for that reason I’ve given it four stars instead of five.

Actual Customer Feedback:

“My playing and understanding and appreciation of music has increased by leaps and bounds…You have to be willing to work but I can’t say enough about this course. It has transformed me as a player and increased my love of playing the guitar.”Actual user comment from Acoustic Guitar Forum

“It is a good course, and starting out as a beginner I can definitely say it gave me a strong foundation. Krenz is a good teacher. He explains things extremely well but his extremely mellow nature can make some parts seem kind of boring…It’s about being a well rounded player.”Actual user comment from My Les Paul Forums

“The course content is solid…it is not a shallow scam, but an effective and well-grounded course.”Actual user comment from Gearslutz.com Forum

“If anyone is looking for a good lesson program, I would not hesitate to point them in the direction of L&MG. The thing that sold me on it in the end…is their online forum community of fellow students, and Steve Krenz himself. It’s almost unbelievably friendly and supportive.”Actual user comment from Acoustic Guitar Forum
