I love listening to blues guitar, but when I try learning blues on guitar, I sound like I have no clue what I’m doing. It’s so annoying!

The biggest problem players face when learning blues guitar (that keeps you in a rut and not experiencing results) is this:

Wasting so much time searching for blues lessons and a guided pathway of learning blues online that you never actually play your guitar.

Sound familiar?

Learning to play blues guitar can be a challenging experience, especially if you don’t have an organized, proven method of study to guide you.

Have you had any of these common blues guitar experiences?

  1. You search online for a lesson to study, only to waste your practice time starting and stopping lessons that provide you zero benefit.
  2. You’ve learned some blues scale and chords but have no clue how to make those devices sound like what you hear on your favorite blues recordings?
  3. You spend big bucks on blues lessons and courses that leave you confused and frustrated in the practice room.

Over the past 25 years, I've played over 2,500 gigs, taught over 8,000 private lessons, and given workshops all over the world to guitarists of all levels.

I’ve found that most online lessons and teachers overcomplicate blues guitar, making blues difficult to learn with discouraging exercises that lead nowhere.

This is 100% not the case with my 5-Day Blues Guitar Challenge.

In this free course, I walk you step-by-step through my proven learning method guaranteed to teach you authentic blues lead guitar, rhythm guitar, and more.

With the 5-Day Blues Guitar Challenge, you benefit from my over 25 years of guitar experience, so you know exactly what to practice for immediate results.

Curriculum Outline

Each Chapter Has 1 Video, 6 Practice Schedules, and a Quiz

Learn how to use this course, why you should learn this material, and how to get the most out of your practice time with these lessons.

Start your learning off right with the most important and commonly used blues soloing concept in history, the minor blues scale.

Go beyond the blues scale in your solos as you add notes from “outside” the scale to build tension and release in your guitar solos.

This is the most essential blues rhythm guitar pattern by far. If you learn only 1 blues rhythm pattern, this is it.

Take your blues rhythm guitar chops to the next level with this Stevie Ray Vaughan inspired shuffle groove.

You now put everything together as you replicate a jam session in your practice routine. Have fun as you solidify and review all course material in this jam workout.

I show you how to best review this material and how to take this material forward in your playing. The next best step in your blues development is in this chapter.

Who is this Program For?

This course is for guitarists looking to learn from a proven blues guitar system and expand your rhythm and lead guitar skills.

It's for guitarists who:

  • Struggle to keep the form when playing blues rhythm guitar.
  • Use the same old chords and rhythms when jamming any blues song.
  • Want to learn a quick and authentic method to solo over blues.
  • Are ready to take your blues solos and rhythm guitar to the next level.
  • Love playing the blues but don't want to only play traditional blues.

I've played blues, jazz blues, and funk blues for 25 years, and have taught my blues guitar system to thousands of players during that time.

I want to share with you these essential blues guitar skills and provide enjoyment in the practice room with this 5-day challenge.


Who is this Course NOT For?

As your guitar technique guide, my job is to keep this course positive, encouraging, and welcoming for EVERY guitarist who joins. That’s why this course isn’t for you if…

  • You’re looking for a “Guitar God quick” fix. There’s no such thing as an overnight guitarist. This program is about building a long-term relationship with the guitar that leads with enjoyment and real growth – not hype or impossible promises.

  • You’re not a team player. This isn’t American Idol for guitar, it’s not a competition. The MWG Community is a safe environment for new and experienced guitarists to support and learn from each other. This is for team players who encourage growth in their fellow guitarists – not trolls who heckle their peers.

  • You’re a negative Nelly. If you like to complain, tear down, or argue with other guitarists just for the sake of it, this program isn’t for you. We’re about encouragement, welcoming new players, and positive, constructive feedback. No negative energy or comments allowed in this program.
