Al Thorpe Boulder, CO, USA

"I'm learning more relevant music theory with your course than I am in my music class at the college!"

Claudine DeCaudain Nutley, NJ, USA

Mark Stewart Lubbock, TX, USA

"Your teaching and techniques are so superior to any methods (or teachers) I have had in the past that I sometimes feel as though I have found some kind of holy grail."

Joe Robinson San Clemente, CA, USA

"All I can say is are you kidding me? I've spent close to $1000 on private lessons and have learned more watching 5 hours of your videos!!!! I'm quitting the private lessons this week and plan to use your method. You definitely have a knack for teaching this stuff."

Ray Copeland Westminster, CO, USA

Craig Dobyski Westminster, MD, USA

"I really am amazed at how much I know now. Not in a million years did I think I would retain all this information. I'm able to just talk and talk without stumbling or confusion."

Jake Burgard Portland, OR, USA

"I just wanted to let you know that your program will make a better musician of me. I can't tell you how much better I can see and understand now. It's kind of like a blind man seeing for the first time."

Ed McNevin Streamwood, IL, USA

"I've been searching for a program like this for over 25 years! I've taken lessons etc., but most of the teachers didn't 'get it'. This is just a wonderful product."

Don Hamm Carrolton, TX, USA

"I have never experienced such a fantastic overview of the area where I was weakest ... the modes. Your lessons made it very clear. I only wish your lessons were available when I started playing in the '70s."

Ed Fitzgerald Riverbank, CA, USA

"What I value most is grasping the understanding of music and how it relates to the guitar. All of your lessons leave me most satisfied that I'm on the right direction to learning my instrument."

Mike Raya Woodward, OK, USA

"I just had to write and tell you. I have learned so much! I actually blow people away at guitar center!!!!!"

Anton Weber Fairview Park, OH, USA

"I wish I had you as a teacher when I was 15. You have given me the confidence that I will succeed in learning to play guitar at last. The order in which you teach music is very practical and systematic."

Peter Hoffs Denhaag, Netherlands

"After 40 years of 'playing' guitar, I finally get it. Your excitement and ability to simplify every topic is exactly what I needed. You have given a 'pretend' guitar player a fresh new start. I can't seem to to shut my brain off or put down my guitar since lesson one!!!!!"

Lee Konkel Bothell, WA, USA

"I understand every word and the points you make are interesting. I like the passion you put into every single word. Oh, and the package ... very well laid out and cleverly organized."

Danilo Carnevale Milano, Italy

"I must commend you on your instructional course. It is truly comprehensive and professional. It provides a solid foundation for those guitar enthusiasts who are willing to put in the time to take their current knowledge and skill level to new heights."

Phil Martowski Vero Beach, FL, USA

"Wow! If only I'd discovered your program two years ago when I picked up the guitar. Thank you for your in-depth yet easy to understand 'reasoning'. I also appreciate the fact that you come across like you made the discs just for me. I make strides everyday."

Mark Grew Brush Prairie, WA, USA

"I was amazed at the vast amount of relevant information there actually is here. I like your developmental sequence and structure, the order, the lucid explanations, the fast paced delivery and the support material. There is far greater depth presented here than I ever had in private lessons."

John Baker Las Vegas, NV, USA

"Thank you for an excellent course. I did have a lot of doubt when I purchased it. Your course is well well worth the money. You could have even charged more!"

Tuan Nguyen Chicago, IL, USA

"I've reffered to many Guitar Tutorial Videos ...Rock...Metal ...Jazz from big companies like Metal Method to Gibson to Lick Library etc etc...but none of them could satisfy me what I was looking for ...UNTIL I Found Scotty West's Tutorials. He is the only Real and TO THE SPOT teacher. I wonder why not his DVDs did NOT gain popularity when it is 10 times better than others. I am sure all the big companies and Guitarist are Jealous of Him ...coz he is NOT money minded and fame minded like rest." Emptymynd   via the AUG YouTube channel
