Truly, a great web site, many thanks for sharing your enthusiasm.

I’m happy to share … thanks for the kind words Ray!

Great site.  Thanks for all the help.  Already starting to learn a couple of the songs.  Most sites just show you the opening riffs and leave you there.   You take it all the way through so that an intermediate player like myself can work throught the song.  Looking forward for more to come.  Thanks

You’re very welcome Ken … appreciate the feedback!

Nice of you to provide such great guitar tutorials for free. Keep up the great work. I have been playing for awhile myself and I still learn from you Jackson. Can you tell me if the Puff The Magic Dragon Video will ever be available again? The YouTube Video has been deleted. Thanks and Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! God Bless.

Thank you … Puff is still viewable on the site here under Kids Songs.

You are most welcome George … glad it’s working for you!

Wow!  Your lessons are outstanding, no doubt from being an educator.  Great song selection and it seems like there is a new tidbit of guitar technique that I learn with every song,  I don't know how they could be better.  I'm having a blast on your site!  Even my wife doesn't mind me practicing anymore!  Life is good with freeguitarmentor.com!!!!!!!

Thanks Terry!

Hi Jackson,
It is great to see a website that is passionate about the guitar.
Your lesson instruction is excellent and I have added some more songs to my playing list.
Great site!

Always wanted to learn Del Shannon's Run Away. Jack made it easy.

Thanks for the kind words Mort!

Hi, I have received your two lessons on open and barre chords and I like the process you use.  I am interested in your premium offer but I am not quite clear on the charge.  There is a lifetime, one time payment of $99.00 and it references 200 songs.  Will this one time charge also allow access to future songs that may still be under development or will that require another one time payment down the road?  Thanks for your time and consideration.




admin March 9, 2017 at 7:43 AM

I emailed you a reply Dennis. Take care.


Carljoe October 23, 2016 at 6:05 PM
