“With Harry’s enthusiasm and style of presentation it would be difficult to be swayed from wishing to learn from these courses. I purchased access to both courses, wishing to secure as much information / tuition available. I recommend both Harry’s tuition and the courses to all interested students of guitar.” (A. Mowatt)
“This course has everything you need to get you started playing gypsy jazz style lead. It is suitable for both the beginner and the more experienced player coming from another style.
All the fundamental techniques are expertly covered. I found the course very well paced and structured, with the lessons well focused on the topic under discussion. The clarity of the content is admirable and obviously the product of considerable effort. I also think the emphasis on ear training sets this course apart and would benefit anybody who seriously wants to master the style.” (R. Bartlett)
