As I said above, I've taken some SKYPE lessons with Robert and he is a really nice guy. I'm also a lifetime member of Master Guitar Academy. The only issue that I have with Robert is he sometimes has difficulty, at least it seems, "dumbing it down" enough for me. So obviously this is an issue of where I am at in my learning rather than Robert's teaching ability. Perhaps Robert is better suited to an advanced intermediate learner rather than a late beginner. My plan is to step away from Robert's courses/forum/lessons for a while. I'm going to continue to work BGU, SARM and Corey's material for a while. Then revisit Robert's materials sometime in the future when I have progressed some. Of course, at my current rate that may be 37 years from now. But that's the plan.
