    Hello Guys,

    i am studying bgu 2.0 at the moment (lesson 15) and it really helps me getting a basic understanding for pentatonics and their use. I am so happy that i seem to begin to manage some musical understanding instead of just train my fingers.

    But i don´t really overview to whole courses i could take after bgu 2.0. Can you give me a tip where to go next? thanks a lot!

    John

    Narrow down what you think you want to work on. I'm pretty sure there is an overview for each of the courses, so once you have narrowed your needs down start viewing the overview videos.

    If you want to expand from blues into rock, then I can recommend Classic Rock Guitar Unleashed.

    The reply from Mike S is quite comprehensive, and spot on.
    I have most of the courses, but Five easy solos and Five more easy solos really got me moving, after I had spent adequate time on BGU 1.0 ,then 2.0. I'm now working on Major Minor and Slow Blues Supplement, which is probably biting off more than I can chew, but having the time of my life trying to do it. I love to play alone or with my band, we are working on 50 or so songs for a set list, but I always come back to my BGU courses each day.

    Hey Mike, is Griff giving sales commissions, now?

    You're amazing!

    But, you'd have to own some of these to know that.

    Lol, No Sales commission.

    I do own most of his courses, but I'm also an All Access Pass member so I have online access to everything (AAP is definitely the way to go if yo are in it for the long haul).

    If you could use work on playing rhythm to complement what you learned from BGU 2.0, I'd suggest strumming and rhythm mastery.
