There's no need to keep searching the internet for the one-stop guide for all bluegrass basics because Aaron has it for you all here!"

"I'm currently taking bluegrass flatpicking guitar from both Peghead Nation and Artistworks. Aaron Jaxon's 45 minute free lesson is on that level.  It will supercharge your  playing and confidence. Sometimes professionals are great players and not good teachers: but Aaron has a way of making the difficult seem do-able. Thank you Mr. Jaxon"-

This course is packed with so much information, tablature, step by step breakdowns, and references that I will be spending many hours in the weeks to come trying to perfect. Thank you Aaron, this course is awesome!

Ken Deifik

"Having learned flatpicking guitar from a million YouTube videos over the last four years, I am pleased to say that Aaron Jaxon's lessons have taught me more important skills that just about any of the other teachers out there. He has a knack for getting right to the point, often teaching skills I didn't even realize I need to know, skills that instantly took their place in my Bluegrass vocabulary"

Cliff Butler 

"I saw this "free: opportunity on Facebook and had already looked Aaron up and thought  I would give this a shot. I got more information that I had expected but, the best part for me was the cross picking and right hand exercises. I use them every time I practice. I am doing things now that I had never been able to do before. I can't begin to guess the value I got from following through with this video. It's a GREAT thing for anyone wanting to improve their guitar skills" -

Ed Baumae

"Aaron: I found that your FREE 45 minute bluegrass lead guitar crash course has the perfect mix of practice techniques for improving my lead playing with some nice fiddle tunes that bring those techniques int good use! You not only showed my solid techniques to practice to improve my playing skills, but how I could utilize them in actual bluegrass tunes. Your teaching method really helped me to get the most out of this course. Thanks for offering a truly beneficial course! 

Dan Green

"Aaron, thanks for much for the bluegrass flat picking crash course. I've played guitar for 50 years mostly rock and blues. After I retired I've been tackling other styles. Travis picking, modern country and even a bit of  jazz. Flat picking at speed is a challenge, but your crash course contains enough material to keep me busy for a while. highly recommend you as an instructor and thanks again for the material." 

Jerry Fitzpatrick 

"I am very grateful thatI found Aaron's free bluegrass flatpicking crash course. He breaks things down at a level that is easy to follow. He doesn't talk on and on and goes at the right speed for me. He doesn't teach too slow or too fast. I am learning bluegrass licks that I could never pick up on my own. I am starting to build my own arsenal of licks. I really appreciate you Aaron"-

Hal Meyers 

"Hey Aaron! I absolutely positively watched every second of your 45 minute free bluegrass flatpicking video lesson. It's absolutely incredible. What you teach, how you teach it is perfect. I was so impressed that I even forwarded the email with the link to several of my friends who are also looking to expand their flatpicking abilities. Thank you so much!"-

"Aaron, thanks for the free 45-minute lesson. your helpful tips are now part of my daily practice, and I use the warm-ups every time I first pick up the instrument for the day. That  45 minutes was SO PACKED with useful information. Many thanks to you and your solid teaching style. I'm making great strides in improving my technique. Even the members of my band have commented!"

"I recently came upon Aaron Jaxon's flatpicking crash course and what a great day that was (and is). He is upbeat, efficient in his lessons and explanations, and bottom line has excited me about learning bluegrass guitar and honing  my skills. So grateful."

Marc Davis

"Aaron's free bluegrass video lesson was outstanding. There was a great deal of information packed into this excellent video. The lesson included guitar tabs as well as sheet music to cover the exercises and songs that were presented. I've got weeks of practice ahead of me in order to get up to speed with all the information that was demonstrated in a easy to follow and well explained manner." 

John Lambie

" Aaron Jaxon starts from scratch and puts you on the pathway to musical accomplishment. I've played guitars since I was twelve, sung with many folk groups and performed on community stages in the USA and England, and Scotland, but never grown picking sweet tunes on guitar, mandolin or banjo. No more. With Aaron's simple steps and drills, his instructions have taken me from finger picking to adding new dimensions in leads and harmonies with a flat pick. Cheers, Aaron and big gratitude."
