    "Best 40 bucks I spent! Been in a rut for almost a year now, and needed a new way to learn new styles, guitarLayer"s and its note tracker really helped me tab the best scales I've ever heard and now makes my practicing a lot easier! I do miss training by ear, but why not take advantage of such cool technologies?"

    "A great way for me not to waste my gf's xbox (I lost her to cancer guys :( ) and learn something out of it. I played a little in high school and is now trying to learn some fast jazz songs with upbeat rhythm, you know, just to help cope with the sadness."

    "Well every penny I could save up for while mowing lawns and throwing trash I spend on these lessons, and I have turned out to be a decent player, so yeah, while having a good teacher and a program is advantageous, it is still all on the fingers, the heart and the mind! Keep grinding!"

    "More beginner that intermediate, but still, a thorough look on foundation and depth in playing will get you really far! If you really think about it, Jimi Hendrix, SRV, God Mayer, and every good guitarist really play simple stuff but they make it sound amazing with great timing and progression, which I think we can all learn by SRV's example!"
