    I’ve seen a clip or two over the years and of course heard him mentioned among some of the best in that genre.
    I started one of his courses on TrueFire. What a great guy! I love him man. Gonna stick with it. Get my chicken pickin tight again. By gar it’s been a while.

    Hiland is a beast of a guitar player, man. I enjoy his playing a lot. He can also shred metal as well as his country chops.

    Love his course, he is very good at explaining what he is doing. Also comes off as a really nice guy.

    johnnys the best. He’s a walking endorsement but super nice guy, and really talented. He won a lot of awards when he was younger and became a bit of a child wonder/prodigy. He’s probably one of my top 5 favorite players and I think is still underrated. People like Brent mason and Joe bonamasa tend to get more hype but actually I think Johnny has done more than either.
