    Anyone ever see his guitar lessons on youtube? He seems to be very strict / a purist with his teaching methods. I watch him from time to time ,I'm sure he is an excellent player,but I don't have the time to practice that he says is needed to be a great player.I was playing along with him today for a good while.I check out many learning sites .Anybody have any other sites they recommend?

    I find Pepper Brown entertaining although a little coarse for my sensitive and delicate nature. He has a lot of good information.

    I like him. He can be kind of mean and insulting at times, but I think it's intended to drive the lesson recipient to succeed. I've also seen videos of him teaching live students, and he's totally nice and informative. Just finished watching http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jK-jr2AkMQ4 He does a beginning music theory review for about four students. One girl asks a lot of what some may call dumb questions, but Pebber never gets upset or noticeably annoyed. It was a good lesson for learning to read music.

    I get a laugh out of reading his response to youtube comments. One guy asked, "Hey Pebber, I'm in a 3 chord folk band and want to add some cool fills and inversions to the songs, how do I do that?"

    Pebber's answer- "Study guitar"

    He's not wrong...

    Edit: Suggestions for other sites? Depends what you are into. I really like the jazz guitar forum, introduces me to a lot of interesting ideas. Getting a couple good books is a great idea too. I'm sure if you state your learning goals, you can get a lot of good suggestions here.

    I'm going to go to youtube right now and watch some more of his lessons.They are usually long videos.He can be a little rough with his statements though.But I think he is just trying to let the students know that they need to practice to get better
