SATURDAY AUGUST 16 2019


UPDATE



SORRY, NO MORE DOWNLOADS  IT'S TOO STRESSFUL FOR ME

NEW LOWER PRICE 

FOR ALL MY WORK ON 10 DISCS

GETTING ALL MY WORK ON DISCS IS BY FAR THE BEST WAY. IF YOU CHOOSE OPTION 1 SPECIAL DELIVERY, THE ROYAL MAIL GAURANTEES DELIVERY.

THE SAD TRUTH OF IT

I'M STRUGGLING  NOW.  EVERYTHING HAS GONE WRONG THAT COULD GO WRONG.  SURGERY ON AUGUST 30 TO RELEASE TRAPPED NERVES IN MY ARMS.


IF ANYONE CAN DONATE TO GET MY ARCHIVES WHO DOESN'T ALREADY HAVE THEM.. THEN PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!


Small vessel disease. Arthritis in my spine. Diabetes. sleep apnea. TIA's. Carpal tunnel syndrome. Osteopenia. Severe flat feet. Failing eyesight. Clinical depression. And now surgery! I have watched everything turn to nothing. The good times are truly over! OPERATION IS NOW BEEN PUT BACK WHILE I GO IN THE SLEEP CLINC TO BE ASSESSED BEFORE I CAN HAVE THE PROCEDURE BECAUSE OF THE ANAESTHETIC! GUESS WHAT? THE SURGERY WAS CANCELLED AND NO ONE TOLD ME.. I HAVE WAITED ALMOST A YEAR. THEY SAID THERE IS A RISK. GUTTED!


NO MORE DOWNLOADS I HATE THE PROCESS. THE DOWNLOADS ARE HUGE AND THE STRESS OF THE WHOLE THING IS FUCKING MY HEALTH UP. I HAVE DEALT WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE DOWNLOADED THE TEN PARTS OF OPTION 1 TWO PARTS EVERY THREE WEEKS. 
YOU SEE, TRY AS I MAY, I'M STARTING TO REALISE THAT I'M NEVER GONNA' GET BACK TO WHO I WAS.



I have been poorly for the last few years due to bad health, because of this I have not been able to play my guitar much or produce any work to a standard I would like. The feedback I'm getting is that people would support me but they find the process of getting my lessons confusing. I will try to explain. 

Option 1 contains all other options and this process works with any option.

To donate:
Using Option 1 as an example : On the main web page there is a donation button and a currency converter for your convenience or if you use Paypal, my Paypal email is..
mybluestips@yahoo.com

Looking at the different ways to acquire Option1:



By post on 10 dvd discs:

The donation amount would be £50 first-class post or £60 special delivery UK only.



Anywhere outside the UK

£60 standard airmail or £70 special delivery.

Special delivery is by far the best way to get option 1 by post. Not because it's more expensive but because delivery is guaranteed.

I hope this has made it a little easier for people to donate for my work. Please remember that I'm just a regular guy operating all this stuff on my own.  You can email me anytime at

mybluestips@yahoo.com

HAPPY CUSTOMERS

Hi Ed,

Fantastic! Your playing is a joy to hear and watch. You have combined so many ingenious techniques into your style, which you convey is such a fluid manner. I love how you teach, so genuinely and without all the hoopla of some instructors. You could easily sport a superior attitude, with all that you can do. Yet you speak online as to a family member in your living room, not a feeble-minded newb with a credit card for a flatpick.

Thanks for passing on your lifetime legacy. I have aready busted some of your moves and give you the credit to those who will hear.

I hope you regain your health and can keep on making more brilliant music. In the meantime, know that you are being celebrated across the pond.

My best,

Priscilla




First, let me make you uncomfortable with some fan-boy adoration. Remarkable work!

I'm a seasoned vet on the electric. Playing since 1970. Gimme a song; i can play it [rock, country, blues & the in-betweens]. 

So i've wanted to get back to the acoustic. MAN, what a resource you are. Fantastically done and MONSTER licks and talent. Plus, you nailed the teaching technique. Superb.

Ok; enough of that. Down to business. Below you'll see a pic of my donation. You'll see me as xxxxx, a dummy email address I use. THIS email i'm posting from now is my proper address.

QUESTION - How do we download? Will a link be provided?

How is your health?

Cheers,

Doug


G’day there Ed. Just a quick email to let you know that the 10 DVDs I purchased from you have arrived here in Australia today ! Woo - Hoo !!! I can’t wait to get stuck into learning from them. Thank you so much for taking the time over the years to produce some of the best tutorials I have ever seen . As every one else says about you teaching style it’s like having a very accomplished ‘old friend’ patiently showing you step by step. Kudos to you Ed. May this email find you in good health, Cheers,Terry.

 
The reason for choosing your tutorials.. I have viewed many, many tutorial videos on the Internet looking for Blues acoustic guitar lessons. All of the which left me cold: they were boring, unhelpful, unemotional, etc. I've just viewed a lesson by someone who said he has played Blues in bands for 50 years! Maybe 50 years playing has burned away his enthusiasm, because there just wasn't any emotional feeling in his music. When I discovered your tutorials... wow! The music was alive! That night I couldn't sleep with all the rhythms going through my head. I really like the way you teach. In comparison, instead of the feeling of being in a classroom waiting for the end of class bell to ring, your tutorials are like your favourite uncle is showing you how to play guitar at the weekend. 
I'm really looking forward to receiving your tutorial CDs. 

Have a great day.

Regards,
Rod
