    I bought this course and have just started working on the lessons. TBH I'm doing pub jams only so I need to strengthen my blues repertoire. I suppose it's somewhat transferable for covers and originals.
    I'm digging the GUI interface, the tabs, speed control etc etc and Matt Schofield is a great instructor.

    I've been doing lessons on there for about 18 months, Blues and Jazz tracks. I found that the best deal is All-Access, for a year at a time.

    Very satisfied with it--and they update the lesson bank frequently.

    I dig true fire a lot there’s always a lesson to sink your teeth into

    But I supplement it with
    A print method. Books
    Right now I’m doing a daily training with
    Daily aerobics and 365 rhythm studies I do one each a day
    I’m noticing big gains

    Then when I go back to true fire at the end of the week
    I’m further along than I was last week

    I like it too, but all-access doesn't work for me. With that approach, I always feel like I have to be using it to get the most value for my $$$. Which causes me to put too much pressure on myself and start thinking of it as an obligation, rather than fun. I just buy a course when I see one I want to try - usually when they're on sale, but I've paid full price for a few. That way I have THOSE courses anytime I want them, I can take them at my own pace, I can use TrueFilre intensively for a week or three at a time and then back away from it without feeling like I'm spending money on something I'm not using.

    I found that the first year, I probably spent as much as I would have on all-access, but in the next year and the few additional months I've been using it, I'm spending much less, because I have such a large backlog of stuff to work through. Usually when they put new stuff on sale, I look at it but realize I already have plenty to keep me busy along the same lines. Occasionally I'll buy a course, but pretty rarely anymore. So it cost a fair amount at first, but very little since. And I don't have to think about how much I'm spending and not using when I take a break from it...

    I am a big fan of David Hamburger on TrueFire.
