    This one with Frank Vignola.

    http://truefire.com/techniques-guitar-lessons/modern-method/

    This is perfect for me as I am an intermediate player just getting back in to it again. I was about to spend $50 on some other pc based lessons and decided to check out TrueFire first, and what a bargain man. For $60 I got a couple of hours of lessons with Frnak and a 425 page pdf to accompany the course, and something called "Inversion Excursion" a 50 page pdf dedicated to chord inversions. To say the least I am wholly impressed. I will be busy for quite awhile.

    What are your favorite TrueFire courses?

    Hey Jeff, just have to say I enjoy your DVD: 50 Blues Licks. If I'm not figuring out a song for the weekly jam I always throw in your DVD - if anything to just exercise. I know you get a lot of love and respect here, just thought I'd add my own.

    I just saw Frank play at a small private gig, besides being a great teacher dude is a MONSTER of a player and a really nice guy.

    As for Truefire courses there are soo many good ones some of my favs are

    Sweet notes
    blues/rock evolution
    caged cracked
    funk fission
    The 50 licks series Blues, Blues rock, funk
    Andy Aledort Kings of Rock/Blues series and his slow blues one too

    Ah heck to many good ones I’m leaving some out

    So far I'd have to say Fingerboard Breakthrough by Howard Morgen. I like how he teaches fretboard harmony and relates it to sets of strings. The solo arrangements of various tunes are collectively a sweet bonus.

    I have other titles but have yet to really work through them. I just started on Muriel Anderson's 50 Right Hand Techniques You Must Know. After I'm done with the "Can't Help It" project and my monthly church orchestra stuff, I'll probably try out Tim Sparks' Post-Modern Fingerstyle Blues. I suspect it might be a bit advanced for my meager fingerstyle ability, but I'll see... Either way, I'm also going to resume my study of Fareed Haque's Jazz Comping Survival Guide, as well as continue with Anderson's course.

    Thanks! Don't want to hijack the thread. All the TrueFire courses rock!
