As someone has resurrected the thread, I'll update too: I signed up for the 'Sherpa' program they do - it costs as much as real/local lessons would but imho is more effective for me.
I'm in Jeff McErlain's group and highly recommend it and him : http://truefire.com/guitar-sherpa/sh...ss.html?id=224
They've got a brand new Robben Ford course - quite a coup : http://truefire.com/robben-ford/
Fareed Haque has a Truefire disc out which might be worth a look if anyone here is into funk / fusiony stuffs.
EDIT: Just bought both the Fareed Haque lessons!

Will be interesting to see if anyone buys this and how they find it.
I am working through "Fingerboard breakthrough" It cost me £18 and comes with a 132 page manual (on PDF) and I have to say a very very good instructional course.
OK sometimes I think his guitar was out of tune and some of the songs he uses are Cheesy , but he really gets the point across. If you want to learn your way around harmonically this really is the best I have seen.
I got a lot of " OH I See it now " moments.
Can't afford Robben Ford course yet...
The Fareed lessons are great. I got his jazz comping and jazz rock workshop. The jazz rock workship he concentrates a lot on pentatonics, adding notes and pentatonic substitutions. He also talks about how to simplify chord changes by using pentatonics, kind of along the same lines as Steve Khan and Pat Martino.
Jazz Comping is very good too. He talks about substitutions, guide tones and what not to play.
That's awesome Tim :) Will have to check that one out once I get through this one!
Just bought Jazz up your blues.
Was about £13 once the discount was applied.
Feel compelled to join - lots of excellent stuff there ...
Just need to find another 5 hours in a day to practice.. :(
