Did anyone with Steve's Blues course end up buying Griff Hamlin's Blues unleashed course?

Add me to the list as well. I'm not unhappy that I have both. Quick (personal) analysis is that Griff's course is tailored a bit more for the newer player, Steve's assumes you already know a lot. YMMV but that's my opinion

Thanks, I am making a couple of assumptions. First, I am assuming that the Blues Unleashed starts where his beginner course leaves off. Second,  I see that Hamlin also has a rhythm course. So I am assuming his Blues Unleashed course doesn't have much on rhythm. 

 

Imoranti, if you read this I am curious about PTSM?

I have Steve's course but don't have Griff's but looking at it..

 

Steve K's course relies on your knowledge of scales and specific notes on the fret board.

Best advice for Steve's course is to memorize all the notes in the Am-Cmaj 5th position, that's about 30 notes on the fret board,

You really need to know those locations well.

As Steve might start you off on the 3rd string 5th fret C and he'll say OK now play the flatted 3rd or flatted 5th.
And you better know where they are in that 5th fretting position or you'll be lost quick.

Thanks, I still have session 5 and  6 to finish. I can tell by going  through session 6 that I am going to need some additional help and a few years. There's a big gap between session 5 and 6 that needs to be filled So, I guess I will try Blues Guitar unleashed and his Rhythm course.

I'd probably buy Griff's if I had the time to work on it

Anyone know the difference in Griff's courses
Bigginer Blues Vs Blues Unleashed?

The big difference in BBG and BGU is that BBG is geared for somebody who has no experience with a guitar. BGU is actually a continuation of BBG. If a person can play a few basic open chords and can read tab, I would say you could start with BGU. I believe he says at the beginning it is not designed to teach theory but rather just how to play the blues. The first 15 lessons are all about strumming using the chords and strum patterns one use for the blues. Griff does not assume you know a lot guitar scales or boxes, they are covered in the later part of the course. I don't anything about Steves course but from what I have read here on this forum you would need to be about way through LM&G before starting it, of course I may be wrong about that. In any case I am having a lot of fun BGU and LM&G.

yes

For the Record.........I did not address "The title of this thread" with my "yes" answer. I addressed the question asked by the author! 

 

I use other material by other artists as tools to supplement my guitar learning journey.......they are all of value and I appreciate what each brings to the table to help me learn. It should not be and it is not a Griff VS Steve!!!!!

I agree with you completely. I don't think the thread here was Steve vs Griff but rather a discussion on different materials used in learning process. The courses are different by 2 different teachers, each has value. What value each has is up to the user and what that person wants to learn and accomplish.

I have Steve's blues course and some other materials as well.  I've never been one to pick out a single course/reference to the exclusion of others.  Seems they each have something unique to help light the bulbs.

I have Steve's blues course and have finished through session 3 - half way.  I have put it down for now as want more help with soloing than Steve provides.

 

I also have a number of Griff Hamlin's courses, including BGU, 52 Rhythms and Fills, Blues Gig in a Box, 5 Easy Blues Solos, etc.  I enjoy Griff's teaching style and approach to soloing.  I also attended one of his BGU Live events where you get to jam with others on stage with his back line. Griff has a 365 day return policy on all of his courses, so no risk in any purchase.
