Of course I love every lesson on this site, but even I recognize that certain lessons are wildly more popular than others. Out of my entire catalog of over 150 free lessons, here are the 20 lessons that the most people watched during 2013. EnjoyRead more...
This was my third trip to the big show, and it did not disappoint. I saw plenty of cool stuff and met with people I never see outside of these shows. First the gear, then the people.
This is just a sampling of what I saw, things that caught my eye.Read more...
As 2013 comes to a close, I wanted to share something with all of you that I think about often.
It matters to me that you know exactly where my head is. The success of this site outgrew my comfort zone long ago. I cannot explain it, rationalize it, or justify it.
I want you to know that my primary motivation is not new gear, money, or growing my minor internet fame. Those things are just side-effects of what really matters. What I care about is being a good steward of this impossibly perfect situation.Read more...
I am extremely proud to announce the release of my final lessons for 2013, and the last set of lessons in the SRV Style Solo Matrix - Slight Return.
As the name suggests, these lessons were create to teach you the style of soloing heard in SRV’s cover of the Hendrix song Voodoo Child (slight return). I’ve played along with that recording hundreds of times, and spent many hours studying his soloing on that track.Read more...
It gives me great pleasure to introduce a new set of lessons into the SRV Style Solo Matrix entitled Fly On.
You all know that SRV’s cover of Little Wing is an anthem that has been studied by guitar players around the world. I’ve spent more than a few hours studying that song myself, learning the nuances, trying to make my strings sound like his.Read more...
I don’t often look back at what has unfolded over the past 6 years. I think about it, but I don’t study it. But today is the sixth anniversary of my first YouTube video, and I wanted to create something that captures the fantastic story of this site and how it got to where it is today.Read more...

Here’s a brief update on what’s coming over the next few weeks at StevieSnacks. There will be a pair of Solo Matrix lesson sets released on Monday Sept. 30th.
Shooting Cold - in the style of Cold Shot
The Weather - in the style of Couldn’t Stand The Weather
Both are very popular SRV songs, and if you love those songs I’m pretty sure you’ll love these lessons. As with all the Solo Matrix lessons, each song style will be represented by 3 different lessons- beginner, intermediate, and advanced.Read more...
