Has anyone tried the Jamie Harrison lessons?

What's Hot
CleckoClecko Frets: 31
I noticed some of this guy's playing referenced in past posts, but nothing about his online courses. They're not cheap at £30 per song (savings when buying bundles), but I stumbled across the video below after finding a great 'Mayerish' clean tone for my Helix and looking for some instruction on how to play a couple of his songs.

I'm not much a fan of John Mayer, but this rendition of Slow Dancing in a Burning Room is jaw-dropping. Has anyone learned songs from Jamie Harrison's lessons as I'm interested to hear whether he's as good at video teaching as he clearly is at playing?

    I actually play that version in the car - it really is exquisite.

    I am in same boat as you, £30 for one song seems a bit overpriced
    Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.

    Not sure it's overpriced - £30 isn't so much if it's a really well put-together lesson with high production values and if he teaches as well as he plays, but it would be useful for him to include a 5-10 minute sample of the video lesson.

    Really? I much prefer that rendition to the original song. Much more like the way it's played live, which is the only time I find John Mayer's music palatable.

    Thanks! I had taken a look at that already and it is good - esp. for free - but doesn't include all the sections and I really like the way Jamie Harrison plays it.

    I don't know the guy and it's not particularly the music I'm interested in,  but I have to say, 30£ is not that much as long as the quality of the lesson is high. I've had quite a few face to face lessons for nearly as much money with various teachers just going through the tabs downloaded of the internet, I have learnt much(if anything ) that way.

    I just get upset when I watch his videos, as I realise I’ll never be able to play and sound that good :s
