Hey Blues Fans,

For several weeks I've been spending my nights and weekends using some new tools to restore and enhance old blues footage. I created a new YouTube channel to post these videos on, and this week I uploaded my 3rd full concert. You should subscribe (and click the notification bell) on the new channel to make sure you see when I upload new concerts.

TXBA Locals Testimonial

“I’ve been following Anthony for several years and bought several of his courses and became a local. I must say my playing has become more fluid and my leads are now based on a solid foundation of the boxes, the essential licks and my own style. I can’t give enough credit to this web site.”

-- David H. 07/17/2020
Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March, our Locals program has grown significantly. I haven't advertised it much because it seemed weird to try and capitalize on the extra time people had from being laid off from work, etc...
But, if you do find yourself with extra time on your hands. the Locals Program can help you make the most of it. If you want to take your blues playing to the next level, the Locals program can get you there.
