Can somebody please explain why we only have access to 4 Artist Lessons in Australia, when they have access to 8 in the US.

I was interested in getting some guitar Artist Lessons, but the only guitar lesson I can access is John Fogerty.

Apple shouldn't advertise stuff on the Australian website that isn't yet available in Australia.

Oh really?? I did not realise that this was the case.

Out of interest, who are the other 3 artists?

- Norah Jones (Piano)
- Sara Bareilles (Piano)
- Ben folds (Piano).

It usually has to do with the publishing rights. Its not Apples fault its the greedy publishing companies who own the rights to the artist tracks. Apple could be a bit more sensitive about letting us know what is available before we buy. I just hope the library of lessons expands in the near future.

As an aside the Ben Folds piano lesson is worth every cent. Lots of fun. I highly recommend it (5 star).

Thanks for the heads-up, I will give it a try.

There are now file lessons available, as another John Fogerty song (Fortunate Son) has been added.
