Take your acoustic guitar playing to the next level fast!

Dear Guitar Student,

Even though the acoustic guitar may very well be the ultimate instrument, I get emails and letters from players all over the world who have the same problem.

Tell me if you can relate to this...

  • You absolutely love the acoustic guitar, but you feel like you're stuck in a rut, playing the same things over and over.
  • You know how to bang chords around a bit, but you really want to move forward with your acoustic playing. (And not just a little bit... but a LOT.)
  • You're not sure exactly what to practice, and you feel a bit lost.
  • You want a structured roadmap to get better on the acoustic guitar... and you want to get better FAST without wasting your time with unnecessary or tedious routines.

If that sounds like you,
or even if you're looking to improve your acoustic guitar playing for any other reason, then pull up a chair because I have something very exciting to tell you...

Do you want to know why so many people give up the guitar before they've really given themselves an honest chance?

It's because they had the misfortune of trying to learn from old-school teaching methods. (Can you say, “Mary Had a Little Lamb? Ugh!) Look, if you have ever gotten discouraged before, let me tell you one thing straight-out: It's not your fault!

I had one student tell me that he literally fished his guitar out of the dumpster because he found my methods to be so refreshing and enjoyable. Seriously! He began playing like he always wanted and you can do the same thing. (He wasn't the only student who achieved success after giving up, but his story was one of the most memorable.)

While our methods are remarkably fun, we utilize
a proven structure and teach solid fundamentals and techniques.

I make it a point in my lessons to leave nothing to chance. I'll show you every technique in detail, and I'll show you exactly what to practice. We teach concepts by breaking them down into bite sized pieces and explaining them thoroughly at regular and slow speeds. This way you never feel like you are being left in the dust or feel you have to constantly be working the rewind and pause buttons to catch all the details.

Plus we include on-screen text to spell out all the strum patterns, chords, and progressions. This makes learning so much easier to see everything spelled out as you are playing along and learning.

I can't stress enough how crucial it is to have a structured plan as you continue to climb the guitar staircase. On this DVD set we lay out the structure as if it was a connect-the-dots drawing, teaching you ALL the necessary techniques.

Many other guitar methods leave out this sort of structure or worse move way too fast. See, if a guitar teacher doesn't take the time to explain what to practice and WHY it's important you'll just end up frustrated and spinning your wheels.

Remember you just can't be practicing anything you have to be practicing the right things. My course gives you all of them.

What is mastering the acoustic guitar worth to you?

Look, I know these are tough times for many, which is why I've really slashed the price on this program. Ask any reputable guitar instructor what eight hours of his instructional lesson time is worth, and the answer you'll get is hundreds of dollars.

However, I'm keeping this 4-DVD set at a rock-bottom price of $99.
