The fast track to learning guitar is here! The only guitar method like it!

Methodology

My guitar methods include a 'rhythm first' approach, as well as using basic chords and scales, building song structures, chord structures and guitar solos, 'part by part', which gives the learner confidence and a willingness to continue learn, and get better and better.

Background

I am a 16 year professional instructor in the entertainment industry, have been playing guitar and writing songs since 1984, have toured with a band, played hundreds of shows and have invented a new method for learning guitar in less time.
