  • Be able to do the absolute basics on the guitar such as strum a few chords reasonably well. Apart from that, nothing. It`s all here and waiting for you!


I`m not one to toot my own horn, but I want to be straight with you. I have a LOT of real world experience teaching people how to play acoustic guitar in the most enjoyable and efficient way.

Most of my eBooks have gotten dozens and dozens of 5 star reviews on Amazon Kindle and continue to sell at a fast rate. My courses are all extremely popular and have been sold countless times all around the world.

The thing is, I was once an AWFUL guitar player. I was really bad and I made loads of mistakes when learning. 

If there was something one could do wrong, I did it. 

I took me a lot of trial and error to get good at playing but I did. I hated the struggle at the time but I genuinely think it made me the teacher I am today. 

I care genuinely about every students` success and have all the tools and experience to help every one of you succeed. 

Learning and getting good at the guitar can be tough but join me in this FREE course and see that things can be done the fun way. 

If you are interested in fingerpicking, strumming and fun stuff on the guitar, then you will love this course. 

If you are a beginner or have played for some time and find it a struggle, you will love this course. 

This course isn`t like any of my paid premium courses. It is simply a best of what I do, ordered in sections. 

Go through it, section by section, but feel free to hop about. 

This series of lessons is me giving something back to the wider guitar world. 

I hope you enjoy this fun course and get plenty from it. 

Any questions, fire away. Unlike most, I`ll answer them all.

Thanks and keep on strumming!
