If Your Ready to Get the "Skinny" on Learning Guitar
Quick then Your Really Going to Like This...

******************************

The 7 Crucial Things this Course Will Help You Do ...

Being a music teacher for 17 years I've noticed one thing ....

=> Things do not have to be difficult to be effective.
In fact, most would agree some of the best music is
easy to play
(3 chords). Am I right?? Simple is good.

When your done with just a few lessons you'll be able to
play some great sounding songs and apply what you learn.

This course will show you how to:

  • Quickly begin playing cool chords and songs (NO twinkle little star)
  • Figure things out by ear and create your own tunes with what you learn
  • Learn to write REAL songs with my fail-safe songwriting stencil
  • Easily get scales/chords and how to use them to play in any key fast
  • Avoid common pitfalls of learning an instrument and jump WAY ahead
  • Grab 100+ custom PDF's to help you better comprehend through visuals
  • Save $thousands$ in lessons by getting 'how it all fits together' 100%

You'll be surprised when you discover...

When you get done with this course you'll have a better
grasp on the musical system than most people get in a lifetime.

I am spilling the beans and not holding back anything in this course.

Just like the movie 'The Matrix', I'll plug you in so you can get it super
quick and start making headway like you never have before - ever.

I am NOT kidding...

Here are ALL the tricks and tips I learned from pros in the industry
taken from over 25 total years of total experience.

I considered leaving some stuff out to give more continuity,
but since I am about over-delivery I left it in and even
added some really cool bonuses for you too (some gifts inside).

I'm looking forward to your testimonial and enjoy the course!

Cheers, Stu

PS - The extra stuff (that will blow your mind) will shatter
any and ALL myths about what you think you can play! :)

PPS - You don't have to decide right now - take 30 days to
preview the course with Udemy's guarantee to ensure your getting
what you want and need out of it. :)

PPS - Do NOT listen to folks that tell you your too old <= thats b********t!

Who is the target audience?
  • Folks that are tired of messing around and want to cut through the smoke and mirrors!
  • Folks that want to really understand how it all 'fits together' and how to apply the knowledge
  • People that want to play better than most private teachers in under ONE year
  • People that want to take what they learn here and explore other instruments (the info in this course will show you this!)

Professional Music Instructor

I am an experienced music teacher of 17 years. In addition to the guitar I was also formally trained on the piano, drums, and bass.

I currently own my own lesson studio called Second Floor Studios in Grandview Heights Ohio. I normally teach up to 60 students a week. I love my work and most of my students are happy with the services I provide.

Over the years I have developed a method of teaching that tends to be unconventional but very effective in having the student understand complex, crucial concepts that help to guide them to empowerment.

I have always felt that most everyone possesses the ability to play music. Some my start late in life, but there is always time to learn how to play an instrument and find true expression.

Below are some testimonials from some of my students (and their parents too..)
