Dear aspiring guitarist, congratulations on finding this course!

Have ever wondered how Eric Clapton, David Gilmour, Gary Moore, Carlos Santana, John Mayer etc. seem to have guitar solos poor out of them with hardly any effort?

Every note seems to have some kind of magic to it...

What if right now YOU could learn to do the same?

How would it feel if YOU could pick up a guitar and play a beautiful, soulful, guitar solo to almost any song? 

Just think how awesome your friends and family would think you are!

Or how about showing up to jam with old friends, and YOU start playing a jaw-dropping solo out of thin air!

Well, that´s exactly what this course is going to do for you!

You´ll realize within just a few minutes, just how simple playing and composing a nice solo-line is!

I walk you step-by-step through all the elements you´ll need to know in order to improvise with ease. 

You will also learn all about the techniques that will make the notes flow out of your guitar effortlessly...

Many videos have downloadable PDF files embedded into the video, making it super-simple for you to follow along at home or on the go! :-)

I´ve also included MP3 "backing-tracks," so that you have a really easy time jamming along at home!

Each short, intense (and sometimes funny) lecture helps you learn about different aspects you will need to make playing solo guitar easy and FUN!

You have the opportunity to become the guitar player you have always dreamed of. The teaching method in this course has been tested, and re-tested, on hundreds of real-life students and it WILL work for you!

Throughout the course, you'll have the opportunity to ask me questions and get quick support. This way you´re never alone, I´m always cheering you on!

You will also gain access to a PRIVATE facebook support group, so that you can make new friends, that are learning the same things as you!

By the end of this course, you'll have a clear understanding of how easy solo guitar and improvising really is!

You´ll be provided a 42 page picture e-book as a special BONUS. This is my way of saying “thanks" for joining the course. The book alone is valued at $50,- and it will teach you how to master the guitar fret-board in the most simple and easy way possible!

This is a no brainer, get in now and you will be happy you did :-)

To your success!

See ya on the inside :-)

He also has a constantly expanding YouTube Channel with over 8000 subscribers.

Henry is teacher proud about sharing his expertise, knowledge and he has thousands of teaching hours to his credit. He has trained 12000+ students to date and has consistently gotten 5-star reviews for his work. He currently teaches 15 guitar courses (all available on Udemy)

Henry is a guitarist passionate about his craft but there is something more important to him – impacting his students’ lives and helping them build their passions and their dreams. In his words, he describes his joy “Teaching guitar is more than sharing experience for me. I feel like I´m really refining my skills as a teacher, but more than that, there is no greater joy then seeing my students’ faces light up after playing something that they thought was never possible for them”.
In his downtime, when he is not providing guitar lessons or improving and honing his craft, Henry likes to indulge in his other passions; spending time with his family, skateboarding and yoga.
