Song Guide courses are exactly what they sound like. They are a guide to a specific song. Instead of just teaching you the song note-for-note, I teach you how to understand the song. You’ll learn about the progressions used, a detailed breakdown of the structure of the song, the rhythm and soloing themes.

Certain players learn faster by watching a teacher demonstrate, without all the talking. For those players, I’ve created several Quick Fix courses. Because there’s no talking, these courses present longer performances, broken down into individual licks. Each lick is presented at full speed, and then at half-speed, and comes with tablature and backing track to match. These courses are for self-directed students who know that they learn fastest by observation.
