Review from student Roh - Bendigo

So easy to follow along

Fantastic! So easy to follow along too, nice simple and easy to use! I had a friend recommend this site to me after trying to use other tutorials. It’s so straight up and easy to follow along. Im hooked and playing like I think I’m Bon Scott. It’s great to have short little videos, I can smash out a few every few nights. It’s very well set up for people with limited time.

You’ll be happy to learn and perform these songs to your admiring friends + fans. The songs included are all songs I regularly use in my professional performance repertoire and private guitar lessons. I know they sound great, and they’re perfectly suited to developing guitarists just like you.

Beginner student testimonial - Geelong

I had no idea how to play.

Amazing! I’ve tried other guitar programs but none went into such depth about guitar basics. Now I’m a confident guitar player ,even though I started with not even knowing how to hold a guitar or pick. I had no idea how to play. Now I love it!

Guitar Technique

You’ll learn all the foundational guitar skills including closed and open chord shapes, strumming rhythms and useful embellishments like hammer-ons, pulsing, riffs, hangs, stops, fills and progressions.

Vocal Training

Vocal training not only allows you to sing and play at the same time, but teaches you important techniques that further your guitar playing beyond the limitations of mainstream guitar learning.

Musicality Essentials

Musicality skills are the essential difference between robotic replication of learnt materials versus being able to deliver an emotive, embodied performance with an innate sense of timing.

Performance Skills

Dedicated lessons and tips throughout the online guitar course help build the skills required for students (including introverted students) to perform to an audience, no matter how small or large.

A Lifetime Investment

This online guitar course covers material that takes 1-3 years to learn through private lessons. Depending on how fast you learn, and how good your teacher is, those lessons alone would cost you $1,760-6,600. And that’s no guarantee your guitar teacher will be capable of giving you the same solid foundation that this course will give you.

Mainstream guitar education focuses on theory, scales and exercises. This isn’t the most effective way to learn to play guitar. Nor the most enjoyable.

The 8 Week Guitar Bootcamp takes you straight to the action. 

You start playing real songs immediately. What’s more, you won’t become another boring guitarist who knows a few fancy riffs – you’ll become a real musician capable of performing with others and entertaining in your own right. And that is much more satisfying.

Online guitar course testimonial from kid student in Ireland

Fidel's teaching is brilliant.

I tried learning guitar with other teachers, but I never got far because I didn’t click with them. They were either boring to learn from, or kinda mean. Fidel’s teaching is so brilliant. This course is so good, and the songs are fun too. I love that I have the freedom to learn whenever I feel like it. I can race ahead or take breaks and come back to it when I’m ready. Thank you soooo much for this course Fidel!

Learn Without Theory

a revolution in guitar teaching methodology

No silly tunes

Why do most guitar teachers insist you learn silly tunes and nursery rhymes you’ll never want to play in front of your friends? Mary Had A Little Lamb, Rock My Soul in the Bosom of Abraham, Aura Lee,  Kumbaya? Not in this course. Instead, you’ll be learning to play guitar through brilliant songs by artists and bands like The White Stripes, Iggy Pop & The Stooges, The Moldy Peaches, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Skip the theory

You can spend years trying to understand music theory, but it slows down the learning process (and the truth is, many of the world’s best guitarists never bothered). Instead, I’ll teach you to play by ear, like so many exceptionally skilled and renowned musicians do. You don’t need to have an ear for music to get started, I’ll teach you everything you need to know to play guitar with skill, taste and finesse.

All the skills

There’s no point learning to play guitar and never being able to share it. You’ll learn essential skills in musicality, song structures, vocal techniques and performance confidence to help you bring your love for music out of  your bedroom into the wide world. You’ll develop skills that allow you to play along with others, record yourself and perform live in front of a crowd.

Learn Guitar Through Great Songs

Instead of boring exercises, I’ll teach you how to play real songs by real bands. Here’s just a sample of the excellent artists whose songs you’ll be learning in this course:

Iggy Pop & The Stooges
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Paul Kelly
Harry Nilsson
Elvis
Ray Charles
The Moldy Peaches

Chuck Berry
Bruce Springsteen
Ron Pope
The White Stripes
Nancy Sinatra
Hank Williams
Cold War Kids
