Most likely, you’re reading this because you want to become a better guitar player.

Which of the following statements applies to you?

  • You want to add fresh repertoire to your playing, more Bluegrass and Old-Time Tunes, Celtic Traditional and Nordic Folk.
  • You’re an absolute beginner and want to learn how to play acoustic guitar, where do you start?
  • You know that consistent practice is the key to improvement but you don’t know what you should practice in order to move forward on your guitar journey.
  • You’ve played a bunch of flatpicking tunes but would like to take your comping and soloing to the next level.
  • You’re familiar with the fiddle tunes, but your local jam session kicks off with some fast tempos and you want to be included in the action.
  • You want to build confidence and improvise more on guitar, it’s a lot of fun... and you want to stand out when it’s your round to play solos.

“Listen folks!
I can relate to all of these statements myself, and with practice and training, I’ve moved past them all and you will too!”

“How Much Does The Guitar Club Cost?”

The Guitar Club is a membership site with a recurring subscription fee.  

The biggest mistake most people make is in thinking that they can find all the guitar instruction and inspiration they need free on YouTube and other places on the internet.

Or worse…

…by attending a couple of workshops every year at their favorite music festival and thinking that this is all the input they need to keep up their motivation on the “do-it-yourself” route.

Some players are clever enough to take a lesson every month from an experienced player, but that’s a little heavy on your wallet!

Actually, it’s just the opposite for me and if you’re anything like me, you’ll need:

  • regular inspiration (like our web feed)
  • studying in a non-distracting environment (unlike, YouTube!)
  • expertise from a knowledgeable teacher.

The Guitar Club is the perfect place for every player and we have the perfect plan for every budget!
