Although I had been playing this style for about 2 years, I had never used my third finger when picking. Fortunately, I decided to stick with it and I’m so glad I did. Over a few weeks, I began to develop a lot more control with my picking hand.

Gene Student, Beginner Course

I have purchased so many books and online lessons, without a lot of success. I want you to know I wish I had had an instructor like you long ago. Of all the lessons I have purchased, yours are absolutely the best. I appreciate how you break everything down.

Christy Student, Beginner Course

I have started the course and am thoroughly enjoying it and it has really inspired me to dive deep into fingerstyle guitar. There is plenty to choose from in the course. Can't wait to see the improvement at the end. Thanks.

Brad Student, Beginner Course

I am now looking forward to completing the beginners' course and moving on to the next stage. But I'll not rush, and I will always be led by your early advice, which has become a mantra for my practicing; "Accuracy over Speed." Thank you for providing me with the rudimentary skills to make some music and play some songs.

John Student, Beginner Course

I purchased the course and I'm working on the foundations currently but wanted to drop you a message to let you know its fantastic, I'm having a lot of fun and making great progress at a steady pace, fingerpicking and strumming feels a lot easier to me compared to pick work.

David Student, Beginner Course

Chris' insightful approach is the next best thing to having live personal instruction. As a newcomer, I highly recommend the Beginner Course for newbies who are interested in getting a thorough foundation in quality fingerpicking from the ground up.

John Student, Beginner Course

I have been struggling to teach myself guitar and finally decided to sign up for a structured course. In just 2 days I have learned so much. Wish I'd signed up ages ago.

You simply need internet access and a guitar. The courses are not downloadable so you will need an internet connection good enough for streaming. All tabs are included as a downloadable pdf so you can work on these away from the computer if you choose.
