"After a lifetime of playing guitar and learning through playing and intuition, the Guitargate lessons are a revelation. Now I do understand a lot more theory, especially which chords belong to what key. "

8 Level Guitargate CORE Curriculum

The Guitargate CORE curriculum is a 20 year culmination of being a student, teacher, and professional player. It's what I call "a practical application of music theory." 

Quite simply: it's my life's work and it will make you comfortable anywhere on the neck, in any genre.  Step-by-step, beginner to advanced.

The Jam
 Band Primer

Band Essentials

This is for all of you Dead fans, as well as those who feel stuck playing over changes. The key is to use SIMPLE melodies to connect triads and dyads.  

Jerry's playing changed my approach to the guitar forever, and I'm so excited to share what I've learned. 

It’s about becoming a “third hunter”.

Guitar Training Course
The Guitar Training Course

The difference between exercising and training is like running 30 minutes vs preparing for a marathon. Or a boxer getting ready to fight. 

It's about doing more than you think you can, and not giving up when it gets hard. 

Come train with me and start stacking those wins!
