The Hybrid Picking Roadmap is designed to get you playing and thinking like a piano player. When you navigate the neck playing triads with BOTH hands, your whole neck shrinks and your voice leading choices become clear. Once you start, you'll never go back, never see the neck the same again.

"I never thought I’d be able to understand or benefit from music theory, but I love it and 100% recommend this to everyone."

Josh Leyden

I haven't felt this great about any personal accomplishment in years. Being able to navigate the fretboard the way I am has accelerated my learning curve 100 fold.

"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. "
