His website offers a smattering of resources in the form of e-books and videos to help “guitar players and wannabe guitar players unlock their natural creativity and play guitar independently with their own sound”.
“Playing guitar is about expressing yourself through music – and you can’t do that if you spend all your time imitating someone else,” he says.
“I believe in playing guitar, which means playing from the heart: there are no drills or boring exercises in the way I teach – it’s not my style at all, and I’m sure it’s not yours.”
The range of e-books on his website is extensive and ever-expanding (available for just USD $19-USD $39) covering topics such as ‘Ear Training For Creative Guitar Playing’, ‘Creative Fingerstyle Guitar: Basic Accompaniment’, and ‘The Creative Chord Bank’.
‘Ear Training For Creative Guitar Playing’ is a 17-page book full of techniques and tips to help you hear chord sequences and melodies to play any song by ear, all without even needing your guitar!
‘Creative Fingerstyle Guitar: Basic Accompaniment’ gives you all the foundations you need to play your own fingerpicking accompaniment to any song, and ‘The Creative Chord Bank’ reveals a simple and systematic path to confident chord playing in every key.
His other offerings include tips for improving your solos, reading sheet music, unlocking your creative flow, and mastering the fretboard which is available for free for a limited time.
It doesn’t stop there, though, as he also teaches mastery of arpeggios, modes, accompaniment and improvisation through one single scale pattern with the ‘Positional Playing Power’ video course.
