Get all the guidance you need to build a solid foundation in your guitar playing, from learning your favourite songs, to spotting bad habits, and a detailed practice plan to get it all done.
Why did I make this course?
I created this course to help beginner guitar players tackle these common problems:
"I can't change chords fast enough, and I can't get through a song"
"I find it hard to play in time"
"I can't get the strumming right"
"I find myself overthinking and everything falls apart"
"I can play, but when sing along, it all goes kaput"
This course was created to solve these problems, and many more.
It was made with the struggling beginner in mind, as something to fill the gap between in-person lessons, or as an effective alternative to in-person lessons.
If you took a 1 hour guitar lesson a week, and practised for 30-minutes a day, then 78% of your practice time would be self-monitored. And that's where the real difference in progress is made - at home.
“The best – i.e. thoughtful, well-prepared, insightful, and encouraging – guitar teacher I have encountered, by some distance.”

Is it really possible to learn guitar online?
If you're learning on YouTube, you might be able to pick up a few things, but it's likely you're picking up bad habits along the way. There's also no thought-out structure to the learning on YouTube, and it's difficult to separate the good teachers from the bad. Everyone's a teacher on YouTube!
If you've tried learning online but struggled to get very far, then this course is designed for you. When there's structure, support, and accountability, your chances of success are much higher.
In fact, I would even say that it's better than in-person lessons. Here's why:
A Course for the Busy Beginner
I wanted to make this course something that even the busiest person could fit in.
All you need to do is log in, hit play, and follow my clear instructions.
This is very much a beginner course, so I assume you've never picked up a guitar, and we go right from the basics. After finishing the course, you'll be playing songs with confidence.
If you can already play chords & strum songs with confidence, without stopping, stalling, or crashing, this course probably isn't for you.
On the other hand, If you're a beginner who wants to get the best start on guitar, without developing bad habits, then this course is definitely for you.
Hi, I’m Chris. I've been a guitar tutor in Leeds, UK & online since 2014.
I help busy beginners & self-taught guitar players play their favourite songs, without developing bad habits. Once you can get through songs, I can help you train your ears & free up the fretboard.
I also write, record & tour with Team Picture, a Leeds-based Alternative Rock group. You probably haven't heard us, but our music's been played on BBC 6Music, BBC Radio 1, and a Netflix series. I've also done TV work as a solo performer, recording acoustic guitar for ITV's Girlfriends series, which aired in 2019.
This is a limited pre-launch offer, so you'll get exclusive access to the course, before it's released to the general public. I'll be working closely with you as you go through the lessons.
First, you'll fill out a short questionnaire to make sure I understand your goals & struggles.
At the end of the course, there will be a feedback form, which helps me make improvements to the course. As a beta tester you'll get free lifetime access to the updated versions of the course, even if the price goes up!
If you have any questions, you can post a comment at any time.
I can't wait to see you inside the course!
