Does Learning Guitar Ever Feel Like
“Monkey See, Monkey Do?”

Monkeys can learn cool tricks, but they don’t know why!

Have you ever felt like you’re learning things on the guitar, without a clue why those things work, or why your fingers need to be placed in a certain spot?

Learning musical theory is the key to progressing as a guitar player. If I told you I knew a mechanic who had a great set of tools, but that he didn’t understand how an engine works, would you let him touch your car? Probably not!

Understanding the mechanics of music is just as important. Too many guitar teachers give you what to play (more tools) but don’t show you how it all works.

Here’s the REAL TRUTH that all the song-teaching guitar gurus out there don’t want you to know…

  • It is possible to learn WHY things work on the guitar… and its not hard!
  • With a little bit of basic guitar theory, you can be figuring out how to play popular songs on your own, in minutes!
  • The same system used by pro guitarists (called 1-4-5) lets you easily figure out all the chords in any key.

To learn more about this system of understanding the guitar, simply enter your name and email in the form on this page to instantly receive a free cheat sheet with all of the common chords in 5 different keys.
