What Guitar Fam Members Are Saying
"I started with Nate when I was 56 yrs. Now at 61 am a solid intermediate and still learning even more."
"I purchased a 4-pack earlier this year. It was SO worth it! Nate is patient and fun to work with. Go for it!"
"I decided to use the modules in the BCM because I felt like I was trying to learn from 2-3 different places and it felt scattered. I also think this class is the best place to learn bar chords."
"Thanks to you and Nate for all of your support. I know that I’m a newbie but I love it here already, everyone is so inspiring. You got a wonderful thing going here and I’m in for the long haul."
"I would say I got really good at fingerstyle. and it really is mostly from the acoustic fingerstyle class. I‘m really fast now, working on adding melody within."
"A few years ago, I said to myself , I’m 60, and always wanted to play guitar; if not now, when?? I found Nate, Chelsea and @theguitarfam and haven’t looked back. I’m 64 now and it’s been a blast. Go for it, you’re not getting older your getting wiser!!"
"I've been playing the guitar for a while and am really trying to correct some bad habits and improve my overall playing. I am working my way through Nate's Strumming Doctor course and think it is just terrific! I highly recommend it. I return over and over to the practice sessions to provide myself with structured practice. The Bar Chord Masterclass was equally excellent. I also took a private lesson from Nate and it was extremely good. I also enjoy the monthly livestreams. I particularly appreciate Chelsea's comments about focus - choose one thing and work on that and you will get better. They are a great team!"
"Guitar Fam is the guitar/singing creation of an outstanding couple that supports each other in both music and life! Nate’s guitar lessons are the best I’ve ever found... online or live! His honesty and candour give the rest of us hope and encouragement that our practice sessions will eventually pay off! His lessons and teaching style (both my wife and I are retired teachers) are superb! I highly recommend Guitar Fam and anything past/present or future guitar endeavors Nate and Chelsea create!!"
We want to help you learn to play your favorite blues, fingerstyle, rock, classic rock, and folk songs on the guitar. Our step-by-step courses address the most important areas of how to play guitar and make this happen, but there is more to it than that.
We also want to get to know you and create a community where we can support each other along the way. That’s why we have the Guitar Fam forum, livestreams, student video reviews, the private community Facebook group, and unlimited email support. We want to cheer you on as you progress toward your personal guitar goals. It’s our goal to know every Guitar Fam member by name!
