What Guitar Fam Members Are Saying

"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!!" 


"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!"  


"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!!"
