Discover the things I wish I’d known 20 years ago. 

Fingerstyle is the most amazing way of playing the guitar. It’s like your two hands are a full band on their own.  


The trouble is that learning to play fingerstyle can feel very complicated when you are first starting out. It can be difficult to know exactly what to practice, and that can make it feel like you just don’t have what it takes to play the way you want. 


That was my story for a big chunk of my life. I always loved fingerstyle, but I thought it was either too difficult for me or that I didn’t have what it took to get all of the coordinations down. Boy, was I wrong. Over the years, I’ve proven that this negative line of thinking just isn't true, and I’d like to share what I’ve learned with you.


It turns out that the seemingly impossible challenges and bottlenecks of learning fingerstyle can be overcome if you have a good plan. 


Anyone (yes, that includes you) can learn how to play beautiful fingerstyle guitar songs if you have a fun system that doesn’t skip any critical steps. That’s exactly what we’ve done with the Guitar Fam Fingerstyle Masterclass.
