What Guitar Teachers Never Talk About

other guitar teachers never talk about this…

Not too long ago, fellow breakthrough-guitarist, Scott, shared a great story with me:

He said, “Last night, my 17-year-old son and I played together with him on drums and me playing the acoustic and electric guitar. You should’ve seen the grin on his face, and of course mine too. Thank you so much, I am so excited to continue and the bonus is, I get to spend time with my son.”

Wow. As soon as I read that, I knew I had to share it with you.

Because it’s easy to get wrapped up in the typical wins other guitar instructors talk about — like, so-and-so started playing faster, improvising better, etc…

(And yes, of course I like to share student success stories around that kind of stuff too.)

But I almost never hear other guitar teachers bring up these types of wins. The really meaningful wins — like getting to jam with your 17-year-old son, and have him actually enjoy the time together. Something Scott wouldn’t have been able to do if he didn’t feel comfortable on the fretboard thanks to the Breakthrough Guitar training.

It’s these connections that add a whole new layer of fun and pleasure to playing.

Yes, playing to challenge yourself is great. And that’s all some folks want.

But to a lot of players (and maybe this includes you)…

What good is progressing if you have no one to share your wins with? Whether that’s your spouse, good buddies, or even your son. 

Scott’s breakthrough on guitar led to something he’ll cherish for the rest of his life — more quality time with his son in an age of increasing electronic distraction.

I bet Scott would say whatever time he put into becoming a better guitarist was well worth it after that night. Wouldn’t you?

So share your wins with others, because you never know what it’ll lead to…

A new band with your buddies? A spouse who wants you to serenade them more often? Or a jam session with your children?

Whatever it is…

We just hope I can support you in your journey — that our training can give you the confidence and skill you’ve always wanted, so you can share your passion with those around you when the time comes.

Just like it did for Scott.

Top 5 Reasons You Can’t Progress On Guitar

Trying to progress on guitar? It’s hard when you hit a point of diminishing returns or, as we call it, ‘THE PLATEAU.’ A point where one might feel stuck and not get any results at all. The point where the curve is flat.

This can especially be harmful to sportsmen and artists, including guitarists, where the progress bar is measured on a subjective basis without any graph showing you actual numbers.
