written music and tabs are included with detailed instructional
videos which will show you the most important points for
learning the arrangements that I
play on YouTube.
The Following selections are available:
1. Bond Theme

3. Paint It Black
4. Dust In The Wind
5. Mission Impossible
6. The Shape of My Heart
7. Mad World
8. Hotel California
9. He's A Pirate
10. The Medallion Calls
11. El Condor Pasa
12. Chop Suey
14. Carol of the Bells
15. Ho Hey
Each selection is
divided into several segments, the amount of segments and run
time of each vary depending on the arrangement, the amount of
variations, level of difficulty etc... for example the "Shape
of My Heart" has seven segments.
These arrangements range from difficult to extremely difficult
so if you are a beginner this is not a good place to start.
Techniques to Master the Guitar
contains detailed videos which will give you the material and
exercises needed to develop the technique required to play the
type of arrangements that I have in the "How I Play It Videos"
and on YouTube. So far in this section I have the following:
1. "Intro to Finger
this section has six detailed video lessons for
beginners or intermediate students who are not familiar with
the technique of finger picking and covers how to pick broken
chord rhythms. There is also a trouble shooting video that
covers the most common problems people have when learning this
2. "Alternate Finger
so far there are fourteen detailed video lessons for beginner
to intermediate players that teach how to use the various
right hand finger combinations as well as trouble shooting
videos which covers the most common problems people have when
learning this technique.
3. "Alternate Finger
detailed video lessons so you can learn and develop the
techniques required to become an advanced player.
- Major and Relative Minor in Long Form" these types of scales are
absolutely necessary in the development of the right and left
hand technique for any one who wants to become a master of the
instrument. So far I have the four following scales
demonstrated for the left hand: C major, A melodic minor, G
major, E melodic minor.
If you're a beginner it is possible that you can start here.
If you're an intermediate player this is a section that will
give you the give you the material to increase your skills.
Complete Basic Rhythm Course
for the Guitar
detailed videos that teach the most basic technique of strumming
and reading rhythmic notation. This is a course I wrote in the
early 1990's to teach beginners as quickly as possible how to
strum so they could play and sing their favorite songs as well as gaining an
understanding of timing and rhythm that can be applied to single
note riffs and soloing. So far there are more than a hundred
detailed videos in this section including trouble shooting
videos that deal with the most common problems people have when
learning this technique.
If you're a beginner
this could be a good place to start if you
can hold down some basic chords. Even if your chords don't sound
good it doesn't matter, the main focus in the course is moving
the strumming arm in the correct manner, your chords will get
better as you continue to play.
If you're an intermediate player
and never had any formal
rhythmic training you may find this course very useful to hone
your rhythmic skills.
Classical for Beginner to Intermediate
classical is a great way to develop the best technique for
finger style guitar and this is also the next step after the
How to Read Music.
Through detailed video instruction the lessons in this course
are designed to take you from the beginning stages of technical
development through intermediate pieces.
