"I’ve tried to learn fingerstyle guitar, but the exercises were either too easy and boring or WAY too difficult I couldn’t get started. I’m ready to give up!"


The biggest problem you face when learning fingerstyle (that keeps your playing stuck in a rut and not seeing results) is:


Learning how to fingerpick properly without spending hours on pointless and boring exercises that make you dread practicing.


Sound familiar? Learning fingerstyle guitar can be a challenging experience, especially if you don’t have an organized, proven method of study to guide you.


Have you had any of these common fingerpicking learning experiences?


You’re tired of boring, repetitive, and uncreative exercises that produce zero results in your playing.


You learn fingerstyle songs or patterns, but your technique causes your hands to tire quickly, preventing you from enjoying playing.


You can fingerpick to a decent level, but your tone sounds thin and you flub notes that you know you should be nailing.


Over the past 25 years, I've played over 2500 gigs, taught over 8000 private lessons, and given workshops all over the world to guitarists of all levels.


I’ve found that many online courses and teachers overcomplicate fingerstyle guitar, this makes it difficult to learn with boring exercises that produce exactly zero results.


This is 100% not the case with Fingerstyle Essentials.


In this course, I walk you step-by-step through my proven learning method guaranteed to teach you authentic fingerpicking skills and concepts.


With Fingerstyle Essentials, you benefit from my over 25 years of fingerpicking experience, so you know exactly what to practice for immediate results.

Who is this Course For?


This course is designed for guitarists looking to increase your fingerpicking skills by playing with efficient and effective fingerstyle technique.


It's for guitarists who:

  • Are tired of fumbling with fingerstyle songs.
  • Love fingerpicking and are ready to dive in and play in this style.
  • Have been guessing when it comes to playing fingerstyle techniques.
  • Hate boring, repetitive, fingerstyle exercises.
  • Want to play fingerstyle guitar to the best of your ability.


I've been studying, teaching, and playing fingerstyle guitar for 25 years in classical, blues, rock, folk, and jazz styles.

I want to share with you everything I’ve learned about how to play authentic fingerstyle guitar so you can reach your musical goals quickly.

 

Who is this Course NOT For?


As your Fingerstyle Guide, my job is to keep this course positive, encouraging, and welcoming for EVERY guitarist who joins. That’s why this course isn’t for you if…

  • You’re looking for a “Guitar God quick” fix. There’s no such thing as an overnight guitarist. This program is about building a long-term relationship with the guitar that leads with enjoyment and real growth – not hype or impossible promises.

  • You’re not a team player. This isn’t American Idol for guitar, it’s not a competition. The MWG Community is a safe environment for new and experienced guitarists to support and learn from each other. This is for team players who encourage growth in their fellow guitarists – not trolls who heckle their peers.

  • You’re a negative Nelly. If you like to complain, tear down, or argue with other guitarists just for the sake of it, this program isn’t for you. We’re about encouragement, welcoming new players, and positive, constructive feedback. No negative energy or comments allowed in this program.
