“I’ve spent tons of time learning how to play chords, progression, and songs, only to find out that my strumming is sloppy, and I hate the way I sound. It sucks!”

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

Having a subpar strumming technique, which leads to frustration and disappointment in the practice room.

Sound familiar? Learning how to strum properly can be a challenging experience, especially if you don’t have an organized, proven learning method to guide you.

Have you had any of these common strumming experiences?

You spend a ton of time learning your favorite new song, nailing the chords, only to have your strumming hand let you down.

You guess at strumming patterns and technique, leading you to never quite playing songs you learn exactly like the recordings.

Realizing that your strumming is subpar and needs work, but not knowing how to practice strumming correctly in your studies.

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 strumming, making it hard to learn with boring exercises that produce zero results.

This is 100% not the case with Strum Like a Pro.

In this course, I walk you step-by-step through my proven learning method guaranteed to teach you authentic strumming techniques.

With Strum Like a Pro, you benefit from my 20 years of guitar teaching experience, so you know exactly what to practice for immediate results.


3 Ways Strum Like a Pro Expands Your Playing:

2. Strum Perfectly Without Thinking- Learn how to strum with perfect technique without thinking. Each exercise develops your ability to strum without thinking, allowing you to focus on dynamics, rhythms, the chords, emotion, etc. in your playing instead.

Who is this Course For?

This course is designed for guitarists looking to increase your strumming skills without having to spend hours a day in the practice room.

It's for guitarists who:

  • Struggle with strumming and strumming technique.
  • Have always just winged it when it comes to strumming technique.
  • Want to strum with as little effort as possible and maximum tone.
  • Don’t have hours to waste learning strumming in the practice room.
  • Want to be able to play what you hear in your head with clarity.
  • Are tired of not playing up to your full potential because of strumming issues.

I've been studying and teaching strumming for 25 years and have spent years on each strumming technique during that time.

I want to share with you everything I've learned about how to play with perfect strumming using my proven strumming learning system.


Who is this Course NOT For?

As your rhythm changes 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.
