“I’ve learned how to play scales, arpeggios, chords, songs, and more, only to find out that my hammer-ons are sloppy. They sound terrible. Total bummer!”

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

Having a subpar hammer-ons technique, making everything difficult to play, leading to frustration and sloppy performances.

Sound familiar? Learning how to hammer on properly 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 hammer-on experiences?

You work so hard to get done a new riff, scale, or song, etc. only to have your sloppy hammer-on technique ruin all that hard work as you miss notes every time.

You find your fretting hand tiring out much too quickly, preventing you from enjoying your time playing guitar because of improper hammer-ons.

You’re tired of playing with poor hammer-on technique but you feel you need hours a day to fix your chops. Who has that kind of time?!

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 hammer-ons, making it difficult to learn with boring exercises that produce exactly zero results.

This is 100% not the case with Fretboard Fundamentals – Hammer-Ons.

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

With Fretboard Fundamentals – Hammer-Ons, you benefit from my over 20 years of guitar teaching experience, so you know exactly what to practice forimmediate results.


3 Ways Guitar Fundamentals – Hammer-On Improves Your Playing:

1. Learn Proper Hammer-Ons Without a Huge Time Commitment - Developing rock-solid hammer-ons can be achieved in as little as 10 minutes per practice session. Master hammer-ons without sacrificing your practice or free time.

2. Hammer-Ons Perfectly Without Thinking - Learn how to hammer-ons with perfect technique without thinking. Allowing you to focus on dynamics, accents, slurs, emotion, etc. in your playing instead.

3. Hammer-Ons with Maximum Efficiency - In this course, I show you how to hammer-on with the absolute smallest amount of movement in your hand. This allows you to hammer-on clearly, accurately, and on any string without any unwanted string noise.

"Matt’s courses have given me many skills and tools to apply in my guitar playing…"

Who is this Course For?

This course is for guitarists looking to increase your hammer-on skills by learning the exact jazz concepts legendary players use on records.

It's for guitarists who:

  • Struggle with hammer-ons and hammer-on technique.
  • Want to get rid of quite hammer-ons once and for all.
  • Want to hammer-on with as little effort as possible and maximum tone.
  • Don’t have hours to waste learning hammer-ons 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 hammer-on issues.

I've been studying and teaching guitar for 25 years and have spent years on developing rock-solid technique during that time.

I want to share with you everything I've learned about how to hammer-on properly using my proven hammer-on learning system.


Who is this Course NOT For?

As your guitar teacher, 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.
