How To Transform Your Guitar Playing Into Totally Awesome, Top-Level Guitar Playing... Even If Your Guitar Playing Is Stuck Right Now

Have you practiced countless hours and still can't play guitar the way you want?

Do you have to fight really hard just to make tiny improvements?

Do you feel like you’re playing the same stuff over and over again?

Are you unsure what to learn or what to practice?

Have you taken electric guitar lessons online (or offline), but didn’t get the guidance you wanted?

Are you disappointed that you’re still not the guitar player you hoped to be?

It’s not your fault…

I know how you feel, many guitar players have felt this way. What I found is, everyone (yes, every person) has the potential to become a good guitar player...

I've been where you are...

For years, I felt my guitar playing was stuck in a rut.

Worse, I didn’t know how to fix that or even if fixing it was possible. I practiced a lot, but improved at a snail’s pace and still couldn’t play even close to the way I wanted to.

It was clear that I had absolutely NO natural talent… NONE! Everything was so difficult. I had to fight really hard....

I played the same stuff over and over again. I felt like a broken record. Guitar got boring.

I wasn’t even sure what to learn or practice. I had hundreds of licks, knew lots of techniques but I didn’t really know what to do with them. I just didn’t know how to tie it all together. It felt like I had hundreds of bricks… but was missing the mortar that holds them together… so I couldn’t build anything.

Guitar Playing Improvement In Online Guitar LessonsI had many teachers over the years, but there didn’t seem to be any real plan to their teaching… I just wasn’t getting the help I wanted.

I sucked so bad… and didn’t know why. Was it my teacher? Was it me? Was it both? What is my problem? Why did my friends improve twice as fast as I did, while they practice half the time!!

I became so frustrated, so disappointed and so upset to the point of actually being depressed that I seriously considered quitting guitar.

But then, I kept hearing about this guy, Randy, who somehow seemed to take guys with no talent and made them play really freaking awesome.

Guitar Playing Improvement In Online Guitar LessonsBut I still didn’t do anything, until one day - I remember it was a Friday night, I met with a friend who had been telling me about his teacher for months. I went to his house that day, he played guitar and my mouth hit the floor!

I asked to borrow his phone (this was before mobile phones were common), and I called his teacher right there to sign up for lessons.

When I got there the following Tuesday, I was blown away and as I quickly began to improve, I remember thinking to myself “Why didn’t I do this earlier?”

My guitar playing completely changed. Things started to go through the roof! After 4 months, my picking speed increased from 408 notes per minute to 820 notes per minute. More importantly, it was now clean & accurate.

But it wasn’t just my picking that was better, everything was getting better... a lot better.

25 Years Later… I’ve helped thousands of regular people to become extraordinary guitar players. Here are a few of my champion students.

After all these years of bloodied-nose experience, other guitar teachers asked me to help them improve their guitar teaching.

Today, most of the world's top guitar teachers are trained in the Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle – which I founded in 2007. There, they are taught, trained and coached to become the very best guitar teachers on earth.

I don’t say this to impress you, I say it to impress upon you that I know how to help people who are really struggling with their guitar playing to bust through every barrier and get their guitar playing to where they want it to be… and beyond.

3 Big Mistakes 99% Of Guitar Players Make That Stop Them From Making Big Breakthroughs In Their Guitar Playing, Becoming A Musical Badass & Feeling Great Every Time You Pick Up The Guitar

Guitar Playing Mistake To AvoidMistake #1: Taking lessons from a typical guitar teacher. Most guitar teachers simply are not qualified to teach guitar. They have no training or certifications for teaching guitar (a music degree does not count).

In addition, they don’t produce big results for their students. You can only evaluate a teacher by his results. Few teachers can display overwhelming proof of results by showing you the skills of their actual students.

The worst part is they often (unintentionally) cause damage to their students’ development. I see this all the time. Their students come to me for help because they’ve been stuck and want to get on the right track.

Those students often have many bad habits and big holes in their knowledge.

It’s a disaster and sad because it doesn’t have to be this way.

Guitar Playing Mistake To AvoidMistake #2: Teaching yourself: You just read how much frustration, struggle and even damage typical (and unqualified) guitar teachers can cause you.

These guys teach local or guitar lessons online for a living, you probably don’t... so that means the unintended damage, bad habits and problems you may cause yourself may very likely actually be worse.

"Tom Hess taught me 10,000% more in the last 1 and a half years than I had learned in the prior 15 years before that... I'm able to do things now that I thought I'd never be able to do, that were just waaaaaay out of my reach." - Scotty Woodward | Virginia, USA

Guitar Playing Mistake To AvoidMistake #3: Learning guitar from free (or cheap) video guitar lessons online.

These videos are typically created by the same unqualified and uncertified guitar teachers mentioned above... or worse, they are created by people who are not even teachers at all!

Even if those video lessons for guitar were good (which most aren’t), you’re still basically teaching yourself without a strategy.

How would you know which ones to learn from and which ones to ignore?

Even if you are able to separate the good videos from the bad ones (which is hard for most people to do), you’d only have “pieces” of information. What you need is wisdom, not information.

Pieces of information will not make you the guitar player you want to be... only the right strategy will. A strategy specifically, uniquely and personally designed for you by an actual expert guitar teacher.

Imagine How Much Better Your Guitar Playing Will Become When You Know EXACTLY What TO DO, Exactly How To Practice And Have The Guidance & Roadmap To Get There

I'm going to take you through the exact same proven & personalized process I've created for hundreds of guitar players to transform them from ordinary to extraordinary players...

I don’t just teach you what to do. I guide you and hold your hand through the entire process to make each step easy for you.

"The online guitar lessons with Tom Hess are fantastic! I can now play things that I would never have dreamed I would be able to play when I started - and I'm hungry for more! :)" Tommaso Zillio | Canada

The forum is beyond words. I mean, I ask a question and I get 20 responses or 10 responses from very helpful people. Everybody is trying to help there. Nobody is criticizing like anybody. Everybody is just so helpful. It’s like having 20 Tom Hesses. It’s like, you know... 20 mentors, 20 people… more than that actually. So I think the forum is awesome for that.
