Attention Frustrated Guitar Players...

You Can Only Go So Far On B.S.

How To Transform Your Guitar Playing Into Totally Freaking Awesome, Top-Level Guitar Playing... Even If Your Guitar Skills Kind Of Suck 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 (and slow) improvements because nothing comes easy when trying to master new things on the guitar? Are you disappointed that you are still not the advanced guitar player you hoped, expected and should be by now?

It’s not your fault. You simply didn’t know exactly what to do and how to do things in order to turn this all around.

If you're anything like most struggling guitar players, you often (or at least sometimes) feel like you just don't have enough natural talent, potential or skills to ever be as good as your favorite guitar players... you're wrong...

Everyone (yes, every average, normal or ordinary person) has the potential to become a great player... you do NOT need "natural talent". Why? Because talent is something you learn to have... and if it can be learned, it can be taught... Problem is, most guitar teachers don’t know this and have no idea how to teach you to reach your true, untapped and undiscovered potential... Instead, their approach to teaching is to merely teach you “stuff” (scales, chords, techniques, licks... you know... “stuff”)

You probably already know this to be true if you’ve ever tried to learn from typical guitar teachers in your local area, books, videos, free generic internet guitar lessons on YouTube or even when trying to teach yourself... you know that stuff doesn’t really work... in fact, it can cause more harm than good in some cases.

That’s got to be frustrating!

Hi, I'm Tom Hess

I've been where you are...

In the past, I struggled too at every level of my guitar playing - even once I became an advanced guitar player, I sometimes kind of sucked at certain things.

I wanted to feel confident, excited and good every time I picked up my guitar... but I wasn't. I struggled to learn how to play guitar faster, cleaner and more creatively. For example, I spent years trying to learn how to sweep pick fast and cleanly... It wasn’t really working.

I also went almost insane trying to improve my improvisation skills. Back then, I had no way to measure something so abstract like improvising, phrasing, creativity or songwriting so I had no objective way to even know if I was getting any better or not... but it sure felt that I was just spinning my wheels and not really getting anywhere.

... It was as frustrating as trying to pick the fleas off a dog’s back while wearing boxing gloves!

At first, I didn't have a teacher and was trying to learn from friends, books, guitar magazines, videos, etc., basically teaching myself. Then I got my first part time job at 14 making $4 per hour just so I could pay for intermediate level guitar lessons (and an amp).

So I had a teacher... I assumed he was a good "teacher" (because he played guitar better than I did). I improved a little, but it was still too slow. As a result, I switched teachers many times and eventually started to notice that some teachers were clearly better at helping me than others... but still progress was slower than I wanted.

So, then one winter, things started to go through the roof... My picking speed more than doubled and more importantly, for the first time, it was totally clean & accurate. But it wasn’t just my picking that was better, almost all areas of my guitar playing were improving fast and just continued to improve more and more.

I practiced about one hour per day, 4-6 days per week... and I never had to practice boring exercises, everything I learned and practiced was both challenging & fun... but never boring.

What had happened?

Well, I had finally found an outstanding guitar teacher who was clearly different from all the others. I knew some of his other students and most of them were advancing quickly, so I figured, "This is the teacher for me!". I studied with this guy for several years, followed everything he told me to do (to the letter!), and I was finally becoming the guitar player I always wanted, wished & hoped to be...

25 Years Ago (When I Started Teaching Guitar), I Didn't Really Have A Clue What I Was Doing As A Teacher

In the beginning, I made the same dumb mistake that most guitar teachers make. I assumed that once I became a really good guitar player, I would be qualified to teach guitar to anyone who was not as good as I was... Back then, real training for guitar players who wanted to learn how to teach guitar didn’t exist...

I began by learning from other guitar teachers. Problem was, none of them had any real training either... they learned through trial and error – which leads to mediocre results.

So, I found the very best and learned from them but was still not satisfied and began testing everything with thousands of students over many years, developing the very best teaching ideas, concepts, methods, approaches, philosophies, strategies, tactics, etc. along the way.

After years of research, testing, refinement, more testing & bloodied-nose experience, other guitar teachers began begging me to teach this unique expertise to them.

Today, most of the world's top guitar teachers are trained in the Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle. There, they are taught, trained and coached to become the very best guitar teachers on earth – light years beyond the average guitar teacher. I created the Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle and teach, train, coach and certify those teachers.

Since 2007, I’m the leading & most successful guitar teacher worldwide with a track record that proves it.

3 Big Mistakes 99% Of Guitar Players Make That Stop Them From Becoming An Awesome Guitarist, Becoming A Musical Badass And Feeling Great Every Time You Pick Up The Guitar

Mistake #1: Taking guitar lessons from a typical guitar teacher (either locally or online via ). Most guitar teachers simply are not qualified or certified to be teaching anyone, they have no training and do not consistently produce big results for their students... which leads to the next point; no proof of results. A great teacher will always be able to show you overwhelming proof of results by showing you the skills of his actual students.

...The worst part is not that they aren’t qualified nor have any proof of it... no, the worst part is they often (unintentionally) cause damage to their students’ development. I see this all the time when their students come to me to help them finally get on the right track.

Those students often have moderate to severe bad habits, massive holes in their knowledge and skills or have simply learned things incorrectly, in the wrong order and cannot even use the disorganized, incomplete, wrong information and skills that they do have... it’s often a disaster.

So I’ve become really, really good at fixing this for students and making them as good (and often better) guitar players than they ever thought possible once they begin taking online guitar lessons with me.

Mistake #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 internet guitar lessons 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.

Mistake #3: Learning guitar from free (or cheap) video guitar lessons online. This alone is no way to learn. First, these videos & “lessons” are typically created by the same unqualified and uncertified guitar teachers mentioned above... or worse, they are created by people not even teachers at all!

Second, even if the video lessons for guitar were good (which most aren’t), you’re still basically teaching yourself without even a hint of a strategy as you try to decide which ones to learn from, which ones to ignore, how to learn from those so called “lessons” by yourself... alone.

Third, even if you were able to resolve the first 2 problems, the biggest problem for you is that these wannabe electric guitar lessons are just “pieces”. Pieces 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 and someone to keep you on track and hold your hand through the process.

But I've got good news for you...

What if you no longer struggled to reach your guitar playing goals, and instead felt confident, excited and motivated by how great you are finally able to play guitar. It’s an amazing feeling to be admired by LOTS of people and simply hear yourself play at such a high level.

The Most Powerful Guitar Lessons Online

The best electric guitar lessons online

As you learn guitar with me, you're not simply getting a bunch of cookie-cutter things to practice like you would from everyone & everywhere else. You see, I don’t teach “guitar”... I teach YOU!

What does that mean? It means everything we do together is based around you, who you are, what your goals are, what you need, what your challenges are, what your strengths are, what your weaknesses are, what your learning styles are, what your experience is, what your frustrations are, what you are struggling with, what you are already good at and who you want to become.

This is why before we do anything else, you will complete a comprehensive evaluation form so that I learn everything I need to know about you in order to create the best possible personal success strategy for you. This will be the basis for all the online guitar lessons we will do together so that you are sure to reach each and everyone of your guitar playing & musical goals.

Other guitar teachers offering lessons online or offline won’t ask you any important questions about ‘you’ since they have no personalized and customized plan to teach YOU. They teach all students in the same cookie-cutter way, or have no plan at all...!

So after I create a very detailed, specific strategy for you, I hold your hand through the process, coach you and mentor you along the way. This ensures you reach your goals and go far beyond what you ever thought was possible for you.

This is the easiest part of my job. I don’t just teach my students guitar. I give them the knowledge, skills, motivation, confidence, guidance, and every other ingredient that they need to become at least as good if not better than they ever imagined they would be.

And through all of this, I have earned my position of the leading guitar teacher worldwide.

A Perfect Fit Because It’s Custom Made For You

You already know that my online guitar lessons for electric guitar have been proven to work better than anything else you’ve ever seen simply by looking at well over 100 of my students, but what you may not know is that the vast majority of these excellent guitar players started out as just ordinary people.

They didn’t have any more natural talent than you do. Most were nowhere near the advanced guitar playing level when I began teaching them. They were simply normal, average, regular people who followed what I taught them, trained and coached them to do. If these guys can do it, so can you!

Many of my students are now professional musicians (yes, that means making real money in music), but others are simply hobbyists who now can play guitar at a professional skill level.

Tom Hess - Top Guitar Teacher Trainer Whether you are a teenager, in your 80’s or anywhere in between, I’ve successfully taught many people in your age range in all forms of rock, metal, shred, blues & pop style guitar lessons.

Most of the world's best guitar teachers today came to learn in my online guitar lessons and to be trained by me in the Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle.

Integration is one of the four pillars to becoming a great (or even a good) guitar player, because without it, you’re going to suck. Amazingly, most other guitar teachers don’t teach integration – because they don’t know how. You can see this simply by listening to their students struggle to play fluently.

  • You gain the freedom to learn from anywhere in the world, any time of the day or night, without traveling to and from lessons, without being on a rigid lesson appointment schedule and without ever leaving your home.
  • How one tip from a famous Hollywood filmmaker can immediately make your guitar solos, phrasing, improvisation and songwriting more dramatic, more expressive and more original... Try learning that from your local guitar teacher.

  • You are guaranteed to never forget anything you learn from me because everything I teach you in your electric guitar lessons will be fully documented and you can always refer back to any lesson at zero cost to you – forever...

    When you take guitar lessons with other teachers, very little is documented. Since humans only remember 20% of what they see & hear, 80% is wasted. The worst part is, those teachers will review what you have forgotten in the past lesson, but now you’re PAYING for that in the next lesson... You will never pay twice to review the same things you already learned from me.
  • You get not only better guitar lessons, but also about 7 times more actual lesson content per lesson than you could get from a typical guitar teacher online or offline.
  • You won’t get ripped off by having to PAY to get your questions (correctly) answered... Other teachers trick you into paying to ask/answer questions by only addressing your questions during your paid lesson time. This also means that valuable lesson time is wasted on questions instead of teaching you new things. Learning with me, you ask questions anytime through my website and get (correct!) answers ... for free of course.
  • Be surrounded by like-minded WINNERS (my other students) who push you forward and love to help you instead of being dragged into some ghetto-like guitar community where people hide behind fake names, tear you down and give uninformed advice.

    Here, you will get massive positive support, won’t be just an anonymous number, make great friends, connect with me personally, be able to join in on musical collaborations and experience big (musical) life changes.
  • How to imprint your unconscious mind so that you increase your level of motivation, determination and desire to learn, practice and master guitar.
  • You learn from the leading & most successful guitar teacher worldwide with a track record that proves it. You benefit from my 25+ years of bloodied-nose experience, unparalleled success and having taught students from over 100 countries worldwide.

    In addition, you learn from the founder of the Elite Guitar Teaches Inner Circle, the school of guitar teaching where the world’s top guitar teachers are taught, trained, coached and certified by me... so you are sure to learn from the best.

    I don’t say this to impress you, I say it to impress upon you that I know how to get your guitar playing from where it is right now to exactly where you want it to be... and beyond.
  • We are going to do whatever it takes to break down every obstacle, overcome any challenge and bust through any wall standing between where you are now and where you want to and should be... a total guitar playing badass
