Have you ever been frustrated with your rate of progress on the guitar? 


What we've found is that the key to making progress on the guitar is to know what to do, when to do it, and how to apply and use what you learn. 


Most times, teachers will tell you to simply "practice this" or "practice more", and this is often what causes frustration in the first place. Learning the guitar is not about quantity of practice or information. It is about quality. 


We'll teach you the concepts and skills you need to reach your goals and how to always be seeing, and hearing, the amazing progress you make.


You will learn faster ... Guaranteed.

Have you tried guitar lessons in the past and been disappointed? 


We've been there ourselves, and we've found that the reason you're disappointed is that most  guitar lessons are delivered in a "One Size Fits All" or "Cookie-Cutter" fashion. 


However, the traditional guitar lesson setting is not always the most effective way to get good results for the guitar student. Why? Because it doesn't focus on YOU, the student.

To get the results you deserve, you need a lesson program that is custom-designed for you. We'll work with you to always be sure that your lesson program is as unique as you are.

all programs include

Every custom-built program will also include these additional benefits:

  • TECHNIQUE: This class addresses everything technique. You will learn systems to build the raw skills you need to achieve your goals, no matter what they are. Your accuracy, dexterity, strength and speed, left and right-hand optimization, effortless guitar playing strategies, skills-specific daily drills and warmups and so much more will all be addressed. 
  • RHYTHM: Rhythm is an essential component of music. It is an essential component of life. Chord changing, strumming and syncopation problems plague many guitarists. Not anymore. This class will catapult your playing and improve every single aspect of it. 
  • SOLOING STRATEGIES: Here we will explore a variety of improvisational concepts and techniques, backed up with fingering patterns, exercises, lick examples, and complete solo ideas. We will work in many styles including rock, blues, jazz, country and many more. We will work on amp/effects/guitar tones as well, giving you suggestions to get the right sounds for the styles that you are learning. Many audio examples will be included. 
  • PHRASING: In this class we will explore all the main concepts necessary for crafting well-balanced rhythmic and melodic phrases to help you express yourself on the guitar, just as you do when you speak. We also examine how these phrases are put together to form cohesive solos. Many styles are covered – rock, blues, jazz, fusion, country, ethnic, funk, and more – and all of the concepts will be backed up with musical examples.
  • PRACTICE STRATEGIES: Practicing correctly, effectively and efficiently is THE KEY to success at any level on the guitar. 90% of all the time you ever play the guitar, even as a professional, is spent practicing. In this class we’ll dive deep into the elements of a perfect practice routine. The elements of available time, skill levels, determining the items you need to focus on and ones you can put on hold, when and where to practice, and how to construct your own practice schedule.
  • APPLIED MUSIC THEORY: This class WILL change your experience and journey to seeing the big picture and to literally transform your playing. Knowledge of Theory and how to apply it (not just reading it in a book or doing a stodgy "assignment”), in addition to training your musical ear, is a necessary component. By knowing it, hearing it and thus being able to action it and actually use it, is a giant hub of the wheel. It is THE #1 skill that 90% of guitar players don't have, or don't use.
  • ARTISTS & SONGS: With the new Artists & Songs classes, you will learn tons more songs than you ever could in private lessons or online. Each month there will be many classes dedicated solely to learning songs the correct way, studying the artists that created them and increasing your song repertoire.

"The biggest move you can make as a musician is to find a teacher. You need someone who has experience, someone who’s done what you want to do. You need who’s been taught how to play and, more importantly, how to teach.  I found all of these things with this program. The most important thing my teacher taught me was how playing music and living your life are inseparable. 

~ Joshua R., Student

"Taking electric guitar lessons from GLJ was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Without this program, I can honestly say that I probably would have quit music all together. You don't need luck and you don't need talent. You just need to want it and put forth the effort. So thank you, GLJ, for teaching me that valuable lesson.
