How To Play Guitar For Beginners, How To Play Guitar, Beginner Guitar Lessons, Beginner Guitar Songs

Play It Loud is the result of an obsessive quest, spanning almost 10 years, to hack the art of music.

My products contain the collective wisdom of legendary guitar players, dozens of renowned guitar instructors, intricate theory and harmony books, and thousands of hours of trial and error.

From the acoustic strumming techniques of Dave Matthews to metal guitar rhythms of James Hetfield, from the extensive study of legendary guitar players and brilliant composers, I was fixated on obtaining the holy grail of every aspiring guitar player:

To become a guitar player who has total command over the instrument.

Thousands of hours of playing time later, this book contains the skills and advice every potential guitar player will need in order to play the music they love.

A few of the artists I cover include: Michael Jackson, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Guns n’ Roses, The Foo Fighters, Lady Gaga, Taylor Swift, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Abba, Beyonce, AC/DC, Van Halen, Metallica, Megadeth, Green Day, Nirvana, and many many more!

From country to jazz to rock n’ roll, it’s all covered here, and it all works.

YOU WILL LEARN (in less than 30 minutes each):

  • How to play any guitar riff that you come across in the minimal amount of time. And I mean ANY!
  • How I learned to quickly leave the beginner stages of guitar (most players will never figure out how)
  • How to ditch your chord and scale books forever
  • How to get great guitar sounds without breaking the bank
  • How to play all the coolest guitar tricks that all your guitar teachers don’t want you to learn
  • How I’ve learned the secrets of the great guitar players like Jimi Hendrix, Eddie Van Halen, and Stevie Ray Vaughan (this is a method I use to learn from every guitar player’s style)
  • How to actually use music theory without the complexity. It’s easier than you think!
  • How I learned the real key to making and playing exciting yet beautiful lead guitar parts
  • How to find all the best FREE online resources and learning materials that helped me teach myself
  • How to do all this without hours of practice time and expensive guitar lessons

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. There are more than 50 topics covered, all with specific how-tos and practical, clearly written advice.

You don’t need a ton of cash, lots of guitar books, or even a guitar teacher. You need immediate results that compel you to continue.

That’s exactly what Play It Loud delivers.

All my products are clearly written, have zero fluff, and only contain the most useful, high quality content available anywhere.

Because some of my material is dense and requires a learning curve, I’m going to double down on my faith in these products.

You will have 365 days to learn and test out this material, and if in the rare case you don’t find any of my products useful……then you’ll get your money back! NO QUESTIONS ASKED!!!

My material is an investment in your future and your musical skills. A lot of my stuff works immediately and some of it becomes even more useful as time goes on. Because of this I want to make it easy for you to see this without worrying about getting ripped off.

Lessons and membership sites require a lot of discipline up front, and 30 days or even 60 days may not be enough time to look over everything.

You’ve got nothing to lose and everything to gain so buy with 100% confidence!


The Clueless Beginners Guide was created to resolve a lot of the problems with breaking out of the beginner’s stage of learning guitar. In the process, I outlined a complete process to breaking down any song in front of you. With all the techniques and strategies in this book, you will progress at a scary fast rate!!!

Get if for FREE when you sign up for my newsletter……….

Theory Demystified is the ONLY book that breaks down all the fundamentals of music for guitar, and then shows you how they go into making music. With the information in here, you will learn hundreds of chord shapes and scale patterns instantly, learn how they’re arranged into riffs and melodies, and then how songs are composed together. This 130 page book is the only resource made to show you how music is made on the guitar.


The 12 Step Guitar Soloing Method is my product that gives you all the techniques and concepts that were left out in the other books on lead guitar. Instead of harping on about scales, licks, and exercises……I wrote down the exact same steps that every great lead guitar player takes when they’re about to compose or improvise a solo. I go over how to break down the chord progressions you’re playing over, how to use intervals and doublestops, choosing the right scales, as well as detailing techniques of lead guitar used in jazz, country, and the blues.

“How To Play Like Slash” does exactly that! I take you on an in-depth lesson into how this master of rock lead guitar created the solos to several classic GnR songs, and help you understand his unique combination of technique, melody, and harmony that he brings to the fretboard…….

How To Play Like Jimi Hendrix, How To Use Jimi Hendrix's Chord Shapes, How To Play Blues Like Jimi Hendrix

The Jimi Hendrix Cheat Sheet is just like the product on Slash, except this one is all about Jimi! Tons of examples and techniques are showcased to help you understand how he approached the fretboard and how you can utilize a similar approach. All you need to do is read this book, apply the techniques I show you, and practice them!

To All The Skeptics, I Know Why You Have Doubts

You have every right to be skeptical of everything I say. There are good books, good instructors, and good advice from websites across the Internet.

I went to all of them and used everything I could find from those places because, like I said earlier, that was it. And I thought it was all I needed.

But I was wrong……

The products I’ve finished laying out for you is what I really wanted when I started. While I was making it, I played the riffs I learned over and over, compared learning methods of other books, distilled the information from my own sources, and racked my brain for weeks trying to flesh out what I know about the instrument.

I did all of this because I knew there was a way for you to learn that hadn’t been laid out yet.

My products are not perfect, despite all of the info I’ve crammed into it. I wrote the thing with Microsoft Word so it doesn’t have professional layouts or graphics, though I tried hard to enhance its visual appeal.

This production very much resembles a punk rock album. It’s naked and bare bones. But do you remember what was great about that genre?

They exposed all the phonies out there…….

I don’t hide behind all the snazzy graphics and colored text. And I knew that was going to be a bummer.

So I made sure the product would have so much replay value and useful info that it would set you straight for years!

Remember, I read everything out there so I know the format and how to present it, and even do it better because I’ve written all sorts of stuff. Writing is my other big pursuit outside of music as I studied Journalism, English, and History in college.

You won’t get sidelined by grammar mistakes or incomplete explanations of the material.

No stone is left unturned, but you might think the information isn’t enough……..

“All You Want Is My Money!”

The fact there’s no video or audio may be a good reason to not pay the price I ask for this product. I want you to save money and time but I only want you to buy it if you’re going to use it…….

I charge for my stuff for that reason. I want you to commit!

What would be a lot more expensive is to buy dozens of magazines at 6 bucks each, take months of lessons at 75 dollars a month, and then haphazardly buy lots of gear hoping that will solve the problem.

But I did that! I spent over $1460 in my first year of playing because I didn’t know what worked and didn’t work.

My product is MUCH cheaper. Agree? You could save much more than that just by using my product instead.

I could do all the videos to make it a couple hundred bucks higher but then I would be truly ripping you off. It’s a typical marketing ploy to use video or audio to hide the fact that you’re buying the same amount of information as you’d find in a newspaper……

NOT using my products will actually cost you all the money I’ve spent already…….

Why Would Anybody Need Or Use All This Info?

Quite simply, I want you to get your money’s worth while giving you REAL value.

I’m committed to the idea that everybody learns differently and is interested in different things.

Not everyone’s favorite guitar player is Jimi Hendrix.

That’s why I take so much time to talk about principles, not individual songs. Principles occur everywhere and can be used everywhere.

These are pieces of information you can apply to different songs of your choice. So having lots of them is very useful.

But you don’t need all of them all the time! The process of learning goes in stages.

One thing at a time. Not everything at once.

Don’t worry. You don’t have to learn everything in here.

Unless you want to……

How Can It Be That Good?

Maybe you think I’ve been exaggerating everything here? That it will be the same ole stuff everywhere else in everything I’ve bashed.

I’m not going to lie that I cover familiar ground you may have seen before, but I can GUARANTEE that you’ve probably not used it the right way.

That’s why I dug deep to see how you can use what I teach, and give you lots of examples of how to do so.

I don’t just give you a guitar tab, and tell you to go away and play it.

This is about having a complete strategy and toolbox available to accurately play the music you like. I teach you how to recognize the techniques you’re hearing and apply it to the tabs you’re seeing.

It’s not a quick fix…….

Guitar just doesn’t work that way. If that’s what you want then I suggest you go with something cheaper and more commonplace, like lessons.

Ask me for other services and I will even recommend them to you. There are plenty of places you can go to play the G, C, and D chords.

But I want you to be a BAD ASS when it comes to guitar, and that’s not for everyone.

Not everyone can handle being good at something like guitar, and being better at something than others.

And I can tell you that because nothing else exists out there that’s like what’s in my product. If there was, I would’ve bought it, and you wouldn’t be reading this…….

But It’s Too Hard! Not Everyone Is Talented!

One thing a lot of people don’t know about Jimi Hendrix was that he was a terrible guitar player at first! He was god-awful!

He got kicked out of bands, he was booed, and other guitarists literally made fun of him for trying so hard. If you don’t believe me, go read the book Room Full Of Mirrors about his life.

If you can do what he did, and get through the beginning when you don’t how to do anything, then most of the work is done.

I’m for real.

So relax. You don’t have to do anything like budget the deficit or solve calculus problems with music.

The only thing that separates “talented” people and everyone else is that they never stopped trying. They were willing to fail and make mistakes.

They want you to believe that so that you’ll concentrate your time filling in those TPS reports (remember from Office Space?).

I have done all the hard work of figuring out what does and does not work so that you can learn to do what I do in even less time. And I did it by reading and studying everything I could from the masters and those who wrote all those books and magazines I bought.

I Don’t Need A Plan. I Just Want To Have Fun!

Every good general knows that you need flexibility when it comes to war. The battlefield is a very unpredictable place that can easily wreck the most researched plan.

So I agree. I want you to have fun and go with the flow. The only thing is that many people reading this will take it as a sign of doing nothing at all to prepare.

And that’s just as bad.

Again, the tools and concepts are what I offer. With tons of strategies and tricks you can be prepared for every battle that lies ahead of you.

And you will win.

You won’t be tied down to any one way of thinking about guitar.

But I must warn you about something else. Something that nearly took me off track and is bound to happen to you without the right defense…….

There Are People Hoping That You Will FAIL

Greedy salesman, insincere friends, and jealous rivals are all hoping that they can one-up you. Shattering every desire to express yourself that you may have.

Even the most enthusiastic optimist can’t deny that the world is filled with blood-sucking vampires. They will not stop till they have sucked out every piece of your life-force and enthusiasm that you are currently feeling right now.

They get satisfaction from nothing other than making you feel as miserable and pathetic as they are. They could have played the guitar too, but they couldn’t rise to the challenge.

And now they want to make you feel as bored, sterile, and unhappy as they are.

The fear of failure, the inability to handle criticism, their low self-esteem, and envy of others like you are all mental demons they want to infect you with.

They’re secretly thinking, “Who do you think you are! What makes you so special? Become a good guitar player? Hah! That’ll be the day!”

A good friend of mine has this friend who’s idea of a good time is beating people at Halo (which he spends countless hours playing), criticizing anyone who tries to avoid eating Doritos (which makes this guy grossly overweight), and who has the vibe of a person tormented by doom and gloom.

I was at this friend’s house to visit and there was a guitar around so I started noodling. Just some lead guitar stuff.

Unfortunately this guy was there too.

As I was enjoying just being in the same world as my guitar heroes by playing, he started screaming, “Stop playing! My god, you suck! Why don’t you give up!”

All that mattered was that I felt like my guitar heroes.

I wasn’t perfect and I had much to learn, but I realized a couple of things……..This is the type of person who is afraid to make mistakes. A person who has never taken a cold, hard look into the mirror.

What he might see would send him into total despair as he would realize that he, not you or me, is the actual failure. Instead of rising to the challenge in the real world, he went to play in a virtual world with the master chief. All while stuffing his face with ranch flavored tortilla chips.

Can you see what he really is? Who he will never become?

This is not what you want to be or the road you want to take………..

What Can Happen If You Learn To Play Guitar Really Well!!!

Music is a real human need to everyone.

Why? Because it’s the most effective form of communication available to us.

A science called evolutionary psychology believes that music may have evolved as a way to connect with other human beings, temporarily eliminate pain and fear, and as a way to attract the opposite sex.

Think about it! When you listen to any sort of music, it’s usually to hear a story that you can see yourself in. A story where you get the girl, beat your demons, and live happily ever after.

It’s created specifically to heal, comfort, and help each other understand and get through the pain of being human that we all feel.

Music is quite literally the source of good vibrations! And having a guitar to play puts you right there in the midst of it!

You can become the guy that everyone wants to hear play Billie Jean on the guitar, or the amazing virtuoso that plays Jimi Hendrix style leads at your friend’s jam session.

The guitar allows you to play music that makes everyone feel happier and free. And your guitar could instantly lift people’s spirits with one riff!

People want to feel good, and music does that by serving as a place to get rid of fear, frustration, and despair then by it with happiness.

That is the purpose of music, and why we like playing guitar.

And those who can play the guitar the best, can make a lot of people happy!
