Let’s face it! The main reason we learn to play guitar in the first place is becuase we want to be the center of attention in a crowd. We want to hear the audience shout and applaud as we show off our extreme acoustic guitar playing skills. But the problem is, most guitar players don’t stand out in a crowd. And that’s because they play songs the same way as just about every other guitarist does. So they all pretty much sound the same.





It’s what you get!  The most obvious difference with GaylerdGUITAR is what YOU get when you join! Instead of downloading a single lesson, you access an entire LIBRARY of streamed song tutorials so you can learn as many songs as you like… ON-DEMAND!  That way, you really can start becoming the guitar player other guys “wanna be”! 

It’s his Teaching Style! Another big difference is the teaching style! Gaylerd does more than just show you how to play chords. He’ll teach you step-by-step how to put his signature “WOW!Factor”™ into the songs. Plus, Gaylerd’s warm friendly approach makes you feel as if you are learning the songs right there in the studio.

It’s the Tutorials! One more HUGE ADVANTAGE for you is in the tutorial itself. Each video lesson includes some really cool and helpful learning features that many other teachers just don’t take time to edit in. Features like on screen Chord Diagrams, real-time riff tabs, and other helpful on-screen tips. Gaylerd’s tutorials  will teach you how to do a whole lot more than just play a few riffs and strum a few chords on your acoustic guitar. They’ll teach how to put “WOW!Factor“™ into the songs!

It’s the Experience! The Bottom line is thisYou’ll learn songs faster and enjoy the entire guitar learning experience more because GaylerdGUITAR is almost like having your own personal guitar coach on call 24/7.
