Why should you take a step-by-step course instead of learning on Youtube?

Youtube is great for random quick tips, but the videos don't follow any order.

This is the only place you can get my step-by-step system to take you from slow and buzzy chords to clear and confident guitarist.

Each video builds on the previous ones so you never get lost and overwhelmed.

"You're a skilled musician and very passionate about guitar...In addition to your 5 minute style and interest in the success of your students makes this the best program that I have seen"


-Dr. Randall Poole

"Chords have been a real issue for me since day 1. What I've attained in 3 days, I didn't attain in 7 months of lessons. It was so easy."


- Don Mann

"Given that I've never learned or picked up a guitar before, I am extremely happy with my progress"


-Paul Zenevicius

"It doesn't seem like as much effort to play the guitar, it just feels comfortable - which it wasn't before"


-Jen M.


LET'S FACE IT... THIS WORKS,
YOU NOW HAVE 3 SIMPLE OPTIONS:

OPTION 1: DO NOTHING AND GO BACKWARDS... 


 A month or two from now you get demotivated, stop playing, and lose all the skill you've worked to get up to this point.

Your guitar gets left in the corner collecting dust. Soon enough you'll be 10 years older, still wishing you could play and regretting that you didn't stick with it.

OPTION 2: DO NOTHING AND IF YOU ARE LUCKY, STAY THE SAME..  


In the best case you keep going in circles and not really making any progress. You put in countless hours of practice and don't get any better than you are now.

OPTION 3: MAKE THE CHANGE TODAY, AND CHANGE YOUR LIFE... 


Just 2 weeks from now you can be playing chords clearly and smoothly, strumming away with an effortless sense of rhythm. 

You'll have complete clarity on how to keep making progress, and have the skills to play more than 1000 songs.

 You'll be having fun every day and be excited to keep improving. You'll have built a habit of consistency so you can progress faster than ever before.


Discover how to Impress your friends and family with your clear chords and smooth strumming

Let me tell you a secret...

When I started guitar I was terrible. (true story)

I had played for 3 years already and I got kicked out of my first band. 

We went to record our first song - "With A Little Help From My Friends" by The Beatles, but there was one massive problem...

I couldn't switch chords fast enough to play the song in time....

but there was no more time...the rest of the guys had already recorded their parts.

In a desperate attempt...

I grabbed my mp3 player with its cheap microphone, 

and I recorded the ENTIRE SONG 6 times - once for each string on the guitar, and layered them all together on the computer...

Then the moment of truth - I went to listen to it.

As you can imagine, it was completely awful. It just sounded like a jumbled mess of notes...

The next week I overheard the rest of the guys planning out their next song with their new guitarist.

I was absolutely crushed for weeks, but I understood. I just didn't have the skill...

So what went wrong? It's very simple.

It was boring and took way too long to play my favorite songs because the music conservatory I learned from taught irrelevant information, scales and theory.

I made this course to make sure you don't have that experience. 

You'll learn the skills to play the music you love as quickly and easily as possible


I never gave up, and returned to the stage a few years later.

still unsure? here's some common questions we get...

(Click any to expand)

There's a good chance you've been using ineffective learning method - or just winging it with random videos. This course is designed to target all the things you're currently getting stuck on, plus we'll be here to help you one-on-one the entire time. Your success is guaranteed.

It's likely not any issue with your natural skill, it's definitely just an issue with the techniques you've been taught - or tried to guess at on your own. There are probably a few subtle changes to your current bad habits that can be very quickly fixed.

Yes and yes. In fact there are lessons on these exact things in the course. We know exactly what you're struggling with and we've guided thousands of guitarists through it. We'll do the same for you.

That's exactly the goal of this course, to get you strumming smoothly and effortlessly as quickly as possible. Guitar becomes so much more fun once you pass the "beginner's trench" - the term I came up with for the difficult stage at the beginning where your chords are slow to switch, your strumming feels awkward, your fingers can't stretch to reach that C chord and the F chord feels totally impossible.

You can ask questions at any time and you'll get to send in videos of your playing to get tips and advice that will improve your playing instantly. If you're struggling right now, there are likely a few small issues with your technique. They're easy to fix, but if you don't know what they are - you can't fix them.

Yes. That's how confident I am this will help you, that I'm willing to take this massive risk that you won't want your money back. Now of course you have to actually follow the videos and do the practice each day. I guarantee this will work for you if you follow the step-by-step system I've spent 10 years developing, but you're not going to learn guitar if you don't actually practice.


I played guitar for 2 years and got kicked out of my first band beacuse the method I used to learn was so ineffective. I don't want anyone to go through that - so I want to help as many people as possible by keeping the price ridiculously low

After the cost of ads I don't make any money from running this course, and when you factor the time I spend helping course members I actually lose money. But this course is also about building a relationship with you and us here at 5 Minute Guitar. A good percentage of people who buy this ask to buy my other courses once they've experienced how much they improve in such a short period of time, so that's how this works out for me & the team financially in the long run.

Yes! Many course members like to go back and rewatch the videos after the first 14 days to continue improving

Yes! I do recommend starting right now while you're the most motivated - but you can start whenever you like.

Not at all! Guitar is a great retirement hobby. We have hundreds of guitarists in their 60's,70's, and 80's in our courses - all making excellent progress.

Hand stretching and mobility exercises are part of the course to get your fingers moving quicker. These are useful for all ages and I do them daily myself.

+ I have tried guitar before and not been successful, will this work for me?

There's a good chance you've been using ineffective learning method - or just winging it with random videos. This course is designed to target all the things you're currently getting stuck on, plus we'll be here to help you one-on-one the entire time. Your success is guaranteed.

+ I've been playing for months already but have been progressing very slowly, will this work for me?

It's likely not any issue with your natural skill, it's definitely just an issue with the techniques you've been taught - or tried to guess at on your own. There are probably a few subtle changes to your current bad habits that can be very quickly fixed.

+ I can't change chords very well - my fingers don't stretch and I'm slow to switch - will this help?

Yes and yes. In fact there are lessons on these exact things in the course. We know exactly what you're struggling with and we've guided thousands of guitarists through it. We'll do the same for you.

+ I want to just play and relax with guitar but can't because I'm not good - will this help?

That's exactly the goal of this course, to get you strumming smoothly and effortlessly as quickly as possible. Guitar becomes so much more fun once you pass the "beginner's trench" - the term I came up with for the difficult stage at the beginning where your chords are slow to switch, your strumming feels awkward, your fingers can't stretch to reach that C chord and the F chord feels totally impossible.

+ Does this use barre/bar chords

There are 2 versions of the challenge. One uses barre chords and one does not. You'll be able to select your skill level after checkout and get sent to the correct challenge for your ability

FAQ image

+ I've gotten stuck before...will the live coaching help?

You can ask questions at any time and you'll get to send in videos of your playing to get tips and advice that will improve your playing instantly. If you're struggling right now, there are likely a few small issues with your technique. They're easy to fix, but if you don't know what they are - you can't fix them.

+ Is there really a 300% money back guarantee?

Yes. That's how confident I am this will help you, that I'm willing to take this massive risk that you won't want your money back. Now of course you have to actually follow the videos and do the practice each day. I guarantee this will work for you if you follow the step-by-step system I've spent 10 years developing, but you're not going to learn guitar if you don't actually practice.

+ Can I access the videos after the 30 days?

Yes! Many course members like to go back and rewatch the videos after the first 30 days to continue improving

+ Can I buy it now and start later?

Yes! I do recommend starting right now while you're the most motivated - but you can start whenever you like.
