Why should I take your class and not just learn from YouTube?

You can try to learn guitar from YouTube but eventually you’ll figure out there’s so many videos out there is very hard to put the information together in a coherent way. I have students come to me all the time that are tired of watching random guitar videos on YouTube and don’t know how to put the information together. The GuitArmy’s guitar courses are more organized to systematically improve your skills on guitar.

Student Testimonial

Hi Chris, thanks so much for reaching out! I’m about halfway through lesson 10 of your Beginner lessons via Udemy, so I was researching more of your teaching, and what’s next… and found your GuitArmy! I’ve gotta tell ya, something about your explanations, your method of teaching, and the detailed resources provided, you’ve connected so many dots for me — it’s appreciated beyond words! I’m mostly self-taught, regret that I started so late in life, and have tried other online resources, but yours has been the most comprehensive! As a corporate facilitator to adult learners myself, I just wanted to express my gratitude!
