Fretboard Biology is a self-paced, intensive guitar training program that blends the elements of academic training in music with practical skills and knowledge to help you become a professional guitar player.
There are many educational choices for guitar players today, but none give you the advantages of Fretboard Biology.  Academic programs are expensive and don’t teach you the knowledge of the street that you need to be a successful musician.  Other websites offer hundreds of videos on a variety of topics, which can certainly be valuable, but do not offer the kind of structured, in-depth training that will give you the best chance of success.
Fretboard Biology is the only program of its kind.  It combines the rigors of an academic program with the practical knowledge and skills you need to be a versatile and highly competent guitar player.  Best of all, you can study at your own pace, anywhere in the world, and for less money than your monthly cell phone bill.
This is a rare opportunity to study with one of the greatest guitar teachers available today.  Sign up now to start your journey toward realizing your potential as a musician.


Your First Month is FREE!

The Fretboard Biology program offers different levels of study to fit your goals. Whether you want a completely self-paced, self-study program or you want more personal attention, this program will offer you the most efficient way to develop your knowledge and skills as a guitar player.
