It's my passion to simplify the process of becoming a great guitar player and to empower you to become your very best! 

And through this ShredMentor Patreon page, my goal is to make extremely high quality guitar training as affordable as possible for everyone.

But that's only possible when you're part of the equation! Your input is the ONLY way the material can be personalized to your specific needs as a player. Which is why your pledge is so important - you're DIRECTLY investing in yourself when you pledge here.


SPEED TRAINING BOOT CAMP
To mark the re-launch of this extremely popular class in December 2016 and bring its benefits to those of you who cannot attend personally, I've added a special new reward for you when you pledge just $7 or more per release!

In addition to the custom diagram sets and demonstration videos, you'll also get a live video stream that you can follow along with, as well as all the downloads of all the multimedia files I use to play along to during the session so you can continue to progress throughout the week.

Simplifying the Process of Getting Great at Guitar:
First of all - the process of improving as a guitarist is way over-complicated the way it's normally presented, and there's no reason why it needs to be so difficult
 
That's why I've worked tirelessly ever since I created ShredMentor Rock Guitar Academy in 2008 to shorten the path between point A (where you are now) and point B (the musician you want to become):
  1. Firstly, by creating the most intuitive fretboard diagrams possible. Diagrams that literally improve the way you see the fretboard — so you can see potential musical ideas just by looking at your guitar neck.
  2. Secondly, by beginning at the end (desired results) and working backwards to let the desired result define the process (the activities that should define your "practice"). This cuts out all of the time-wasting things that "seem" like useful but that don't actually lead to the results you're trying to achieve.
  3. And finally, maintaining the proper mindset by staying focused on the handful of high-yield activities that are worth your time, rather than getting distracted by the many ubiquitous distractions to your progress like "finger exercises," "reciting scales," learning "licks" already used by other musicians, and questionable internet tablature.

The key to getting GOOD at the guitar is to be able to USE what you learn - directly. If it's worth practicing, you should be able to drop it directly into a solo, riff or song, and it should be something people would want to actually listen to.

After all, you should have something to SHOW for all the time and energy you put into practicing.




SHOW THE WORLD WHAT YOU CAN DO.
That's the underlying mission for ShredMentor - to help YOU show the world what you can do.

If you have a musical vision, it's important to me that you get a chance to share that with the world. 

It will change your life to do so because you will have fulfilled your vision and be living a life you'd only previously imagined. But perhaps more importantly, it will change OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES TOO.

It might be hard to make the mental leap right now, but just think:

Every musician and band, however legendary or obscure, that inspired you to pick up an instrument, was once "nowhere" as a musician. No one had any idea who they were, and they were inspired by some other music. But they had a VISION and they worked to create it and put it out into the world, where it changed YOUR LIFE.

YOU, and YOUR VISION, are where that cycle begins again. This is where you owe it to yourself to make your musical vision a reality, where you pass the torch onto the next generation of musicians and keep the fire burning.

That's all part of why, in addition to the personal musical training & Guitar Practice Tools that I offer, I have created this Patreon page as a supplement to give you ENORMOUS VALUE for even more affordable rates.
