& The Art Of Creating Better Guitar Lessons
ate Savage always knew he wanted to share his love for playing the guitar with others. After earning his Music Degree at San Jacinto College and playing hundreds of shows across Canada, the USA, and Europe -- he wanted to find a better way to help guitarists around the world.
So in 2009, he connected with Musora Media to start GuitarLessons.com -- a massive library of free online guitar lessons that has since helped more than 20 million guitar players.
“I loved playing shows and touring,” Nate said in 2009. “But my heart has always been set on guitar education. I truly believe that playing the guitar can be a life-changing experience, so having the opportunity to create online lessons and help students around the world felt like such a perfect opportunity.”
Nate’s most popular videos are built to give beginners an easier way to get started without the friction of private lessons. “8 Guitar Chords You Must Know” has reached more than 4 million views. “Play 10 Songs With 4 Chords”, “5 Essential Strumming Patterns”, and “How To Hold The Guitar” are just a few other examples of videos that have been seen more by more than a million students.
Through his online lessons, Nate was able to reach more guitarists than he’d ever imagined and get personal feedback from tens of thousands of YouTube comments and personal emails -- gaining a deeper understanding of where students were having issues, what obstacles were getting in the way, and what was creating the fastest breakthroughs for getting to that next level.
More than anything: it comes down to better technique.
“If you’re a beginner, technique will help you establish the fundamentals so you can make your playing come alive”, Nate says. “And if you’ve been playing for a while, technique is the tool that will help you fill the gaps in your playing so you can express yourself more creatively and without any limitations.”
Nate has authored a best-selling DVD set called The Guitar System and leads the way for Guitareo.com, a membership site with step-by-step lessons, jam tracks, and live events. He has developed a proven formula for helping students get started on the guitar and become more complete musicians.
And now, through Guitar Technique Made Easy, you’ll have the opportunity to study directly with Nate through his 26-week course while receiving his personal support every step of the way.
"With Guitar Technique Made Easy, it really felt like having a teacher monitoring my learning curve. I don't think you could find a better way of learning the guitar. If you have trouble with specific things, you can always ask and watch the video again and again and again. No teacher in the real world would stay so cool when being asked over and over again.
I am a fan of this weekly concept. Although it is possible in theory to prepare something for myself (dividing a course into weekly sections), I would not get the same results because there is a way to cheat and go on faster or slower. Nate's time-setting is ideal."
"I highly recommend Guitar Technique Made Easy. Nate is the best guitar instructor I've ever had. Just the passion that he shows and his love of the instrument -- his way of explaining things is great. I especially liked the way he started with the basic topics and then increased the difficulty levels. Also, he didn't pull any punches. Nate let the students know exactly what was expected of them and what it took for improvement on the guitar, myself included.
I have absolutely no negative comments. The course was very informative and multi-topical; utilizing videos, charts, jam tracks, etc. to accelerate the learning process (can you tell I'm a teacher?!). Thank you, Nate, for giving me a new perspective on my guitar playing."
"Before signing up, I was concerned about my ability to keep up with the lessons due to family and travel commitments. However, I knew that I needed to improve and the lessons every week provided the focus I was missing.
I liked the fact that the lessons are recorded and were/are available whenever I had time to catch up. Also, the grading practice for beginner / intermediate / advanced players made sure I didn’t feel left out.
I would recommend Guitar Technique Made Easy because there is something in it for everyone who wants to improve on the guitar. It really helped me put structure and focus around practice time to improve effectiveness."
"Guitar Technique Made Easy provided structure and a well-organized curriculum. For the first time, I knew what to study and in what order. I liked having challenging yet attainable weekly goals; these provided a real sense of progress.
If someone wants to learn guitar, Guitareo and Guitar Technique Made Easy are the first things I would recommend. I struggled for a couple of years learning from poorly-written books, another learning site provided by a major guitar manufacturer, and YouTube videos with little progress. The real progress I've made is directly attributable to Guitareo and GTME! I'm currently going through GTME again at a snail’s pace to try to absorb and master as much as possible."
"At first, I was unsure about joining Guitar Technique Made Easy because I didn’t know if I could keep up with the course. It was a leap of faith, and worth it. As a result, I learned to let go of my perfectionism (I always got hung up on details before) and found that progress is progress!
I liked that there are tasks for beginners, intermediates, and pro players in every unit, so I can revisit the course in the future and still learn something new. I'd recommend it to people who are into online teaching and struggling with how to proceed with learning."
