Teague Purtell's complete online guitar method!

Thank you for considering to become a member!  There has never been a better time to join.  My name is Teague Purtell and I am a professional guitarist/educator and some changes in my life have made it so I am able to work full time on the site 🙂 I had been earning my living playing 3 to 4 nights a week at the Roxy in downtown Vancouver, BC Canada for the last 6 years but that ended on April 7th.  So now my focus is on making this site great for you!

What is the membership?

It is a complete online guitar method that has been designed from 22 years teaching experience.   I started the site in 1999 with its purpose to make learning the guitar fun!

What is inside?

The members area consists of 24 main lessons that you can work through at your own pace.  Each lesson expands on the previous lesson and reinforces the material already taught to ensure it makes sense in due time.  Most of the 24 lessons will cover scales, chords, strumming, arpeggios, technique, theory, ear training and a few fun songs or riffs to tie all the information together.

What will I get out of it?

The site is a result of 22 years teaching experience to help you become the kind of guitar player you want to be. Whether it be for your own enjoyment, jamming with friends at a campfire or playing in a band, the members section will provide the material to make it happen!

 


Free Limited Access Member Package

The free members section offers 7 daily practice topics (Basics, Chords, Strumming, Technique, Songs, Improvising and Fingerpicking).  Each topic will have new material added each week for 3 weeks.  The idea is that you would try one section each day for a week.  If at the end of the 3 weeks you want more you can become a paid member for access to the complete method.
