The Ultimate Guitar Method Guaranteed to Make You Great, Fast

Limited Time Offer - Save 75%

Are you tired of doing search after search looking for something to play at your current level, only to find yourself frustrated and giving up?

Or are you a beginner and stuck in that "information overload" place not knowing where to start?

Hi, my name is Teague Purtell and first up I want to thank you for taking the time to consider becoming a member.  I started Musiclearning.Com in 1999 as a way to provide support for the students I saw in person each week.  Since then it has become a complete step by step guitar method designed to provide direction, focus and get results! 

And most importantly, have lots of fun!  From 20 plus years of teaching I know that students learn better, have more fun and progress faster when songs are at the core of the method.

However, that being said, you will learn much more than songs.  You will gain the skills to play anything and everything.  Each lesson reinforces and expands on the previous and topics include scales, arpeggios, strumming and rhythm, ear training, improvising and even singing and playing.  Everything you learn will be to get you playing lots of songs and riffs and play them really well!

I am sooo excited!  This is great to get such personal attention.  What a great attribute to your site...... and even though I don't recognize the Metallica song from lesson 1, I do enjoy hearing myself play something other than "horrible sounds".

Learn Lots of Cool Songs and Riffs

All the songs and riffs on the site were carefully chosen to work with the complete step by step method.  Each chosen for a very specific reason and arranged in an order to help take the guess work out of what to play next.  With the ultimate goal to get you playing songs fast and well.

Membership includes access to hundreds of songs and riffs by artists like:

The Beatles, Coldplay, Metallica, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jason Mraz, Passenger, Blink 182, Greenday, John Mayer, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Lit, Justin Beiber, Guns n Roses, AC/DC, Cat Stevens, One Republic, Linkin Park, Led Zeppelin, Bryan Adams, Megadeth, Shawn Mendez, Selena Gomez, Jack Johnson, Neil Young, Rage Against the Machine, Seether, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Taylor Swift, DNCE, Calvin Harris, The Eagles, Pantera, and more.

You may find music you don't care to listen to is fun to play.  This happened to me when I was convinced by a friend to join a Metallica tribute band many years ago.  I really didn't care for Metallica but once I started to learn their songs I ended up having a lot of fun.  And I learned a lot. The key is to keep an open mind... and watch yourself become an amazing guitarist!

Not Sure What Song to Play at Your Current Level?

To see real growth on the instrument we want to learn songs that are challenging but not so challenging that we want to toss our guitar out the window!

A lot of thought and experience teaching these riffs and songs has allowed me to arrange them in an order that will guarantee success.   Between the material in the main lessons, the beat by beat breakdowns and the mp3's to play along with, you will be amazed at what happens to your playing.  I want you to succeed with each new song or riff and if for any reason you are having trouble with anything on the site, you can just drop me a note and I will do whatever is necessary to ensure you can reach your goals.  The goal is to give you the skills to play the songs you want and play them well.

And really, like most things in life, we need to feel we are improving.  That is where the excitement and fun is.  Knowing that every single time we pick it up, we are going to learn something new and succeed at it.  It makes the possibilities almost endless.  Just how good can I get?  I can tell you from years of teaching, you can get as good as you want.  You just need to know how.

Learn Songs Well

No more "Why doesn't it sound right?"

If you have found yourself learning a song, playing all the right notes but wondering why it doesn't sound right, the method will fix that!  More often then not it has to do with timing and nothing will solve that more than breaking parts down beat by beat.

The importance of the beat by beat breakdown cannot be over stated.  It is the single most important thing you can do to learn songs and riffs properly and make the most of your practice time.  Breaking things down will allow you to absorb the material in a way that is just not possible with any other practice method.

It is the way professionals practice.  And I can tell you from my own personal experience having learned well over a thousand songs for various gigs, it is the single most important thing you can do to learn things well and fast.

Students quite often think that breaking things down into small sections (beat by beat) will take much longer to learn but it is actually the opposite.

The truth is when you break things down, you are able to pick up the parts quicker and play them properly.  This creates momentum and positive feelings about practicing.  The positive feelings lead to better practice.  I think most will agree we learn and retain information when we feel good about what we are doing.

Teague has such a great appreciation and undertanding of many different types of music. This is in my opinion one of the most important aspects of teaching, because there are so many different styles of musicians waiting to be taught. Teague has taught me alot. He has inspired me (I don't know if he knows it or not) to someday be a music teacher myself. Music is the greatest thing in my life and I hope that someday I can pass that on to someone else.

Learn Songs Fast

There is no better way to learn songs fast then to play along with someone who knows the song.  Better yet,  play along with a professional, play along with me 🙂 All the play along mp3's on the site were made by me, so every time you pick up your guitar and log in, you can start jamming right along with me.  Private lessons generally only provide that once a week, however by becoming a member you will be able to any day, any hour.  You decide the time and work at a pace that works for you.

Careful consideration was put into each mp3 to make sure you learn the riffs and songs properly while increasing your attention and ability to focus.  From years of teaching and being able to test with the students I see in person each week, I am able to get the right number of repeats to hold focus and not lose attention.  I also did a lot of testing with whether leaving rests in between the examples were necessary.

In some cases I found if I didn't leave a rest in between the examples, students would become frustrated and be unable to keep repeating the example.  However, by putting in 2 to 4 beats of rest (space) between examples, it would allow the students a chance to catch their breath so to speak.  A chance for the brain to absorb the material in a much more effective way.  This would lead to better results and much less frustration.

In other examples, there is no rest because I found the rest would cause students to lose their focus.  So all of this to say, a lot of thought and testing was done to make sure the mp3 examples will work for you.  They will let you see some great results and feel great about your progress making you want to return day after day to keep moving forward.

Your Instructor (Me)

Well, my name is Teague and I have been a professional musician for 25 years.  In that time I have done a lot of things from guitar in a Metallica tribute band to cello in the CSU orchestra 🙂

I studied music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Humber College in Toronto and Cleveland State University in Cleveland.  I studied guitar performance, composition and music education.  I minored in piano and paid for a good part of my education on a cello scholarship.

I have toured across North America and played 1000's of shows since I started playing.  From jazz to metal, classical to pop, I have played every style of music.

I have taught almost as long as I have played.  I was even teaching beginner students when I was in High School with only a few years of playing experience myself.  I started Musiclearning.Com in 1999 as a way to help students that I saw in person each week with material they could reference at home between lessons.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: "I am a complete beginner, will this site work for me?"

Yes. The site starts from scratch with learning your strings and how to hold a pick and moves quickly to playing songs and soloing like a pro 🙂

Q: "I have played for years, will this site help me?"

I have made lessons on the site for every level including lessons I put up to help myself with things I am currently working on. If you feel the site does not have enough information for you, I will gladly refund your money and no questions asked.

Q: "With so many free lessons online, why would I pay for lessons?"

It is true there are plenty of free guitar lessons online and some are very good, however if you really want to see progress, you need more than just random lessons.   You need a method that provides direction and focus to get results you will feel great about.  Results that will make you want to pick up your guitar every day, log in and learn more!

Q: "Are there any tabs on the site?"

No, there are no tabs, however with the lessons designed as they are, you will not need to read music.  The reason there are no tabs is because when I play the 5th fret of my D string I want to know that is a G. Not just the 5th fret of my D string.

Q: "Do I need to have a PayPal account?"

No. You will go through the PayPal page but you can use your Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover or E-Check.
