It's time to make your guitars proud to be played by you!

Many guitarists have actually been playing for many years and yet seems like their level does not reflect all this time spent on the instrument. Many of them get discouraged and compensate with excessive accumulation of gear and guitars they don't really know how to play. They essentially give up and become collectors when all they really want to do is learn to PLAY! For real. 

 

This is usually due to the same roadblocks:

‚ĚĆ Poor knowledge of Music Theory

‚ĚƬ†Limiting fretboard navigation skills and bad habits

‚ĚƬ†Undefined goals and inefficient practice routines

How I can help...

 

As a passionate guitarist, educator, and college professor, I've spent years gathering the best teaching practices from hundreds of private and college students. I've developed a method that will quickly and efficiently allow you to:

 

‚úÖ Understand Music Theory in a useful and approachable way

✅ Navigate your fretboard freely and confidently 

‚úÖ Understand chord progression and what you can play over what

✅ Always practice with a purpose

My books are out!

These are the books I wish I had when I was a self-taught guitarist trying to understand theory... All the books I could find never seemed to explain the whole thing coherently or they required a pre-existing knowledge of theory or note-reading that I simply didn't have. 

You will understand EVERYTHING you need to know about theory with a few promises: 

✅ You don't need to read music

✅ You don't need to have any previous knowledge of music theory

✅ You only need common sense

Hey there! 

 My name is Guillaume Metz (Americans also call me Will) and I am a self-taught professional guitarist, author, professor, and mentor. 

I'm also a huge science nerd and was actually supposed to become an engineer. But instead, I decided to use this part of my brain that is obsessed with understanding everything, to dissect Music Theory in a logical way so that I could finally understand how music works under the hood.

Now I help guitarists around the world play to their fullest potential and thrive to empower and educate them thanks to a clear understanding of music theory and fretboard navigation.
