5-Lesson Foundational Series

Learn THE Foundational Concept that

will enable you to Master the Guitar!

Is the guitar neck a mystery to you?

Tired of the hunt-and-peck, trial-and-error approach?

Are you beginning to think that there must be a better way?

This 5-lesson series will give you THE foundation from which a complete understanding of the guitar neck derives. You will learn:

  • The names and locations of 12 notes

  • How to memorize and practice these 12 notes in the most optimum way possible.

  • From these 12 notes you will learn to visualize all other notes on the neck without memorizing every note on every string. You will be able to find ANY note, anywhere!

  • From these 12 notes all chords, scales, arpeggios, etc. can be visualized.

This lesson series includes:

  • 5 lessons

  • 14 pages of explanatory text

  • 17 fretboard diagrams, pictures and other graphics

  • 8 demonstration video links

All guitar lessons produced by Master Guitar School

presuppose a working knowledge of these 5 lessons!

Want a better idea of what you'll get? Here is the Demonstration Video for Lesson 1:

This method is so easy a little kid can do it! Here is a 7-YEAR-OLD doing Lesson 3:


Retail price for the 5-Lesson Foundational Series is $39: Anyone can purchase - if you want to pay full price without signing up and no other strings attached, just click on the button below:

These 5 lessons are available for free to site members in a webpage-based form. Go here to access the free version. If you are not a site member you will be prompted to sign up in order to view the lessons.


Or, if you prefer, you can sign up as a site member and $19.00 will purchase you a PDF download to your device of choice by clicking on the button below.

What does it mean to be a Site Member?


First of all, sign up is free!


  • Free Lessons: You will have access to free lessons in the "Members Only" area of the website. These are mostly webpage-based. Last count was over 100 and it's being added to regularly.

  • Monthly Newsletter: You will receive the Master Guitar School Newsletter the 2nd Tuesday of each month. Most of the monthly newsletters contain a free lesson not published previously anywhere else. Besides the free lesson, each newsletter contains recent blog links and any other communication I deem pertinent to Site Members.

  • Members-Only Discounts: These discounts are available at all times to Site Members and are at least 50% off - in some cases more. Compare the Site Member price to the full price given above for the 5-Lesson Foundational Series for example.

  • New Product Launches: New products are launched first to Site Members only. A new product launch typically lasts 5 days and the product is priced even lower than the Members-Only Discount. For instance, the Members-Only Discount price for Unique Chord Voicings is $69. The launch price was $59. The full price is $149. Again; these launches are to Site Members only!

  • Skype/FaceTime Consults: I call this a "consult" rather than a "lesson" for several reasons. This consult is an on-demand deal for site members. It can be used for whatever you want - anything related to guitar or lessons that you've viewed, purchased &/or downloaded from Master Guitar School; it can be used as a feedback loop to make sure you understand the lesson and are drilling it correctly. The price is $30.00 and the guaranteed default time is 30 minutes. I am willing to spend extra time at no extra charge if necessary and if my schedule allows. As a site member you can use this option whenever you feel the need. 

  • Personal Response to Questions via Email: If your question can be adequately dealt with without a Skype/FaceTime consult I will give Site Members personal attention via Email at no charge.

  • Priority Scheduling for One-On-One Lessons: I need to preface this; I am currently teaching about 35 private students a week and don't want any more. There is a waiting list. However, if you are a Site Member you will have priority relative to the waiting list. 

  • Blog Notifications: I try to publish a blog every week. The blog content is random; whatever I feel like writing about, though it's always music &/or guitar-related. Some of the blog categories are: Free Lessons, Technique, Music Theory, Stories, Philosophy, Questions and Answers, Rants & Musings, Gear and many more. Although the blogs are available to anyone, Site Members receive an email notification with a direct link whenever a blog is published.


The guitar has been a Grand Obsession of mine for over 50 years. I love everything about it. I've been a full-time professional performing musician since the early seventies. I've taught 50-100 personal students a week since the early eighties.


I know what it takes to play, teach and learn. I'm passionate about playing as well as helping people obtain the priceless value that I've received from music and the guitar.

Any questions about the 5-Lesson Foundational Series? Any questions about anything guitar &/or music related? Questions about Site Membership that I didn't answer above? 

Contact me. Let's talk.
