This program has been designed and beta tested with you in mind.  Not only will you develop the chops that you've always wanted, you will also develop a thorough knowledge of the fretboard and the ability to solo in any and all keys.  You'll be able to solo using different modes.  All of this will give you the tools necessary to develop your own personal style on the guitar.

Instructions for Week 1 (Beginners see below)*:

1.  Play the first track below ("Week 1 Am C 63 bpm").

2.  While the track is playing, play uninterrupted 8th notes in A minor.  No slides, hammer-ons or pull-offs.  Above all, no stopping!  Don't stop until the full 10 minutes is done.

3.  Take a 2 minute break and repeat 2 more times.

4.  The next day do the same thing with the next faster backing track below for 6 straight days ending the week playing with the final track below ("Week 1 Am C 72 bpm").  Take a day off and then start Week 2.

Detailed directions and an overview of the program are listed in the Directions for Week 1 link below.  Weeks 2 - 18 are further below.

This 30 minutes a day, over the course of 18 weeks, will get you playing at unbelievable playing speeds, all while learning your scales, arpeggios, modes and playing in different keys.  Amazing huh!?  Give it a try and get started!
