I will do at least 2 YouTube live events each month covering a wide range of topics for beginner and intermediate guitar players. If you miss the live events you will be able to watch them because I will put the link to them on the Facebook page. That way you still have access to them to watch when it's convenient for you.

Thoughout any given month I will host small group Skype lessons. The group will have between 1 and 10 students. This will be your opportunity to meet with me personally and I can answer direct questions that you have about guitar.

Get started now!

Each month we will be producing excluse guitar lesson videos just for the GuitArmy. These videos will cover a wide range of topics.

Some of those topics will be:

  • guitar riffs
  • how to play songs
  • chords

  • soloing techniques
  • rhythm lessons
  • sight reading notes
  • guitar tabs
  • whatever topics you as a member want me to cover

You will have access to the current month's guitar lessons and all previous month's lessons. So over time the GuitArmy will build up quite and arsenal of lessons to go back and check out.

As a student of GuitArmy you will have access to the GuitArmy Facebook group page.

Chris is hands down the best guitar teacher that I have worked with over the past 20 years of playing. I have been taking Skype lessons with him over the past few months and my playing has progressed tremendously. The secret to Chris' success is that he understands music theory so well that he can help you apply meaningful theory based techniques without overwhelming you with details. However, if details are your thing don't hesitate to drill in deeper with him. Also, Chris goes above and beyond to ensure my time in between lessons will be productive and enjoyable. Finally, and maybe most importantly, Chris is fun to learn with and I don't recall a lesson where we weren't laughing out loud about something. I like Skype Guitar Lessons for the convenience, but GuitArmy and Chris will keep me hooked on the concept for many months to come.

I'm a working professional, and have been taking guitar lessons with Chris for several year now. My understanding of the guitar, and ability to play have improved dramatically ever since I've taken classes with Chris. Chris is extremely knowledgeable about the instrument, and his accessible style of teaching make learning a true pleasure. Chris also works very hard to fit lessons into my schedule - which has been absolutely wonderful. I look forward to continuing my lessons with Chris for many years to come.

Student Testimonial (Beginner Guitar Lessons - 10 Lessons)

Hi Chris, thanks so much for reaching out! I'm about half way through lesson 10 of your Beginner lessons via GuitArmy, so I was researching more of your teaching, and what's next... and found your GuitArmy! I've gotta tell ya, something about your explanations, your method of teaching, and the detailed resources provided, you've connected so many dots for me -- it's appreciated beyond words! I'm mostly self-taught, regret that I started so late in life, and have tried other online resources, but yours has been the most comprehensive! As a corporate facilitator to adult learners myself, I just wanted to express my gratitude!


I've always wanted to learn the guitar but I couldn't commit to actually driving to and attending a class every week. Chris makes it so easy and convenient with the Skype lessons. He's a great instructor and I'm learning so quickly! My goal is to learn Hotel California in six months and with GuitArmy, I have no doubt that I will.
