Here's a birds-eye-view of some Amazing Features I've created especially for this course...


This is possibly the most important element of any successful guitarist.  If you're not in tune, everything suffers!  I'll teach you the tuning shortcuts I've learned to get the best intonation every time!


Do you find yourself "crashing and burning" when playing simple licks and solos?  Have you been focusing all your time and effort on your fretting hand?  I'll show you why it's your strumming hand that's the key to coordination, speed, and accuracy!


You don't have to learn a ton of scales to get the best sounds from your playing.  You don't even have to know the entire scale!  I'll teach you how to use what I call "Short Scales" and Pentatonic Scales to navigate the fretboard with ease!


Ever wonder what all those Jazzy and Bluesy chords are that famous Bluegrass flat pickers are always using in their tunes?  I've compiled a list of "Common," "Uncommon," and "ShortChords that will show you how to replicate those legendary sounds!


All the great players like Tony Rice, Bryan Sutton, Doc Watson, David Grier, Kenny Smith, (insert your favorite players here), have their own bag of tricks and licks.  I'll show you some of mine, inspired by these Legendary players, which will inspire you to create your own!

Songs & Fiddle Tunes

Bluegrass wouldn't be Bluegrass without the high, lonesome sounds of traditional songs and fiddle tunes like "Bury Me Beneath the Willow," "St. Anne's Reel," "I Am a Pilgrim," and many more.  I'll show you some of my favorites; I hope they become your favorites, too!

Satisfied Customer and Student Testimonials

Tyson Prior Guitarist / Songwriter

UPDATED TESTIMONIAL: Your course helped me cinch my recording contract here in Canada, I can't thank you enough; you are a great teacher...bless you sir. I've done the singer songwriter thing semi professionally for over 20 years but I lacked licks big time...then I started your course a few years ago. Now I'm much more a compete artist...I recommend your course to everyone who is seeking the next level.

[Song]writers often rely on singing and songs and good bands (haha). I wanted to take my small solo performances to the next level....you sir are a saint!

Original Testimonial: Eric man, I’m very excited about the things to come. It’s almost insane the amount I am learning from you, and I’ve been touring as a guitarist for years. Could never really get anywhere with flatpicking until I started with your lessons. Seriously grateful to have you to learn from. Been a guitar man since I could walk. You have made these licks possible.

I knew I had the feel the dexterity and the passion; just couldn’t grab it til you made me. As a writer, this is a crazy valuable tool just because of how much more expressive my playing can be in all genres. Once you nail “Blackberry Blossom”, “Sultans of Swing” seems fairly elementary. Thank you so much from Canada, Eric.

You’re giving my audiences a better guitarist!

Eric , I have been playing for over 30 years and only recently did I discover a taste for Bluegrass. Jazz trained and a rock/metal player for most of my life, the tonality of Bluegrass escaped me for months.

I tried to educate myself on the music theory to no real avail as little of any worth is offered online. Your videos advanced my education on this subject to light speed!

Bluegrass Guitar Essentials is exactly what I was looking for. I've been playing guitar all my life, but as someone new to the Bluegrass style I needed something that focused on the unique techniques of Bluegrass without covering the ABCs I knew from other genres.

Eric's teaching does exactly what you need if you can already play some guitar but want to learn bluegrass.

I've learned more from you in the past month than I have from anyone else in the 20 years I've been playing.

You are a superb teacher.

Gregory Hurd Guitarist
Joe McShane Guitarist / Performer

I really like the way you break the licks down in your videos, Eric.

You really have the right approach to teaching.

Carter Johnston YouTube Student

I've been trying to get into Bluegrass for a while now, and what I've been missing is something as structured as what you are doing with [Bluegrass Guitar Essentials]. I love the practice tips and licks. They go perfectly with the way I practice (I use a metronome and a stopwatch religiously).

The sheet music is extremely helpful. I really like the fast pace of the course ... you obviously spent a lot of time on this. Every lesson seems well thought out and leads to a goal.

It's like having a road map to where I want to be musically, whereas before I was just picking up some stuff here and there from youtube. I don't really have the time it takes to get a bunch of Bluegrass albums and pick them apart, and this is exactly what I've been looking for.

T.R. Reid YouTube Student

Eric,I'm 57 years old, & have been playing since I was 4. I spent most of my years playing Country & Folk music, except for a few years in my high school days when I started playing Bluegrass with some guys in school. After high school, I went back to the Country & Folk stuff.

Then in the late 90's, I got heavy into Bluegrass again (along with my 2 sons) & have stayed there. I love it, but have never been able to grasp flatpicking. It always seemed so complicated & difficult.

Thanks to your videos & instruction, I'm finally making some headway. I started 2 days ago...In just 2 days, I'm feeling capable...finally! Our weekly jam session is tonight, & although I may not try to fit the lick in tonight, I plan to next week for sure.

You have no idea how excited I am, & how thankful I am for you & your instruction. Just wanted to let you know what a blessing you are.

  • Learn Guitar in the comfort of your own home or on-the-go with your laptop or mobile device!
  • Enjoy reviewing your lessons over and over again via video files!

If you were to take private lessons with most guitar teachers, it would end up costing you at least a whopping $500 to receive the same amount of instruction you'll be receiving with my course—for less than half the investment!

Not to mention the countless hours of recording, editing, filming, uploading (you get the picture) it takes to create a project that covers such an immense scope of material at such a small price tag!

The Bottom Line: I've poured myself into every little note, every chart and diagram, and every audio track to create a course that not only delivers the goods promised, but makes it fun to learn as well.
