Introducing ... Mastering Control: Simple Guitar Dominance


We know and understand the importance of physical technique with regard to great guitar playing, and you now understand that it's all based on the foundation of fundamental, physical control. Imagine how it will feel to start building the technique necessary to play what inspires you and made you want to play in the first place, instead of whatever random songs some method book or common guitar teacher says you need to learn!


Self-trust as a player is critical to achieving higher levels of guitar mastery and ability, and confidence is needed for this self-trust to develop. Playing confidence and playing ability have a reciprocal relationship; each strengthening the other, and you'll cultivate both when you dig into Mastering Control. Confidence is also a learned and transferable skill you'll be able to better apply to other areas of your life, once you've gained more of it through your improved guitar playing. 


A primary aspect of all the Guitar Antihero trainings is rugged individuality, gained through the personal power and authority of better guitar playing. But the truth is, the vast majority of people with guitars are more or less "playing around" at guitar playing, rather than actually doing what they want to do with the instrument: you and I both know this is true. With Mastering Control, you're giving yourself access to a system most players will never know; thereby breaking apart from the masses. If you're the kind of player who seeks more from their playing, then this is for you.


The methods you get inside Mastering Control have been proven to just plain work, day in and day out. Unlike some guitar instruction you've probably seen, there's no fluff, no filler, and no bullshit here. You're gaining the advantage of accessing workable techniques and applications, with all the guesswork removed, so you can start becoming the guitarist you aspire to be right now, today.

Here's What You Get in the Mastering Control 5 Week Training Course Today

  5 Weekly Trainings that help you gain physical control of the guitar that gets Results & commands Respect
  Week 1: Overview and Building the Foundation

Week 1 is where you learn to avoid the common (and mostly ignored) mistake that stops most players from achieving long-term success, and why making "friends" with the guitar is vital to the process. Once you really get this, your playing and perspective will only change for the better.

Week 2: Placement, Pressure & Pragmatic Fingerings

Here's where you discover why the usual method of just plunking down your fingers and squeezing strings sucks, and how to use correct fretting hand mechanics for maximum playing efficiency. Avoid the traps most guitarists succumb to with what you learn in Week 2.

  Week 3: Tension & Release (Unity of Opposites)

In Week 3, you're learning about the "Unity of Opposites" regarding ideas of tension and release: many people advise releasing all tension while playing, but there's a right way to actually do this to achieve great results. Discover it here and watch your playing become more controlled and effective.

  Week 4: Economy of Movement & Application of "Less is More"

The old adage "Less is More" isn't always true of great guitar playing, but it certainly applies to a few critical areas of your technique. Here you'll learn how to leverage the power of "Macrocosm vs. Microcosm" for maximum picking & strumming efficiency & control, along with more effective fretting hand technique. When you adopt the methods learned in Week 4, you'll strengthen your playing so that when you decide to play "more", your results are also more.

Week 5: Purposeful & Bold Progression of Technique 

Every action we take should be purpose-driven, and this is no different with your guitar playing. The problem is, most players use a haphazard approach to increasing their technique without a definite purpose; moving from one thing to the next, in hopes of improvement. What you learn in Week 5 solves this problem for good, and helps you establish a solid playing foundation that's firmly rooted in reliable, unshakeable purpose.
