I think this is a very valid question, and honestly, for some people, I think learning on Youtube is a very good option. But let’s look at this in perspective. A quick search on google for online guitar lesson shows an average of about £50 an hour. This doesn’t include high quality tabs, videos you can search back on over and over and most importantly, it’s not coming from someone who’s playing you actually want to learn (I’m assuming since you’re on this page, my cover of this song was something you wanted to learn). If you learn on Youtube, you are learning in a very scattered way, and you will have to find some information from one person, some information from another and then get mismatching tabs or chords somewhere else. You also won’t get the insights into my gear, setup and thought processes that I provide in this lesson. You likely will have to spend a lot of valuable time looking through the countless videos trying to find the best ones, the ones that best match each other, the ones with the best guitar tones etc etc when everything you need is already organised and provided conveniently for you in this lesson.
Here’s the most important thing though – To tell you the truth, I used to learn everything free from Youtube, but I realised a few years ago that if you pay for something, your brain assigns it more value and so you automatically push yourself more in order to make the most of your investment. Because of this trick in the brain, I now pay for most things online that I want to learn because it gives me an extra layer of motivation which is EXTREMELY valuable and important in my view. And that’s not just me trying to take your money – it’s a genuine psychological trick that you can play on your brain (do your own research on this – there’s tonnes on Google about this – even a TED talk on it). If you pay money, you will get a better result, and you will become a better guitar player. Period.
So if you would like a really complete view of every aspect of how to play this song and the gear I use, and the price tag isn’t something that is going to empty your bank account, I promise you that you will feel a lot better and be a much better player after buying this lesson, than from hours and hours of looking all over Youtube.

If I was a marketing expert, I would say that this is ‘for people of all levels’ so that I could sell more, but honestly, if you’re a complete beginner, this will probably be quite difficult for you. I assume a basic knowledge of the guitar and certain terms and move through the course relatively fast. It still can be done, with enough practice, I just wouldn’t call it a ‘beginners course’. **TIP: If you ARE a beginner and you’re determined to learn this song, the videos are private videos on Youtube so you can slow them down to half speed to make it easier to keep up with! If you are watching on mobile, you can use an app called ‘Speedtube’ to do this!
The course itself will take approximately 1.5 – 2 hours hours to complete, but once you’ve complete the course, going back through it and learning it yourself could take anywhere from a few hours to a few months – that really is up to you and how much you practice!
If you hate it (or you hate me), and get nothing from this lesson, no problem, I’ll give you a full refund within 30 days of purchase, no questions asked! (Please Note: This is totally based on an honour system and I totally leave myself open and vulnerable with this, so I simply ask that you don’t abuse this and are honest with me!) Thank You 🙂

This course is a crash course on using your DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) to record yourself and your performance. It is packed with over an hour of information on installing the DAW, creating a new project, the interface, the tools, and finally how to record and export your performance. I use Logic Pro X, but you can apply most of the principles across the board to whatever DAW you may be using, bearing in mind there might be slight variations depending on which software you use.
I have studied many courses on using your DAW, but most of them are either really hard to follow, or give far more information than is necessary, so I’ve made a simple to follow course, and reduced it down to everything you need to know so you won’t get overwhelmed by irrelevant information.
