"What Are People Saying"

After years of watching a guitar I bought slowly gather dust in the corner, I signed up for G4 a few short months ago. It has given me everything I need to really start making progress. In fact, even though I've still an awful lot to learn, I'm astonished at how quickly I've progressed. I'm now equipped to strum along (with a bit of practice) to a wide range of my favourite songs. Being a slightly older student with no great ambitions to play for anyone but myself, that was all I'd originally hoped to achieve - but I can now imagine myself becoming a genuinely competent and rounded guitar player if I keep it up and put in the practice.Shane Allessio is a superb musician and teacher, and the G4 method is really good at structuring learning of all the complementary skills in a sensible order while getting you playing real songs in the shortest possible time - and that's a real motivator. Highly recommended. - Original source Google Reviews

 I never thought I would find such a teacher in the local area. As a virtually self-taught double bass player, I can do some things quite well and others terribly. The G4 method is rigorous yet sufficiently flexible to achieve results from all standards of musician. Matched with Shane's immense skill, knowledge and experience, I am now on a path to addressing the gaps in my musical ability and becoming the musician I want to be. Shane also teaches my son bass guitar. He has progressed greatly in just six months, loves his lessons and is motivated to practice. Shane is a great mentor, always patient and supportive but driving us to achieve our best.- Original source Google Reviews

How Does G4 GUITAR Help You Learn Guitar?

More For Less 

The 80/20 Principle says that 80% of results come from 20% of efforts. As an example it suggests that 80% of songs are written using only 20% of chords and, 80% of songs use only 20% of the notes. This idea we discovered applies to almost every aspect of guitar playing. More importantly it means not all guitar practice is equal. Some practice (exercises) will result in much more progress for far less effort. Imagine if you could practice half as much and actually progress faster than most other people. This is what the G4 GUITAR METHOD is all about.

Sense Of Progress

Do you know why most people give up on guitar in the first 6 months? The guitar is not easy of course but that's not the main reason people quit. The number one reason we have discovered is they lack a 'sense of progress'. Having a sense of progress it turns out is critical for sticking to any long term goal. When we feel like we are stuck and going nowhere we see no point in continuing. At G4 GUITAR we understand this and have created a method based on Checklists that track progress thereby giving you a sense of progress.  

Skills Based Learning 

The secret to our success is a skills based program. In most sports today you'll see this approach applied. When I was a child football training consisted of 20% fitness (jogging around the park) and 80% playing the game (running the ball, tackling, kicking). There was little actual skill work. E.g. how to hold, catch or run with a ball. Today when you talk to professional sports players its almost all skill work. Developing skills is the path to rapid progress and superior technique. This means you'll be playing your favourite songs sooner and more accurately/
