Let’s face it…
Struggling on your own to learn guitar can feel like you’re going nowhere fast…
Maybe you’re frustrated and tired of trying to teach yourself…
Does it still just not sound “right” when you play along to the songs you're learning?
Or can you only play bits and pieces but never the whole song?
Even worse, you’re overwhelmed with all the information about learning guitar that’s out there!
We’ve all heard stories of people giving up on guitar as things became challenging and their confidence was knocked too many times…
Well, I’m here to tell you somethin' my friend..
It does NOT have to be this way.
You CAN get fast results and it can be fun!
I’m Jimmy Alford and I specialise in teaching and training rock/metal guitarists. From absolute beginners to aspiring shredders who are struggling with those exact problems - stopping them playing guitar how they want.
For over 10 years now, I have helped hundreds of guitarists from Southampton and across the UK and from around the world.
...and I can help you too!
By sharing a much better approach to learning guitar that is proven to get you results quicker because it helps you build confidence that removes the frustration and beats the overwhelm easier and more effectively than taking “normal” guitar lessons…
It helps you to develop your technique, theory knowledge and creativity.
You’ll feel like you’re making progress no matter how much time you spend practicing!
It’s so powerful, yet so simple. You don’t need to be naturally talented…AND you’ll probably spend less time on Youtube or searching around for more stuff to learn.
You’ll definitely notice the difference in your playing…
And the people around you will notice the difference when they hear you play too...
- Partners and friends are able to recognize what you're playing...
- Practicing guitar becomes fun and something you actually want to do instead of put off until the "right" time...
- Self-esteem and confidence again goes through the roof because you’ve learned the most important guitar lesson ever…
" I feel that my technique is better and have a better understanding of music theory which allows me to expand my playing to all parts of the fretboard and to experiment with chords that I would not have previously attempted.
Jimmy is an excellent guitar teacher and has a way of imparting information in way that doesn't feel like "teaching".
My partner has commented many times on how much more confident and varied my playing now sounds since I started taking lessons."
Martin Sirl. UK
- The once anxious bedroom players have developed “rockstar” confidence…
- Stressed and frustrated guys become Zen warriors, calmly practicing their guitar instead of wanting to smash them!
- Dudes that looked like they were ready to give it all up have turned it around...becoming the guitar player they dreamed of being!!!
"I started taking guitar lessons with Jimmy as I wanted to improve my playing generally and get tighter.
I think I have improved a lot. My timing has got much better and my soloing and riffs have come on a long way
A big thing for me is that my confidence has improved. Before I started taking lessons, I used to dread practicing as it didn’t sound that good. I though about giving up…Now, I’m glad I didn’t!"
Sam Dando. Southampton, UK.
- My students are now practicing more efficiently than ever and grow, effortlessly…
- They find their playing easier than ever, even though they’re spending LESS time practicing …
- …and they stand out from the crowd and get picked for bands, gigs, parties and music course placements!
It's all about YOU!
My guitar training is structured and personalised to YOU. Your learning style and what you would like to accomplish.
Quite frankly, a lot of guitar teachers simply instruct without finding out what it is their students actually want to be able to play on guitar...I prefer to teach you as a PERSON sat in front of me and treat you as an individual.
I have several, unique ways of teaching and training my students as not every person is the same or learns in the same manner...
I am proud to say that I teach guitar lessons to people in Southampton, from across the UK and beyond, who have a wide range of abilities from complete beginners to professional guitarists and I am honoured to play a (small) part in their musical adventures and lives...
Think of me as your personal guitar trainer or guitar coach!
I will not only show you “what to play” but, more importantly- HOW TO PRACTICE IT.
I go above and beyond for all my students. I train them, mentor them, coach them and give them extra services and support every step of the way! Liberating them from their frustrations, their lack of understanding, the abyss of all the stuff there is out there and empowering them with the confidence and skills to overcome self-doubt and become good and GREAT guitar players!
Look, I know EXACTLY what you're going through. Like many people, I certainly wasn't "naturally talented". I was REALLY frustrated with my guitar playing and I had to work bloody hard to play the way I wanted to!
But, one day, I found the right guitar teacher…he showed me the "missing links" and how to get results FAST, simply removing all of the frustration from trying to teach myself and helped take my guitar playing to the next level and beyond...
I can do the same for you.
I make guitar lessons focused but FUN and know how to teach my students with the right balance of patience, practical training, and positive encouragement.
"Jimmy has been improving my guitar playing - even my wife recognises the songs I'm playing now! I have to say Jimmy is an excellent guitar teacher using your favourite songs to teach theory and technique. I would recommend anyone wanting to learn to play guitar or wanting to improve technique to contact Jimmy, you will not be disappointed!"
Ian Oliver. Romsey, UK
"I went to Jimmy as a complete novice. He is a great teacher. I have progressed loads in the few months I have had Jimmy as my guitar teacher. Alongside teaching me how to play, Jimmy has helped boost my confidence to play in front of others. The guitar lessons are really well structured and Jimmy has a wealth of knowledge and also resources that he is happy to share."
Alex P. Worcester, UK
Look, I know that starting something new can be a bit scary!
I’ve been there, lots of my students have been there too but I have found that the best thing to give it a go and hopefully see what a difference having lessons will do for your guitar playing.
That's why I offer a FREE trial lesson with no obligation to continue lessons with me and nothing for you to lose.
Worst case scenario, if I don’t deliver, you’ve “wasted” nothing but an hour of your time.
Seriously, today can be the day that you look back on and think…
“Oh yeah...Wow…that’s when my guitar playing really changed!”
Or it can just be another Tuesday, Wednesday or whatever day of the week it is. Nothing changes. And in the future, you might wonder “What if…?”.
So right now, I really want to find out how I can help you today and hope you're just as excited as me to get going!
