I've been lucky enough to learn from some of the greatest guitarists in the world. I've performed with amazingly talented players such as Joe Satriani, Zakk Wylde, Steve Lukather, Larry Mitchell, Stu Hamm, and of course my friend and mentor - Steve Vai.
I started School of McRock as a place where I could share everything I’ve learned from years of playing with these legendary guitarists as well as my own insights and techniques. Take a free a trial - I'm sure you'll love it.
I have been playing guitar for 3 years and I have tried JamPlay, Truefire, YouTube... but the progress I have made in 1 month here with your lessons is unbelievable.”
I've played guitar for about 20 years, always been ok at it, can pull out a solo here and there, but the little things in the lessons that you don't realise help so much!”
It is such a good feeling when there is a click and sudden step forward in playing. School of McRock is a plataeu killer! 🏆”
I've pushed further in the last year than in the last 20! I have a completely different approach to the instrument. 🙌 Check it out. 😊”
I am currently enrolled in your lessons and I am playing stuff I never thought I'd be able to play. Thank you 🙏”
Since I joined I've actually started wearing down picks! Something I've never done in the past so I know I'm playing a lot more these days”
I record myself playing and listening back to some of my old improvisations is like hearing another person. My playing now is more solid and its the first time I am playing like I really mean it. Thank you so much!”
I just checked out the 'Unlocking The Fretboard' lesson and holy cow dude! I'm blown away”
I’m really enjoying the School of McRock content, the structure of the lessons is brilliant.”
I love School of McRock, definitely a game changer!”
Love the site and all of the lessons have been really helpful”
There's already so much in those lessons that I'm finding myself trying to get better organized with my practice time to fit more of your stuff in!”

If you feel like you get stuck playing vertically up and down in the same position, then you’ll love this lesson! It’s packed full of insights into how I approach playing the guitar and how you can combine multiple techniques and sounds together to open up the entire fretboard.
We’re going to cover things like transitioning between alternate picking into sweeping, moving from chromatics into arpeggios and how to use ‘baby’ sweeps to enable licks and phrases that wouldn’t be possible otherwise and will keep your playing sounding fresh and interesting.
Bring all the gain you’ve got because in this lesson we’re going to get your rhythm playing fired up and push things to the breaking point!
We’re going to start from the top and break down everything you need to know to riff – hard. We’ll work on right-hand details, accents, chord strikes, fitting in licks between riffs and of course – how to get the perfect heavy ‘chug’ on your power chords.
