I've performed with so many amazing musicians - 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.
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!”

In this lesson I break down the solo section from a track of mine called ‘Storms’ and guide you through all of the different techniques that come together to make it happen.
As well as guiding you through the solo note by note, I’ll also be pointing out all of the nuances and tips that you can incorporate into your own playing which will help you not only nail this passage, but also improve your ability to construct your own killer sounding solos!
People often make the mistake of thinking that guitarists must have huge hands or really long fingers, people assume this about me all the time! In reality my hands are completely average-sized but this doesn’t mean that my reach has to be average…
In this lesson I’m going to show you multiple ways you can stretch your fretting hand to improve your reach, build up your finger strength and transform your playing for the better. If you’ve been practicing hard but feel like you aren’t seeing the gains you should be, then this could be the lesson that changes everything for you.
