What guitarists say...

The lazy way is not a generic guitar course that teaches you random exercises, it's so much more! The program provides a solid practice routine for every kind of guitar player, it's perfect for someone that has a lot of free time or for someone like me that's working full time and has limited practice time.

If you are stuck in a rut look no further!
The Lazy way is a sure fire way to learn or brush up on those essential techniques that will undoubtedly make you a better guitar player.
The Lazy Way has jump started my guitar playing.

I’d stopped practising altogether, but this was a fantastic way to re-engage, and the lessons challenged me at the right level to keep me interested and improve my playing.

The biggest obstacle in my guitar playing is my own time management and lack of practice structure.

The Lazy Way solves those problems as it's structured in such a way that you can plan ahead of time and when you do sit down to practice you don't waste time playing things that don't help you improve.
The lazy way is an excellent program. A great way to learn new skills, along side understanding and improving current practical and theory skills to expand your guitar playing knowledge.
The Lazy Way is an excellent program for guitarist that struggled with lots of plateau-ing and not knowing where to further their learning.

It’s also a great add-on to my other guitar practices and exercises. Breaking down the exercises in bite-sized form helps me to stay motivated on the course and not get overwhelmed. I highly recommend this to any aspiring intermediate players!!

The Lazy Way is for you if…
  • You can already play the guitar a bit, past the beginner stage.​
  • You are looking to get out of your current practice rut.​

  • You’ve had a break from playing, but keep meaning to pick your instrument up again and just need a bit of motivation and structure to get going.​

  • You want to be a quality guitarist and you want clear, actionable steps to get there.​

  • You don’t have the time, or patience, to spend hours practising.​

  • You can’t be bothered searching the internet for new practice material each time you sit down with your instrument

No, this is not a complete guitar learning program for beginners.

The Lazy Way is for people who have learned the basics of guitar playing but are struggling to apply them effectively.

If you are unsure of your level of guitar playing just drop me an email and we can work out together if The Lazy Way is a good fit for you!

It’s a 12-week cycle of guitar practices.

I send you a new practice session directly to your inbox four times a week. Each session is clearly laid out in an email, with video demonstrations.

No portals or website logins, all you need to do is open your email, pick up your instrument, do the exercise and then get back to your life!

The concept that glues The Lazy Way together is that of Little and Often.

Just 20 mins of focused guitar practice, a few days a week, that’s it.

The Lazy Way takes the effort out of being a slick guitarist with a simple way of practising that will change your guitar playing habits for good.

Yes! When you sign up to the The Lazy Way you receive four emails a week for 12 weeks that include:

  • A video demonstration

When you sign up to the The Lazy Way you are committing to pay for the full 12 week cycle.

Look if you just really can’t be arsed to practice at all, then no, you won’t like it.
If you want to become a better guitarist and you’re wiling to set aside 20 minutes, 4 times  week, then yes you will like it!

The Lazy Way is designed to help you get the most out of your playing, guide you to practice the right things, challenge you out of your comfort zone and take all the faff out of practising. If you want results and you need a bit of a push in the right direction without sacrificing hours of time and effort, then this is for you!

Up to you, but you don’t have to!

The Lazy Way is designed to complement your ongoing guitar study.

This is for you…

  • if you have 1-2-1 guitar tuition


  • if you are a member of an awesome online membership


  • if you prefer to teach yourself in your own time

The Lazy Way is NOT teaching you how to learn the guitar.

Instead The Lazy Way is guiding you through a simple, structured and consistent way of practising that WILL change your guitar playing habits and provide a noticeable improvement in ability and understanding. WITHOUT spending hours of your time on it!

Think of The Lazy Way like a meal plan: it’s not teaching you how to cook – it’s showing you what to cook, quickly, simply, healthily and frequently!

Yes, The Lazy Way is sent directly to your emails and it is yours 

We just drop every practice directly into your email inbox, you could take 5 seconds to set up a Lazy Way sub-folder if you fancied, or you can just search through your emails to find past plans. Either way, they are yours forever.

Nope, this is an effective and low cost 12 week practice plan.

Don’t be a quitter, sign up, hold yourself accountable and finish strong. If you really didn’t enjoy it, don’t sign up to the next one!
