Get Out of Your Guitar Playing Rut.

Learn essential guitar warm-ups and finger exercises every Monday. See if you can beat the speed challenge while maintaining accuracy and proper guitar technique!

Stop Playing The Same 5 Guitar Riffs.

Every Tuesday you'll learn a new guitar lick that you can add to your guitar playing immediately, but there's a twist...this lick will be used in Wednesday's improvisation session. 

Become a Well Rounded Guitar Player.

Wednesdays are exhilarating because you'll learn a new scale, then you'll improvise over the provided backing track. But you've already got a head start because Tuesday's guitar lick is the perfect starting point!

Practice Daily, Even if You're Super Busy.

On Thursdays you'll learn the chord progression of the backing track that you improvised over on Wednesday. You now how the pieces to write your own song or jam with others!

Focus With Every Practice.

Every Friday of this ultimate guitar practice routine you'll repeatedly be exposed to what chords fit into which keys so you get better at stuff like arrangement & learning new songs. Plus you'll improve your chord transition speed and accuracy!

What People are Saying...

The BEST feature is that I can go at my own learning pace. I am encouraged to set my own goals and just play.

I feel like I am encouraged to push myself outside my own comfort zone. I am not a performer, but I know this is a safe place to put myself out there for self improvement. And… just maybe… maybe I could be a rock star someday…. I am enjoying the progress and interaction of fell TAC-ites. It's the "I'm not alone in this" that feels good. - Anna K

TAC has the best customer service of any website I know, and I do not mean only music sites. All sites. That’s huge!

I would absolutely recommend TAC to others for one reason: I am a better player because I joined TAC. It is also a lot of fun because of the sense of community, but that would mean nothing if TAC did not help us improve as musicians. It does, so it gets my endorsement! - Benjamin S

I was slightly reluctant to sign up as I didn’t know how much I’d be able to use it. There’s also an incredible amount of free stuff out there on the web so I wondered if I needed to pay anything.

I signed up as I lacked focus, didn’t ever do warm-up exercises and have a poor theory awareness. I seemed to just pick my guitar up and play the same things over and spend an eternity trying to work out songs without getting there.

The GREAT thing about the site for me is you always get a warm-up exercise. It’s even better now as you can concentrate on it for the week and it’s related to that week. You get a lick, a chord progression, an improv and just as important, a recap on old stuff.

So the main thing for me is I’m doing different things as opposed to the same old thing I used to do – exactly what I signed up for. - Stu R

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it too advanced for me?

Many new members know a few chords at best. If you’re a total beginner, you’ll be starting where many TAC members started before you. So no, this shouldn’t be too advanced for you!

How often do you release new lessons?

Every weekday a new Practice Challenge is released. I also constantly release add-ons to the fundamentals learning path that starts at Acoustic Guitar 101 and goes to Fingerstyle 101 and Flatpicking 101. New courses like this get released regularly.  

Any contracts or commitments?

Nope. You can upgrade or cancel your account anytime – for any reason. If you cancel before the end of the billing period, you’ll retain access until that period is over.

Are the lessons and courses downloadable? 

Yes! All tabs, videos, and backing tracks are downloadable and the Practice Plan exercises can be “Favorited” so you can come back to them later. 

What style does TAC focus on?

Primarily bluegrass, fingerstyle, and fingerpicking but we also incorporate blues and country.

What is available to me as soon as I sign up?

You’ll be able to jump into the current month’s practice plan which is a daily guitar challenge that rotates between warm ups, licks, improvisation, and chord progressions. You’ll also have access to my Acoustic Guitar 101 course, Fingerpicking Jumpstart, Flatpicking Jumpstart, Strumming Jumpstart, and Acoustic Maintenance course.

Can non-US residents sign up?

Of course! We’ve got members from all over the world. 

Can I ask Tony questions directly?

Yes! Every month is the live TAC Hangout and Q&A where you can ask Tony anything. He’s also on the site daily replying to comments, reviewing performance submissions, and answering questions. 

What if I fall behind?

The Practice Plan is not sequential so you can do one challenge a week or all five and not feel like you’re missing something important. The program is designed so that you can take a day off or a week or two off and then jump right back in where you left off. The only pressure you’ll feel is from yourself, and that’s a great thing!
