So how much does all this cost?

Truly, these lessons are priceless.

Even if you could afford to fly to Nashville and somehow convince the top pros there to teach you personally, it would still literally take you years and cost thousands of dollars. Check out the chart:

DVDs save you tons of money because you can enjoy and learn from them for months and even years... and get thousands of dollars worth of learning out of them.

Even by DVDs standards, these are worth $49.95 a pop, easy. So you're getting at least $300 worth of the best guitar instruction under the planet.

But you will not pay $300.

$127 gets you in the door! (plus shipping) If you want the full meal deal of all 6 DVDs (which I highly recommend), you can grab them for just a few bucks more.

I think most guitarists would agree, it's a tiny price to pay to get into the wicked chickin pickin' universe.

This course is going to transform your chops like crazy, seriously.

Just follow along with the tabs and I guarantee that your playing is going to jump to the next level of coolness almost overnight.

If for some strange reason it doesn't, just send the DVDs back and I'll gladly give you a refund.

You know you want these DVDs! ...and believe me, you'll be glad that you ordered them. And also check this out: I'm the one taking all the risk here.
