"The 5-Day Guitar Challenge is designed to give our students skills and confidence," said Charlie Wallace, Founder and CEO of Guitar Master Method. "As they master each lesson, they will be learning a musical vocabulary perfected by generations of guitar masters who came before them."

ABOUT THE FREE 5-DAY GUITAR CHALLENGE
The purpose of the Challenge is to engage GMM's large and enthusiastic following and reach a wider market of guitar enthusiasts. Four influential guitarists were chosen as models for a teaching solo for participants to study and learn to play. The players chosen were Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, and Jimi Hendrix, each of whom has a unique style that has deeply influenced the art of modern guitar playing.
By the end of the 5-Day Challenge, participants will understand how to put together a guitar solo for their own performances, drawing on the rich heritage of past performers, and adding their own innovative touches to make the solo their own. The Challenge includes:
Facebook where current followers and new members can congregate to record and share their lessons, ask for input from peers, and enjoy a community of guitar enthusiasts
to GMM's team of guitar teachers and professionals, including founder Charlie Wallace, for questions, feedback, and inspiration.
#3 Series of 5 daily events featuring Charlie Wallace on 3-way split-screen videos, with step-by-step instructions on the precise fretboard and picking techniques for producing a cool-sounding solo.
