The songs are beautifully put together, and taught in bite size pieces that enable one to progress towards learning the entire song.
Adam’s teaching style is such that it feels as if he is sitting in the room with you, walking you through the piece. I highly recommend these videos, it’s helped take my playing ability to a higher level.”

Adam´s playing appealed to me, and yet I learned even more from his approach, philosophy and attitude towards the instrument and towards music making and performance in general.
I have been a happy amateur guitar player all my life, and yet his insights gave me better habits.
It helped my focus on what is important, and I recommend his site to all my friends.”

Adam’s talent extends as a teacher just as easily as his ability to create amazing music.
He is inviting, concise, and helps you build confidence as a player approaching his catalog.
If you are willing to put in the effort, he provides all the tools you need to feel successful, and he presents the information in a sincere, insightful, and fun way!”

His gift is making a difficult piece sound simple and he helps me do the same.”
