Letter from Nate Savage

Nate Savage

Playing the guitar is both fun and rewarding. So, why is it difficult to make steady and consistent progress? Why do some students seem to learn much faster than others? Do they just have a natural skill advantage or is there something more to it than that?

I've spent the last 16 years teaching the guitar to students around the world. From what I've seen, the most successful students have one thing in common. That is, they have clarity on the exact steps they need to take in order to get better. They don't spend their time wondering what to do next, while playing the same old riffs over and over again.

Now, there are thousands of video guitar lessons available online, but the unfortunate reality is that these lessons are inconsistent, disorganized, and often unqualified. This can really stall out your progress and even lead to bad habits that will set you back.

With this in mind, I created The Guitar System training pack. It provides you with a complete roadmap so you'll know exactly what to do in order to learn rock, blues, reggae, metal, punk, jazz, fingerstyle, classical, country, bluegrass, and more. The step-by-step video lessons, fun play-along songs, and unique training tools make learning easier than ever.

To your success on the guitar,

Nate Signature

The Guitar System Is Organized Into Five Sections

The Fundamentals

The Fundamentals

The Guitar System starts with the fundamentals that every guitarist needs to know before even picking up the guitar. In the first part of this section, you'll learn about holding the guitar, the names of the open strings, tuning the guitar, how to read basic tabs, how to read chord diagrams, and essential information about guitar gear.

With those basics down, you'll learn to play your very first song using some simple chords and melodies. From there, you'll learn some of the most useful chords and techniques as you dive into lessons on power chords, palm muting, open chords, and strumming. This is where you'll begin to make real music on the guitar, while developing the proper techniques needed for future growth.

Beginner Lessons

With the fundamentals in place, it's time to take your playing to the next level with beginner rhythm and lead guitar lessons. It doesn't matter if you play acoustic or electric guitar, this section will help you build a rock solid foundation for the future. The step-by-step lessons cover minor chords, walk-downs, bar chords, the basics of lead guitar, the blues, essential guitar scales, and much more.

Further along in this section, you'll be introduced to the foundations of fretboard layout, have an opportunity to expand your chord library, learn new scales, refine your strumming & picking techniques, and apply everything you've learned along to fun jam tracks. That's what it's all about - applying ideas and concepts to real music.

Beginner Lessons
Intermediate Lessons

Intermediate Lessons

This section picks up right where the beginner section left off. You'll get a chance to learn about crosspicking, new riffs, major keys, and new chords to push your rhythm playing further. Then the lead guitar lessons will teach you some new techniques, essential scales and arpeggios, and much more. By the end of these lessons, you'll understand how to use the scales to perform inspiring solos!

There is also an intermediate section that is all about playing the blues. The rhythm lessons cover blues chords, blues chord progressions, blues riffs, and some fun jam tracks that you can use to apply everything you learn. The lead lessons will help you understand the blues scale, blues scale shapes, blues licks, 7th arpeggios, and soloing over blues jam tracks. These lessons will help you grow as a musician and will improve the way you play any style of music.

Advanced Lessons

This section is dedicated to the serious guitarists out there who want to push the limits and unlock their full potential on the guitar. Your rhythm skills will grow exponentially with lessons on advanced strumming, new riffs, new chords, inversions, new keys, advanced theory, and much more. You'll quickly approach the point at which you'll be able to attack and master any style of music that you choose.

You'll also start to see the big picture when it comes to playing lead guitar, with lessons on new scales, advanced lead techniques, improvisation concepts, scale sequencing, sweep picking, the CAGED sequence, modes, and more. Each new section includes jam tracks that you can use to apply your own creative ideas as you begin to express yourself on the guitar.

Advanced Lessons
Styles and Theory

Styles & Theory

This section is always ready for you whenever you want to explore new musical styles. This is in addition to the many styles already covered within the beginner, intermediate, and advanced sections. You can jump into lessons on Metal, Fingerstyle, Country, Classical, Spanish Classical, Bluegrass, or Jazz. Plus this section includes full live band performances of ten exclusive jam tracks.

Don't worry if you are intimidated by the idea of learning theory. All of the essential concepts are slowly introduced in a natural way throughout the beginner, intermediate, and advanced sections. Then for students interested in further information, this section includes a more complete and comprehensive review of everything you need to know.

Quality Guitar Lessons From A Highly Qualified Instructor

Nate Savage

Nate Savage was born and raised in Houston, Texas. He started playing the guitar at the age of 13 and was hooked right away. Since then, he has been fortunate enough to make a living doing what he loves - touring the world as a professional guitarist and teaching the guitar to students around the world.

At the age of 34, Nate has become one of the most popular guitar instructors in the world. At last count, 71,274 students from around the world are subscribed to his online lesson updates, and his video have been viewed over 8 million times over the past four years alone. Even still, Nate remains humble and focused on helping his students achieve their unique goals on the guitar.

"There is no better feeling than hearing from a student who was able to achieve something they thought was impossible", says Nate, "it motivates me to find new and more effective ways to help them become great musicians - and it gives me purpose every single day".

The Guitar System represents an evolution in the way online guitar lessons are created, published, and distributed. Unlike DVD training packs, the lessons are instantly available on the computer and Nate can update them with new videos based on student questions and feedback. And unlike video sharing websites like YouTube, the lessons are consistent, qualified, and organized - so students always know exactly what to do next.

The History Behind The Guitar System Video Lessons

Guitar System History

The Guitar System was created by world-renowned guitar instructor Nate Savage. It was published in fall of 2013 by Railroad Media, a company with over ten years of experience producing and distributing premium video lessons for musicians. Nate worked closely with the production team for over three years to organize the content, film the video lessons, produce the jam tracks, and develop the easy-to-use online members area.

Before publishing The Guitar System, Nate developed the Beginner Guitar System and the Blues Guitar Blueprint, both of which were also published through Railroad Media. The experience of developing the video lessons, publishing them online, and getting feedback from students has helped Nate refine his unique approach to teaching. The Guitar System reflects this, as it benefits from his past experiences and makes learning easier than ever before.

The original plan was to launch The Guitar System as a DVD/CD/Workbook set. But the team quickly realized that the comprehensive content would fill over 30 DVDs, which would make it too expensive for many students. With that in mind, they created the powerful online members area to give students immediate access to all of the video lessons in one simple website. This reduced the cost and made it much easier for students to navigate the lessons - as well as it enabled students to be able to submit their questions directly to Nate.

Today, The Guitar System is available for students all around the world. With its complete and comprehensive lesson library, it's providing students with the ability to pick and choose the specific lessons that line up with their goals. Best of all, they can watch the videos anytime, day or night, to get the information they need to make lasting progress on the guitar.
