Than Making Progress Will Likely Be Faster Than You Ever Thought It Could Be
My number one goal is to help guitarists play way better than they believed was possible and offer them the best guitar lessons in Franklin.
It doesn’t feel like that long ago(though it was a LONG time ago) that my own guitar playing felt stuck in a rut. When I first started learning guitar, I got the basics down (open chords, barre chords, cool riffs, poorly executed solos, etc.), I just didn’t know what to do with any of it.
I would bang around on guitar for years and made slow to zero progress. It wasn’t until I got guidance and training from someone who really knew how to get results that things changed.
Then things took off!
If this is what you want then hit us up for guitar lessons in Franklin, TN at Supertonic Guitar. It will not disappoint!
A plateau that lasted for 10+ years. I was just spinning my wheels for a decade.
I couldn’t figure out how to build up speed in my fingers. And I wondered why I just couldn’t do it when I would practice over and over and still not get any faster. My playing was sloppy and inconsistent. I was the best player of all my friends I knew at the time and they all told me I was great.
But deep down, I knew that it just wasn’t true, that I hadn’t achieved a level where I could play how I really wanted to and deliver the best guitar lessons in Franklin, TN.
One time I was recording in the studio. And while in the midst of recording (something that should have been exciting and fun) I had a painful realization, I wasn’t even good enough to record my own parts.
What I mean is my technique was so sloppy and inconsistent that I’d play something right maybe one time but then it totally fell apart the next time I played it. Honestly, I couldn’t even hear how bad I actually was. I just didn’t know what I didn’t realize.
But let’s just say that it was so bad that the other guitar player in the band ended up re-recording all of my parts! Ouch…
The icing on the cake is that I developed carpal tunnel. To be fair, a lot of of the blame goes to a job I had at the time. I quit it, but the damage was done. My bad habits just made it worse. Either way, my hands hurt so much that I could not play guitar for more than 10-15 minutes at a time before having to stop due to how much pain I was in.
Because of that, I only picked up my guitar when it was absolutely necessary such as, to write songs or perform for the band, and I would only play the easy stuff. But I didn’t actually really practice guitar for over a decade! I’ll admit it. I started to settle for less. I didn’t believe it was even possible for me to get better or have the best guitar lessons in Franklin,TN.
So I tried to shut off my desire to play guitar and made excuses (“I don’t have time”, “I’ll get to it ‘someday’”, “life just got in the way”, and all that).
I had lost hope that things would get better or I would ever offer guitar lessons in Franklin. I didn’t know how to fix it or if fixing it was even possible. Becoming the best for guitar lessons in Franklin, TN seemed like a distant dream. I still didn’t know what to practice in order to make actual progress. And I had no structure and no plan to follow.
Finally, I got fed up. Something had to change. So I sought out the coaching I so badly needed.
Yes, I learned new things, but I learned how to diagnose the problems in my guitar playing and pinpoint the exact challenges that were holding me back from playing how I really wanted and becoming the best for offering guitar lessons in Franklin, TN.
I got real help. Someone to hold my hand through the entire process to make it as easy as possible for me.
I had been skeptical that things could really change, but I was willing to give it a shot. I discovered something that made a huge difference not only in my playing but, in the playing of my (future) guitar students and guitar lessons in Franklin, TN. Today we provide the best guitar lessons in Franklin, Tn
The problem is that when we first start playing guitar, there are some skills we naturally pick up faster than others (And some skills we don’t learn at all but we should).
For example: You may be able to learn technique really quickly, but never spend time training your ear. Or maybe you jumped right into learning songs but have no technique or proper fundamentals whatsoever. Either way, this kind of dysfunctional learning that most beginners go through is something that most guitarists never recover from.
It happened to me and kept me far from offering the best guitar lessons in Franklin. But, as I kept going down my own “self-taught” path, my skills kept improving, and I kept getting closer to becoming the best for guitar lessons in Franklin.
But there were other skills I…
These skills (or I should say, the lack thereof) are what made my playing off balance because I never knew I needed to practice them. I didn’t know what I was missing. This is why I knew bits and pieces of guitar playing but couldn’t put it all together no matter how much I tried.
It’s also why my playing was sloppy and no matter how much I practiced, I never sounded as good as my favorite players. And I’m willing to bet the principle of…
Here are other mistakes that keep you perpetually stuck:
Sadly the vast majority of guitar teachers are simply not qualified to teach guitar, they are merely good players (hopefully). They don’t have any training or certifications for teaching guitar lessons in Franklin (But they’ll make sure you know they have a Bachelor’s degree in music, this is all good for them but their music degree has nothing to do with teaching you).
Sadly, students who come to me from other teachers still have tremendous holes in their technique and in their musical knowledge.
It is likely content made by the same unqualified guitar teachers (or worse, not a teacher at all). Even if you are able get something out of these things, all you’re doing at this point is piling more stuff onto your already shaky foundation.
Most guitar lessons in Franklin TN, no matter what format, aren’t enough to fix the problems in your playing. The reason being that…
It’s still up to you to practice correctly and consistently by yourself. It’s still up to you to undo your bad habits. And it’s up to you to think through your guitar playing challenges and try to figure out what to do when you are clueless on what the problem actually is or how to fix it.
For most people (and many of my students – before they come to me), it does not end well. And it almost ended in disaster for me too. Until guitar training experts did an in-depth analysis of my playing.
I’m going to be brutally honest, the longer you’ve played guitar, the more bad habits you are likely to have. The good news is that you can fix any guitar playing problem when you know what to do and how to do it.
I felt like I finally had a blueprint for playing guitar the way I always wanted it to be. Also, I had more breakthroughs in my playing in a few months than I had in the previous 10 years. Now I could play all day long, day after day! No more pain.
It transformed my playing and guitar lessons in Franklin. It works for almost everyone who I use it on.

It really depends on the individual, their interest, goals and how quickly they want to make progress. You can progress in as little as 5-10 minutes of practice per day if you have the proper training from an experienced guitar teacher on a consistent basis. There is not a clear, direct answer for this.
No, definitely not! I get asked this question a lot from beginners who think they need to know how to play something before coming to see me. First of all, everyone is nervous at first, but this goes away quickly as it really is such a positive and encouraging environment. If you don’t know how to play anything yet, this is great news! Because you haven’t developed any bad habits, learned things out of order, gotten overwhelmed by different info telling you to do different things. We will help you build the musical foundation you need so that you can feel comfortable playing real music and you’ll be excited to see yourself progress.
We work with adults of ALL ages. You’re never too old to learn something new 🙂 Our kids guitar lessons programs start at age 10.
We focus solely on guitar (and bass). Many music schools offer multiple different instruments however, ALL of our attention, time and energy goes into constantly improving our guitar training programs.
We have several different programs for you to choose from depending on what you’d like to do. No two students are the same so it helps to know more about you, your musical goals and interests, etc. Much like a doctor needs to assess their patients before providing a diagnosis in order to best treat them, a great guitar teacher should meet you first to asses your guitar playing so that he knows how to guide you in a clear musical direction.
We teach all skill levels. From beginners who have never even touched a guitar before to advanced players who have 50+ years of experience.
We teach rock, metal, blues, pop, reggae, country, folk, and related styles. We don’t teach classical, but will help you with it if it’s a secondary interest.
