Gain major breakthroughs in your guitar playing with personalized coaching, fresh monthly masterclasses, and an encouraging community of like minded guitar players
Get instant access to live coaching calls with me, fresh monthly content, and an exclusive community to help you supercharge your guitar playing skills
To really improve and grow as a guitarist, you need a few things
Content to learn from and build your guitar playing "vocabulary"
Awareness of your ability and skill level so you'll know what to practice to get to the next level in your playing
A practice routine that you consistently stick to to "oil the machinery" of your guitar playing skills
Personalized feedback from a teacher or mentor who can see the blind spots that you can't
Other musicians to interact with, learn from and grow with
The great news is, it's absolutely possible have access to and develop all of these skills in today's environment, given the amount of technology and information out there available to everyone and anyone!
In fact, this is exactly what I try to help you with in my YouTube and social media content every single week: giving you exactly what you need to get one step closer to developing the guitar skills you've always dreamed of.
Heck, if you've already picked up one of my courses, you definitely understand the importance of having a structured approach to take you from A-Z, leaving no stone unturned.
But here's what I've found
Most people go through some free content or an online course, and try to figure out the rest on their own
When they start asking (really good) questions including:
- What are my strengths/ weaknesses?
- What should I be working on to get to the next level in my playing?
- How is my timing?
- How do I build speed/ technique?
- I've been practicing consistently for a while now but my progress is SO slow. Am I doing something wrong?
- I'm losing motivation. What should I do?
They don't know who to turn to!
Sure, there are countless forums and groups online dedicated to guitar playing, but the amount of conflicting information, inflated egos, and overall toxicity in many of them render them practically useless, and may leave you feeling even more overwhelmed than you already were.
It's incredibly difficult to improve when you're all by yourself.
I say all this because I've seen it with my own eyes. I've seen aspiring guitar pickers with a burning passion and a desire to create great music, but as they work and work on their own, not knowing who to turn to, who they can trust, ask for feedback, and collaborate with, they become resentful, and eventually lose the love for the guitar and music altogether.
It's so hard to improve as a guitarist and truly know you're on the right track when you're working by yourself all the time.
And even if you have people you can connect with, how many of them play the styles that you love? How many of these people actually understand what you're going through and can offer advice that you can trust?
With an ever growing list of questions from my students, requests for feedback & coaching, and aspiring guitar pickers entering the scene on a daily basis, I knew something had to be done.
In addition to personalized coaching and feedback, my students needed their own space; a community of warm, encouraging, like-minded guitarists who they could turn to whenever they needed help, encouragement and accountability.
A place where they could receive trusted feedback on their playing, personalized coaching from myself, and fresh consistent content to help them with their guitar playing journey, every single month.
Over this past year, I set out to create the perfect solution that solves this exact problem, and this solution is exactly what I'm about to share with you.
If you're ready to take command of your guitar playing for good , I'd like to welcome you to the Picker's Insider Circle.
So what's included?
This community is comprised of 3 core pillars: a private online community of like-minded guitar pickers, live Q&A coaching calls with me, and fresh monthly masterclasses on topics ranging from technique, to building speed, repertoire, improvisation, timing, and more.

This is my first time launching a community like this and I'm so excited to invite you to be a part of it
That being said, I've been teaching full time since 2006 and my ability to make a living has been dependent on getting my students results.
Listen to what a few of my current and former students had to say about working with me
Billy Rosewarne-Seattle WA
Samuel Anderson-Knoxville TN
"In the past 6 months of working with Aaron, I can honestly say I've learned more about playing guitar that the previous 15 years combined. My knowledge on the guitar continues to expand so I’m able to pickup songs quicker and more consistently. Aaron’s patience and attention to detail are two things that stand out the most about his teaching style. Not to mention it feels like he knows every song you could ever want to learn! I look forward to lessons every week and seeing where my guitar playing will go in the future working with him.”
Sarah Beth Lovell-Kingsport TN
"I've taken music lessons my whole life and Aaron is one of the finest teachers I’ve ever had. He really knows how to teach transferable skills and that is rare. I recommend him to everyone I can."
Mark O'Dell-Bristol TN
"Aaron is an exceptionally gifted guitar player who also happens to be an incredible teacher. He is a patient and conscientious instructor who incorporates kindness and enthusiasm into his lessons. Aaron makes difficult concepts and techniques easily understandable. My guitar playing improves weekly thanks to Aaron."

These coaching calls give you personalized access to me, so you can take what you learn and apply it instantly to your journey.

I've had hundreds of students pick up my online bluegrass and country guitar courses this past year
This community is a great companion to my online courses as you get feedback, encouragement and accountability as you work through the course content.
Listen to what some of my online course students are saying:
Dan Hall- Flatpicking Mastery Student
“If your a guitarist who is looking for a bluegrass flatpicking guitar course that gets right down to the "meat and potatoes" then this course is for you. It's all hands on training with great videos, tablature, and words of encouragement from Aaron every step of the way. If you apply yourself you'll see definate improvement in your guitar playing skills that you'll be very pleased with and will serve you well for many years to come”
Tim Gregory-Flatpicking Mastery Student
"I've been looking for a bluegrass course like this for a long time. It really has a huge amount of information that will give me some new chops immediately but also leave many goodies to unpack for months to come. It really is a game changer for me and you can't go wrong with it if you want to improve your bluegrass guitar playing."
Francois Besseyrias- Flatpicking Mastery Student
“I came across Aaron on TikTok while checking out this app my 14 yr old was spending so much time on. And man, was it good. He had the chops and musical open mindedness I was looking for. So I decided to sign up for his course. I've only gone through maybe a handful of topics and videos, but I already feel I got my money’s worth. You get everything you need to build a solid bluegrass flatpicking guitar culture from the basics and up. Really great stuff!”
Get your solos and leads reviewed by myself and the other members!
Working on a tune, solo, lead or idea and need some help along the way? Working hard but want some general feedback? With the "Picker's Feedback Corner", you can submit your solos/leads anytime, and I will give you personalized feedback, customized to your needs.
Ultimately, what we want is simple...
At the end of the day, we play the guitar to express ourselves, deepen our love of real roots music, and experience the "flow state" of being completely absorbed in the moment when playing guitar
Because practicing is such an intimate process, it's no surprise that many guitar players prefer working on their own, huddled up in their bedrooms and never sharing their playing with other people.
However, that ends up stunting our musical and personal growth, because we lack the connection and community of other like-minded musicians doing exactly what we're doing, and striving for the same thing.
We also end up losing objectivity over our playing, and without a support system or a mentor to guide you along the way, it's so easy to feel overwhelmed and lost in the process!
But it certainly doesn't have to be this way, and I've created this community to be THE place you turn to whenever you have a question, want some feedback on your music, or personal access to me.
Along with these core components of the monthly content, live coaching calls, and exclusive community, I've also set up the 3 Stages Of Guitar Playing Growth to help you identify where you are on your guitar picking journey:
Aaron's Picker's Insider Circle Community is rooted in the 3 Guitar Playing Stages:
Each stage outlines certain key landmarks so you can identify exactly where you are in your guitar picking journey. By taking advantage of everything this community has to offer, you can easily make your way to The Advanced Stage!
The Picker's Insider Circle Community is for you if:
- You're a hobbyist guitar player looking to seriously improve your playing, and even perhaps take your skills to a professional level!
- You're motivated and willing to put in the work to make your vision a reality
- You want access to a community of like-minded musicians who will encourage, support, and cheer you on every step of the way
- You're ready to step up your guitar playing game once and for all and master the necessary skills for guitar domination!
This is NOT for you if:
- You expect results without putting in the effort and the time. I can't promise you anything if you don't put your best foot forward.
- You don't apply yourself to helping others along their journey. The best way to improve is not only to ask questions and receive help, but also to share your expertise and knowledge with others along the way. Because this is a community, we should all be contributing to one another's success.
