Andy has been a true blessing to work with at ESP Guitars.  Since he became a part of the family, I have wanted to use him for every trade show and clinic that I possibly could because of how impactful his playing is.  Fast, but fluid, stylistic, but consistent…all while making it look so damn easy.  He is very personable and can take the time to explain to anybody what he is doing and how he is doing it and for all the aforementioned reasons, he turns anybody in his path into a fan.

ESP Guitars,

Dear Friend and Fellow Guitarist,

The Andy James Guitar Academy makes guitar playing easy.

In every town, in every city, in every country around the world, there’s a guitar player who dreams of being able to shred, lick, riff, scale and possess all of the technical skills needed to play guitar like a seasoned rock star.

When you want access to the most kick ass guitar lessons ever recorded, which covers; warming up, alternative picking, pentatonic, riffs, gear, scales and modes, string skipping, recording, licks, rhythm, composition, songwriting and much, much more, delivered to you each and every week, teaching you the technical aspects of guitar playing, which many deem impossible, then relax, you’re in the right place and you’ve found the right person.

And, YOU are EXACTLY the guitar player I want to help.

No longer will you feel like you’re stuck in a rut, struggling to grasp the various techniques you desire to take your playing skills to the next level and beyond.

Here’s why . . .

The Story of 2 Guitarists Who Started Playing in
Their High School Band a Few Years Ago . . .

Long time friends, Dave and Alex loved playing guitar in their high school band. From practice, to playing gigs, they always had a lot of fun! That changed when they went away to different colleges. Studies took priority. There never seemed like anytime to just pick up play.

Recently, these 2 friends were home from college and decided to catch up on their lives and have a jam session. They started to play one of the cover songs they use to playmin their high school band. About half way through the song, Alex stopped playing. He was stunned!

He couldn’t believe just how awesome Dave was now playing. He thought to himself, how the heck did he become so darn good, in such a short period of time? After all, they both had the same guitar teacher growing up and their technical skills were always about the same.

There was now a huge difference in their playing skills. Alex was struggling to take his playing to the next level, even though he’d done private lessons while away at college for the last few months. Dave on the other hand, was playing so good, he could soon find himself landing well paid gigs.

What Made Such a Huge Difference To Their Guitar Skills?

The difference in Dave and Alex’s guitar skills had little to do with their ability to play. The difference was in their decision to learn guitar after high school. Alex has chosen to hire a private teacher, which at $40 for each 45 minute, session a week, a total of $160 per month, it seemed the right choice.

Dave however had discovered an alternative way to take his guitar playing to a level, way above his wildest dreams. And he could do so from anywhere in the world, any time of the day or night.

If you haven’t guessed already, Dave had discovered the Andy James Guitar Academy and this was the HUGE difference in his guitar playing skills.

EMG Artist of The Week

“For some time Andy James has been widely regarded as one of the U.K.’s rising stars in the world of Shred & Metal guitar. Now, Andy James has undeniably earned himself a place among the very best in the world.

As a major contributor to “Lick Library” – the benchmark for Web and DVD based guitar instruction – Andy has specialized in teaching lead techniques for Heavy Rock and Metal. Not only can he be found mastering others’ techniques but, influenced by the likes of Andy Timmons, John Petrucci, Paul Gilbert and Adam Dutkiewicz, Andy is incredibly skilled as a songwriter, as heard on solo albums ‘In the Wake of Chaos’ and ‘Machine’ as well as his contribution to his band Sacred Mother Tongue.

It hasn’t taken long for Andy James’ name to become a leading light in the world of Metal guitar; now fully endorsed by Blackstar Amplification and ESP Guitars.

Be it workshops, exhibitions or with Sacred Mother Tongue, seeing this man live is a must. To witness first hand the sound, the dynamic, the dexterity and the speed with which he plays live on stage is a site to behold and is the personification of what has made Andy James world-renowned in his field, and this year the world is his fretboard.”

Here's What Others Are Saying About Being An Academy Member!

The Pick Is Now in Your Hands . . .
It’s Up To YOU How Well You Use It!

I would hope by now you’re getting my drift. The Andy James Guitar Academy is not for everyone.

It’s only for serious guitar players who want to discover for themselves, the correct technical aspects of guitar playing which others deem impossible.

The information you will gain access to as a member of the Andy James Guitar Academy is unlike anything out there.

When you consider the average investment for a just one weekly 45 minute, private lesson with a guitar teacher is between $40-50 ($160-$200 per month) or if you could every twist my arm to teach you privately, one on one, it would be an investment of $75 per session ($300 a month) plus travel and time . . . plus you are protected by my 365 day, this really should be a no brainer.

For less than $1.67 a day you can gain immediate access to the Monthly Platinum membership and for a mere $1.38 per day, you can gain immediate access to the Annual Platinum Membership area.

So, for much less than a cup of Starbucks coffee or a beer a day, I have done everything I can to prove to you just how valuable, priceless and life changing your guitar playing will be, when you become a member of my Andy James Guitar Academy.

The pick is in your hands, if you want to continue to struggle and feel like you’re stuck in a guitar playing rut . . . and you don’t want to substantially improve your guitar playing skills . . . then do not become a member.

When you want to pick up your guitar, grab a pick and shred, lick, riff, scale and possess all of the technical skills needed to play guitar well beyond your wildest dreams . . . then become a monthly or annual member by clicking on the link/s below.
