Traditional, In-Person, Or YouTube Guitar Lessons Don't Always Work For The Majority Of New Guitar Players
Are you afraid learning to play guitar will lead to hours of frustration trying to read standard guitar notation or spending hours, days, weeks or even months to develop just enough skill just to play a single song to a friend?

Are you looking for a solution that could allow you to pick up a guitar right now and know exactly how to play 100's of your favorite songs?

Have you been endlessly searching Youtube for that magic video to quickly teach you to play a song and hours later found the instruction to confusing, incomplete or just to difficult.
There has to be a better way...

Worst of all, it can leave you with bad playing habits that take a long time to get rid of. The majority of guitar teachers never get trained to become great teachers and simply teach through trial-and-error. 


A guitar neck has 22 to 24 spaces (or frets) with 6 strings. That's 144 different possible notes to accurately hit. And when you're first starting out, it feels like they're in completely random order with no rhyme or reason.


I picked up the guitar with the dream of playing the music I loved for people all over the world only to have it immediately shattered with my teachers demanding I learn to read music I hated and to study hours of music theory that didn't seem to apply to playing any of my favorite songs. I actually transferred out of my Junior High School guitar class due to my frustration having to play "On Top of Old Smoky" and my teacher actually said to me "You are never going to be a good guitarist if you leave this class!!"; as he knew it was my goal to graduate and play as a professional musician.
Then, as if by chance, something amazing happened....
While I was still in high school and now desperately struggling to learn guitar on my own I ran into a friend who introduced me to a Guitar Instructor named Colin Jarman who taught me a few secrets to playing guitar that changed everything!

Colin was the solution, and now after my past 35 years recording, performing, touring and private coaching as a professional guitarist for hire, it's time to pay it forward and help others just like you!
A little bit about myself...
I was a very, very shy 9 year old kid with a crazy burning desire to be on a stage playing for millions of people as a guitar player...
How do you play for millions when you are so nervous to play for anyone? Not only that; learning to play guitar was really hard! All I knew was to grind through a beginner's guitar book and my teachers were uninspiring. I spent months trying to use my ear to work out a few of my favorite song intros from an old record player!

Eventually I worked out enough to put a rock band together in High School to play a talent competition. I remember we had to create a 3-song medley as I didn't know how to play any of the songs from start to finish. It was fun but I was really beating myself up inside listening to all my guitar heroes and not knowing what to do to be just like them.

Soon after my talent show performance I met Colin and my whole world opened up! Colin had an amazing system that brought me the result and solution I was looking for.
Imagine what it would be like to pick up a guitar and instantly play hundreds of you favorite songs?
Guitar playing is so much more than a hobby for those with the passion to learn and better themselves. It becomes a part of who you are and a vital link in some of the best relationships you will have.

Playing guitar brings people together as a group and connects them through music.

Picking up a guitar and playing your favorite songs is a great feeling and a big accomplishment. Sadly, most people believe they could never learn how to play. - This is not a true statement - You Can Do This at Any Age!
From the liner note of my first instrumental guitar Album "FREEDOM"...
"I play guitar and lose myself in its sound, it's my passion. As I begin to play all mindful cluttered thoughts, worries and fears are replaced with feelings of excitement. This is FREEDOM! The music and rhythms I create come from deep within me. I offer this to you with the hope that you will feel as I do."
Here's What Students Are Saying About John Gilliat...

"This may seem a little awkward, but I will try my best, I am now 58 years old and have had a guitar since I was twenty years old. The most that I can say is, I can read and play music in the first position, that's it. I have had some guitar instructors (classical guitar) and they all have hit me with a lot of sheet work to practice for the next session, but I never developed, never understood why you do what you do, only get the usual, "As you play more music, you will understand music. Well I didn't. Yet when I would hear guitar music, I would be drawn back to the guitar. That has been what my guitar life has been like.

Now to get to the point. In your teaching, you showed scales and chords and how a run is actually derived from the root chord. Also, how to achieve scale and chord accomplishment up and down the fretboard. Even the composition of songs. It is as if a light bulb went off. I always asked the questions, but you have finally given me the answer. Speaking for me and anyone else that has been where I have been, thank you so much. You are way up there in Canada but you just can't imagine the frustration and stress that is now gone. You show in detail how to play songs in a simple way that a beginner or novice can feel a sort of accomplishment. That is good for us working older folk. We want to learn how to play songs that we like to hear, not what someone thinks we should hear.

You have recently given renewed inspiration to learning guitar music. For that I want to thank you. For me to write you and tell you this is not like me, but you are making a difference."

“I remember being seven years old, influenced by the likes of Eddie Van Halen and Ritchie Blackmore, all I wanted was to play guitar like they did! I asked my parents if I could start learning guitar, they let me play around with my dads big old acoustic guitar (I could hardly get my arms around the thing). My dad showed me a G chord, and said well you gotta start with some chords, I asked for another chord and he wasn’t sure what else he remembered. I nearly put the instrument down right then and there. I thought to myself, I need a teacher, someone who truly knows the instrument. That’s when we found John Gilliat, we booked lessons right away. John was always in a good mood, understanding and patient with me. He gave me the tools to explore music the way I wanted, he showed me the freedom of what a guitar can do, he even showed me my first steps into writing my own songs. John not only taught me the instrument, he allowed me to learn my own way, and he kept me inspired along the way.

Now I have released four full length albums, toured North America, South America and Europe, and I don’t see an end anytime soon. Music for me is more than a hobby, it’s a way of life.”

 "My 5-year-old son has now taken 3 on-line lessons with John Gilliat's program and is really enjoying learning the guitar. At first, we were concerned our son would have a difficult time focusing, but we were wrong. John's ability to break down the material into fun segments that our son can relate to has really peaked his interest. Best of all the online program offers interactive drumbeats that you can play along to depending on your skill level. We have found this program very fun and interactive, and as a result my son and I are spending more time together jamming in the evenings. As of the 3rd lesson my son is now able to play two child songs and is having fun which is the most important thing! 

I would highly recommend this program for children looking to play guitar and build a life of music."
