Mike gives weekly guitar lessons, walking you through how he plays many of his own arrangements, including songs like “Africa” by Toto. Each lesson is usually about 45 minutes long.
NOTE: Some songs requires a capo, so have one handy.
Lessons in this series first air as free public live streams on Mike’s YouTube channel (usually on Thursday mornings Mike’s time), and then are available for purchase as a downloadable file directly from Mike with a $20 USD PayPal, Venmo or Cash app donation (per lesson).

* To receive access to the lesson file and song chart (chords/lyrics), please send a $20 USD payment via one of the above-listed methods with the name of the song lesson you are purchasing. Please also include the email address where you would like the link sent.
