Why Guitopia?

“Experience… that’s what really matters.”

 

The internet is an amazing and abundant learning resource.  Unfortunately, there are too many inexperienced, unqualified “teachers” who are posting information that is misleading and even down-right wrong; leaving eager students confused and frustrated.

Rest assured, professional, real-world, experience-driven information is what is served here.  Dave Weiner, founder and host of Guitopia, has experience in abundance.  Here are some quick stats on who you’re learning from:

  • 28-years playing experience
  • 22 years teaching experience
  • 16 years, world touring experience as both solo artist and as Steve Vai’s guitarist of choice, sharing the stage with other guitar legends such as Eric Johnson, Steve Lukather, John Petrucci, Joe Satriani, Paul Gilbert, Al DiMeola, Yngwie Malmsteen, and more!
  • Graduated from Musician’s Institute:  Guitar Institute of Technology, later returned as an instructor for many years
  • 4-time Grammy nominee for both guitar playing and audio engineering
  • 3 records released
  • Creator/host of the internet’s longest running guitar education video series
  • Countless clinics and master classes around the world
  • Pioneered online guitar lessons via Skype and iChat in the early 00’s

Cost-to-Content Ratio

We want to make learning guitar accessible to everyone.  That’s why our Membership starts at just $0.99/week!  Yes, that is not a typo!  Less than a dollar a week for a professionally produced guitar lesson, jamtrack, and more!

Even the top-tier “Pro” level is less than $20/month, and if you purchase yearly, it’s barely over $18/mo…. for everything on the site!

Learn in Comfort!

A Membership to Guitopia means you’re going to be learning guitar, jamming, having fun.. all from the comfort of your own home!  And comfort is key to being a productive guitar player.  Grab a fresh cup of coffee, fire up the lava lamps, light a few candles, turn up your favorite amp and enjoy!

Massive Resources

With an ever-growing, updated-weekly set of assets, Guitopia is and will continue to become THE all-in-one resource for guitar education.  We currently have over 400 weekly lessons in the Archive, 129 Jamtracks, 175 Resource Center charts and 135 Bootcamp episodes!
