Fretboard Freedom...

Most intermediate players get stuck in boxes and patterns. In this course, you'll discover a simple method for being able to play across the entire neck.

"Advanced" Techniques. From rakes, to arpeggios, to 2-handed tapping, Mike covers just about every essential guitar technique you'll need to know. Sometimes these are considered 'advanced', but Mike brings everything down to earth and makes it so darn simple.

Scales, Modes, and Music Theory. If you want to know which chord goes with which riff in which key, or what scale gives you the right effect, or how it all fits together, look no further.

Bending & Shredding...

Get exact instructions on where to place each finger on the fretboard. Yep, nice and slow so there's way to go wrong.

Bending and Vibratro. It's all about bending and shaking those notes so they come to life. Ever wonder how a great guitarist can take a couple of notes and make it sound like a million bucks? This is how. Every great guitarist has a mean vibrato and you'll have one too with the techniques you'll discover in Lead Guitar Star.

Become a master of vibrato. If you do nothing else but develop a strong vibrato, you'll be a great player. Mike gives you the no-nonsense formula for developing this critical technique.

Why Is This System So Dang Effective?

This course makes great use of what I call "song based learning", which simply means that you're learning key techniques WHILE you're learning great songs at the same time.

As someone who's been in the guitar teaching profession for a long time, I can tell you that when we've broken down songs, piece by piece, and taught them step-by-step, our students upgraded their skills significantly faster than when we taught them one trick at a time.

You get taught by an incredible teacher that makes playing the guitar fun and simple.

Most teachers overcomplicate things. Mike shows you how to play every song, technique and how to put it all together in a crystal clear way.

Fire Up Your Chops Instantly...

Seize control with 9 quick-fire licks that gets your skills sizzling from day one.

Get it DEEP in your bones. What if your FINGERS could automatically understand the language of lead guitar? They will... and by the end of this video you'll be able to learn any solo you want BY YOURSELF.

Achieve the dream... and develop your own unique "voice" as a musician by utilizing these powerful improvisation concepts. They really get the licks into your playing.

Do the impossible... and memorize all the pentatonic shapes in a few days. (Sadly, most guitarists take years to accomplish this simple feat).

Mike Baelde has been playing guitar since the age of 9.

He has been the lead 1-on-1 instructor for the Vancouver Guitar School, which is now Campfire Guitar Star since 2012. Mike tours extensively in Canada, and has a worldwide following of students.

Here's what Mike's got to say on the subject of teaching and learning guitar: "My philosophy on music and teaching is simple. The better you get, the more rewarding music becomes. A good teacher will simple guide a student to that point where they want to play and practice, by using a process that keeps the student having fun and engaged throughout.

There is no greater joy for me than when I see my students accomplishing their musical goals, so I've made it my main focus to help people succeed on the guitar. There is something here for everyone. No matter what your level, it is my guarantee that you will emerge a better guitarist after completing this series."

Here's 4 Potent Licks That We've Seen In Thousands Of Guitar Solos Over The Years From Legends Like Mark Knopfler, Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Lynyrd Skynyrd (And Many More)

Lick #1: "The Mark"

This lick can be found in the famous "Sultans of Swing" guitar solo by Dire Straits. It's the basis of a fundamental technique that give your fingers some slick chops, and you'll see it all the time in tons of different rock and blues guitar solos.

Lick #3 "The Ripper"

You can find this lick in songs like Voodoo Child and Freebird. It's aweseome. Mike gives you the small nuances that are the difference between sounding like a champ vs. sounding like a chump.

Lick #2: "The Jimmy"

Another monster lick and even easier to play. The trick to this one is to keep the sound crisp and and not let the notes mush together like a chord. Jimmy Page used this in some of his most epic songs.

Lick #4: "The Chuck"

Play wicked "double stops" like you'll see Jimi Hendrix and Lynyrd Skynrd doing in classics like "Sweet Home Alabama" or "Little Wing". Mike's gonna give you the 3 "mini chords" that you'll hear everwhere in classic rock riffs.

In 2011, I was 20 years old and fresh out of music college where I graduated with honours and won an award for music excellence which awarded me performing at MuchMusic HQ in Toronto. I continued my launch into a career in music and got in touch with the “Vancouver Guitar School” (founded by fellow music school grad, Will Ripley). We became fast friends and I became the lead guitar instructor reaching 1,000 students within my first few years of teaching. Making a big move out East to music central, Montreal, I toured heavily throughout Canada reaching thousands of audience members with my original music. I now perform around the Montreal area and am the head 1:1 instructor at Campfire Guitar Star. I also publish popular guitar lessons and have reached hundreds of thousands of guitar students with my video lessons.
