Guitar Lessons: Play It Like Mike

Play It Like Mike

Mike gives bi-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 require 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).

You can purchase all of the past and future lessons for a one-time payment of $200. You will receive a Dropbox folder link to all of the existing lessons. Mike will also add all future lessons to that same folder. No Dropbox acccount required.
