What Real Students are Saying...

" is where I come daily to study and brush up on my own guitar playing. From beginner to shredding like Eddie Van Halen, Steve Vai, or SRV this site contains everything you need to know to be a great guitarist."

—David Dimuzio,
Platinum Selling Singer/Song-Writer

“I've been learning guitar for roughly 4 years now, the first 2 years I made very little progress. I could play my open chords and barre chords, I tried using other online teaching sites but I couldn't get the motivation to properly learn from them. I found GL365 thanks to a lesson on a certain Jimmy Hendrix song on youtube, and I explored his site/channel from that. Carl's approach to teaching is brilliant, he teaches in such a way that is still fun but even the difficult stuff he keeps you motivated to keep at it. Truthfully if it wasn't for his lessons and style of teaching I'd have given up long ago. Keep up the great work Carl.”

— Thomas M.

“Nice guy, great musician, fantastic classes! This is what I say about your site when I recommend it to my friends! Keep doing your great job and never give up Carl!”

Michal O.

"Love Carl, his lessons are second to none. He doesn't leave you wondering 'wait, what do I do there again?' He goes through everything in detail. His whole set up is super professional from the manner in which he explains things, the recording equipment setup."


"...Song lessons that are second to none. Carl Brown changed my life."
