ABOUT ME

Hello, I'm Jamie Harrison

I guess I should have gotten someone else to write my About section. They would have been able to say all sorts of great ‘market-y’ things about me. They would have told you that you HAVE to spend money with me or miss out on the best investment in your guitar playing life and in your life in general. That I will go down in history as the greatest guitar instructor of all time and YOU’LL miss out. That if you don’t buy NOW, the price will go up by thousands… So GIVE.ME.YOUR.MONEY.NOW!

But… I’m a straight shooter.

If I say something about myself, whether it’s good or bad, I say it it’s because it’s true. I’m not an ‘influencer’ or a ‘marketer’ so won’t give the same BS that you get from them all the time to try and convince you to part with your hard-earned money. Us Irish folk are known to have a certain humility that makes us pretty bad at self-promotion and marketing, but also has given us a reputation as being pretty authentic people. It’s a character trait that’s bred into us from when we were kids, for better or for worse.

So, yeah… I’m just a dude. From Ireland. Loves music. Loves film. Loves tech.

For years I busked (street-performed) around the world with my guitar. I would turn up in a new city and play every day I could. It wasn’t always glamorous, but it taught me my craft and helped me put food on the table at the same time. By doing this, I realized that I could make money doing something I actually enjoyed (my previous job had been as a dishwasher). So I worked at it. Oh boy, did I work at it. In each city, there are typically ‘spots’ that are far enough away from each other so that you don’t compete with the music of the next busker. More often than not, you’d wait for a couple of hours to get one of these spots and would play for 40mins – 2 hours, depending on the regulations of the city. Most other buskers would generally come out for a couple of hours each day, whereas I would often do 18-hour days to try and make use of every possible busking spot I could work.

I used the money I made to pay for my food and rent, buy some nice guitars, camera equipment and lights, and then put whatever was left into helping others. I met some wonderful homeless people on the streets who I would try to help by buying food and clothes and I donated the earnings of my busiest week of the year to a 3-year-old girl with Neuroblastoma, a rare form of children’s cancer. This story later went viral and snowballed into a huge national campaign to raise money for the disease. I say this not for a pat on the back for my charitable efforts, but to point out that this all came from a couple of wires on a piece of wood, and a determination to make a difference. In my mind, others needed the money more than me, and if I could do something to help, then I would. And as such, It went far beyond just ‘I’ll play you some nice songs and you enjoy them’ and actually was making a genuine difference in the world. 

Following this, I put a few guitar covers of songs I like to play on Youtube. I always knew I could play half-decently from the response I would get from people, but never thought I was particularly amazing or anything. I had known how much I had struggled to get to the point of being able to play these songs. How many bum notes had been hit over the years, how many wrong strings had been strummed, and how many questions I had asked of myself (Am I good enough? Maybe I don’t have what it takes. Should I do something else etc.). However, all the videos I uploaded were quickly becoming the highest-viewed versions of all of these songs online, and the comments I was getting were suggesting otherwise.

People started asking me to show them how to play like that, and to demonstrate how I sound the way I do. I had been teaching guitar privately for many years at this point and had a pretty flawless track record for getting students results. So I did.

I created and sold my first course for $5 and sold an average of about one every other month. Not exactly a get-rich-quick scheme, but I continued teaching and busking to make ends meet. After about two years, I thought it might be nice to get €10 every other month instead of €5. So I made another. And another.

Over time, the courses grew, and the response also grew to the point where it became almost unbelievable. The feedback from people who had taken the courses was beyond incredible. People were genuinely emailing me to tell me how their lives had been changed by the courses. That I had ignited a motivation and inspiration in them that they hadn’t had for years. That I had helped them get the girl they wanted (or many of the girls they wanted) through the irresistible pull that musicians who can actually play seem to have over the opposite sex. That I had helped them get through their cancer treatment, or get over the loss of a loved one by finally learning ‘their’ song. That I had helped them set up a new band, which is now touring all over the world, get over their guitar-playing plateau, love music again, and finally understand the mechanics of the fretboard… The list goes on…

I would message other people completely unrelated to the guitar about something also completely unrelated and they would say ‘OMG you’re Jamie Harrison, I love your stuff dude’, or I would get recognized in a local park or in the music shops thousands of miles from my hometown. People were truly loving these courses, and clearly, I was doing something that was genuinely making a difference to people’s lives.

I do have a more backstory which you can read about here if you so wish, but for those of you who don’t care about my time living in a van, performing on streets all over the world, or producing songs with Coldplay’s producer, I’ll spare you the details here. 

For now, you can rest assured that I’m now here to serve you. I have made a platform that I guarantee you will love. I have built technology that I guarantee you will love. I have built a community that I guarantee you will love. I have customer support that I guarantee you will love. And if you don’t, I’ll give you your money back.

“Invest in yourself, invest in the process, and you will be rewarded many times over” 

GOT A QUESTION?

FAQ. Section

I have created a framework for how you should take the courses depending on your level called ‘The JHG Roadmap”. This shows you the difficulty level of each course and song in your guitar-playing journey.

These courses are digital, so can be delivered anywhere in the world. Once you complete your purchase, you will be sent an email with your username and password, which will give you access immediately to your account on jamieharrisonguitar.com where you will be able to view all the courses you have bought. No shipping fees, no need for DVD drives, and no waiting around for products to arrive. Get started immediately!

Of course! Because I am located in Europe, pounds are an efficient currency to use, especially for all of the boring accounting and taxes stuff. Just make your purchase using Paypal or a credit/debit card and they will handle converting your currency into pounds. If international transactions aren’t something you often do and the transaction won’t process, you might need to contact Paypal support or your credit card company to authorize the transaction. Sadly, I don’t control the conversion rates or whether your financial institution charges fees or whether VAT is imposed. I receive ONLY the amount listed for the course (less what I’m charged by Paypal and my credit card processing company).

Yes, these courses will work on all devices. The videos can be streamed on my website, but you can also stream/download the courses with the JHG App which is free on the App Store and Play Store. The course material is primarily made up of pdf files which are standard files and can be read on most devices. If you want to download some of the content to view offline, you will have to ensure that you have enough free space on your device.

Yes, you can use these courses offline on your device by downloading them via the free JHG App. Please note that if you download any files directly to your device, it will affect your refund policy. See the ‘Refund Policy’ section below for more details.
All courses are digital, so will be delivered immediately upon purchase. The pictures shown for each course are just the images for ‘e-products’ ie. electronic products. It is standard nowadays with online and digital products to have such images representing them. They are for demonstration purposes only and you will not receive any physical items when you purchase a course. You will receive all material by video, pdf and guitar pro (tab) format, so you can print out the material yourself as you follow along with the videos.

Sometimes your payment will fail and you won’t receive your courses. This is most often due to a block that your credit card company has on your card for international payments as my company is based in Ireland. Even if you buy online regularly, this can still occur as the credit card company might have a list of ‘approved’ retailers (amazon etc) for which it might work fine, but it’s unlikely that little old jamieharrisonguitar.com made that list! 😀 All you usually have to do is contact your credit card provider and tell them to allow the payment, or else just pay with Paypal (you don’t need a Paypal account to do this and it’s very straightforward).
 
 
 

Most of the songs I teach are certainly not for beginners, no, but I have provided a course for people starting out, called the ‘Ultimate Beginners Guide (to Strat Style Guitar)”. This is your starting point if you’re picking up a guitar for the first time, or if you only have a very basic knowledge of guitar. This will give you a good Primer to get to the point of being able to learn these songs, but I would suggest that you also supplement this course by learning other songs outside of this course. Your muscles simply need time to get to the point of being able to play proficiently, and while you might understand everything in the Beginners Course, you’ll still need to put the time in yourself before you go into the songs, all guns blazing. Unfortunately, this can’t be rushed, and although this is the most direct route to getting where you want to go, be optimistic but not unrealistic. This will take patience and plenty of work no matter what way you approach it.
As far as the songs go, if I was one of these online marketing gurus, I would say that this is ‘for people of all levels’ so that I could sell more, but honestly, if you’re a complete beginner, I would say that the songs will probably be quite difficult for you without having completed the beginners courses. I do assume a basic knowledge of the guitar and certain terms and move through the course relatively fast. It still can be done, with enough practice, I just wouldn’t call them ‘beginners courses’.

It’s also a very difficult thing for me to say, as I haven’t seen you play, and I also don’t know how dedicated and willing you are to put a real effort into mastering this style. It does take time and effort, so don’t expect the skills it requires to just fall into your lap once you buy the course. I do believe that pretty much anyone can learn this style, but for instance, it may take a month for a more advanced player to truly master, whereas it might take a year for a beginner, or something along those lines. So it’s really impossible for me to say for sure. However, you do get lifetime access to the course obviously, so you can always come back to it as you please.

One thing I can guarantee is that you will learn A LOT from it, and if you are just getting started in this style, then it might be actually good to have all of this knowledge and understanding from the start.

I know it’s probably not the simple answer that you’re looking for, but it’s the best one I can give at the moment without knowing you.

As English is my main language, the videos found in these courses are spoken in English. However, there are subtitles available in the following languages:
Spanish
French
Portuguese
German
The subtitles are provided through Google Translate so will be far from perfect, but they are included to make life a little easier for those not fluent in English.

Buying one of our pre-built bundles gives you the biggest discount on the courses. You can view and compare what is included in these bundles here. Unfortunately, as of now, there is no way to mix and match which courses and songs are included in these bundles.
 

I think this is a very valid question, and honestly, for some people, I think learning on YouTube is a very good option. But let’s just put this in perspective. A quick search on google for online guitar lesson shows an average of about £40 an hour. This doesn’t include high quality tabs, videos you can search back on over and over and most importantly, it’s not coming from someone whose playing you actually want to learn (I’m assuming since you’re on this page, my covers of these songs are something you want to learn). If you learn on YouTube, you are learning in a very scattered way, and you will have to find some information from one person, some information from another and then get mismatching tabs or chords somewhere else. You also won’t get the insights into my gear, setup and thought processes that I provide in my lesson. You likely will have to spend a lot of valuable time looking through the countless videos trying to find the best ones, the ones that best match each other, the ones with the best guitar tones etc etc when everything you need is already organised and provided conveniently for you in my lesson.
Here’s the most important thing though – To tell you the truth, I used to learn everything free from YouTube, but I realized a few years ago that if you pay for something, your brain assigns it more value and so you automatically push yourself more in order to make the most of your investment. Because of this trick in the brain, I now pay for most things online that I want to learn because it gives me an extra layer of motivation which is EXTREMELY valuable and important in my view. And that’s not just me trying to take your money – it’s a genuine psychological trick that you can play on your brain (do your own research on this – there’s tonnes on Google about this – even a TED talk on it). If you pay money, you will get a better result, and you will become a better guitar player. Period. Invest in yourself.
Aside from all this, just go and have a look anywhere on the countless reviews of people who’ve spent money on this course and been so over the moon with it that they felt compelled to go and leave reviews and express how valuable these courses were to them. Every one of these have said ‘worth so much more than what I paid’ or ‘you get so much for the price’ or even ‘get these now before they go up to what they’re really worth’. These aren’t my words – go look at the YouTube and Facebook reviews for yourself. You can contact the users yourself if you have any doubts.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t possibly allow anyone who buys the everything bundle now to continue getting all my future courses. For this to be even sustainable, I would have to charge a monthly fee, and I don’t personally like to be charged that way as a customer (yes, I’m one of those people who always forgets what I’ve signed up for and years pass before I realize that I’ve been paying monthly to something I never even use). This is also how people get the most money from you – because they know that most people do in fact forget. It’s a pretty established principal in business 😉 So to keep it clean for you, I only charge you once, and you get the course for life, but it’s a separate purchase to get future course. Remember, the extra that you might pay to add on a new course might be only 5 or 10 bucks for you, but for me, when everyone doesn’t pay that extra 5 or 10 bucks, I potentially lose a heck of a lot more, and considering the amount of time that I put into each and every one of my videos/courses, this is something I simply cannot afford to do. I hope you can understand and you find this fair 🙂

WARNING: Please do not use any links or discount codes from any sort of external ‘coupon’ sites. These sites are not affiliated in any way with jamieharrisonguitar.com and provide fake offers and links claiming you will receive products and offers that you will not receive. Their goal is to try and get you to buy through their links by lying to you about special offers or deals, and then try and claim money from me from an affiliate program. They are doing this with many sites, scamming legitimate businesses and lying to people and you should never use or support them.

The discount code field is mainly reserved for previous customers who have very specific requirements and need to upgrade their course(s) but have already paid something towards that course. for example. I also have provided discount codes in the past for some rare sales during the year, such as Black Weekend, or when someone wants to buy a course as a gift for someone else, discount codes can be one way to get this done. Unfortunately, these are not codes you will find scattered around the internet, and there are no ‘regular’ codes that you will be able to use at any time.

So… last but not least… the ‘Small hands’ question. Let’s split this answer up into two different sections. Ok, first, let me be straight with you. I have pretty big hands. Yes, that makes my life easier when it comes to playing this style. However, there was still a huge struggle to get there. Having big hands doesn’t necessarily just grant you the gift of being able to do this without any difficulty. So the point that I’m trying to make is that no matter what size your hands are, there is always a struggle. So I don’t want to allow the ‘small hands’ situation to be used as an excuse to not push through that struggle. Sure, your struggle may be more than mine, or it may even be less, but please don’t write off the chance of becoming proficient at this style by throwing in the towel before you’ve even begun. I have seen small children develop this style and I have seen huge men with large hands struggle to get this right after long periods of time. That’s not to say that there are some rare situations where some peoples hands just will NOT fit around the neck, but this is so rare that I can say with a certain degree of confidence that this is most likely not you. Secondly, in order to know if you can do it, you have to try every possible angle (excuse the pun) and experiment with every aspect of the style (allowing your muscles the time to learn and adjust) before you decide you can’t do it. If you want to know what these are, then I have a full course dedicated to mastering this called “Mastering The Thumb” where you can explore all the little things that make a real difference. And not until you’ve tried ALL of that, and practiced it ALL until your thumb wants to jump off your hand and never return, do you have the excuse, or not even the right, to convince yourself that you can’t do this. You can. You will. I’m confident in your thumb 🙂 (SIDE NOTE: If you are one of the VERY few people who genuinely can’t do this no matter what you try and how long you try it for, there are ways and means around playing the songs, you just have to figure out what works for you. The lessons will still guide you through what to play, and how to play it.)

Don’t worry, this is absolutely fine, and exactly what it should say. There isn’t supposed to be any downloadable files. The courses can be found in the ‘My Dashboard’ section of the website. Here you can download the Course materials, and stream the videos for all the courses. You also have the option to download the videos to use offline. Just click on the ‘Vimeo’ logo in the bottom of any video and then click the download button. Please note that if you download any files directly to your device, it will affect your refund policy. See the ‘Refund Policy’ section below for more details.
 

In the course, I’ve included three versions of the tabs. The first two are .gp5 and .gpx files which are Guitar Pro tabs and so are so you will need the Guitar Pro software to open them. The third is a pdf file which will open on any device that can read pdfs. Most devices nowadays have software built in that can read pdfs but if yours doesn’t, you can download adobe acrobat here. The tabs are the same in all three files, but if you want to use the playback feature in Guitar Pro, you can buy the software here if you can afford it. If you do a search online, you can probably also find a free version of the software also. Once you download Guitar Pro, you should have no problems with opening the .gp5 and .gpx files.

Because a lot of the material that I teach is copyrighted by other artists, I have had to obtain a license to use these songs in my courses. This license covers the teaching of the songs as I do in my courses, but unfortunately, it does not cover the distribution of these songs. Providing a complete download of the cover in any form, audio, or video, would be technically ‘distributing’ these songs and would not provide the original artist with the ability to track these songs. I want to make sure that each Artist I cover gets exactly what they are due and what they deserve, and so I do not include any downloads of these songs in any of the course packages. You can, however, download and/or stream these songs on Youtube, iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play, etc. if you need to work alongside them. This way you can own the audio, but the original artist is also getting paid, and I’m not getting sued for copyright violations 🙂

On some very rare occasions, you may lose access to your courses sometime after buying them. This is likely due to a caching issue and should be very easily solved by just ‘clearing browser history’ or trying to login using a different browser. The reason it happens is that your browser is serving you a ‘cached’ version of the site, which basically means that it’s showing you a ‘snapshot’ of your account before you bought the course – meaning that you won’t have access to it. Mostly this isn’t an issue, but sometimes your browser and my site get tangled up in a game of Twister and collapse onto each other, (particularly when the site is very busy) but you just need to give your browser a clean start to refresh itself. So try clearing your internet history and see if that works. If not, click the link below and let us know in as much detail as you can what the issue is. Describe when you last accessed the courses, when you saw that you had lost access, and which courses you have bought and which you have lost access to. If you want a quicker response, please also provide your username and password so we can look into your account for you. This info will be completely confidential but will considerably speed up the process if provided with your first email.

All the videos in my courses are served via Vimeo Pro due to it’s global accessibility and quality. However, Vimeo may be blocked in a small number of countries including Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and Cambodia. If you live in one of these countries and are having trouble accessing the videos, you can follow these steps:
1. Press “download video”
2. Copy the Vimeo link to this site https://qdownloader.net/
3. Save it to your device that way
Thanks to Sheryl for the information!

I’ve made it super easy to upgrade to The Everything Bundle using a ‘points’ system. When you buy any song course, you will receive ‘points’ to the value of that song. Each point is worth £1, so, for example, if you buy a song course worth £25, you will receive 25 points to use against the cost of The Everything Bundle. When you want to upgrade, all you need to do is to add it to your cart, login on the checkout page (if you’re not already logged in) and you will see the option to ‘Apply Points’ to your cart’s total value on the Checkout page. Click this button and whatever you have spent on song courses will be removed from the price of The Everything Bundle. Please note that you can only use points against The Everything Bundle, and not for other bundles. WARNING: These points will expire after 60 days, so please make sure to take note of the date in your calendar, or set a reminder on your phone to make sure you get your upgrade.

When you purchase a course, you have 30 days to return your product for a full refund. I have done my very best to make these courses the best value for money that you can find online, but I do understand that any course may not be right for some people. Please note that if you download any of the videos or the course material, you will forfeit this 30-day guarantee, so be sure that you are happy with everything before you make any downloads by viewing all the content in your course online first. These courses take a lot of time and money to create, so if people start taking advantage of this refund policy and downloading everything and then requesting a refund, I would not be able to continue to create more courses in the future. 


When your refund is processed, you will no longer be able to access your course on jamieharrison.com, though you will keep your account username and password. You will also be removed from the facebook group and no longer be able to use the online Forum on my website.


PLEASE NOTE: Our Refund system is set up to remove the transaction from our website exactly 30 days after the purchase date/time. After this time, the money is removed from the website system and into our Tax and accounting system, making a refund impossible after this 30-day window. We ask that you please do not request a refund after this time as we will be unable to provide it under any circumstances and hate to disappoint people who may be a day or two over. Thank you for your understanding 🙂

The Jamie Harrison Guitar Users Facebook group is open to those who are the most committed to my lessons, i.e., those who have purchased lessons (which is what enables me to make new lessons). We want to ensure the highest quality control of this group and for that we have to keep numbers as tight as we can. I understand this might be frustrating for some people who have received a free course (which I am thrilled for you to have!), but because this group is run manually by volunteers, we simply wouldn’t be able to keep up with demand if all non-paying members were also allowed to join. Therefore, if you would like to gain access to the Facebook group just purchase course(s) valued at £29.99 or above. I’m really sorry about that but I promise that it makes for a much better experience when you do decide to bite the bullet and join up 🙂 See you over there!

MY PAYMENT WON'T GO THROUGH

Sometimes your payment will fail and you won’t receive your courses. This is most often due to a block that your credit card company has on your card for international payments as my company is based in Ireland. Even if you buy online regularly, this can still occur as the credit card company might have a list of ‘approved’ retailers (amazon etc) for which it might work fine, but it’s unlikely that little old jamieharrisonguitar.com made that list! All you usually have to do is contact your credit card provider and tell them to allow the payment, or else just pay with Paypal (you don’t need a Paypal account to do this and it’s very straightforward).

YOUR PRICES ARE LISTED IN POUNDS, CAN I PAY IN DOLLARS (OR ANY OTHER CURRENCY)?

Of course! Just go ahead and pay in pounds and we’ll only take dollars from your account. We’ll convert your dollars into the same amount in pounds using the official conversion rate on that day (with no hidden charges or fees that the bank would charge you). There’s no need to go buying pound sterling or anything like that. We’ve got you covered.

CAN YOU SHIP TO MY COUNTRY?

These courses are digital, so can be delivered anywhere in the world. Once you complete your purchase, you will be sent an email with your username and password, which will give you access immediately to your account on jamieharrisonguitar.com where you will be able to view all the courses you have bought. No shipping fees, no need for DVD drives, and no waiting around for products to arrive. Get started immediately!

WILL THESE COURSES WORK ON MY PHONE/TABLET?

Yes, these courses will work on all devices. The videos can be streamed on my website which is the best and most popular way to watch them, but you can also download them to your device to watch offline. The course material is primarily made up of pdf files which are standard files and can be read on most devices. If you have an older device you may want to download one of the free apps from your app store that allows you to view pdf files, although nowadays, most devices come with this software built in. If you want to download some of the content to view offline, you will have to ensure that you have enough free space on your device. The guitar pro files will not work on any device unless you have installed the guitar pro software to open them, however, I have also included the pdf of these tabs so you don’t need the guitar pro software.

ARE THESE DIGITAL OR PHYSICAL PRODUCTS?

All courses are digital, so will be delivered immediately upon purchase. The pictures shown for each course are just the images for ‘e-products’ ie. electronic products. It is standard nowadays with online and digital products to have such images representing them. They are for demonstration purposes only and you will not receive any physical items when you purchase a course. You will receive all material by video, pdf and guitar pro (tab) format, so you can print out the material yourself as you follow along with the videos. I speak more about this in the video below.

WHY LEARN FROM YOU WHEN THERE’S SO MANY FREE LESSONS ON YOUTUBE?

So it’s really impossible for me to say for sure. However, you do get lifetime access to the course obviously, so you can always come back to it as you please.

One thing I can guarantee is that you will learn A LOT from it, and if you are just getting started in this style, then it might be actually good to have all of this knowledge and understanding from the start.
I know it’s probably not the simple answer that you’re looking for, but it’s the best one I can give at the moment without knowing you.

DO I NEED TO PAY TAX ON THESE PRODUCTS?

Well… yes and no… If you’re living in the EU, I’m really sorry but you will have to pay tax when you buy these courses. I’m sorry, there’s nothing I can do about this, but of course, I don’t take any of this money. It goes to your local Government. If you are living outside the EU, then you’re in luck, you are free from tax!

CAN I MIX AND MATCH THE COURSES AND CREATE MY OWN BUNDLE?

Unfortunately, there is no option available right now to mix and match courses and create your own bundle. All bundles are currently listed on the courses page. Click here to view the bundles.

DO I GET AFTER-SALES SERVICE?

After you purchase a course, you will receive full customer service via email or via the website. However most questions have been answered on the FAQ section, so make sure you check this out before sending an email. However, If you are experiencing any problems, we’ll be sure to sort it out ASAP. You will also get access to the private Forum where you can ask me questions about Gear/Guitars/Songs etc (that is, if there’s anything left to ask after completing all the courses)! If you have specific questions about a particular video, the best option is to leave a comment under that video, and include the timecode that you are struggling with.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE ACCESS TO THE COURSES?

Let me make this short and sweet… FOREVER!!

DO I NEED EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT TO GET STARTED?

“What’s your Rig? What equipment do you use? What Gear are you using? What’s your setup?”


This is such an insanely common question, and unfortunately, the people who are most often asking this question are the people who are focusing and relying more on the tools they are using to make them a great player rather than actually doing the work that is needed. Please don’t fall down that trap, of believing that your tone is all about your gear. The real secret is.. IT’S NOT! I have had so many guitarists play through my exact setup and it sounds like a completely different guitar and amp is being used. Focus on your fingers first and foremost, and you will be able to make a cheap rig sound like it’s worth thousands. Do it the other way around though, and a Rig worth thousands can sound like you picked it up in a toystore.

The short answer is no, you don’t need an expensive rig to get started! I often use a guitar worth under $100 and it sounds great! Don’t let this become an excuse to stop you!

WHAT LANGUAGES ARE YOUR COURSES AVAILABLE IN?

As English is my main language. the videos found in these courses are spoken in English. However, there are subtitles available in the following
languages:
Spanish
French
Portuguese
German
The subtitles are provided through Google Translate so will be far from perfect, but they are included to make life a little easier for those not fluent in
English.

IF I BUY "THE EVERYTHING BUNDLE", DO I CONTINUE GETTING ALL THE COURSES YOU RELEASE IN FUTURE?

Unfortunately, I couldn’t possibly allow anyone who buys The Everything Bundle now to continue getting all my future courses. For this to be even sustainable, I would have to charge a monthly fee, and I don’t personally like to be charged that way as a customer (yes, I’m one of those people who always forgets what I’ve signed up for and years pass before I realise that I’ve been paying monthly to something I never even use). This is also how people get the most money from you – because they know that most people do in fact forget. It’s a pretty established principal in business ;) So to keep it clean for you, I only charge you once, and you get the course for life, but it’s a separate purchase to future course. Remember, the extra that you might pay to add on a new course might be only 5 or 10 bucks for you, but for me, when everyone doesn’t pay that extra 5 or 10 bucks, I potentially lose a heck of a lot more, and considering the amount of time that I put into each and every one of my videos/courses, this is something I simply cannot afford to do. I hope you can understand and you find this fair :)

I NOTICE THAT THE 'THUMB-OVER ' APPROACH IS USED A LOT IN THIS STYLE? IF I HAVE SMALL HANDS, WILL I STILL BE ABLE TO SUCCESSFULLY PLAY THESE SONGS?

So… last but not least… the ‘Small hands’ question. Let’s split this answer up into two different sections. Ok, first, let me be straight with you. I have pretty big hands. Yes, that makes my life easier when it comes to playing this style. However, there was still a huge struggle to get there. Having big hands doesn’t necessarily just grant you the gift of being able to do this without any difficulty. So the point that I’m trying to make is that no matter what size your hands are, there is always a struggle. So I don’t want to allow the ‘small hands’ situation to be used as an excuse to not push through that struggle. Sure, your struggle may be more than mine, or it may even be less, but please don’t write off the chance of becoming proficient at this style by throwing in the towel before you’ve even begun. I have seen small children develop this style and I have seen huge men with large hands struggle to get this right after long periods of time. That’s not to say that there are some rare situations where some peoples hands just will NOT fit around the neck, but this is so rare that I can say with a certain degree of confidence that this is most likely not you. Secondly, in order to know if you can do it, you have to try every possible angle (excuse the pun) and experiment with every aspect of the style (allowing your muscles the time to learn and adjust) before you decide you can’t do it. If you want to know what these are, then I have a full course dedicated to mastering this called “Mastering The Thumb” where you can explore all the little things that make a real difference. And not until you’ve tried ALL of that, and practiced it ALL until your thumb wants to jump off your hand and never return, do you have the excuse, or not even the right, to convince yourself that you can’t do this. You can. You will. I’m confident in your thumb (SIDE NOTE: If you are one of the VERY few people who genuinely can’t do this no matter what you try and how long you try it for, there are ways and means around playing the songs, you just have to figure out what works for you. The lessons will still guide you through what to play, and how to play it.)

REFUND POLICY

I have done my very best to make these courses the best value for money that you can find online, but I do understand that any course may not be right for some people. When you purchase a course, you have 30 days to request a full refund. Please note that if you download any of the videos or the course material, you will forfeit this 30 day guarantee, so be sure that you are happy with everything before you download anything by viewing all the content in your course online first.

If you are unhappy with something on my course, I would ask that you first send me a message first to let me know what the problem is and I will do everything I can to help fix this.
If we can’t come to a solution you are satisfied with together, I will return your money using the same payment method that you used to pay. Payments made with Paypal should be back in your account on the same day as I process them, but if you’ve paid with Credit Card, it may take up to a week to appear back in your account. To prevent fraudulent purchases, I require that all requests come with a valid reason for the request. This is not to make things more difficult for you, but simply to ensure that no one can steal my material which I’ve spent a lot of time creating. I hope you can understand and it’s not too much of an inconvenience. To request a refund please write to me at info@jamieharrisonguitar.com and tell me why you are requesting a refund, and please include the email address you used to pay for the course (if it’s different from the one you are writing on).

DO YOU HAVE YOUR OWN MUSIC?

As much as I love playing the guitar, it’s not the only thing I do. I also write my own music.
I will say that it’s not instrumental guitar music, and guitar certainly isn’t the main ‘focus’ of my own music. I love simple songs and lyrics. For me it’s not all just about being a flash guitar player. So if you are still interested in listening to my own music, you can find me as Jamie Harrison (NOT Jamie Harrison Guitar – which is also up there) on all the major music platforms like Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, etc, on Facebook and Instagram if you search JamieHarrisonMusic, and you can type Jamie Harrison into Youtube to find some of my original music also. All these links can be found on my second website jamieharrisonmusic.com.

*Keep in mind that my guitar channel is ‘jamieharrisonguitar’ whereas my original stuff is ‘jamieharrisonmusic’.

WHAT GEAR ARE YOU USING

This is quite a long answer and it’s probably the most common question I get asked. I use tonnes of different types of gear and while I love gear and buying more and more of it, I really want to discourage the idea that good gear will make you a great player. Even with the best gear, it can still really sound awful if it’s not played well. That being said, however, I’ve made several videos about each part of my setup, from my pedals to my amp to my guitars etc all the way to my recording setup, mics and even the software I use to record. This information can be found in two individual Bonus Courses called ‘My Gear Rig’ and ‘My Studio Gear’, both of which are included free to anyone who buys any of my courses. In the Mini-Course ‘5 Don’t Need to Knows’, you will also see me compare a €6,500 rig to a €500 rig and you will see that you really don’t need the most expensive of everything to sound great. I also give advice as to the best setups for three budget types, Low, Medium and High.

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR CLOTHES?

I get asked this question all the time, so I’m going to add a page to my site soon with the details of each of the outfits that I wear in each video :)

CAN I DOWNLOAD THE SONGS AFTER I BUY?

Well… yes and no… Unfortunately, because I’d be breaking my agreement with the copyright holders of these songs, I can’t include the audio downloads in the courses themselves. However, you are welcome to download or stream the songs on all major platforms iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Deezer, Google Play etc. This way, the original artist can get paid their share, and you can download and own the songs legitimately :)

I’M HAVING TROUBLE DOWNLOADING A VIDEO

The most common issue that I see when people are trying to download a video is that the Vimeo link is un-clickable. This happens because you are not signed in to your Vimeo account. If you do not have a Vimeo account, take 2 minutes to set one up for free so that you can download the videos. It’s worth having an account anyway, and Vimeo is a large and reputable company so you won’t get bombarded by mail from them or anything like that.

I'M HAVING TROUBLE VIEWING THE VIDEOS

On rare occasions, for very short periods of time, the videos may be inaccessible if Vimeo is down. You will usually receive this message from video on the videos themselves, but usually, they come back within a few minutes. There’s not much I can do about it, unfortunately, sometimes websites just experience downtime but as long as you stay strong and fight the urge to smash up your guitar and give up on music forever out of frustration, you should be able to view the videos very shortly! :)

I’M HAVING TROUBLE OPENING THE FILES/TABS

In the course, I’ve included three versions of the tabs. The first two are .gp5 and .gpx files which are Guitar Pro tabs and so are so you will need the Guitar Pro software to open them. The third is a pdf file which will open on any device that can read pdfs. Most devices nowadays have software built in that can read pdfs but if yours doesn’t, you can download adobe acrobat here. The tabs are the same in all three files, but if you want to use the playback feature in Guitar Pro, you can buy the software here if you can afford it. If you do a search online, you can probably also find a free version of the software also. Once you download Guitar Pro, you should have no problems with opening the .gp5 and .gpx files.

HOW DO I DOWNLOAD VIDEOS TO USE OFFLINE?

To download videos to be used offline, go to the video you wish to download, and click the Vimeo link down the bottom corner of the screen. You will be taken to a page where you will have the option to download the video. Click the download button below the video and the video will start downloading.

The only real issue that I see when people are trying to download a video is that the Vimeo link is un-clickable. This happens because you are not signed in to your Vimeo account. If you do not have a Vimeo account, take 2 minutes to set one up for free so that you can download the videos. It’s worth having an account anyway, and Vimeo is a large and reputable company so you won’t get bombarded by mail from them or anything like that. You can sign up for one here. Check the video below for a walkthrough on how to download the videos.

I’VE BOUGHT YOUR COURSES AND EVERYTHING WORKED FINE FOR A WHILE, BUT NOW THEY’VE DISAPPEARED FROM MY ACCOUNT?

On some very rare occasions, you may lose access to your courses sometime after buying them. This is likely due to a caching issue and should be very easily solved by just ‘clearing browser history’ or trying to login using a different browser. The reason it happens is that your browser is serving you a ‘cached’ version of the site, which basically means that it’s showing you a ‘snapshot’ of your account before you bought the course – meaning that you won’t have access to it. Mostly this isn’t an issue, but sometimes your browser and my site get tangled up in a game of Twister, (particularly when the site is very busy) but you just need to give your browser a clean start to refresh itself. So try clearing your internet history and see if that works. If not, click the button below and let us know in as much detail as you can what the issue is. Describe when you last accessed the courses, when you saw that you had lost access, and which courses you have bought and which you have lost access to. If you want a quicker response, please also provide your username and password so we can look into your account for you. This info will be completely confidential but will considerably speed up the process if provided with your first email.

I CAN NO LONGER ACCESS THE LOGIN PAGE. WHAT HAPPENED?

If you suddenly have been blocked from entering the login page, and you keep getting redirected back to the homepage, this means that you have likely been blocked because you entered your password wrong too many times. Your IP address is likely in our ‘blocked list’. This is to prevent attacks on the site from bots who trying thousands of different passwords to hack the site. If you try from a different network (eg. your mobile phone data instead of your wifi), you should be able to access the login page as normal. To resolve this issue, please google ‘whats my IP’ and then send us your IP address along with a reference to this issue. We will unblock you and you will be able to use the site as normal.

I LIVE IN INDONESIA, CAMBODIA, MALAYSIA, VIETNAM OR ANOTHER COUNTRY WHERE VIMEO IS BLOCKED?

All the videos in my courses are served via Vimeo Pro due to it’s global accessibility and quality. However, Vimeo may be blocked in a small number of countries including Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam and Cambodia. If you live in one of these countries and are having trouble accessing the videos, you can follow these steps:
1. Press “download video”
2. Copy the Vimeo link to this site https://qdownloader.net/
3. Save it to your device that way
Thanks to Sheryl for the information!

WHICH COURSE SHOULD I START WITH?

I can provide my own suggestions for this, but you will have to use some of your own judgement here and decide what level you are at and which course will suit that best. That being said, it’s no harm that you challenge yourself if you are most excited about any one particular course. This can also be helpful with motivation because these songs can certainly be challenging.

If you are a beginner, you should naturally start off with my beginner course. That will ‘prime’ you for playing in this style (although you should do a lot of practice of other basic songs as well as those included in this course).

Moving on from the beginner course, or if you’re not a beginner but want to understand the fretboard some more it’s good to get a solid foundation in the CAGED system so have a look at my CAGED course, and also the Mastery Collection which will give some very detailed insight into playing using your thumb, the ‘Rake’ Technique and other useful information around using online tools and setting up and working with your guitar ie. being your own guitar tech. If you have the head for Theory, or you’re motivated to learn the theory, then you might want to look at The Essential Music Theory course which is a short and basic Music Theory course and you should definitely have a good understanding of all the concepts in this course. If you want to really get a grasp on the entire scope of music theory as it relates to guitar, you may enjoy the full Music Theory course, ‘Music Theory Mastery’. It’s quite long so you can always jump in and out of this one.

In terms of songs and what’s easiest to start with, moving to what’s most challenging (in my opinion), I would suggest that you start with Bold As Love, move on to The Wind Cries Mary (and leave the looping and some of the second solo licks until later) or Little Wing, then proceed to one of the ‘medium-difficulty’ songs like Slow Dancing in a Burning Room, Ain’t No Sunshine, Sultans of Swing, I Shot The Sheriff (This one is a good one if you’re new to looping) or Life Without You then finally Gravity or Lenny. Neon will potentially make you question your entire existence, so I’d suggest leaving this till last :) This is just one idea of how to progress through the courses, so feel free to switch it around as you wish.

ON THE PURCHASE CONFIRMATION PAGE AND IN MY EMAIL RECEIPT, IT SAYS ‘NO DOWNLOADABLE FILES’?

Don’t worry, this is absolutely fine, and exactly what it should say. There isn’t supposed to be any downloadable files. The courses can be found in the ‘My Dashboard’ section of the website. Here you can download the Course materials, and stream the videos for all the courses. You also have the option to download the videos to use offline. Just click on the ‘Vimeo’ logo in the bottom of any video and then click the download button. Please note that if you download any files directly to your device, it will affect your refund policy. See the ‘Refund Policy’ section below for more details.

FACEBOOK GROUP POLICY

Unfortunately, we want to keep the group open to only the most committed members and due to the large number of users who take one of my free courses, we can’t open it to everyone. Therefore, if you would like to gain access to the Facebook group you can purchase any course of your choosing to the value of 29.99 or above. We want to ensure the highest quality control of this group and we have to keep numbers tight for this. I understand this might be frustrating for some people but this group is run completely manually and we simply wouldn’t be able to keep up with demand if all non-paying members were also allowed to join. I’m really sorry about that but I promise that it makes for a much better experience when you do decide to bite the bullet and join up :) See you over there!
