Commonly Asked Questions

How can you really play 100 songs with only 8 chords?

Actually, you can play thousands and thousands of songs with just 4 chords.  Most popular songs contain 3-4 chords. Once you know the 8 chords in my program, you will be able to play a ton of songs in the key of G and D.  Using your capo, you will be able to play in any key and play songs in any style of music.

Why just 8 chords?

While leading worship for hundreds of people week after week, I noticed my band was using about 4-6 chords for the entire worship set.  Also, after watching pro worship leaders like Chris Tomlin, Matt Redmann and Paul Baolche, I realized they were playing song after song with just 3 or 4 simple chords.  Seemed silly to me to keep pounding young beginners with pages and pages of chords charts.  I simplified my teaching method and now my students are able to strum and play their favorite songs within a few short lessons.  Once they are inspired, they continue to be encouraged as they learn new techniques and theory that make them an even better player.  With my approach, students do not get overwhelmed and quit in the early stages.  They do not spend 6 months in lessons without playing a full song.  In fact, they are playing a full song within the first month of lessons!

How do I connect with my teacher, Eric Roberts?
It is easy to connect with me by sending an email from the contact page. For questions you may have during your study, it is best to send an email so I can respond quickly and accurately.

How long does it take to ship?
If you would like the complete online materials printed on DVD and Books and shipped to your house, please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery.  You can start right now with instant access to the online school!

I want to start a class and teach this material for my home school or youth group.
My books and materials work great in a group setting and I have seen many groups have great success.  It works well with one moderator (teacher) who knows how to play and can commit to teaching a weekly class.  Small groups of 2-5 work great. Up to 10 students can work with a qualified teacher.

I struggle with singing while playing.  Will your teaching style help me?
YES!  I focus on this specifically and teach you techniques to learn to sing and strum at the same time.

Why do some of the chords look different in your book?
As you will learn, there are more than a few ways to play (voice) each chord.  The chords I teach in the beginning are popular and widely used chord shapes used by the top guitar players in the world.  They look different from the traditional shapes that some beginner books teach.  When you play these modern voicing of the common chords you will sound more like the pros because these are the forms they are using in the popular top chart  songs.  Also, I picked these shapes because they sound the best and are easiest to learn.  Once you have the hang of these shapes, you will be able to easily make all of the other shapes.
