Hi, I'm Nathan Mills.

A professional guitarist with a master's degree in classical guitar performance, founder of BeyondTheGuitar.com and its YouTube channel of over 400,000 subscribersAND...

... I do not practice my scales!

(I know... blasphemy, right?)


🎸 The guitar world is screaming at you

That, to be a great guitarist, you need to spend hours practicing scales.


😎 And every "internet guitar guru"

Seems to have some new magic drill or exercise that promises to finally turn you into a guitar god...

... and yet all their drills sound like the musical equivalent of fingernails on a chalkboard and somehow each exercise turns out to be more boring than the last 😬

While pursuing my undergraduate and master's degrees in classical guitar performance, I spent the majority of my time practicing and playing actual music that I loved, while many of my classmates were slaving away over drills and scales.

I figured out early on that,

In most cases, you can master all of the same techniques that these drills target - by simply turning sections of actual music into exercises themselves

Now, with the technical foundation I built using this method - I'm able to play the music I love beautifully for an audience of over 400,000 people through my YouTube channel, all while helping thousands of guitarists around the globe develop their technique so they can play the music they love.

So how does this help YOU?

🐌 Your progress is slow because you're bouncing from drill to drill, but never following through and committing to something for the long term

You'll see far better results by practicing a few beautiful pieces of music that target specific techniques, because you'll actually enjoy playing them - which motivates you to stick with it and practice them every day!

⏰ You're busy. So why on earth would you want to spend your limited practice time playing things you don't enjoy??

You don't have to choose between developing your technique or playing music you love. You can do both at the same time and enjoy every moment of your practice time!

With this method, you only need 2 things to become an excellent fingerstyle player:

1. The right music

You need to find pieces of music that specifically target and use the techniques you're trying to develop.

Trying to improve your scales? Practice a piece with a scale passage in it. Trying to play faster arpeggios? Practice a song that uses lots of arpeggios.

Seems obvious, but the catch here is that the music has to use the techniques in a way that's straightforward and simple enough to allow you to focus entirely on the technique itself without being bogged down and distracted by everything else going on in the music.


2. Clear direction

In order to see the greatest and most efficient progress in your playing, you need clear direction on HOW to practice these techniques.

Blind repetition doesn't cut it.

You need to have a deep understanding of each technique so you know exactly what you're doing wrong and have a clear path to follow in your practice to master each technique.

So you're probably wondering:

  • What pieces or songs should I start playing that target the techniques I need?

  • What techniques should I even be focusing on in the first place to improve my fingerstyle playing?

  • Where do I go to get clear guidance on how to properly play and improve each of these techniques?

Let me help you with that.

My 90-Day LIVE Fingerstyle Technique Program built around


12 Beautiful pieces of music

That teach you to master the  

12 Techniques

That you need in order to play your favorite fingerstyle or classical guitar pieces beautifully...


So you don't have to rely on boring drills!


Your Fingerstyle Journey

Throughout our 90-Day Fingerstyle Journey together...

We will meet each week for a LIVE group lesson on the livestreaming platform Superpeer.

Each lesson will introduce a new technique and a new beautiful piece of music for you to practice that week to master that technique.

We start simple, and as the weeks progress and as your skill improves through the program - the music and techniques become increasingly advanced so that at the end of the 90 days, 

You'll be equipped with everything you need to play your favorite fingerstyle or classical guitar music!


Students are loving it!

And the best part... it's LIVE!

Which means it's interactive.

Because I'm teaching each lesson LIVE on Superpeer, you'll be able to interact with myself and your fellow students during and after each lesson.

I'll be answering all your questions during the dedicated Q&A sessions at the end of each lesson.

AND I'll reserve time at the end of each session to bring a few interested students onto the livestream with me to give you direct real-time feedback on your playing!

Whether you receive the feedback yourself personally or not, it's still incredibly valuable to observe your teacher giving feedback to your fellow students - because they likely struggle with many of the same issues you do.

If you can't attend each lesson LIVE... no worries!

We'll be meeting on a consistent day and time each week so you can plan accordingly, and each lesson will run for 60-90 minutes - but I have students all over the world, so I understand it might not be possible for you to attend each session LIVE.

So with your purchase of Fingerstyle Journey today - you'll receive lifetime access to these lessons, and the recordings will be available immediately after the session ends for you to watch and rewatch at your convenience.

So whether you attend each live session or not, you'll have access to all 12 lessons to refer back to whenever you need them - now, or years down the road!


So how much does Fingerstyle Journey cost?

The value, content, and direct access to your teacher you're getting with this 12-week program is comparable to a semester-long music course at a university, which I’ve paid over $1,000 each for. 

And to learn this material from me 1-on-1 via private lessons costs $100 an hour. With the 12 weekly lessons in this program at over 1 hour each, that would add up to over $1,200!

But I want to make this knowledge as easily accessible and affordable as possible for any guitarist out there who wants to be able to play their favorite fingerstyle or classical guitar pieces beautifully…

And that's why you can get lifetime access to the Fingerstyle Journey program for just one payment of $97.

Because I truly want to help you meet your guitar playing potential, I'm going to sweeten the deal. When you join Fingerstyle Journey today, I'm giving you free lifetime access to my private community on Discord where you can chat with myself and other students, ask questions, and get feedback and encouragement.

I'll be releasing a non-LIVE non-interactive version of this course later this year featuring enhanced visuals and multiple camera angles for an even more immersive learning experience as if you were right here in the studio with me.

So you'll be getting the best of both worlds! Real-time interaction and Q&A's with myself and other students in the LIVE version, and the enhanced visuals and overall production value of the updated non-LIVE version. All for the price of one!

JumpStart Arranging is for you if...

  • You want to make your own guitar arrangements but keep getting stuck on 1 or more of those 5 arranging roadblocks we discussed in the section above
  • You’re tired of scouring the internet all alone, trying to piece together all the knowledge you need to make arrangements - and want the guidance of a teacher to walk you through the process.
  • You have at least 6 months to a year of fingerstyle or classical guitar experience, but little to no music theory knowledge. No prior music theory knowledge required here!
  • You’re willing to put in the work to make your first guitar arrangement as long as you’re following a proven method that allows you to work at your own pace
  • You might have already completed an arrangement, but still consider yourself a beginner arranger and feel you would benefit from completing another simple arrangement under the guidance of a teacher
  • You’re interested in the idea of making your own arrangements but aren’t sure if you’re ready to invest a ton of time or money into learning the process. JumpStart Arranging gives you an affordable option to test the waters, learn the process, and make your first arrangement without a huge time commitment. 


This is NOT for you if...

  • You’re expecting an all-encompassing arranging method that teaches you absolutely everything you could ever possibly need to know about the arranging process, along with a bunch of advanced music theory. JumpStart Arranging is all about simplifying the arranging process and helping you to take action by teaching you the necessary musical concepts you need to make your first guitar arrangement.
  • You plan to binge through the video lessons without putting in any work or following along with the action steps. This course is designed to help you create your first guitar arrangement from start-to-finish, but if you’re expecting results without getting hands-on and doing any of the work yourself - you’re missing the point.
  • You’re a more experienced arranger, having already completed several of your own arrangements, and are looking for a method to level up your arranging skills. This course is a better fit for beginning arrangers, so you’d be more interested in my Arrangers Academy - my private monthly guitar arranging program and community.

Don't forget: it's completely risk free

So much planning and thought went into the method I’m teaching in JumpStart Arranging because I so want for you to be able to finally start making guitar arrangements of the music you love and to guarantee that you’d come out of the course with your first arrangement completed.

As you go through the course, I’m confident you’ll see all the value I’ve packed in there - but to make it a no-brainer deal for you I’m giving you a 30 day 100% money-back guarantee with your purchase of JumpStart Arranging today.

You can go through the course, check out the bonus material, follow the steps, complete your first arrangement under my guidance - and if you don’t love it in the first 30 days of your purchase, send me an email and I’ll refund you immediately.

No questions asked, no hard feelings.

If JumpStart Arranging doesn't work for you, I'd much prefer for you to take your money and invest it where you will be happier and get results. I just want you to be able to play the music you love! 


Now I mentioned bonus material...

Because I wanted to pack as much value as possible for you inside this course - if you sign up for JumpStart Arranging today, you'll get access to a phenomenal bonus training.

Imagine being able to personally ask me any of your arranging or guitar-related questions...

After everybody who joins JumpStart Arranging before the deadline has had a few weeks to go through all the course material, we'll schedule a virtual LIVE Q&A-style group masterclass where you'll be able to ask me any questions related to arranging and guitar in general.

And I'll upload the masterclass replay for you to watch and rewatch whenever you like!

If you can't attend the event live for any reason, don't worry! In addition to having lifetime access to the replay, you can submit your questions beforehand and I'll try to get to as many as I can.

We'll go for at least 90 minutes!

Imagine 90 days from now...

You could choose to miss out on this opportunity and continue to attempt to improve your fingerstyle technique on your own...

You're still aimlessly bouncing around from YouTube video to YouTube video, a random drill here, a dead-end exercise there, from one song to another - without a plan and never committing to anything.

You haven't learned a single new song from start-to-finish because something always causes you to get stuck...

A bar chord that keeps buzzing no matter how hard you squeeze... A big stretchy chord you can't reach... A blazing arpeggio your fingers just can't keep up with...

And then the cycle starts over... Back to YouTube. Back to more exercises and guitar gurus making empty promises. And little by little your enthusiasm to practice dwindles to nothing as your progress slows to a halt.


You could choose to join me on this Fingerstyle Journey today and have 12 beautiful pieces in your repertoire! 

Your practice is fun and rewarding again because, not only are these pieces beautiful and fun to play - but they're helping you see unprecedented progress in your playing and with these techniques you've been struggling with for so long.

Bar chords are no longer painful... You're reaching chords that felt impossible 90 days ago... Your plucking hand blazes through quick arpeggios with ease and precision...

You have a clear path forward to grow into the guitarist you've dreamed of - with the guidance of a teacher and the support of a community of like-minded guitarists.

Join Fingerstyle Journey today, and let me help you make the most of your precious and limited practice time and, most importantly, help you enjoy every second of it!
