Frequently Asked Questions
How is Chopbuilder delivered?
The course uses a mixture of short video lessons, audio downloads, backing tracks and PDF downloads. Everything is fully explained and demonstrated in simple 'BS free' language (no confusing jargon!) and close up video shots.
Is there TAB available for the lessons?
Yes. Nearly all the lessons come with a professionally transcribed and fully downloadable PDF workbook featuring all the examples in TAB and notation including my improvised solos.
Isn't this the same course I've seen on your jamesshipwayguitar.com website for free?
Yes! I originally made Chopbuilder as a free series for my email subscribers. You've probably seen some of the lessons before.
Chopbuilder was so popular that I decided to do an expanded version of it featuring downloadable TAB workbooks and audio lessons. These extras are not available on my website...only inside Total Guitar Lab.
When will the new Chopbuilder lessons be added?
These are in the planning stages right now and I'll be making them later this year. Look for their release early 2017!
