The last few months I felt like stuck with guitar, no inspiration, lack of motivation. After I found Pickup Music - I can't stop playing, jumping from one video to another - everything is super cool!

Carol H.

I'm really enjoying the Advanced Fusion & Funk Master Class. It's the perfect mix of fundamentals, some light gear talk, and the teacher is genuinely inspiring. It has already transformed my practice routine.
