Since joining, I've been using the Master Classes a lot, and they've pushed me further than I ever thought I would go in guitar and music as a whole. I really love Pickup Music, I would 100% recommend it :)

I usually wouldn’t take the time to write, but Pickup is worth taking a few seconds. I can’t say enough positive things about the content and how enjoyable it is to use. I’ve recommended the service to my friends already and can’t wait to see how you grow it.

Pickup Music offers a great amount of guitar knowledge for those who are seeking it. I constantly have the Pickup website open whenever I sit down for a guitar session, it helps me organize my path to learning the instrument.
