4 ways this program is different than any other guitar teaching community on the planet

🎸 The right knowledge

With the right focus on the right knowledge, you will be catapulted into the ranks of successful guitarists. We live in a day and age where knowledge is so easily available at our fingertips - but that doesn't mean that it is the right knowledge that will help you. 
Music is so much more than just what most guitar education portrays it to be. When we play it becomes our fullest expression of human existence. It is ancient and modern at the same time. We deliver you the training you need to reach that state, related to the music of Jimi Hendrix. What that means is a learning experience with more joy, more motivation, more results, and an uninhibited, emotional way to express your feelings and let your soul soar!

🎸 The right learning structure

Nothing is left to chance. Someone will check in with your progress on a weekly basis, you'll have a chance to get one-on-one time on zoom every week, and you'll even finish a degree! That's what it feels like to have a coach in your corner. Under Ulrich's guidance, your learning will feel more effortless and fun because you can immediately get feedback. You will always know what to do next - gone are the days of self-doubt and aimlessness.

🎸 The right role model

I would argue there is probably no better artist to model than Hendrix, no matter if you are a newbie or you have already been around the block. Knowing the Hendrix catalog is a MUST for any well-versed player. He laid the foundation for modern rock playing in terms of phrasing, vocabulary, and tone more than any other guitarist. 

This new learning approach is similar to what world-class classical pianists experience when they study Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, etc. in their training. You can expect to have your musical mind be transformed in 12 months or less.

🎸 The right coach

There is only one person that can decide who is the right coach - that is you. However, we would think that the perfect coach for you has these qualities:

- is available for you
- can provide you with expert feedback
- is patient and supportive
- is honest and straight-up
- is an expert musician

Our weekly zoom lessons provide students with the perfect coaching without having to meet up or schedule. Whenever a student needs feedback or a resource, they can get in touch directly 24/7 via the member community, where everyone can learn and get inspired from the other students' progress. This creates accountability and a feedback loop that leads to amazing progress in a very short time, as witnessed by our students.

Notice that there isn't a "buy now" button on this website to become part of Total Guitar Transformation. Even if you wanted to join our wonderful community right away - it's not possible. The reason for the high quality and motivation level of this program is that all our students are personally vetted and selected. Slots are limited so we can devote the attention to every student he/she needs to make rapid progress - sometimes on a daily basis! There is no other program like it.

"What I love about Total Guitar Transformation ..."

A New Learning Experience

Will this work for you? Let's find out together! 🔥🔥


I've been playing for some time but this program sounds advanced. How do I know TGT Academy will work for me level-wise?

The reason it sounds advanced is because we don't water down content but talk to you as you were a bandmate. We recommend to have at least 2 years of playing experience, be able to bend some strings and know the basic pentatonic shapes. If you are absolutely in doubt what level you are on then please fill out this Clarity Guide. Also you can send a video (as an upload link please!) of your playing to info@ulrichellisonguitar.com and we will evaluate it. There is no commitment. It's just the most straightforward way for you to know, plus it will help you to get clarity!

I am an advanced player. Is this Academy for me? 

Absolutely. Total Guitar Transformation is for electric guitar players on all levels except absolute beginners. I personally use many of the techniques and exercises offered in the program in my daily practice schedule. The modules and lessons are stacked in degree of complexity and go all the way to playing over changes with inside and outside concepts, definitely going beyond the Hendrix idiom into modern rock guitar territory. The Hendrix transcription have an attention to detail that will satisfy even expert level players, there is something to learn for everyone. Plus almost all of the exercises and concepts can be adjusted in level of difficulty and conceptual understanding.

I am a total beginner. Do you recommend this program for me?

If you have never played guitar before then this is not the right program for you. Our Academy is transformational in nature, so there needs to be some prior experience if that makes sense. The best results are achieved from students with 2 years of consistent playing experience and up. Expect at least to know some basic string bending, pentatonic positions and chords. The materials and lessons do cover all the foundations from the start, but a true beginner would just take too long to get up to speed to learn those Hendrix songs.

I really want to join but I have time/commitment issues. How can I know this works for me?

Make no mistake, joining the Academy requires consistency. You also don't sign up for college and then never show up (at least that's not who we want to attract) That being said - we tried to make this program as flexible as possible. Our weekly lesson time is Tuesday, 2pm EST/8pm Central Europe. That's where most of our current students are. If you cannot make it to the live lessons - you can watch all the replays and fully participate in the group and submit all homework. It is entirely possible to graduate from this Academy without coming to a single zoom lesson! However, then all the other tasks need to completed.

As far as time commitment goes, you will need at least 30 min practice a day, plus 10 min of watch time. An hour a day is recommended. Consistency is more important than hours spent on the instrument. The great news is that you learn at your own pace and time schedule!

Do I need prior music theory knowledge?

No. If you do that’s great, but everything will be explained from the beginning.

Can I purchase the program now and get started in 3 months when I have more time?

Absolutely. You can start the program whenever it fits your schedule and work on your own pace. We do however highly recommend consistent practice for real results, and attend the weekly calls. All lesson calls will be recorded and can be watched again at any point in time.

What happens after 1 year, and I haven’t completed the program yet? Will I still receive mentoring?

It is very normal to spend anywhere from 6 to 18 months to go through the whole core curriculum. Then you can specialize on Blues, 70s Rock, Modern Rock or Funk Fusion. The majority of students will use our exercises and repertoire lessons for years to come. After you graduate, you are expected to study on your own. 

I really like the idea of this Academy and the unique concept but affordability is a problem. What are your payment options?

We understand the different backgrounds of our students and want to be accessible for any passionate guitarists as much as possible without sacrificing on quality. There are payment plans available for you. Let's have a chat to see how we might be able to help you, and what solution works best for you. Apply for chat here
