My Goal Is For You to Achieve
Real Freedom with Your Guitar

This is what guitar freedom actually means:

The ability to pick up your guitar and play anything you want, anytime, without having to stop and calculate fret positions, finger placement, scale and key relations, etc.

I want you to be able to:

  • “Visualize” the music – and play it on the spot, right there.
  • Tackle any chord progression (including “advanced chords” with numbers and symbols) and play it with enthusiasm and inspiration.
  • Create beautiful, melodic solos that go beyond the 15 blues licks everyone’s been playing for the past 50 years.
  • Play and jam with other musicians with complete confidence.
  • Create and improvise your own music and song arrangements.

And most importantly,

  • I aim that every time you pick up your guitar, you’ll end up thinking one thing:

“Woah! When Did I Learn How to Play That?!

What All of Top Guitar Teachers
Know, But Never Talk About

Having personally interacted with literally thousands of students from all over the world, I can share this secret with you: 99% of guitar players, in any skill level, have one thing in common:

They feel stuck.

On exactly the same issues.

You know what I’m talking about.

You might be a beginner or you’ve been playing for 30 years, you’ve done the exercises, memorized the shapes, and yet:

  • You hit a wall whenever you run into a chord you don’t recognize.
  • You play songs the same way every time. (You can’t “make it your own”.)
  • You’re used to three keys (Am, G, D) and need a capo for anything else.
  • You Google chord diagrams and tabs, try them out – and it doesn’t sound anything like the original song.
  • During jam sessions, you keep playing the same handful of common blues licks in all your solos.
  • You have a small collection of songs and solos that you feel comfortable with, so you mostly play them and nothing else.

Sounds familiar?

Before I Tell You Why This Problem Is So Common,
I Want You to Listen to Me:

You’re not a “lazy learner”.

Your hands aren’t “too small for the guitar”.

You have a perfectly fine sense of rhythm.

Your motor skills are completely normal.

Your guitar setbacks are entirely not your fault.

Got it? Fantastic. Now, here is the answer:

The reason that an overwhelming majority of guitar players feel stuck, is that

The Traditional Teaching Method
Isn’t Fit For Modern Musicians

You see, back when the “copy my moves and memorize them” teaching method was created, there were composers and there were performers. The “memorization method” was designed to create classical music performers who followed the composer’s notes. That’s it.

It wasn’t meant for creative modern guitarists like us. This is why, when you learn music only by memorizing it, you’re actually fighting an exhausting battle.

I’ve been there. I was constantly afraid that I will miss or forget the next note. I was afraid of playing “the wrong notes”. I was afraid that other musicians were going to find out that I didn’t really know what I was doing.

Until I realized that memorizing ≠ understanding.

Instead of bringing my personal musical vision to life,
I was worried about making mistakes.

Thanks to an outdated learning method whose sole aim is to make us classical performers who follow instructions, and aren’t allowed to play any “wrong notes”.

(Spoiler alert: “There is no such thing as wrong notes”. Miles Davis.)

Thankfully, there’s an entirely different, modern, and much more natural way to learn guitar – and music.

The Only Difference Between
Struggling Amateurs and Confident Pros

Ear-Hand Coordination

What-What Coordination, Now?

Ear-Hand Coordination. “Hearing” with your hands.

You already have this ability with your voice.

For example, if I sing you a line from a song – you can instantly sing it back to me without any problem whatsoever.

That’s the key skill that’s missing from your relationship with your guitar and thereby holding you back. Ear-Hand Coordination means to hear the music – and then play it without any cognitive middleman.

Interesting fact:

Did You Know That Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Tommy Emmanuel, Frank Zappa, David Bowie and even Louis Armstrong are all self-taught?

(Wait, what?)

It’s true. They never had a music lesson in their lives.

These fantastic musicians practiced
as hard as anybody else.

Only they practiced in a way that
made practicing fun and intuitive.

Being self-taught, they weren’t instructed to focus only on their hands, so they were free to focus on the music itself  – and by doing so, they intuitively cultivated A strong musical ear.

That’s why it often looks as if these people are “natural-born talents”. When you cultivate your musical ear – it opens all the other doors.

Understand this, and you’ve already made more progress than 95% of guitar players:

Understanding music is all about
hearing its nuances.

If you can hear it – you can play it.

Your hands follow your ears
not the other way around.

Ear-Hand Coordination accelerates your progress and transforms practicing from a mechanical chore into an experience of pure musical discovery.

It accelerates your technical instrumental progress, because you are learning how to produce the music that you want to play.

Ear-Hand coordination frees your musical mind to be creative, experimental and confident.

I Know, Because It Happened to Me

My name is Assaf Levavy and it’s a pleasure to meet you.

I’m very lucky. For over a decade now, since 2011, I’ve had the privilege to help millions of guitar players around the world break their boundaries and find freedom on the guitar through my beloved and respected YouTube channel, LickNRiff (aka The Hidden Treasure of the Guitar World).

I was (and still am!) a “lazy learner”. I rarely practice more than 10 minutes a day. My hands are pretty small. I’m self-taught. And I used to fear and hate music theory and everything that had to do with it. If a chord had numbers and symbols in them – I’d search for an easier song.

And now, every day, it is amazing to me that I am able to reach so many people and help them play better, understand music and their instruments better, and drive their musical curiosity into higher and higher gears. I am so grateful that I’m able to spread my knowledge and love for music to anyone who wishes to go on this musical journey with me.

I’m living proof that Ear-Hand Coordination borders on magic. It just makes life so much easier. Music isn’t meant to be a chore – it’s meant to be enjoyed. Every second of it.

I believe that music is dynamic. It’s a living, breathing thing, and every musician is different. I believe that each of you has a musical story to tell. I’m here to help you tell it.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve got you covered! One of the courses included in the program is my 7hr Ultimate Beginner Guitar Course, which contains over 120 lessons that will take you from complete beginner to a confident, awesome intermediate. Then you can learn all the other courses!

They’re even better.

Because there is no time restraint (YouTube prefers short videos, up to 15 minutes), the courses go much, much deeper than is possible on YouTube.

These courses are an in-depth, music academy-level dive into serious skills that will take you on the road to complete freedom on the guitar.

Everything is in streaming digital video embedded into the members area and is easily browsable.

There are short PDF ‘cheat sheets’ for a couple of the courses, but other than that, it’s all video. Of course, there are on-screen tabs whenever necessary.

I’ll be honest here. If you are looking for repetitive, mechanical exercises where you copy my playing note for note, then my courses are probably not for you.

But! If you’ve grown tired of the frustrating pattern-and-diagram method and you’re looking for a creative musical experience that will turn you into a complete guitar musician, with full understanding and control of what you play, then you’re in for an incredible joyride that will revolutionize the way you learn and play your guitar.

Keep in mind, you’ll have to put in the work (every skill worth its salt takes a little time to develop), but you’ll also enjoy every second of it.

I’m not here to give you chores. I’m here to help you break your boundaries and unlock your full guitar potential.

If that’s what you’re looking for – then go ahead and start. I’m looking forward to granting you full and instant access to all my courses.
