TrueFire Online Classroom :: Guitar Gym
TrueFire has outdone themselves with their Online Classroom concept. It’s an learning platform that allows you to hook up with stellar guitar educators in an environment where you can share digital media – videos, audio, messages, charts, images – back and forth helping you take your playing to the next level and beyond.
I’ve created a 500+ video chops boot camp called Guitar Gym that’s geared for all levels. It’s been nothing short of incredible for me to watch students from all over the planet(!) get their chops together. Since the Guitar Gym’s start as part of the first batch of TrueFire Online Classrooms – called Sherpa classrooms – I’ve had the distinct honor and pleasure to work with students from Australia, Germany, Bermuda, Norway, Iraq, England, Portugal, Mexico, Switzerland, Sweden, Brazil, Ireland, Canada, Japan, Italy, Saudi Arabia and Poland! Of course, my beloved USofA is well represented with students from here in my home state of NJ to all the way out in Hawaii and just about everywhere in between.
Join us!! It’s a great vibe with great people and a lot guitar insanity. So much so TrueFire decided to make Guitar Gym a full blown series of interactive courses! That’s great news for those who can’t commit to a classroom just yet, but still want to get in the ‘Gym for some chops building. It gets better – soon you’ll be able to take the Guitar Gym course series with you where ever you go with an iOS device!

Check out what some Guitar Gym students have to say…
“…What else can I say?! This is the future of one-on-one personal musical development – what the internet was made for!
Chris Buono is not only a great musician and artist in his own right but he is also a master educator. He gives you the confidence and the encouragement to get you to a place where you truly believe in yourself and your abilities and then with utter mastery, he will have you chopping up the fretboard like there is no tomorrow and your life depends on it.
He will respectfully and with subtleness point out your weaknesses and find the triggers to push your buttons and get you up up and away! Wholly batfire! this man is a superhero. Well you know it does feel out of this world when as a musician and artist you find a teacher, someone who you come to respect very early on and who actually listens to you and takes a personal commitment to your own development. Awesome man.
Benefits: A strategy, a plan, a workout schedule, your own personal trainer – GREAT!
“Sherpaland” is a global playground of like minded individuals all wishing to re-ignite the fire and passion and belief in there own musical abilities. Fantastic…
I can be discussing my personal plan face to face with Chris, and at the same time planning a musical class project with classmates from Denmark, Germany, USA and the UK whilst watching footage of Pre-Production at the Hollywood Bowl… that’s what I’m talking about…
No pressure felt, your own pace, total commitment from the team and Chris.
Dr. Funk: Congrats man! I am a believer!!
Oh and I forgot to mention: You get homework… Every day… Awesome. Luv it.”

“Untold millions of YouTube viewers know that Chris is an unbelievable guitar player. But only Guitar Gymnasts know that he is also a world-class teacher. He’s devoted, hands on, relentlessly demanding and ever-encouraging. Chris has plenty of carrots and sticks up his sleeve, making sure that you’ll be the best player you dare to be. Results are real and fast (and fun!). Guitar Gym will keep you as busy as you want and push you as hard as you need. The short time I’ve been at the ‘Gym has redefined my whole attitude toward playing. Signing up is likely to be a watershed moment in your musical journey as well. Buckle up, it’s a wild ride!”
