Do you want to finally dig deep into what you know is true - that you can be a better, quicker and more creative guitarist than you are today? Do you want to connect with others who share the same passion as you? Read on.

Recently the folks at Skype told me that if there was one guitarist out there that could get metalheads playing together in the internet world, it would be me.

I did not think much of it as first, except being thankful for the complement, but then the gears in my mind started to turn.

What if they are right, indeed?

Then, I started remembering that one of the main gripes from many guitarists that I meet is that they are not in contact with many other players who just get “it” and are into the same type of music and playing they are into. They kind of feel alone in their quest to play better and don’t have enough feedback.

This explains why my Metal Heroes Summer Collective and The Metal Guitar Retreat are such popular destination getaways. Not only the players get awesome personalized instruction there, but they are indeed connected with others just like them when they attend these events. And, let’s face it, guitar playing can be extremely rewarding, but sometimes lonely place and not as fun if you have to go at it alone.

Welcome to Metal Mike’s Metal For Life Online Guitar Program.

This group is meant to put like-minded guitarists together under one roof. It is a place where I post an occasional free guitar lesson, I answer your questions and we cover motivation and mindset needed to obtain your playing goals. This is a place where Heavy Metal rules and we talk Metal guitar 24/7. You can post video of your playing for others to check out and I'll check them out and comment as well.

And, I will be presenting themed workshops every so often that you can opt-in to and do a group lesson with me for a small fee. That is absolutely optional.
