Personalized lessons demonstrate every song study with a detailed walk-thru showing you exactly how to practice it to get results.

For the progressing guitarist, the Catching Fire tier includes all the rhythm guitar material from the lower tier along with its bonus materials, plus ad-free tutorial video walk-thrus of all the solo studies from Metal Lead Guitar 1 & 2. Additionally, I'll be adding new bonus material monthly!

These personalized lead guitar lessons show you exactly how to practice and understand the principles involved as well as pointing out common errors and how to avoid them. Even if you’re already familiar with some or most of the solos in this method, these videos will shed new light and insure a solid foundation in lead technique.

Technique Inferno

reward item
reward item
$15
per month
For the rock bottom price of about 50 cents/day, you get all the rhythm and lead guitar videos and bonus materials from the lower tiers, plus the Speed Mechanics for Lead Guitar videos and extras such as Troy's 3-hour, 7-part series "How I Practice."

You'll also gain access to the Video Review option. Here, you can video yourself playing an example, song or solo, (from any tier) and I will watch it and post my Video Response, offering perspective, constructive feedback, and generally helping you understand specifically how to move forward to improve fastest. NOTE: Submitting for video review is optional. If you do this, you are agreeing to allow me to post it as an instructional example for the benefit of others.

All tiers now include Discord benefits at that tier level! Discord is private chat/video/text server specifically created for this Patreon community group. Interact with other members, hang out, ask questions, get answers!

While much of the material in the Technique Inferno tier is primarily focused on the concepts and examples found within Speed Mechanics for Lead Guitar, you don't HAVE to be working on that material to join at this level. That is, if you are working in the rhythm guitar material of tier 2, it is fine to join here if you'd like the added benefits of video review, for example, or you want to view the bonus material at this level.

If you're a music fan who really enjoys Troy's new project message and music and would like to support his efforts further, please consider joining this tier, Big-Time Support!

In addition to receiving pre-release material and updates (as in Tier 1), you will also have your higher level support efforts recognized in the form of appearing under "Supporters who made this video possible" in video ending credits.

And finally, for all those nagging questions about the finer artistic details like what the songs and/or videos mean, why I created it the way I did, etc., you can ask and be answered by Video Response!

Blackbelt Face Melt

reward item
reward item
$150
per month
As you probably already realize, the right guidance at the right time can make all the difference! This tier adds a FULL HOUR private video lesson with me each month! But don't sweat it... you needn't demonstrate "Face Melting" technique to join here at the Blackbelt level; I'm happy to work with intermediate players as well. In fact, good private instruction is generally HOW intermediate players become face-melting blackbelts! Well, there may a bit of practice involved, too.

The bottom line is that here you will supercharge your technique for about $3/day, less than a Starbucks coffee. Some will say that's a lot. Maybe. But how much is your time worth? I mean, if you're spending a few hours a day practicing, isn't it worth a couple bucks to make sure you are on the right track? Stop beating your head against the wall and break through your barriers!

All tiers now include Discord benefits at that tier level! Discord is private chat/video/text server specifically created for this Patreon community group. Interact with other members, hang out, ask questions, get answers!

And after 3 months of Blackbelt membership, you will receive a free Troy Stetina Series logo T shirt “Mastering Metal.” Cool shirt. In black, of course. What's awesomer than that? And of course you also get all the lower tier materials: Rhythm guitar, lead guitar, Speed Mechanics, bonus material, extra studies, "How I Practice" series, Q&A, video review, etc. This is the full Monty.
