About fretjam

Greetings! My name is Mike Beatham, creator of fretjam.

I create guitar lessons focused primarily on music theory. My aim is to deepen your knowledge of the fretboard and help you develop a more intuitive understanding of how music works on our wonderfully versatile instrument.

I try to teach in such a way that invites and inspires exploration and experimentation, while opening your eyes and ears to different musical situations. It awakens a different part of the musical brain than simply learning licks and songs note for note. It's about connecting your aural and visual awareness of notes and chords, melody and harmony, giving your creative freedom a more confident sense of purpose and direction along music's rich tapestry.

My videos on Youtube have a unique style that, while I admit are not for everyone, are designed to give you many "eureka" moments and reveal more than simply where to put your fingers. Give them a try and see what you learn today!

If you've benefited from my content, your support is greatly appreciated. That's why I set up this Patreon page. You can support my lessons from as little as $1 per month (keep that ad blocker on guilt-free!). A little more will get you access to exclusive content and courses not found on the website or Youtube, plus Q&As and a chance to vote on what you want to see next. However, I pledge that 99% of my content will always be free to access. Your support at any level will help to motivate me and keep the free lessons coming.

Thank you so much for your time and support. I look forward to helping you expand your musical universe further. Cheers! And as always...

Be Yourself On Guitar.
