Nothing less than premium.

Fretwise is one of my proudest and most extensive projects ever. I’ve spent years building this whole operation, always striving for nothing less than a premium experience. Everything from the methods of my teaching, lesson structure, graphics, resources, website functionality, design, user experience, and all of the finer details that many might not even notice.

What's included with Fretwise membership?

100+ Lessons

6 Masterclasses packed full of instructional content. All lessons include detailed video instruction with onscreen tabs & diagrams, accompanied with full written transcripts. Where necessary, tabs, diagrams, and backing tracks are also ready to download!

Progress Tracking

Keep track of your progress by marking resources as 'complete'. Your progress will be logged so that it's easy to continue where you left off and look back on how far you've progressed.

Progress Reviews

Every masterclass provides the opportunity for you to submit video or audio of your performance for personalised feedback and review from Darryl. Whilst this isn't required to complete a class, it's definitely recommended!

Most frequent questions and answers

So many things!

  • I’m a firm believer of quality over quantity. Many lesson sites have many hundreds, even thousands of lessons and sometimes it feels like a game of numbers. There’s already an overwhelming amount of lessons on YouTube, so I’m here to “cut the b.s” and deliver the juicy goodness in the quickest and most effective way possible. You’ll spend less time getting lost, and more time on effective practice and learning!
  • I actually break down and discuss topics thoroughly, with demonstrations! Many other learning platforms post video demos, and only written explanations. I provide both video and written lesson notes, both in such intricate detail.
  • I recognise that teaching is a skill in itself beyond just being a great guitar player. Teaching is a skill I’ve been developing since my mid-teens, and not only in the area of music. I’ve taught thousands of one-on-one lessons, worked in schools, taught group classes in multiple venues, and helped millions of people via my YouTube channel. What you see on this website brings all of those skills together.
  • I settle for nothing less than best. Everything about this platform has been carefully put together and is always in a state of improvement.
  • My lessons accommodate beginners, intermediate, and advanced players. No matter what your genre or style interests are, there’s something that every guitar player can take from this platform.
  • Fretwise isn’t just a place that you come to learn, but also a place where you can get social in a community of like-minded guitar enthusiasts from around the world. Connect, get feedback, discuss, and grow together!

Yes, where required. All demonstrations and examples are transcribed in both Guitar Pro & PDF format. Backing Tracks are also provided where necessary. Not every lesson will contain tabs or backing tracks however, such as music theory lessons, but instead contain an abundance of fretboard diagrams.

Yes! If you don’t like the thought of recurring billing or you’re not interested in the awesome membership perks, then you can purchase access to only the classes that you want. You’ll get full access to the Masterclasses that you pay for, but you wont have access to the Daily Challenges or Progress Reviews.

Daily Challenges are shorter less intense lessons covering a whole range of topics. The goal of them is to give you more frequent short term tasks; tasks that you should be able to complete and develop within the same day.

At this time, lessons are not available for download. The only downloadable resources in any instance are practice resources such as tabs, backing tracks, or diagrams.

Unfortunately, there is no trial period, but here’s what we do offer:

  • Sufficient sample lessons for you to review from each Masterclass.
  • We have a 7-day money-back guarantee on all of our subscription plans. If you cancel your subscription account during the first 7 days of service we will issue a full refund. This means you can try out Fretwise risk-free for 7 days!
  • There are no long-term contracts; you can cancel your subscription at any time.

That depends on your plan. If you are a subscribing member then you will have access to all resources until you cancel your subscription. If you purchase the classes individually then there is no expiry date.

No. All content is unrestricted for subscribing members, and if you purchase Masterclasses individually then you will have access to the entire class as often as you’d like.

The only area that is limited is that subscribing members can only view a two week history of Daily Challenges. All Daily Challenges prior to the two week cap are removed. This encourages students to remain focused on an achievable amount of tasks rather than become lost in abundance.

During each Masterclass you’ll be given the opportunity to upload a video or audio demonstrating your progress with certain tasks. Darryl will watch/listen to your media and provide you with personalised constructive feedback. If your progress report meets the task requirements, you will earn badges for each of your completed progress reports. If you don’t quite meet the task criteria, you’ll receive tailored feedback on how you can improve.

Progress reports are not compulsory. You can skip through progress reports and proceed without limits.

Uploads are private reviewed only by Darryl, however you’re welcomed to share your media amongst the community forums!

You bet! There’s already a large selection of lessons available, plus the Daily Challenges will keep you on your toes, but I also have much more planned for release! Do you have your own ideas on what you’d like to see? Share your input in the community forums!

You can cancel anytime by quite simply entering your profile settings and hitting the unsubscribe button. It can’t get much easier than that! You will still be able to use Fretwise until the end of your pre-paid billing period.
