My Guitar Pal was founded by Lloyd English and Myles English, a father and son team with over six decades of combined experience as career musicians, guitar players, recording artists and teachers. Lloyd and Myles were compelled to begin MGP upon recognizing that the majority of guitar education information available online is disconnected, disorganized and often just plain wrong.
In their own private teaching they were experiencing a steady stream of students who had tried to learn from YouTube and other online resources only to become utterly confused and frustrated. Many of these students had simply given up trying to learn online and were now instead opting for private lessons.
It is this discovery that led to the conviction that “there must be a better way” and this in turn led to the development of My Guitar Pal. From the planning stages MGP was designed to offer an easy and educational solution to achieving not only the goal of learning to play the guitar but also the goal of learning to “understand” what you are playing.
