Chris’ internet presence and notoriety took off when he started his YouTube channel Chris Zoupa/Learn That Solo, which is primarily devoted to rock and heavy metal lead guitar and solos. Chris wrote instructional and educational articles for UltimateGuitar.com for 2 years and was a teacher on their instructional app. After his work was seen by Australian Guitar Magazine he left Ultimate Guitar and focused his energies on regular contributions to the magazine.
With many years of live performing and teaching, Chris now wants to create a no-nonsense set of lessons to help everyone, regardless of their technical ability or level of music theory knowledge. These lessons will focus on creating an awareness of scale knowledge, usage, and practical application – and, of course, the secrets, hacks and short-cuts to the many great guitar techniques.
