Recreate the sounds of the greats

Better understand guitars, amps & pedals
So, you've owned a host of different amps, pedals and guitars, hoping that each one will be the magic solution to your ideal tone. The truth is, with the right knowledge, you can achieve incredible guitar sounds with any amp and basic gear. Nick will teach you how to get the best from your current equipment, saving you time and money!
Make everything you play sound great!
Great tone is a combination of many things and, whilst it doesn't come entirely from your fingers, shaping your sound has a great deal to do with control.
Learn how the way you play impacts your tone and sound at the source of everything!
Keep buying new gear but things still don’t sound right?
How many times have you purchased a new pedal, amp or guitar, hoping it will help you sound like your favourite player or match the amazing tones you've heard in review videos? Yet, you still sound the same?
The answer lies in how you use your pedals, amp and guitar to work in harmony with each other and how you adjust your playing in response. This is the game changer!
Save yourself years of tone chasing and trial & error. Learn to how to craft the ultimate guitar tone; from your fingers to your amp.
Learn how to control your overdriven sound, the best way to set your overdrive & distortion pedals and amp drive. Plus how to tame distortion with your technique.
Take control of your tone!
Develop the knowledge you need to create the tones you need everyday. Craft a solid rock lead tone, the perfect sound for crunching riffs, or a killer silky blues sound.
Sound like a pro in any style.
Get to grips with the sounds you have always dreamt of copying; including EVH, Hendrix, Joe Satriani and more.
Go beyond just playing the right notes for the song; achieve the sound of your heroes.
Learn musical examples and apply your new knowledge as Nick works on your guitar sound with you in real-time.
Hear your tone improving immediately!
Which gear do you need? How do you use delay, reverb and other essential effects? How do you shape your own tone, build a pedal board and choose the right amps, guitar and pedals for you.
Make the most of your current equipment.
Achieve the tone in your head, the sound you hear on legendary recordings and learn the secrets of the pros!
You've learnt that riff or solo, but you still don’t sound like the recording. Sound familiar?
We've all been there; you slave away perfecting your favourite song - that soaring solo, that earth shaking riff. You're playing the parts right but that solo still sounds thin, those riffs lack punch. Is it your amp? Your guitar? Could it be your playing?
The truth is, developing a great tone isn't as simple as accumulating the right gear. You can’t buy great tone in a store. It comes from knowledge and skill - much the same as your playing.
Many players spend their lives chasing the perfect tone. But why spend a lifetime. Solve your gear and guitar tone hang ups in only 3 hours!
What people are saying about Bootcamps
"I had a great day"
"I had a great day at the boot camp. It was hugely beneficial and very enjoyable. It’s amazing how much ground was covered in a single day and it gave me plenty to keep me busy for the foreseeable future. The one to one follow up session was also very helpful. I’m looking forward to the next BootCamp"
"I can't thank you guys enough"
"The Boot Camps I have attended have improved my knowledge of the fretboard, my ability to voice chords and solos, and most importantly given me direction in my practice! I can't thank you guys enough and look forward to more!"
"For me guitar is now about having fun as I don't play out anymore, but Danny's boot camp has made playing more fun, and in one half day session given me more new information than I learned in the entire pandemic over the last two years. Great player, great guy, great info, and great fun!"
