Frequently Asked Questions

Promise I'll like it?
Yes! We're confident you'll be a happy subscriber. But if you're not satisfied for any reason just let us know and we'll be happy to issue a refund.
What if I want to switch to a new plan?
You'll be able to upgrade or downgrade plans at any time during your membership.
How do payments work? Is this secure?
We process payments with Stripe and Paypal, both of which use industry-standard security to keep your payment info safe.
Does my membership include slow-mo clips and tablature?
Yes, it's all here on the site. And to make life easier, we include links to Guitar Pro and PDF tablature files on each page as well.
Can I still purchase downloads?
Yep! You can browse our download store here. Any download product you buy gives you access to that portion of the site, so you can still use our Soundslice tab player and interactive timeline display for that interview or seminar.
Can you give me some more detail on all that's included?
The best way to learn more is to make a free account. With an account, you can checkout the introductory help video on your dashboard. That should explain everything! From there you can click around the site and see how it's all laid out!
