“I have played guitar for many years and felt my playing and writing had reached a plateau. I reached out to Paul and have been amazed at the results of his mentorship program. “
“Paul is a fantastic musician and instructor. His personalized instruction focuses on what I want to play and work on. His instruction never feels forced and he is always able to relate what he is teaching to songs and bands. He does an excellent job of not only teaching technique and style, but why it works.
Paul has helped me correct my technique to play significantly more efficient as well as gaining a fuller understanding of the fretboard and the why of the guitar.
Another amazing benefit is the way he has been able to help me develop my own writing to finally be able to play the songs in my head the way I hear them.
Paul’s program has helped bring back my love for playing music and has re-inspired me to challenge and push myself to become a better musician. Highly recommend his program to anyone that wants to improve their playing.”

“The time following music school was a difficult time for me. I was directionless. I was unsatisfied with my playing. I didn’t know how to improve and I didn’t know where I wanted to improve. “
“I met Paul online when I had been posting my playing looking for some sort of inspiration. Paul was one of the only people who bothered commenting on my poorly shot, hard to hear cell phone video. I added Paul right away.
Soon I saw he was offering lessons for mentorship. I already had a college degree in guitar but I didn’t feel like I was living up to it, or that my playing was even deserving of being an educated musician. So I took the plunge.
Paul was the one who pushed me to REALLY challenge myself and actually grow with my instrument. Paul’s lessons transformed my playing but his mentorship transformed my life.
Under Paul I had the confidence to write a record. I had the confidence to post myself playing more often and developed a small following of my own.
Most importantly Paul gave me the self confidence to take control of my life. I am so proud to call Paul my mentor.”

My name is Paul Ozz, your new guitar instructor.
The guitar lesson videos on this site are curated to be the best lessons out there. I sincerely hope you learn a lot through these materials, and that they can help you to reinvigorate your musical passion – whether it’s dormant, or very much alive!
My approach to teaching has always been the same: How do I directly serve my students’ wants and needs?
Let’s face it, we have all had bad teachers. It’s my personal goal to be the one that you remember as a great one.
Teaching from the point of view of pure love of the instrument, I often find myself appreciating a piece of music along with my mentorship program students. That helps to build and solidify my understanding of how to teach people, from any walk of life, in a way that actually works.
My Goal and Promise to you:
With these video lessons it is my goal to help you to ascend to the realms of guitar playing you have only ever dreamed of.
I want to help you learn how to be the best you can be on the instrument that we both love.
The buck stops here.
Learning starts with your commitment to mastering your own process.
Why Temple of Shred?
One of the best parts about Temple of Shred is the fact that when you purchase a lesson, you can access them whenever and from wherever you like with Vimeo!
On top of downloading them, you always have access to the tablature along with the video. The tabs are embedded into the videos for the sake of ease, and especially for those who are on the go in their daily lives.
Temple of Shred provides guitar lessons that aren’t your every-day novice, or beginner, level lessons. They do include the beginners level, but are mostly catered to intermediate and advanced level guitarists.
My guitar lessons are not for the feint of heart! Including the fact that there are lessons for 7 and 8 string guitars as well, I believe that Temple of Shred has one of the most unique and exclusive approaches to teaching the guitar online right now.
Another thing that separates Temple of Shred from the rest is the fact that whenever there is a new version of a video lesson you have already purchased, you can download it for free!
For myself, it’s a matter of establishing to you that I too am learning and curiously exploring the guitar, and it is something I’m happy to show my progress in. And in this case? It’s in your benefit!
I hope that you will find a video lesson that will help you on your journey of mastering the electric guitar!
