NICE TO MEET YOU!
Al Joseph has amassed a loyal following allowing him to become one of the worlds most exciting Progressive Metal Guitarists. He began his Professional Career as the lead guitarist after his brief time at world-renown music school Berklee College of Music. His 2013 debut record, "Out In The Open" caught the attention of Jan Cyrka, legendary artist and founder of Jam Track Central. Jam Track Central works with some of the world’s best guitarists and teachers to provide its members with a depth and range of guitar playing knowledge and technical understanding. Al shares the digital stage with highly respected world-renowned players including Guthrie Govan, Alex Hutchings, Andy James, Jack Thammarat, Marco Sfogli, Kiko Loureiro, Jeff Loomis and more. After their very first meeting they invited Al to join the Team.
Al’s quest to give a “voice” to his personal exploration and expression resonates with sounds of Progressive Metal bands like Dream Theater, Frost*, and Symphony X and Nu Metal bands like Creed, Rage Against The Machine, P.O.D, Pillar, Pantera, and Sevendust to the lyrical textures of Jimi Hendrix, George Benson, Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, Andy Timmons, Steve Vai, and Greg Howe, Al formed his style and openly pays homage.

YOU'RE MORE READY THAN YOU KNOW...
Learn how to use the music around you to enhance your technique. Using the SFA's "Cycling Method", you can say goodbye to the conventional use of the metronome and use rhythmic concepts as gateways to your success on the guitar.
Learn how to enhance your knowledge of music theory, chord scales, and modes to traverse the neck, not the other way around. Map out your scales, modes, and chord all over the neck in a way that promote freedom on the fretboard.
Build your modes, chord, and chord progressions on your own. It's all about learning how to effectively analyze the music you already know and love. There's a ton of information out there on theory but this academy will help you hone in on your goals.
