How do I subscribe to the podcast using RSS?

First, you need an RSS feed reader. Some good ones to check out include FeedlyBloglines and Netvibes.

Next, you need to add the STG feed to your reader. I have two public RSS feeds you can use to get automatic updates anytime I publish new content:

  1. Click here to subscribe to EVERYTHING via RSS (podcast episodes, blog posts, announcements, etc.)
  2. Click here to subscribe to the PODCAST ONLY via RSS

Why can I only listen to certain podcast episodes for free?

The real benefits of Start Teaching Guitar come with an STG All-Access membership. Every podcast episode I record is produced with STG All-Access members in mind, and most of the episodes are premium members-only content. I do provide a “free edition” of selected episodes to give you a taste of what you can get every single week as an STG All-Access member, and those episodes are supported by advertising. Those are the episodes available to listen to for free on the site. To get access to every episode (and the help you need to take ACTION on what you learn), click here to claim your 14-DAY FREE TRIAL of STG All-Access.
