Matt Cowe – fingerstyle guitar and online guitar teaching.

Matt Cowe, experienced guitarist and guitar teacher based in Ulverston in Cumbria, offering online guitar tuition.

Here you will find information about me and links to my Bandcamp site where you can find backing tracks to my Chet Atkins videos for sale.  At present during the pandemic the fab 60’s instrumental band, The Spiratones, is on hiatus as is the ‘Matt Cowe Plays Chet Atkins’ band, hopefully we’ll be back soon. 

Below, check out my Chet Atkins play-along backing tracks on Bandcamp or listen to The Spiratones on Spotify.  Go to my YouTube channel for my Chet Atkins videos or read about my history and work.

If you want to get in touch please leave a reply on the contact page.  

And of course I offer one to one guitar tuition over the internet with Skype, FaceTime, Facebook or Zoom. Tuition in all styles, including rock, blues, folk, classical and country with a specialisation in the style of the great Chet Atkins.
