Portland native Chris Liepe first played piano, which he pursued until discovering his love for the electric guitar in high school. As a fan of bands like Soundgarden, Collective Soul, and U2, he was inspired to start singing, songwriting, and helping others in their musical endeavors.

After moving to Colorado with his family, Chris began gigging, recording, and teaching in a number of music stores and out of his apartment until he decided to pursue music full time. He completed his Bachelors in Music Technology and started working at Sweetwater Productions, a division of Sweetwater Sound and one of the largest, most successful recording studios in the Midwest.

Chris spent nearly 4 years at Sweetwater as a producer, recording engineer, studio musician, and writer. During this time he had the privilege of working with many artists, including Augustana, Landon Pigg, Jars of Clay, and Mercy Me.

Chris Liepe owns and runs his own recording and teaching studio in Colorado. You might even hear his vocals featured in theme music for dozens of daily radio programs and commercial jingles airing around the country.

a bit slow in the beginning when he is just talking, but super clear and a good technique


All of the above!


Always great to know the relationships very helpful


An excellent way to memorize notes and positions.


Brilliant. At last no more counting all the way up from the nut to work out what the note is!! Thank you so much!


Chris presented a reasonable structure to memorizing the notes on the fret board. I'm on board. Thx.


Good instructor


I like chris liepe. He seems to have a good grasp of music and teaches it well


I've been looking for a way to learn the notes on the neck and this is perfect!


Instructor mic level too low


It's a good way to memorize the fretboard and Chris is interesting.


This was eye opening and super easy to understand.

Trying to learn the notes on the fretboard just hasn't worked for me in the past but I now know from Chris' teaching that I can learn this; breaking it down to learn a chunk at a time is extremely helpful too. Very grateful. ???? Thanks Chri
