Back in 2004, nine year old Cody Sugarman decided he wanted to learn to play guitar. It wasn't easy at first but with the help of a great teacher, Cody improved to the extent that he felt ready to pass on his new found skill to others. Using his kid brother as an amateur cameraman, Cody recorded his first YouTube guitar tutorial in 2007 which has to date recorded over 70,000 hits. He loves playing both electric and acoustic guitar, performs regularly with his High School band and was recently invited to participate in a Flamenco Guitar course in Seville, Spain.

Cody launched the crashchords program in early 2010. He now teaches guitar to a number of local Middle School students and attends High School in Carpinteria, CA.
