Complete Guide to Beginner Guitar

What it is

This course is designed for the beginner guitarist who has either just picked up the instrument for the first time, or who has been trying to learn and hit a frustrating road block. It is a course that provides a solid foundation for playing guitar in any style. If your interest lies in blues, folk, classical, jazz, or any of the other styles of guitar you will find a solid start in this course.

Who is it for?

Specifically created for the absolute beginner, this course is for adult beginner guitarists who are studying without a teacher. It is highly structured and has multiple goals and checkpoints throughout the course, so if you have found yourself frustrated with a lack of progress this course is for you.

What the students say:

Love the duet. Admittedly, the first two times I was so distracted by your cool part that I repeatedly flubbed my own. Finally I just listened to your part while *mentally* playing mine — and that did the trick for me. Once we were fully in sync, I recorded the piece and beamed with unabashed pride at the music coming out of my little Bose wireless speaker. Dude, we sound great!

Seriously, I live in a small town and really relish the opportunity to play with another guitarist, even a virtual one. Hope you will keep the duets coming.
