Ultimate Beginner Guitar Masterclass (2021 Update)

Join over 70,000 guitar students who have gone from knowing nothing about the guitar to playing songs everybody loves in WEEKS

Let me ask you this

What is stopping you from being the guitarist you know that you are?

Feeling lost, and have no idea where to start?

Have you been seeing all this information about guitar chord shapes, intervals, triads, major and minor scales, scales variations…

And feel overwhelmed?

Confused?

Discouraged?

“I just don’t think I’m meant to play guitar, I’m not a music person”

“This stuff will take me months, if not YEARS to figure out, I don’t have that kind of time in my hands…”

“All those guitar virtuosos had an innate talent, something that I just don’t have”

“Umm, where do I even begin? I can’t really tell ....”

____________________________________

If that sounds like you….

I get it, we’ve all been there…

Struggling to play guitar for a long time and not getting anywhere

Procrastinating because you can’t make up your mind on what to practice…

Being sick of people simply telling you “All you have to do is practice. Just practice and you’ll get there…”

____________________________________

You might be asking yourself then, what seems to be the CORE PROBLEM here?

What is the 1 THING that is KILLING your progress, possibly more than ANY OTHER reason?

Well, It can all be traced back to a LACK OF PROPER GUIDANCE

Because let’s face it, trying to figure it all out by yourself will take you way longer than if you had someone guiding you STEP-BY-STEP throughout your guitar journey.

You do not have the time to make the same mistakes, that someone else has already made FOR YOU

Think about that…

____________________________________

And Now...

Imagine making a year’s worth of progress in just MONTHS, maybe even WEEKS if you’re motivated enough

Imagine the next time someone asks you to pick up the guitar at a family gathering and NOW you can play songs everyone knows and enjoys with EASE and CONFIDENCE.

Imagine being the star at the party where everyone LOVES YOU for your new ‘musical talent”

And finally, imagine proving to YOURSELF and EVERYONE WHO DOUBTED YOU

That becoming a musician is a SKILL and not an INBORN TALENT

That is where the Beginner Guitar Masterclass comes into play!

After joining this course, you won't need to imagine anymore.

I take you STEP-BY-STEP and NOTE-BY-NOTE through all the elements needed to make this a reality in a very short amount of time!!!

Taking you from ZERO to HERO!

Learn from someone who has already been through the rigorous journey

Someone who has already made all the mistakes and has figured out the best and worst practices..

Someone who will help you avoid ALL THOSE MISTAKES to help you pick up the guitar

FASTER than you ever thought possible.

____________________________________

My name is Henry Olsen and I've been teaching guitar professionally for 5 years.

I have 14 published Udemy courses and an average rating of 4.6!

For this course, I took all of my experience and feedback from thousands of students just like you and packed the best of the best into ONE 12 hour masterclass.

Now you'll have the benefit of a tested and retested learning method! Aside from having a FAST and EASY progress, you'll have a lot of FUN during the process :-)

Every song lesson comes with a play-along feature, so after you're done learning the song, I play it with you at a slow and comfortable tempo, and you'll always have an easy time putting it into practical use.

The course also comes with a 42-page picture chord book, so you'll have an easy time following along with all the lessons.

This method has WORKED for THOUSANDS of students and I KNOW that it will also work for you!

____________________________________

Here’s what some of my students have to say...

“I never went that far in any other course. I am really starting from zero. The lessons are very well explained and I am still excited about learning guitar…” - Alessandro Silveira

“The course thus far has been an eye-opener. I have been doing guitar lessons at a music school for 18 months and I was not made aware of anchoring certain fingers in specific chords, for example, A minor and C. I am so pleased with my progress and what I have achieved.” - Basil Rhodes

“Henry is such a sweet and fantastic teacher. He absolutely UNDERSTANDS WHAT THE BEGINNERS NEED. I am happy that he is my first guitar teacher.” - Atul Mishra

“This course is seriously blowing my mind as I THOUGHT I COULDN’T LEARN GUITAR ONLINE. Really hats off to the instructor for this amazing gift.” - Sakib Chowdhury

“I took private guitar lessons for about a year, but I feel like I've progressed further in the first 10-15 lessons of this online course over the course of a couple of weeks than I did with my in-person teacher. Henry does a really good job of helping beginners "feel" their way around a song so that they can apply it to other songs on their own, without feeling "robotic." The pace of the course is perfect and I finish each lesson wanting to practice and apply what I've learned. In addition, I appreciate the number of lessons he's dedicated to strumming, as that is an area I've really struggled in. Overall, a really good course, thanks!” - Jane

Acoustic Guitar Basics

Students: 27987, Price:  Free

This Free course will get you playing the acoustic guitar in no time.

I will show you:

  • how to hold the guitar
  • exactly where to place your fingers to play the basic guitar chords
  • how to read chord diagrams
  • how to play chords of G, D, C, Em, Am, Cadd9
  • basic strumming patterns
  • how to tune the guitar
  • how to use a capo

You will learn all the basics needed to get you started, along with strumming patterns that will have you playing songs in a very short period of time. During the videos any chords that are being used will appear onscreen and there are video inlays to give you a closer look at what my left-hand fingers are doing. A visual representation of the strumming patterns will also be shown onscreen where necessary.

The strumming patterns and chord diagrams are included as supplemental materials so they can be downloaded and studied separately from the videos.

The course should take approx. 5 weeks to complete if you are an absolute beginner with no previous experience. Also if you've always wanted to play guitar or tried to learn guitar before but found changing chords or strumming was difficult then this is the course for you.

Acoustic Guitar For Beginners

If you've always wanted to learn how to play acoustic guitar - or even started once or twice in the past only to put it down in frustration - this series of beginner acoustic guitar lessons is likely the perfect approach for you. Acoustic Guitar for Beginners is a jump-start method designed to get you up and strumming quickly without having to work through tedious theory, scales and exercises. In fact, you'll be strumming chords and playing a few songs in your very first week of working with the course.

Acoustic Guitar for Beginners is tailored specifically for adults who don't have the time or desire for formal training. To get you on the fast track, we've deliberately steered clear of music theory, reading notation, exercises and scales (there's plenty of time for all that good stuff later). Instead, you'll dig in immediately learning how to play chords, strums and how to work with song books and lyric sheets.

Most guitarists suck at strumming. Yes, they are awful.

Why? Bad teachers, bad learning habits and bad information. They are not taught the proper ways to strum, they lack technique, they don`t understand rhythm and worst of all they don`t know that this is holding them back. All this all leads to a LOT of wasted years with the guitar and a lack of confidence when they are playing and strumming it.

Using our video lessons, supplementary guide and killer bonuses you can now learn how to strum with complete confidence and gain an insider understands of rhythm and all in a short space of time.

You will be able to play the most common strum patterns in popular music which means along with a few chords you will be able to learn, play and impress others with 10,000`s of classic songs as well as write your own with ease.

Save hundreds of hours trying to work strum patterns out for yourself

Imagine being able to listen to a song, either find or workout the chords, hear the strum pattern and realize that you already know how to play this strum pattern, and then learn it in minutes just by listening to it.

Well, now you can, because in this course that`s what I take you through.

Most songs use just a select few (8 in fact) strumming patterns, a bunch of simple chords (which you are taught in this course)

Learn why most people's strumming sound dead (and what to do instead)

Well, I`ll tell you, apart from the lack of technique, dynamics, expression, subtlety and rhythm, which you will master in this course, it`s their inability to play with feel.

One key element every guitarist from George Harrison to Kurt Cobain, from Jimi Hendrix to Ed Sheeran has is a great sense of feel.

Most mere mortals don`t get past level 1 here, but I will teach you a simple little trick that can help add a sophisticated sense of feel and soul into ANY strum pattern you will ever learn.

Time is precious, and the guitar takes many, many years to truly master. Perfect this one fundamental element today – the crucial element of strumming and you can kick start your guitar playing to the next level allowing you to go on and be the guitar guru you desire to be.

"The fretting hand is the brain, the strumming hand is the soul."

So much of our passion as guitarists come from the strumming hand.

Listen to the like of Damien Rice and Ed Sheeran to hear what I mean. The fretting hand doesn`t do a lot apart from the basic most of the time.

With these guys, the strumming hand takes these competent sounding basics and turbo charges them into a powerhouse of guitar wizardry - the sound of a soulful, heartened guitar player who is bearing is his soul for the world to hear.

You can just feel the passion, sorrow, joy and love oozing out of these guitarists hands.

You will learn how to apply this and so much more.

If you were guaranteed to save hundreds of wasted hours searching YouTube, discovering these techniques for yourself or paying $1000`s dollar in lessons, what that be worth to you?

I have vast knowledge of teaching the guitar, and I guarantee once you have mastered these materials, you will have far more confidence performing in front of friends, family members, college parties, at gigs, open mic night and even jam sessions.

You will be able to write songs far more ease, and you will impress yourself and others with your strumming skills!

Each video is short, in-depth and packed full of real, practical information.

Join the course today to get all these benefits, becoming a strumming master and truly fall in love with the guitar.

Acoustic Guitar System | Melodic Guitar Lessons for Beginner

ACOUSTIC GUITAR SYSTEM is a guitar course for beginners who keep asking the same questions:

"How can I go from playing simple basic chords to beautiful sounding melodies in a few weeks."

"what about putting music theory into practice so that I can finally come up with my musical ideas."

Acoustic Guitar System is an online course that will show you how to play guitar in the most creative, musical, and practical way.

In this guitar course, I am going to show you how to transform your guitar playing and become a creative guitar player.

We will cover things such as:

"Fingerstyle technique and how to pluck the strings to achieve the perfect tone, dynamics, and control. We will play basic melodies, chords, arpeggios, and musical ideas that will shape your fingerpicking technique."

"Practical music theory and how to put into practice basic concepts such as intervals, major and minor chords, extended chords, major and minor scales, and more."

"Beautiful chords on the guitar and how to use fingerstyle guitar to spice things up and create chord progressions that are simple yet interesting. We will cover major and minor chords as well as major 7th, minor 7th and dominant 7th chords as well as add9 and more."

Scales and melodies on guitar and how to write a beautiful melody by learning the notes of the scale and then wisely write combine chords and single notes.

Basic percussive technique on the acoustic guitar such as thumb slap and thumb slap and strum.

This guitar course is perfect for any guitar player who wants to learn more about playing guitar and truly understand how to put together chords and melody.

Three things are stopping you from becoming the guitar player you want.

Number 1: You are stuck in a guitar rot. It could be because you play the same chords and songs or because you don't know how to progress. Reaching a plateau is one of the main reasons why guitar players stop playing guitar.

Number 2: You are practicing the wrong things. When I talk to beginners, I hear this a lot, "I am playing Pentatonic scales because someone told me this is the best way to start." There isn't such a thing as the best way. There is your way and what you need. Don't waste time practicing guitar styles that don't represent you. You want to be a blues player, learn blues. A classical player, learn classical guitar. 

Number 3: You try to play too many things. Places like YouTube drive you crazy, and you always end up clicking on a ton of guitar lessons instead of practicing. Too many choices can slow you down big time.

The good news is, it is easy to get your motivation back if you follow a structured program.

If you want to learn how to play basic chords, extended chords, and you want to finally learn how to play simple scales and melodies using fingerstyle guitar, you should check this course. We will also learn practical music theory, simple percussive technique, and more. 

Each guitar lesson comes with a dedicated Pdf that you can download and print.

IS THIS COURSE FOR BEGINNERS?

As a guitar teacher, I do my best to make things as simple as possible. This course doesn't show you how to hold the guitar or how to play your very first chords.

However, just because it doesn't show you that it doesn't mean that it is not for beginners.

There are a lot of different levels within the beginner's phase. Some beginners can pick up things much faster than others so they could, for example, finish this course quickly.

Some beginners learn slowly, and they need a more step-by-step and detailed program.

I did my best to keep things very simple. However, if you never played guitar before, THIS COURSE IS NOT FOR YOU.

It's impossible to create a beginner course that fits everyone. I am aware of that!

I would consider this course to be great for fingerstyle beginners. It's for students that already played guitar for a while and know the basic chords and simple strumming who want to learn more about fingerstyle, practical music theory, scales, and chords.

PLEASE! Make sure you preview some of the lessons inside Acoustic Guitar System.

Take advantage of the 30 days money back!

My goal is to teach you how to play guitar creatively. I did my best to organize the guitar lessons step by step, but I am always open to feedback so, please, if you have questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with new ideas or suggestions.

Enough talking!

Grab your guitar, and let's get started.

ACOUSTIC GUITAR REDEFINED is a course for any guitar player who wants to learn how to play chords, melody, and rhythm creatively and practically.

If you are tired of playing the same static, boring chords over and over and you want to find a way to make your acoustic guitar sound more interesting without necessarily having to learn crazy stuff, then this program is definitely for you.

AS A GUITAR TEACHER, I GET THIS QUESTION A LOT: "Hey Marco, I have been playing guitar for a while, but I am stuck in a guitar rot. I want to learn a different way of playing chords and melodies to get my motivation back. What should I do and which guitar lessons should I follow?"

If this is your situation, you can do three things:

Number 1: You can go on social media and try to figure things out yourself. Places such as YouTube are great, but it can be overwhelming to navigate through thousands of videos for some people. If you want to have access to a vast amount of guitar lessons at zero cost, social media is excellent. If you want a structured program, you should avoid this step.

Number 2: Private teachers still represent the best way to learn guitar. You could get assessed by a professional guitar teacher who will fix bad habits, come up with a structured program, and follow you step by step. However, private tutors can be quite expensive. You will also have to deal with location and availability. If you don't have much time available, this option doesn't work.

Number 3: You could find an excellent online guitar course that fits your music style.  A good online guitar course is perfect if you don't have much time available and want to practice from home. Most of the time, online guitar lessons are way cheaper than private lessons. The only downside is that you don't have support, and most of your questions will be unanswered. Also, some courses can be quite slow to follow.

With Acoustic Guitar Redefined, I did my best to put together a practical acoustic guitar course that will teach you how to spice things up in your playing without "talking" too much.

In each module, you will learn how to practice, play, and then transform simple chord progressions.

There are three levels for each module: The Basic level, in which I will show you how to play the chords using the fingerpicking technique. The Rhythmic level, where we will then add the percussive technique. And the Melodic level, where we will be learning a simple yet beautiful melody over the chords.

This program is perfect for intermediate guitar players who want to learn more about chords, rhythm, and melodies and finally play creative and exciting guitar parts.

Make sure you preview some of the guitar lessons if you want to know more about my teaching style and forget to take advantage of the 30 days money back guaranteed.

  • Play faster and more easily without fatigue

After learning these 51 rhythms and the techniques behind them, you'll be able to tackle any rhythm you run into, or want to create, in the future! 

As you may or may not know, Udemy has a 30-day, full satisfaction or your money back guarantee, and my course is absolutely included in that.  I have no doubt at all that you'll gain a ton from the course.  It's all about getting the foundations of playing down first, and that's what I focus on throughout.

Advanced Acoustic Guitar Fingerpicking

Advanced Guitar Fingerpicking

Hi - my name is Patrick and welcome to my course - guitar fingerpicking in 30 days. I have being fingerpicking guitar for 20 years and I have taught dozens of students to go from never having picked up a guitar before to being really accomplished players. 

I notice that when many of my students learn fingerpicking and become competent, they become very musical in a short space of time. The acoustic guitar and modern acoustic fingerpicking style take the most incredible instrument and facilitate musicians to get incredible sounds from a small piece of wood with strings on it. Students do things that blow me away.

Some of the building blocks to becoming a modern acoustic fingerstyle musician with your own voice and your own sound are identified here and hopefully will help you to push through the common boundaries of having set chords, set patterns, set riffs and years of formed habits. It's time to really become inspired again. I'm absolutely confident that this will be your experience.

There are several main sections in this course

  1. Advanced Rhythm and Polyrhythms

  2. A deep dive into a classic Windy & Warm popularised by Chet Atkins and the techniques that drive the song

  3. A deep dive into a classic Deep River Blues by Doc Watson and the techniques that drive the song

  4. Advanced Techniques

    1. Harmonizing scales

    2. Adding percussive elements

    3. Using alternate tunings

    4. Blending everything we have learned

I'm sure there will be plenty to challenge you in this course.

At the end of my course, students will be able to...

  • play fingerpicking style using 3/2 polyrhythms

  • harmonize scales and incorporate wide interval playing into your fingerstyle playing

  • use a variety of bass patterns within a single song

  • add percussive elements to your repertoire

  • learn awesome sounding version of classics like Deep River Blues, Windy & Warm and Lean On Me

  • understand the thought process for making your acoustic sound like the orchestra it is

What materials will come with this course?

Each lesson has a HD video with three camera angles (full, left hand and right hand) so that you can zone in and see what each hand is doing. Each lesson also comes with a downloadable PDF and the relevant music tablature for each lesson. 

Who should take this course?

This course is ideal for guitarists who are at an intermediate level in the sense that they know the basic chords, they can change chords without too much trouble and they are able to use their fingers and thumbs to pick the guitar a little bit. You don’t need to know anything about music theory as I will explain the theory that we use.

  • If you feel like you are not really too comfortable playing chords - try my Zero to Guitar Fingerpicker in 30 days course.

  • If you feel like you are a bit beyond that, try my Intermediate Fingerpicking course.

  • If you have picked your guitar before using fingerstyle methods, but it's all just a bit old and a bit boring then you're in the right place!

Who should not?

If you're not comfortable to play the basic chords on guitar and change effortlessly between them, I'd suggest the beginner or intermediate course above.

What will students need before starting the course?

Students will need to have a guitar. 

If you want to give this course a try, remember that Udemy backs your purchase with a 30 day full refund option on all courses on Udemy - including this one. So you can always give it a go with absolutely no risk and get picking within the first few lessons or get your money back. This course is the best way to get musical within the first days, like I promised you above.

Enroll now to feel the joy of fingerpicking on your guitar!

Best of luck and I'll see you in the classroom..

Acoustic Blues Guitar lessons - learn acoustic  blues guitar from a top Truefire guitar instructor (Jim Bruce was voted N°2 Internet Guitar Instructor by Truefire in 2013).
 
From Texas To The Delta is a mega-pack of acoustic blues guitar lessons covering all aspects of fingerpicking blues guitar, hence the name.   From the Mississippi Delta sounds of Robert Johnson to the happy complex ragtime guitar picking style of Blind Blake, all styles are covered in great detail.

In addition to the legendary blues men, such as Lightnin Hopkins, Big Bill Broonzy and Robert Johnson, this course explores some of the amazing guitar techniques of guys who are not exactly household names, but nevertheless had an enormous impact on blues guitar development and modern music in general. 

Blues guitar men such as Scrapper Blackwell, Pink Anderson and Floyd Council are unknown names, unless you are a blues fan! Most people know that Pink Floyd took their group name from the latter two blues men, but very few people have heard their music.

In presenting these 39 video guitar lessons from the major acoustic blues artists of the 20s and 30, the aim is provide a good grounding in all acoustic blues guitar finger picking techniques.

Artists Covered:

  • Lightnin' Hopkins

  • Scrapper Blackwell

  • Blind Boy Fuller

  • Pink Anderson

  • Blind Blake

  • Robert Johnson

  • Scrapper Blackwell

  • Willie Walker

  • Brownie McGhee

  • Lightnin Hopkins

  • Leroy Carr

  • Floyd Council

  • Mance Lipscomb

  • Mississippi John Hurt

  • Willie Walker

  • Blind Wille McTell

Depending on the key used, and also the musical style, these guitar lessons are suitable for intermediate to advanced players. For example, the alternating bass patterns used in ragtime guitar are harder to learn than the monotonic bass techniques associated with the Delta.

Welcome to Beginner Lead Blues Guitar Lessons! As a blues guitarist for over 20 years and instructor for nearly as long, the one thing I hear from aspiring players most often is..."I know my scales and technique but, how do I put it all together?!" I also encounter many players that understand improvising over the 12 Bar Blues form but, only know a few Minor Pentatonic scales. To make things worse, no one ever taught them how to effectively develop techniques like bending, hammer-ons, pull-offs, vibrato and more. These techniques combined with scale playing is a HUGE part of the improvising process. However, having a guide to show you how to put it all together really makes the difference. That's why I created Beginner Blues Lead Guitar!

In Beginner Blues Lead Guitar you can be just that...a beginner! There's no reason to be intimidated here as I will take you from the ground level of playing lead guitar to competently creating your own blues solos. What's the ground level you might ask? Well, I'll not only teach you the nuts and bolts of scales and technique, I'll teach you the how and why too! Some beginners may not even know what "improvising" or playing "lead" guitar is. Not to worry! I'll give full background on what improvising on guitar is and how you can do it on your own!

I'll teach you over 25 Blues Solos in 4 different keys. The beauty of these solos is that they focus on each scale pattern and are at slow tempos so that you can build confidence while traversing through each one! 

I will also spend a lot of time on technique. Hammer-ons, Pull-offs, sliding, bending, vibrato, and double stops are all covered. I even constructed solos around each one of these techniques so that they work perfectly in the Minor Pentatonic scale patterns.

Beginning Blues guitarists are always on the hunt for great tone and I've added an extensive Gear section at the end of the course to give you pointers on how to craft the Blues Lead tone you're after. I'll show you several guitars, pedals and amp settings to help aid you in tonequest! 

Of course all assets like TABs, PDFs, and Backing tracks are included and, you can comment and ask questions in the Udemy interface as well.

Here’s what you’ll get inside this comprehensive intermediate blues course:

  1. 5 hours on-demand video


  2.

This Acoustic Learning Path core course is presented by 3 top TrueFire educators: Corey Congilio, Brooks Robertson, and David Hamburger.

They’ll guide your development of the essential skills and get up and running quickly -- no reading music, no boring exercises, no tedious theory to struggle through. In fact, you’ll play your way through the entire course.

You’ll start off the course learning a classic rhythm pattern to get you in the groove. You’ll also learn a progression that’s used in thousands of songs. Fingerstyle techniques are very important skills to develop and you’ll learn a versatile Fingerstyle pattern that you can use in any song. Acoustic guitarists use a variety of techniques to express musical ideas, and you’ll tackle some of the essentials here. You’ll also learn some acoustic blues, a 12 bar progression, and wrap the course up with more new chords and essential rhythm patterns.

The educators demonstrate all of the key examples over jam tracks (where and when applicable) to simulate a real-world application, in a musical context. All of the key examples are also tabbed and notated for your practice, reference and study purposes.

You’ll also get Guitar Pro files so that you can play, loop or slow down the tab and notation as you work through the lessons. Plus, you’ll have all of the available jam tracks to work with on your own.

Students: 210, Price:  Paid

This follow-on course will improve your guitar playing.

I will show you:

  • how to read TAB
  • exactly where to place your fingers to play finger-style guitar
  • how to decide what rhythm to use in a song
  • how to play chords of A, A7, A7sus4, B7, D7, Dsus2, Dsus4, E7, Em7, F, Fmajor7, G6
  • more complex strumming patterns
  • how to pick individual notes using a plectrum
  • how to use a capo
  • techniques hammer-ons and pull-offs

The videos follow a carefully designed order to help you improve quickly. The course is divided into sections, the first dealing with improving your rhythm by introducing more complex strumming patterns using various songs while also introducing new chords. The next section gets you started reading TAB and learning the basics of finger-style guitar. And the final section takes a look at some more advanced techniques such as hammer-ons and pull-offs.

During the videos any chords that are being used will appear onscreen and there are video inlays to give you a closer look at what my left-hand fingers are doing. For lessons on finger-style and picking there are also video inlays that will show you a close-up of the right hand. A visual representation of the strumming patterns and for finger-style songs TAB will also be shown onscreen where necessary.

The strumming patterns and chord sequences are included as supplemental materials so they can be downloaded and studied separately from the videos.

The course should take approx. 10-15weeks to complete but that will depend on the amount of time you are able to dedicate to practicing the guitar. If you can only practice for an hour at the weekend it could take considerably longer than if you can practice on a more regular basis.

To put the cost into perspective, a 10 week group class in the school where I teach would cost approx. $210 and it would be unlikely to cover half the amount of material featured in this course.

Are you inspired to pick up the guitar, but can't find the right lessons or structure?

Have you tried some basics but struggle to figure out where to go next?

This course is for you! Welcome to The Acoustic Guitar Essentials - Lessons for Beginners.

The guitar is an expressive and versatile instrument that has led popular music for 100 years - from jazz to blues to rock n roll to singer songwriter - the list goes on. I’ve been playing live and in the studio for over 15 years and I still get inspired every time I pick it up. I want you to feel the same way.

Many beginner guitarists hit a wall after a short time of learning, either because of learning out of context - static scales, metronomes, isolated chord patterns - or they learn a handful of popular songs or riffs, and get stuck there after the final tutorial. I know, because it happened to me too.

Don’t let this be you!

My goal is to give you the kickstart that will give you a foundation that you can build upon under your own steam, long after you've finished watching the videos.

  • We will use Point of View camera angles so you see the videos from the same perspective as you see your guitar.

  • I will teach you not only the basics of chords, theory and melodic playing, but I will also guide you with lots of tips and tricks to playing with dynamics and control, to make your playing more musical from the beginning.

  • The Band in a Box are custom written tracks that help you learn - you'll get the full recording as well as the rhythm track only to practice to - playing with a beat no matter how simple will improve your playing and prepare you for playing with other musicians. And more fun than a metronome.

At the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Master techniques for picking and strumming.

  • Play melodies and chords smoothly via custom written tunes.

  • Understand chord  shapes, and theory fundamentals.

  • Know your way around the fretboard without feeling lost.

  • Have a great head start with dynamics and control to prepare you for the future.

And so much more! Remember. Every string has a story to tell. So grab your guitar and join me to start learning today!

See you in class!

Content and Overview

I designed this program to help you begin your musical journey on the guitar in the most efficient and fun way. This program is suitable for anyone who has a desire to play and has a working guitar. There are over 2.5 hours of video lessons and practice videos.

The layout of the course uses a simple format:

-1 lesson video that explains a new concept/technique,

-1 practice video that has voice overs and graphics to help you play along with the teacher on the screen in "real time".

There are twelve sets of lessons and practice videos that help you learn melody, rhythm, harmony, and improvising. This program also contains a "Jam Room" with a virtual band that you can play along with at different speeds. As an added bonus there are also five music theory made easy animated videos that explain the basic building blocks of music.

At the end of this course you will have the confidence to play the guitar both on your own and with others in different musical situations.
