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.

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

Most beginners think that you need to know thousands of chords to play thousands of songs. NOT SO! You really only need to know a handful of chords and a few strumming patterns to play thousands of rock, folks, blues and pop songs.

The reason guitar is the most popular instrument on the planet is because it's the quickest and easiest instrument to learn how to play. You do NOT need to read music. You do NOT need to learn music theory. You do NOT need to struggle through exercises, or practice scales, or learn how to play Mary Had A Little Lamb.

Fact is that thousands of popular songs can be played with 8 simple chords or less. Learn just the A chord, D chord and E chord and you'll be able to play hundreds of blues, folk, pop and rock songs. Why is this so? Because rock, pop, folk and blues songwriters all use the same handful of chords - it's their melodies and arrangements that make their songs distinctive, NOT the chords they are using in the song.

So, if you learn that handful of chords, and learn those few strumming patterns, along with the basics of holding and tuning a guitar, then you too will be able to play thousands of songs. And that's the simple truth.

World renowned guitar educator Ravi has taught thousands of people to play their favorite songs on guitar with his breakthrough 21-day course. The "trick" behind this course is really no trick at all; over the 21 days you'll learn how to hold and tune the guitar, how to play eight simple chords, how to strum, and how to keep a beat.

No gimmicks. No "magic" formula. No nonsense.

You will need to set 20 minutes a day aside for your practice sessions. No more and no less. And you are asked to do this for 21 days straight. Yes, you can skip a day or two but the daily repetition and practice regiment is the key to your success.

Ravi has also included additional lessons for you to work with beyond the 21 days. You'll learn more open position chords, the moveable barre chord system (worth the price of admission alone!), how to read chord charts, and how to easily and quickly learn songs from sheet music, song books and lyric sheets that you download from the internet.

Ravi will step you through the course and each of your practice sessions on the video lessons. Follow the course for those 21 days and beyond and we guarantee that you'll be prepared to start playing and building your own repertoire of favorite songs to accompany yourself or play in a band setting.

No, you will not be an Eric Clapton in 21 days and we wouldn't suggest you book your first gig on the 22nd day BUT you will be a guitar player and you will be well equipped to learn ALL of your favorite songs.

If you've always wanted to learn to play guitar so that you can strum along and sing your favorite songs, Learn Guitar in 21 Days is likely the answer you've been seeking. Grab your guitar, boot up Ravi's first lesson and let's start making music right away!

NOTE! We get asked all the time why a guitar educational company with so many advanced courses would offer such a simple solution to learning guitar without having to learn how to read music, learn theory or work through a more "formal" learning methodology. The answer is really simple; you never stop learning music but you do have to start. If your introduction to music is boring, tedious and generally a struggle, you'll likely pack the guitar up in its case and stick it in the closet. If it's fun, engaging and you can prove to yourself that you can really do it, then you'll spend a lifetime enjoying and learning guitar. Hopefully, TrueFire and our massive library of instruction will enhance that lifetime of enjoyment.

- How would it feel like - to know that you can FLUENTLY play all the songs that you were struggling with for a long time?

- To know that you can execute (without even paying attention to it) any chord transition that you used to struggle with?

Sounds good, right?

Welcome! This is what you've been looking for. By the end of this course - you will be able to easily execute the chord changes between all the basic chords - in a smooth and lightning-fast way. Without even looking. The result: You will be playing songs effortlessly.

"Playing fast at campfires was stressful for me. That changed now. The exact course I was missing for years! Even fingerpicking was easier than strumming chords."  Markus Hees (Google Translate from German)

★★★★★
"The instructions are clear and informative and presented in an entertaining way. There are lots of examples of songs that you can play." Ivan Carter

★★★★★

"Very simple and straightforward concepts that just work! Changing chord never felt so easy. Great bonus pdf’s as well." Barak Yaari

★★★★★

"When I first saw this course I really hoped that it would be the information that I needed to make me sit down and work on my chord changes and strumming. I am delighted to say that it really is!! I am already seeing a big difference in my playing. If you are unhappy with the speed and accuracy of your chord changes, your guitar and your audience will love you!" Amanda Yates

★★★★★

"All of a sudden, my fingers know where to go and hey presto I can finger the chord and make chord transitions so much easier." Malcolm Casswell

★★★★★

This mini-course will teach you exactly how to overcome (and speed through!) the obstacle of changing chords fast - which is the #1 obstacle that is causing 90% of the beginner guitarists to quit within a few weeks/months.​ 

By enrolling and putting in the little work that you'll learn about - I can assure you that you WON'T be one of the quitters.

Changing chords is not gonna be a challenge for you anymore - and instead you are going to focus simply on playing the songs fluently, and even singing along if you wish.

You will achieve that through practicing (for a couple of minutes a day) a small bunch of simple, fun, yet extremely powerful exercises - which will help you DRILL all the chord changes deep into your muscle memory.

You are going to feel the results today, and you are going to be able to cut through months of slow improvement in just days-couple of weeks, and skip to the fun parts of playing the guitar.

By doing the exercises - you will be able to take your guitar playing from the initial, hard stage, where it feels like constant "hard work" - where each chord change is a hassle - and you have to look down and slowly move your fingers one by one...

Into the stage where it's just "pure, expressive fun", and you can simply play all of your favorite songs without even thinking about it, without any efforts, and without these "flow-killing" stops between the chords.

Guitar is simple - by knowing these basic chords and how to switch between them at ease + a couple of strumming patterns (which I will teach you in the course as well) = you will be able to play literally tens of thousands of songs.

So join me inside and start having FUN with your favorite songs, instead of struggling with changing chords.

    How Brownie McGhee and Big Bill Broonzy Used Swing Blues Guitar Chords

    Guitar lessons cover many genres inside this musical form of the blues. Blues guitar developed from the African-American community & can be sad in the Delta style from the deep South, or happy in the Piedmont ragtime guitar style of playing which is evident in all forms of modern jazz, rhythm & blues. Between the two there are a group of acoustic blues guitar players who used many standard chord progressions to play with a definite swing, sill using blues notes, but a step up from the standard twelve bar blues.

    Learn Acoustic Blues Guitar In The Old Style

    Big Bill Broonzy and Brownie McGhee are two great examples of blues men who excelled at adapting traditional blues verses, using shuffles, walking basses and all the usual tricks but giving it that certain 'groove'; almost like rock and roll. The five lessons in this course take a look at just one of McGhee's songs - Livin With The Blues, and four of Broonzy's.

    Guitar Lessons - Learning Blues The Right Way

    If you can play one of Brownie's acoustic blues songs, you can just about play them all! Both men were country blues singers originally, further developing what was basically the music of Africa evolving through field hollers and spirituals, particularly after the ending of slavery. Their swinging style of blues became a firm favorite in juke joints, together with Delta blues and the appealing Piedmont (ragtime blues.)

    What You Will Learn in these acoustic guitar lessons:

    1. How to finger pick acoustic blues guitar in the distinctive swing style.
    2. Palm damping techniques to ensure that the sound is 'tight'!
    3. The chord structure of swing blues in the keys of E, A and C
    4. How to reproduce that elusive 'old blues guitar' feeling.

    Broonzy's style was much broader and we take a look at several of his songs in some detail.

    Both men use a fingerpicking style called 'monotonic bass', which means that the thumb strikes just one bass guitar string every beat, instead of alternating between two or three strings.

    It's less complicated than alternating bass fingerstyle blues, but that's not to say the guitar sound produced isn't as rich or musical. Both men were very inventive in their treatment of the blues, and the bass action helped drive the music forward in a very definite and unique way.

    Each lesson is between 20 mins and 30 mins long and provides everything you need to play the songs presented, including slow close up demos of both hands, tips on singing and printable guitar tab files. Acoustic blues lessons in the swing style just got easy - learn blues guitar now!

    If you've always wanted to learn how to play electric blues guitar - or even started once or twice in the past only to put it down in frustration - this series of beginner blues guitar lessons is likely the perfect approach for you. Blues 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 playing your first batch of cool blues moves in your very first week of working with the course.

    Blues 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 blues chords, strums, keeping time and build a vocabulary of bluesy licks.

Hamburger has appeared at Merle Fest and countless other festivals and has performed with Joan Baez, Duke Robillard, and many others.

    Hamburger starts from scratch, teaching you how to tune, how to hold the pick and how to play your first bluesy notes. David explains every step and breaks each example down so you know exactly what to play and how to play it. He shows you how to strum with downstrokes and upstrokes, how to pick in time and how to get your chords to sound clean, while teaching you a variety of chord progressions and blues-based single-note riffs. On-screen chord diagrams and beat counters help you to stay on track, and jam tracks for each lesson make practicing fun - just play along with David and the practice rhythm tracks. By the end of the course you'll be learn how to play rhythm and lead blues guitar parts for the Chicago shuffle, Texas shuffle, eight-bar blues, shuffle boogie and even a little 50s R&B.

    Most players that want to play blues understand that you'll need to know many types of chord shapes. They also get confused as to when to incorporate 9th chords and riff based rhythms. I cover all of that in this course with the same type of thorough explanation you may have seen in Beginning Blues Rhythm Guitar!

    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.

    In this series of lessons, taught by top UK session guitarist, Bobby Harrison, we’re going to be focusing on soloing over a slow blues.

    You’ve probably heard this kind of playing if you’re familiar with songs such as "Red House","Texas Flood", "How Blue Can You Get", "Be Careful With A Fool", "The Sky Is Crying”, “Five Long Years”…the list goes on.

    Slow blues is an extremely expressive form of blues, since it allows for a lot of freedom in terms of phrasing and dynamics.

    Since the blues is an improvisational form of music, it’s harder to teach than some other styles. For generations, blues musicians have picked up licks and soloing ideas from other players, so feel free to use the ideas presented here in your own solos. Eventually, like the generations of blues guitarists before you, you’ll make them your own.

    As Bobby mentioned in Blues Guitar Lessons - Volume 1, in order to play blues, you need to be able to hear blues and in order to hear it, you need to listen to a lot of it. The ingredients are pretty straight forward in terms of the scales and chords used, but there’s so much more to this form of music in terms of feel, taste, phrasing and expression.

    Again, put together a play list of your favourite blues songs and listen to it as often as you can to really internalise the style.

    An essential study to help take your blues playing to new heights!

    This 14-part series of lessons, taught by top UK session guitarist, Bobby Harrison, is the third instalment of our Blues Guitar series. We’ve learned how to solo over both a shuffle groove and a slow blues progression, but now it’s time to turn our attention to minor blues playing.

    The focus here is how to solo over minor or minor 7th chords, as opposed to the dominant 7th progressions we’ve grown accustomed to. There are several differences in both mood and note choice, especially since we no longer have the luxury of mixing both the major and minor pentatonic scales; and as for our old friend, the major third, avoid that fella like the plague when soloing over a minor blues progression!

    We will learn a mean 36-bar solo, containing countless blues licks that you can incorporate into your own playing, as well as a cool, ZZ Top inspired minor blues rhythm guitar part. Bobby also shows us scale, arpeggio and chord-tone ideas for soloing over a minor blues progression.

         In this course you will learn all the basic techniques for playing lead guitar in the traditional blues style - as heard on the recordings from the 1950s and 1960s.  Lessons cover all the most important concepts and skills needed to play solos, fills, introductions, and end tags.  The course includes a section with lessons on the the specific techniques commonly used in traditional blues guitar - including string bends, double stops, vibrato, palm muting, slides, hammering on and pulling off the strings.  There is also a section to teach you how to play in every position on different parts of the guitar neck.   

        To help you learn the ideas taught in the first part of the course, there is a special section with more than 50 examples of classic blues licks from the masters of traditional electric blues guitar - a veritable "Lick Encyclopedia" to get you started playing this kind of music.    This section features short lessons demonstrating and explaining specific examples of licks by Freddy King, Pee Wee Crayton, T-Bone Walker, Buddy Guy, Jimmy Rogers, Little Milton, Otis Rush, BB King, and many others!  There is enough blues guitar taught here to keep you busy learning for months!   

        Course comes with FREE downloadable booklet containing diagrams and TABS of ALL examples taught in the videos!  

         For the money, this may very well be the BEST blues guitar lesson bargain on the market!   

    *I highly recommend that you first complete part one of this course - Rhythm Guitar.   It's not absolutely necessary, but I think you will find this course much easier to understand lead guitar if you do!

    Alternating Bass And Ragtime Blues Guitar

    Ragtime piano became popular in the early 1900s and some blues guitar players realized that the characteristic bass signature could be played in a simplified way on the guitar. To accomplish this, it was necessary to strike two or three bass strings with the picking thumb, alternating between the strings, producing a bum-chick sound. When this technique was combined with the picking sounds of the fingers, a very complex sound is produced which sounds like two guitars!

    Many guitarists, such as Mississippi John Hurt, used this technique exclusively and recorded some fine work - he is one of the artists we take a look at in this course.The dexterity needed to play this style is far above that required to play monotonic, delta style blues. Blind Blake was probably the foremost ragtime blues guitar player between 1920 and 1930. He achieved this by taking the thumb control to a new, extraordinary level.

    In many of his songs, Blake doubled up on the alternating thumb beats, making two notes instead of one. Blake's work is covered in another of my courses.

    I've presented 6 video lessons demonstrating the techniques of some great guitar players who were experts at playing ragtime style syncopated guitar songs - John Hurt, Pink Anderson, Willie Walker, Blind Boy Fuller and Blind Willie McTell. These guys laid the foundations of the style and provided the foundation for later master guitar pickers such as Merle Travis, Doc Watson, Chet Atkins and Tommy Emmanuel. Modern players took hold of this early ragtime sound and quickly extended the chords and techniques, exploring new areas. Many of the original Scott Joplin rags have been faithfully transcribed, and other ways of playing appeared constantly. In the U.S., many notable musicians extended these picking styles and gave the music a country flavor.

    The aim of Blues Accelerator is to take someone with little formal knowledge about blues guitar playing, and turn them into a confident blues player. The ultimate goal that we're headed towards is the ability to play over the 12 bar blues, which is the bread and butter of any blues musician. If you want to sit in with the real players, you need to have a rock solid grasp on playing over the 12 bar blues....and by the final lesson of this VOl. I, you will have mastered soloing over the 12 bar blues.

    Depending on your skill level coming into this course, you might find the first lesson a bit easy. Nevertheless, please follow along. Each lesson in the course builds upon the lesson that precedes it. Skip a lesson, and you risk missing an important aspect of blues soloing.

    As the title suggests, you can finish the course in 21 days.
