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

Learn Guitar in 21 Days

Learn how to play thousands of your favorite songs on guitar in just 3 weeks!

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.

Want the very best guitar lessons on the web?  With pro instructor feedback??

I am an award-winning GIT grad, a 15+ year professional guitarist with 70k+ students, and the founder of Guitargate - sponsored by Paul Reed Smith Guitars. 

"This course will teach you how to master your fretboard, understand music theory, and most importantly, how to use these tools to craft your own unique sound."

*Watch lecture one (free preview) for a course introduction video

This course is a four part, interactive, step-by-step, all HD video course which teaches you everything you need to play with complete confidence and control in any genre of music!

Professional players don't "hunt and peck" or play without a plan. If you're getting paid to do studio work, tour with a working band, or even just play out in you local town, you need to know your instrument front and back, and know how to sound like you. This course is designed to give you exactly that.

Get beyond tabs. Get beyond memorizing note for note. Learn how to improvise and play with ease around the fretboard!

No tricks or gimmicks! If you follow the course and work hard, you will feel confident playing in any genre, over any changes, with anyone, anywhere, and be able to put your own personality into the music! It's really not that difficult if you try!

For the price of one month of private guitar lessons, you can have unlimited lifetime access to a world class guitar curriculum with real individual feedback from a professional instructor!

Lectures feature all HD videos with multiple camera angles (so you can easily see the neck), downloadable fretboard diagrams, custom jam tracks to play along with, and detailed lesson text. If you post a question or a video link in the discussion forum, I will personally respond with real individual feedback! I try to check it daily.

No matter where you are in your playing, this course will fill in the "gaps" and break down the neck and music theory in a simple, and most importantly, applicable way.

While this course is geared to players with at least 6 months of experience, you will go from the very beginning to playing over complex non-diatonic changes leaving no stone unturned. There isn't a more comprehensive course available anywhere.

After completing this course, if you wanted, you will have the tools to be a working professional guitarist... Or, you could just be a great guitar player and have a TON of fun. Either way, I personally GUARANTEE you won't find another course as streamlined, simple, and effective as this one. I've spent my whole professional life crafting this unique approach to the guitar, and I stand by it 100%.

The success I've had with my students has been nothing short of outstanding! Check out these student testimonials:

  • Gerard Bellini - "I attended Berklee online. Although they hit all the topics, you are the glue that puts it all together. My hat is off to you. Thanks!"
  • Erick Plascencia - Washington, D.C. - "I'm amazed at how good your program is. I've learned more in one week than I have ever taught myself in the 10+ years that I've "played" the guitar!"
  • Bob Turitz - Eagle, CO - "Seriously, I have never learned so much in the past 25 years than I have in the last few months! I love your teaching style!"
  • Graham Baughman - Louisville, KY - "Having played for 20+ years, all blues stuff, I am glad to finally learn the neck. Thanks for building a great way to learn! There is no other web site like yours! Thanks!"
  • Jim Ferrie - Shrewsbury, England - "I've been playing guitar for 45 years and your lessons and style of teaching is second to none. It is my most important find in my quest to learn guitar! I have never been more motivated to learn!"
  • Chris Reynolds - Hertford, England, UK - "I've been self taught for 12 years mostly by tabs and songs. I haven't seen theory explained in a way that makes so much sense, and I've spent many years looking!!"
  • Ryan Endersby - Fredericksburg, VA - "I have improved my ability ten fold. I finally feel comfortable on the fretboard and having individual feedback is AMAZING! You will learn your instrument!"
  • JC Senatore - Blacksburg, VA - "In 2 months, I've gotten better than I have in the past 2 years. No joke."
  • Tristan Johnson - Concord, CA - "I love the site, and it provides an excellent value. After a decade of strumming and learning a lick here and there, my playing is blossoming and I'm inspired in a way I don't think I've ever been!"
  • Donnie Eastman - Atlantic City, NJ - "I've had lessons for years and never understood theory and modes. In five minutes I felt that “ah-ha" moment! Awesome!"

Lastly, I would like this course to be as interactive as possible, so if you wish to post videos completing lessons, or have a question about any specific lesson, please post the YouTube link or the question in the discussion forum and I will respond to you ASAP.

This is something you won't find on any other course anywhere! Again, I will try to check the forums daily. I hope to see you inside!

And remember, you have a no questions asked 30 day money back guarantee. I'm confident you'll see the quality of the course right away, but if you don't love it, that's fine too...just send me a message and tell me how I can improve:)

Also, just to make sure you love it, you can preview the course for 5 minutes without purchasing. So take a look around!

Do you LOVE listening to music, and especially to songs with guitars in them?

Did you always wish to be able to play your favorite songs by yourself? (perhaps while singing along as well?)

Are you tired of long winded YouTube lessons and Udemy courses that get you nowhere? Or maybe you've been playing for some time, but the songs you play still don't sound good and seem like a lot of work?

Did you ever think that you're just "not musical" and won't be able to do this?

Well, I have exactly what you're looking for, and you're gonna love it. So if you love music - read on. 

My name is Alon Cooper, I am a professional musician and the founder of GuitarSongsMasters-com, one of the world's top five most read guitar blogs. (* source) I learned guitar by myself, and I am here to help you do it too, while solving a MAJOR problem in the music teaching world:

90% of the people who start playing the guitar - quit it within a year. (** source)

That's a shame to hear, but I know EXACTLY why this happens - and I worked hard to get the solution for you.

The Reason: Most teachers (online and offline) focus on too much fluff and don't really consider the player's wants and needs. Most lessons' final goals are too vague, too long winded, and lack a focus and understanding of what most people are really after - which is simply to play the songs that THEY love - out of their own hands. 

NOT playing boring scales. NOT playing some useless, generic melodies. NOT to have a 70 minutes lecture on what's a guitar strap.

Forget that. I am here to give you the QUICK RESULTS.

"An awesome course on guitar. I play acoustic but never went through a conventional guitar lesson or never took any lesson from a guitarist. I have learnt a lot of things that have halted my growth as a guitarist. There're some great valuable insights & tips that beginners can use and avoid training in the wrong way. The lessons and his playing is very clean. I have seen very few people play that clean and his equipments are amazing. Very clean playing and precise tutorials. You won't waste your time taking lessons from his courses." Khan Sami, India.

Why should you listen to me?

Hey! My name is Alon Cooper and I am 29 years old. I have been teaching music, both online and face to face, to tens of thousands of students in the last six years - while traveling four different continents and jammin' and performing with many different musicians. I am mainly a guitarist, pianist and harmonica player, and I also play other instruments including the flute, trumpet, bass and more. I am constantly looking for the best ways and shortcuts to teaching music effectively - and with FUN. The student feedbacks show that I do it very well. (:

My guitar blog, GuitarSongsMasters-com, (founded in 2014) where I share my tips for playing music, has a monthly readership of over 100K people from over a 150 different countries and is one of the world's top five most read guitar blogs*. I am also the founder of the Harmonica Jamz-com courses and blog that has been online since 2016 and has thousands of happy students here on Udemy.

----

The system in this course is geared towards one thing: giving you the ability to smoothly and joyfully play YOUR favorite songs. 

No one quits guitar when he's actually successful at playing his favorite songs.

Remember - I don't want you to pay for the lessons only to quit after two months. My mission is to get you to pick up the guitar and develop that PASSION and motivation that will keep driving you to make music for the rest of your life. 

Why shouldn't I take another course or just watch free YouTube lessons? 

Two reasons: 

1) Your time is valuable, and trying to learn your way through random lessons on random guitar topics (instead of using a systematic, logical and proven approach) will never get you as far as a systematic method. Even more, using random YouTube lessons will make it way more likely that you'll quit the guitar. 

2) I understand you. Just like how I learned independently how to play the guitar - I know your wants and needs - and I am here to shortcut your way to the success which is playing all of your beloved songs. I built this course as the DREAM GUIDE for independent learners that I wish I had at the time - and could have saved me literally thousands of hours of struggling around before I found and developed those shortcuts and methods myself. 

Can't wait to hear your stories after you'll be successfully jammin' all of your songs with your friends. 

Cheers,

-Alon

Acoustic Guitar Basics

The first steps to learning how to play guitar

"]

Students: 27987, Price: Free

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.

- 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.

Over the years, I improved the exercises, added to them, and taught them to my own students, while consistently seeing these tremendous results keep happening - time and time again.

Fingerstyle Guitar Mastery: 3 Techniques You Need To Know

Percussive fingerstyle guitar has become increasingly popular over the past few years, which is why I’ve made it my mission to teach students all the necessary skills and techniques to help them become better fingerstyle guitarists. Over the period of this course, I will teach you how to master three essential modern fingerstyle techniques that will take your guitar playing, as well as yourself as an artist, to a whole new level! 

Learn and Master the Three Essential Modern Fingerstyle Techniques in this Step-by-Step Guitar Course

  • Learn how to play slap harmonics
  • Learn how to play advanced body percussion
  • Learn how to play the over-the-top playing style
  • Get to know my favorite percussive warm-up exercise
  • Learn one of my most famous guitar riffs of my song „Memories“

Master Modern Percussive Fingerstyle and Play Like the Pros!

Well known guitarists utilize these fingerstyle techniques to make their songs sound more interesting to the audience. Besides being able to help you write more complex music, these techniques catch the eyes of your audience and make your songs sound more unique and appealing. In order to give you the optimal learning experience, I have carefully selected the exercises in this lesson to help you master these techniques. These lessons have been tested through workshops and private guitar instruction with my students before being recorded.

Contents and Overview 

This course focuses on quality instead of quantity and it provides straight to the point guitar lessons. In total, you will get five comprehensive tutorials, ten step-by-step exercises and one song riff. After this course you will be able to utilize these newly discovered techniques in your own compositions to write more compelling tunes and spice up your playing style.

To start with, I will introduce my favorite percussive warm-up exercise which is a combination of left hand legato lines and right hand percussive hits. This exercise helps to prepare you for other techniques because you will learn how to get your hands to play completely independent of one another. 

The main part of the course covers the three essential techniques: slap harmonics, body percussion and over-the-top playing. All of these are considered advanced techniques that requires the student to focus on each one individually in order to master them. Slap harmonics allow you to add exciting overtones that accentuate your playing. Body percussion on the other hand, introduces a completely new dimension to your music. By emulating a drum kit on your guitar, you are essentially playing two instruments simultaneously. Finally, with the tricky “Over-the-Top” style of playing, you will surely catch the attention of your audience.

At the end of the course, we will use all the techniques we’ve learned to play the riff of “Memories” - one of my most famous songs with over two million views on YouTube! 

Learn Guitar: Zero to Guitar Fingerpicking in 30 days

Learn Guitar: Go from complete beginner to guitar fingerpicking in 30 Days

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. 

Have you ever dreamed of playing guitar or even started but then faded away after a while? Do you think it's going to be years of practice before you sound good? Would you be excited if I told you you didn't have to just play boring chords for the first six months - you could actually be fingerpicking within 30 days?

Over the years, I have experimented and realised that there is a way to teach students that seems like starting with what many would believe to be a 'complex' or 'advanced' style - fingerpicking using the thumb and three fingers - is actually the best way for a complete beginner to learn.

There is good reason for this. The traditional method of learning chords and strumming them is relatively easy to do, but actually surprisingly hard to do well. Listen to any beginner strum a set of chords and you see it is hard for the beginner to sound musical after a couple of days. But if you start picking strings individually, then after 4 or 5 days, you can play some really nice pieces. And this is the key: rewarding the student from day one, enabling them to sound musical within the first week. Believe me, I have seen this work time and time again.

When you want to learn the guitar, it matters hugely which course and teacher you pick. The cost of getting this wrong isn't that you lose out on $30-50, it is that the teaching may not stick for you and you may end up with a life where you never learn guitar, rather a life where picking up the guitar is a huge joy and pleasure for you, whether just on your own or playing with other musicians. 

For a complete beginner, there is no more effective and no more enjoyable, musical and confidence building way than to start with a couple of chords and a fingerpicking technique. 

How is this course structured?

This course is designed to be followed by students in a 30 day period. Of course, some students may go faster and some slower - (if you cover this material in 60 days, you're still doing a great job). The course has five sections

  1. Getting Started - some basic information, identifying string names, a few chords, reading tablature, using a metronome

  2. Fingerpicking Basics - the background to how fingerpicking works, the big rule, several fingerpicking patterns

  3. The Thumb - the key to getting that 'two guitar effect' is for the thumb to do the work of the bass player; alternating bass, walking bass, more fingerpicking patterns

  4. The Fingers - adding more advanced patterns to the right hand fingers, pinching, different sequence length and writing your own fingerpicking patterns

  5. Advanced - clear breakdowns of advanced techniques like Travis Picking and Clawhammer

Note that each section has 5-7 individual lessons with a homework exercise after each lesson. At the beginning of the following lesson, I will give tips for anyone stuck with practical ways to get it mastered if you're finding it difficult.


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

  • play the most common guitar chords in a fingerpicking style

  • understand how to break down fingerpicking patterns into the bass/thumb and the melody/fingers and how to practice building up the component parts

  • read tablature and play along to a metronome

  • have a formula for composing their own fingerpicking patterns

  • play in travis picking and clawhammer styles


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 complete beginners. You don’t need to know anything about music or guitar playing to start. If you own or can borrow a guitar for thirty days, then you’re all set.

It is also perfect for “failed beginners”. Students who maybe toyed around with a guitar for a few months, maybe even learned a few chords but got bored because it wasn’t musical or rewarding enough and just strumming those few chords never sounded that great. If you don’t mind going slowly at first to get to more than just strumming chords, then this is for you.

Note that you do not need any previous experience with music to take this course.

Who should not?

If you having been playing guitar for years and have already several fingerpicking pieces you can play, this course could be too basic for you.

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, as 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..

You can learn anywhere, anytime on all platforms with access 24/7 and talk to an expert whenever you need, just leave a comment and we will get back to you with a quick response.

Your teacher Michael has been playing for 30 years and teaching one-on-one with students for 20, and over that time has seen the struggles beginners can have when they play guitar, so he developed a tried and tested step-by-step course for absolute beginners that will get the results you have always desired.

As An Added Bonus all the guitar lessons have multiple camera angles so you can see exactly what each hand is doing with onscreen TAB all with an easy to follow arrow with printable lesson materials so you can access them any time.

What you get in the course:

The first part you focus on the guitar fundamentals. Michael will start by talking you through selecting the best beginner guitar, guitar picks, guitar strap, guitar tuner and the best choices for you. You will learn the parts of an acoustic and an electric guitar and how to set up your amplifier.  

Michael will explore your correct posture, how to hold your pick and hand placement, correct guitar tuning techniques and all the skills a student needs to know before they start playing guitar. These steps are very important when first starting out and often overlooked by teachers with less experience.

Now the fun part.  We get straight into playing.  Michael knows you need to get a feel for the guitar first, so you start with reading TAB and playing on 1 string with 1 finger and we develop that skills with songs so you are playing straight away, from this point we take small steps learning new techniques and practising those skills with songs.  Using this method you'll be amazed at how fast you progress with your playing on an acoustic or an electric guitar. Learning a technique and applying that to songs is the best way to learn how to play guitar.

Michael has seen guitar for beginners courses that begin with chords and scales, this is simply wrong.  Through years of teaching beginners he understands it can be quite frustrating and takes a long time before you can see any progress in your playing because it is just too hard to start with these techniques. At essential guitar lessons we want you to get the right start. 

If you learn guitar the right way our step-by-step learning method will fast track your guitar playing by months as a beginner and years as you progress through to the advanced courses we have built. This is the best place to start for all beginners no matter what style of guitar playing you like.

"I've always loved teaching students how to play guitar and hope you enjoy this course as much as I did creating it."

Probably The Most Valuable FREE Blues Guitar Lesson You’ll Ever Take!

Bobby Harrison from Absolute Blues Guitar presents an in-depth blues guitar course with tab, standard notation, fretboard diagrams and high quality backing tracks.

In this tutorial, we will learn 15 essential blues licks in the context of a 12 bar blues solo over a shuffle groove in the good old-fashioned key of A.

Our solo spans two choruses (twice around the 12 bar progression) and features many classic blues licks and phrases in the styles of B.B. King, Freddie King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Albert King and Albert Collins. 

These 15 licks feature classic blues tonality, along with chord tones that really highlight the changes. These are all extremely usable ideas that you can incorporate into your own playing. Each lick breakdown features on-screen tab

In addition to learning the solo, we’re also going to cover a very cool rhythm guitar part that you can try out next time you find yourself at a blues jam.

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.

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.

I`m not one to toot my own horn, but I want to be straight with you. I have a LOT of real world experience teaching people how to play acoustic guitar in the most enjoyable and efficient way.

Most of my eBooks have gotten dozens and dozens of 5 star reviews on Amazon Kindle and continue to sell at a fast rate. My courses are all extremely popular and have been sold countless times all around the world.

The thing is, I was once an AWFUL guitar player. I was really bad and I made loads of mistakes when learning. 

If there was something one could do wrong, I did it. 

I took me a lot of trial and error to get good at playing but I did. I hated the struggle at the time but I genuinely think it made me the teacher I am today. 

I care genuinely about every students` success and have all the tools and experience to help every one of you succeed. 

Learning and getting good at the guitar can be tough but join me in this FREE course and see that things can be done the fun way. 

If you are interested in fingerpicking, strumming and fun stuff on the guitar, then you will love this course. 

If you are a beginner or have played for some time and find it a struggle, you will love this course. 

This course isn`t like any of my paid premium courses. It is simply a best of what I do, ordered in sections. 

Go through it, section by section, but feel free to hop about. 

This series of lessons is me giving something back to the wider guitar world. 

I hope you enjoy this fun course and get plenty from it. 

Any questions, fire away. Unlike most, I`ll answer them all.

Thanks and keep on strumming!

YES, you’re in the right place! How do we know that? Because the very fact that you’re reading this course description says a a lot about you…

You’ve always wanted to play guitar and so you bought one or received one as a gift. You picked up a couple of beginner’s courses or had a friend give you a few tips. You put in the time to learn a few chords and a strum or two. But you still can't play your favorite songs or jam with your buds. You’re frustrated because you’re still a beginner, and not yet a player.

Statistically, only 7% of the people who set out to learn guitar have the conviction to get as far as you have (the vast majority quit before they even learn three chords). So, congrats to you! Now, the only thing keeping you from graduating from beginner to guitar player is desire (we know you have that!) and the right course of study.

Rich Maloof’s GUITAR 201 is the bridge between beginner and guitar player. The curriculum is specifically designed to teach beginners how to play entire songs smoothly, add personality to their sound, and play with other musicians confidently.

Welcome to your first guitar lesson! Some of you may be complete beginners never having held a guitar before, and some may have picked it up on your own but don’t feel like you’ve really mastered the basics. Either way, this course is for you. The guitar is an easy instrument to get good at quickly and within a few lessons you’ll be playing songs. Playing the guitar is a skill that you’ll have for the rest of your life. It’s a perfect relaxation tool, great socially, and both fun and easy.

I find that most beginning lessons either focus only on reading notes (which would bore me to death), or only on basic folk strumming and chords (and I like all styles of music). These lessons will give you an introduction to several different styles and all the lessons apply to either acoustic or electric guitar players. We’ll begin with shopping for a guitar and basic technique. By the time you finish the lessons you’ll be playing chords, well known riffs, tablature, fingerstyle,power chords, a twelve-bar blues, and a pentatonic scale. In the end, you’ll have a taste of all the basics and you can continue your lessons concentrating on the style that you like best. So lets get going and get our “Hands-On Guitar!”

WITH JUST ONE LESSON A DAY!

Do you want to learn how to improvise on guitar?

But don’t really know where to start?

You’ve gotten over the first few steps and have picked up the guitar

Maybe you’ve even gotten pretty good at your playing

But you just can’t figure out how to simply ‘play’

Perhaps you have never tried to improvise before...

“Why do I always play a fixed melody instead of creating my own?”

“How do I make my improvisation sound good?”

Perhaps some of you might have even gotten really good with your scales

You can probably play better than your friends on the guitar

Maybe you can play at blazing fast speeds

But your solos, or your improvisation, it all sounds stale

It doesn’t sound like music, but just a sequence of notes being played

If you can see yourself facing these problems….

Then you might be asking yourself.. Why?

Why can’t I solo as well as I want to?

What am I doing wrong?

Why am I stuck with the same old Pentatonic scale and can’t do anything else?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Is there some sort of method, or a strategy, that you could follow?

That would teach you how to improvise?

Is it possible to learn from someone who has collected and organized all the information you need

Saving you COUNTLESS HOURS of searching it all by yourself?

The answer to that is a resounding YES!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This course is the most comprehensive and effective beginner online guitar course on improvisation.

Learn to create beautiful solos on the spot in 30 days or less,

Whether you have never improvised before...

Or you already improvise but are confused about certain things such as theory, what scales to use and techniques, and you need help to take you to the next level.

This course is designed to guide you through three simple steps,

A system that I developed years ago and that I still teach all of my students today, with great results.

These three steps are:

  1. KNOW IN WHICH KEY YOU ARE, GIVEN ANY CHORD PROGRESSION

  2. KNOW WHAT SCALES YOU CAN PLAY ON THAT CHORD PROGRESSION

  3. HOW TO USE THOSE SCALES TO IMPROVISE!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What to expect from this course

  • 33 Lectures/Videos with PDF Attachments

  • 3 "Extra Content" Lectures

  • 6 hours of video

  • FREE Backing tracks in all key signatures

  • Quizzes to test your progress

  • A discussion forum where you can post questions and videos or recordings of yourself playing, to which you will receive individual feedback and tuition.

Follow the videos in order and you’ll soon find yourself improvising on the spot!

My name is Filippo Dall'Asta and I am a professional guitar player based in London, where I have been gigging and teaching guitar for the past 10 years.

I have been playing guitar for 20 years now and I have studied music in Italy, Germany, India and England.

In my music career I did a lot of research on improvisation and I found a lot of good courses and information on the internet

But I could never find any courses that have a proper system to guide beginners to understand the theory behind it, learn what scales to use and start improvising all in one.

All I could find was scattered information here and there, either very very basic or very advanced.

So I thought I needed to put a course together that would cover all those aspects

So that any beginner could start improvising in no time and enjoy the freedom of expression that comes with it

Without having to waste countless hours collecting fragmented information here and there on the internet.

I know that there are thousands of videos and courses on improvisation but on this course you will get all the information that you would normally find separately on several courses

All boiled down into one!

This course is very interactive and fun, you are going to learn and play a lot as well.

You will realize that improvising is very easy once you learn a couple of key elements and it doesn't take much time at all to get started.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But Don’t Take My Word For It. Here is what people had to say about this course:

  • "The course is designed to be thorough, and to guide the learner to see progress daily - and it works. I am having a lot of fun following this course and cannot recommend it highly enough." - Adam Smedley

  • "I enjoyed the course and Filippo's teaching style. There is clear and logical explanation of the required music theory, followed by techniques for creative improvisation. This course fulfils the objectives stated in the course content, and I am enjoying practising the techniques learned. Highly recommended if this is of interest." - Jon Cartoon

  • "Genuine? Helpful? Actually gives me a real place to start practicing?! So much yes." - Kyle Loyd

  • "Fantastic course. So well done, Filippo. Great instruction. Very clear. Some "lights" really went on for me as a result of this course. I feel more confident with my leads and now have better command of the fretboard. To any potential students: if you are on the fence about taking this course, give it a shot. You'll be happy you did." - Mark Allen

  • "Not being a complete beginner I still found this course very useful as it resolved some questions I had about music theory and improvisation. Also, Filippo strikes me as a very music passionate person and I would love seeing some other courses. P.S. Backing tracks are a huge bonus" - Ognjen Mišić

  • "This is by far the best online Guitar class I’ve ever taken. Well worth the investment. I have always been a good rhythm guitarist but was stuck in the pentatonic rut and didn’t understand chord theory and scales until now. I hope you create more courses! I’m telling all my friends who play guitar to buy this course! Thank you!" - Bob Bean

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Who is this course for?

  • Both acoustic and electric guitarists who want to learn a simple system to start improvising in any key signature

  • Musicians who aim to freely express themselves on their instrument

  • Beginners with little or no knowledge of scales and music theory

  • Intermediate players who are confused about theory, scales and techniques

  • Guitar players who want to move freely across the fretboard

  • Both acoustic and electric guitarists who want to learn a simple system to start improvising in any key signature

  • Beginners with little or no knowledge of scales and music theory

  • This course is probably not for you if you're looking to learn more advanced and complex improvisation techniques

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I genuinely believe this is an excellent course. I have worked on it for quite a long time; 10 hours a week for 13 months.

So a lot of effort went into collecting all the key takeaways, and compacting it all into a single simple-to-follow course for you.

However, I am aware of the fact that it might not be for everybody...

And that is why I offer a 30 Day Money Back Guarantee, no questions asked... so you have nothing to lose!

With that all being said, If you’re finally ready to take that next step

If you’re ready to be my next success story

And ready to show to your friends and family, and to YOURSELF, that this is just another challenge which you can overcome, with some hard work and dedication

If you love the thought of finally being able to EXPRESS YOURSELF COMPLETELY while playing...

Then join me and THOUSANDS of my students., and get started on your path to improvisation success!

We can’t wait to see you inside!

You already know how to tune a guitar. You already know several open position chords and maybe a couple of moveable barre chord shapes. You know a few strumming or picking patterns, can keep fairly good time, and have a small handful of easy songs under your belt. You can even play a few single note lines and licks. But you just can’t seem to take your playing to the next level…

Welcome to the club! Everyone who has ever picked up the guitar has been exactly where you are. Crossing that bridge between beginner and intermediate player is one of the biggest challenges we face as guitarists. There’s plenty of beginning guitar instruction and plenty of intermediate guitar instruction available, but there’s almost nothing that bridges the gap between them. That’s why Susan Mazer’s Beyond Beginner is your express ticket, over that bridge, to the bountiful and very musical world of intermediate guitar!

Susan has organized the Beyond Beginner course into eight sections, Each section contains a series of lessons focused on an essential skill you’ll need to cross your bridge to go beyond beginner…

“I’m going to help you develop the eight essential skills you’ll need to go beyond beginner. You’ll expand your open chord vocabulary to the 25 chords needed to play thousands of songs. You’ll learn how to use chord substitutions, extensions and embellishments. We’ll work on movable barre chord forms so you can play any of your tunes all over the neck. You’ll learn 30 strumming and picking patterns so that you can choose the perfect groove for any song. I’ll show you how to incorporate bass lines and slash chords in your playing. You’ll learn how to hold your own in any blues jam. You’ll learn how to solo a little and play a few single line fills. And finally, I’ll teach you how to play songs in any key to best match the singer.”

Your first stop on Susan’s bullet train will populate your chord vocabulary with all of the chords that you hear being played in your favorite songs but just haven't found on your fretboard yet. You’ll learn how form the Major 7th, Minor 7th and Dominant 7th chords that are so popular across almost every genre of music.

You second stop introduces you to those cool Sus4, Sus2, Add9 and 6th chords that all of your favorite singer-songwriters use all of the time. You’ll also learn how to use embellishments like hammer-ons and pull-offs while strumming chords to add even more interest to your rhythm playing.

All aboard and onto your third stop where Susan passes on the fretboard magic of moveable barre chords — your gateway to using the entire neck of the guitar for both rhythm playing and soloing. Even if you already play a few moveable barre chords, tune in here for more insight!

Learning 30 new strumming and picking patterns is next: 10 strumming patterns in 4/4 time, 10 strumming patterns in 3/4 time and 10 finger-picking patterns in 4/4 time. You’ll never be at a loss again to come up with an appropriate rhythm guitar part with these 30 patterns at you fingertips.

Next stop, Slash chords and Bass lines. Susan will show you how to incorporate slash chords and bass lines in your playing to create more textures and movement in your rhythm guitar parts.

Grab your electric guitar for the next stop as you learn to play and jam on the blues (although you can use electric or acoustic for any of the lessons and skills being taught in this course). The 12-bar blues is probably the most frequently played progression in contemporary music. Susan will show you a few different ways to play rhythm guitar parts for the 12-bar blues and also give you the tools to play it in any key.

Just two stops to go! On this stop, its time to start playing a little lead guitar. Susan shows you how to solo using movable and sliding major and minor pentatonic scales — the most important scales in popular music. You’ll also learn to add a few riffs to your rhythm playing.

On the last stop across the bridge, Susan ices the cake of your new musicality with a series of lessons focused on identifying keys and tonal centers, and how to approach changing keys to best match the singer’s voice, whether that’s you or the singer in your band.

You’ll play your way through the course, applying all of the skills as soon as you learn them by working with the playalongs and jam tracks that Susan prepared for the course. Susan also includes lots of charts and diagrams, and many of the examples will also be tabbed and notated, plus you’ll also get all of the rhythm tracks to work with on your own.

Grab your guitar and hop aboard, you’re headed way beyond beginner guitar!

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.
