Learn Guitar in 21 Days

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

Created by TrueFire Guitar Lessons - The World's Most Comprehensive Library of Guitar Lessons!

"]

Students: 67817, Price: Free

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.

Sounds good, right?

"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.

Fingerstyle Guitar Mastery: 3 Techniques You Need To Know

Learn 3 essential modern fingerstyle techniques from Tobias Rauscher, the guitarist with 20.000.000+ YouTube views

Created by Tobias Rauscher - Musician & Guitar Teacher

Students: 22294, Price: Free

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!

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.

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.

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!”

The Complete ARPEGGIO SONGS Guitar Course: Beautify Songs!

Learn Everything About The #1 Way to Beautify Your Songs: Arpeggiating the Chords (Playing the Notes Individually)

Students: 10115, Price: Free

How would it feel like - to know that you can BEAUTIFY any song that you choose - and easily create a much cooler version if it?

---

Are you tired of the same boring way of playing songs - only by strumming them? ("down-down-up", etc.)

In this course - you will learn how to play song using arpeggio picking - which I like to call "the #1 way to beautify ANY song".

After this course, you will be able to EASILY play any song that you love while using this special guitar technique.

Even if originally it's a song that was played by using full strums - you will learn how to "convert" it.

---

Think about the following songs - can you recall the guitar picking style that makes them sound special and stand out? I bet you do for at least some of them:

  • Green Day - Time of Your Life

  • Led Zeppelin - Stairway to Heaven

  • The Eagles - Hotel California

  • Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah

  • Bob Dylan - Don't Think Twice It's Alright

  • Fleetwood Mac - Landslide

  • The Animals - House of The Rising Sun

  • R.E.M - Everybody Hurts

This picking style - called arpeggio picking - where we pick the notes individually instead of strumming all strings together - is the topic of the course.

This is personally my favorite way to play songs in - and I also really like to take songs that are originally strummed and instead spice them up using arpeggios. 

You will learn exactly how to use the beautiful arpeggio technique and incorporate it into any song that you'll choose to:

  • All about playing songs using the arpeggio picking - and that means that we will be talking practically and using examples from popular rock and pop songs.

  • Exactly how to convert ANY regular (strummed) song into an interesting, arpeggiated one.

  • How to use the arpeggio technique both by using a pick or by using your fingers. (Fingerstyle arpeggio)

  • The #1 secret for smoothness and accuracy when playing arpeggios - that when a friend told it to me a decade ago - my whole approach to arpeggios became a lot more natural and easy, AND I sounded way better. 

  • When and in what parts of the songs it'll usually sound better if you'll use arpeggios instead of regular strums. 

  • You'll be able to write songs using the arpeggio technique - songs that'll be a lot more unique.

  • Learn the exact arpeggio patterns for songs ranging from Bob Dylan, Jeff Buckley, R.E.M and many other greats.

  • I will teach you a technique that I call the "Arpeggio Bass Stairways" - where you can add gorgeous, interesting transitions 9walk-ups & walk-downs) between the different chords of the song.

  • How to make your arpeggios "dirty", so you can add some power to the more intense parts of the song while still not playing the simple "down-down-up" kind of rhythm.

Students: 9740, Price: Free

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.

Longtime TrueFire instructor and blues maven David Hamburger is your extremely capable guide to blues guitar. Hamburger has appeared at Merle Fest and countless other festivals and has performed with Joan Baez, Duke Robillard, and many others. David is a contributing editor to Acoustic Guitar, author of a dozen books, including the award-winning "Beginning Blues Guitar" and has authored many TrueFire courses.

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.

Play Like Hendrix & John Mayer: The Rock N Roll THUMB Course

Start Using Your THUMB From Above the Neck: Play CLEANER and More Precisely & Unlock the Pro Rock N' Roll Sound.

Created by Cooper - Guitar Songs Masters - 100K+ Students | Founder @ Guitar Songs Masters

"]

Students: 8062, Price: Free

This course will teach you how to play any song with that cool style that Jimi Hendrix, John Mayer, and other greats, are constantly using.

It will also teach you everything about the technique of playing "thumb over" chords - which you can read more about right below.

If you observe ALL the biggest rock n' roll and blues guitar players of the last 50 years, you'll see a repeathing theme: they all use their THUMB to play the bass notes for most chords up the neck, and their thumb is almost always up there, helping them, and hanging above the fretboard - meaning that their hand is hugging the neck from both sides.

This, my friends, is proper professional guitar technique. 

But WHY? That's exactly what I asked myself as well, especially considering the fact that it was very hard for me at first to wrap my hand around the neck like all the masters do. 

So here's why:

  • When you're "hugging" the neck from both sides - your control over the guitar naturally becomes a lot better, and your playing becomes a lot more confident and clean. (in the "tight", good way - of playing only the notes that you meant to play)

  • When you play barre chords, your pinky finger would now be FREE - which means it will be able to play all those sexy "Hendrix chord embelishments" and riffs.

  • When you'll be standing up - this is a MUCH more comfortable and natural way to play - no more awkward barre chords that make your arm bend in weird angles. 

  • The "rock n' roll spanky" sound, developed by Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Frusciante, John Mayer and other masters - would now be unlocked to you, and I'll show you some first practical footsteps to take in that direction.

  • Many new chord shapes (that are especially useful for rock n' roll and blues) would now be "unlocked" for you.

  • Your lead guitar playing (improvising / playing melodies) will be much more clean since you'll be able to mute the unwanted strings.

  • And yes, you'll also look cooler (: - because that's how all the professionals play - and for a reason. 

The problem that I am especially here to address is that for many people - including me at first, this transition (to playing with the thumb hanging and helping from above) does not come naturally at all. 

I was totally sure that something is wrong with my hands or with my guitar - and that I just wasn't supposed to play with the thumb. Until I GOT it. 

So in the course, I will share with you a couple of excellent, and very simple exercises, that just by doing them for a couple of minutes every day - in no time you'll be playing all those chords with the thumb from above like a pro. 

These exercises are exactly what took me from that feeling of "this thumb thing isn't for me" to "this thumb thing feels so natural and my playing is now SO much more clean, fun and simply cool.

You won't believe how quickly this transition would come for you, and how natural and BETTER the guitar would feel in your hands.

And then, after we have the thumb "ready to go", in the second part of the course I will give you some of the best tips and tricks to start getting that "Hendrix" sound - the sound that influenced so many other masters that followed him since the late 60's until today. 

What we will talk about in the Hendrix / John Mayer section of the course:

  • What are the 4 INGREDIENTS of the Hendrix and John Mayer sound.

  • How to get that Hendrix / Mayer spanky GROOVE that they have in their rhythm playing.

  • How to add those cool Hendrixian riffs to funk up your songs and add a lot more interest. The signature of his style!

  • His favorite chord shapes, the ones that are the most comfortable to use with the famous riffs.

  • And more. But the most important thing is that I will teach you how to take some of their style and combine it into your own style, instead of sounding like a clone or a wannabe.

So get ready to have a lot more fun on the guitar, and to break that door right into the next level of guitar playing. 

On top of that, as a bonus, you will learn many more things (see below) that will be of a huge help along your guitar journeys, some of them really took me years to find out.

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!
