Chris is very easy to follow, he explains the musical concepts, then shows the examples and plays them to you to play along. The interval and triads by the end was a little bit intermediate/advance for me but it is just a matter of study and practice. Thanks for this course Chris!
I've always wanted to learn how to play the guitar. I got an acoustic guitar, gifted to me by a very dear friend of mine almost 8 years ago. Back then Internet was not so savvy here in India. I checked out a couple of guitar tutors around my city but, both they charged too much or didn’t seem friendly enough and I ended up joining none of them. Few months later, I had an accident on a motorboat in the ocean where I hurt my left index finger pretty bad. With two fractures and eight stitches, the idea of being able to play guitar, went outta the window. My fingers started gaining strength and I decided to buy an electric guitar to motivate myself to learn ago. It's been a few months I'm following your beginner's course & learning songs on my own, and I cannot believe myself play so well in such a short time. I really want to thank you Chris! for making this experience so much fun, and for making it so easy. The small things you focused on played a very important role in developing my basic’s techniques. And thank you Jamplay.com for providing this awesome course for free. All the backing tracks and course syllabus provided was extremely helpful. You guys Rock!! Thank you very much.
