Description

Welcome to this beginner guitar masterclass!

This course is going to take you from ZERO to HERO in a very short amount of time. 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 11 hour masterclass. Now you´ll have the benefit of a tested and retested learning method! I promise you FAST and EASY progress, and you´ll have a lot of FUN during the process :-)

Imagine the next time someone asks you to pick up the guitar at a family gathering and NOW you can play songs everyone know and enjoys with ease and confidence. You´ll be the star at the party and everyone will love you for it!  After you enroll in 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!!!

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 a easy time following along with all the lessons.

This method has WORKED on thousands of students and I know it will work for you!

Become the guitar player you´ve always dreamed of being and ENROLL NOW!!!

You won´t regret it...

Here are what some of my students have said in the past!

"Just amazing, Cant ask for more simple and easy step by step learning.
The good thing is I´m learning and instructor is proving to be best. Glad
I found this course! Thank You sir!"

"I have just completed this course and would comment accordingly.
Extremely well-constructed, laid out and balanced course, targeting all
the key areas of guitars and gear. The information and advice provided
by Henry Olsen provides the student with a sound grounding, and prepares
them for their journey ahead. I found the lectures most informative and
stimulating, and has further invigorated me to explore some new aspects
of my playing too. Highly recommended, and I would urge anyone,
certainly a beginner, to work through this course. Thank you, Will."

Henry is a guitarist passionate about his craft but there is something more important to him – impacting his students’ lives and helping them build their passions and their dreams. In his words, he describes his joy “Teaching guitar is more than sharing experience for me. I feel like I´m really refining my skills as a teacher, but more than that, there is no greater joy then seeing my students’ faces light up after playing something that they thought was never possible for them”.
In his downtime, when he is not providing guitar lessons or improving and honing his craft, Henry likes to indulge in his other passions; spending time with his family, skateboarding and yoga.
