Lesson Pros 

Who this course is for:

  • For the beginner - This is a great starting point - you will get 10 major chords which are used literally in millions of songs. Plus get strumming tips and patterns.
  • For the people that are saying my fingers are too fat, long or long, believe me I have heard all of that but truly believe anyone can play guitar if you are willing to put in the work. It takes time to learn the guitar. For most people it doesn’t just happen overnight but when things finally start to click it is really fun.
  • For anyone looking to meet new people. Playing the guitar is a great way to make new friends. I have met my closest friends playing music. There is a huge community of like-minded people playing music in every part of the world.
