Description

In these online guitar lessons for beginners, I will teach you how to confidently perform 1 very popular rock guitar song in 1 day to 1 week even if you've never played a guitar or sang before! I'll do this by teaching only the most crucial guitar & music fundamentals, and then focus purely on the elements of the song itself, wasting no time.

Overview of the online guitar lessons:

  • What's the best beginner guitar equipment to buy, and where?
  • How to set up and use your guitar equipment
  • Song structure & counting
  • How to hold the guitar
  • Guitar chords used for the song
  • Tips for sounding like you've played guitar for years
  • How to put it all together to play & sing the song
  • How to conquer stage fright and confidently perform on stage, like a boss

As you complete these rock guitar lessons, you'll be able to rehearse as often as you want using my free pre-recorded backing tracks. It will feel just like playing guitar with a real band! If you don't already have a guitar and amplifier, no problem! I will recommend exactly which beginner guitar equipment to buy and where to buy it.

So whether your child has a talent show coming up, or you're a mid-forties accountant who's yearning to get up on stage at an office party and stun your colleagues, now is the time to unleash your inner rock star! You will never find an easier way to learn to play rock guitar than these online guitar lessons!

  • This course is for someone who's looking for the absolute fastest way to go from never playing guitar or singing, to having enough skill & confidence to get up on stage and perform a song if they choose to.
  • While everything I teach in this course is applicable to learning to play even more songs... this course is not for someone seeking a comprehensive guitar instruction course covering all aspects of guitar.
  • If you've been looking for online guitar lessons for beginners, you've found the best!
