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.
