-Learn from a Professional Teacher-

Written by a professional, full time guitar teacher, 15 Essential Guitar Lessons for Beginners, teaches you to play the right way from the first time you pick up the instrument.

“The most common scenario I come across as a guitar teacher is the adult who is self-taught with bad habits: Things that should be sorted out on day one and have been left unchecked for years have developed into brick walls stopping any progress.

Makes a difference in my practice I’ve being playing for about a year now. My schedule makes it difficult to do the required routine.

And the audio is great because sometimes I’m left wondering just exactly what sounds I should be making precisely.
