Quickly Master the Guitar and Build Good Habits for Life-Long Learning

Beginner's Guitar Lessons: The Essential Guide, teaches you to play the right way from the first time you pick up the instrument. 

Learn to hold and strum the guitar, play in time, change chords, finger pick plus much more.

There are many common mistakes that beginner guitarists make that limit musical develop over a lifetime. Beginner's Guitar: The Complete Guide forms a foundation of effortless good technique and skills that will last a lifetime. 

Often, self-taught learners will 'hit a wall' later on due to bad techniques picked up early on.

As a guitar teacher, time and time again I see adult guitarists who have come to a road block in their playing. It may be speed, changing chords, rhythm, or many other obstacles that were created when they first started learning. Most often, the student doesn't even know what the problem is, or why it's occurring. 

By learning the correct skills early on, you will avoid many common challenges later in your development.
