About This Class

Follow along this easy step by step beginner course to learn how to play the guitar.

Never played a guitar before? Perfect.
This course was created for you.

The guitar is one of the most popular instruments to play and can be extremely useful for personal enjoyment, social settings or even the beginning of a career.

But the problem is… It can be really confusing where you should start when learning how to play guitar. Should you first learn chords? Tablature? Sheet music? It can be overwhelming for a beginner and that’s why this course was made.

We realized there had to be an easier way to teach anyone how to get started with playing the guitar without diving into the technical musical theories.

Presenting our Guitar for Beginners: Learn How To Play Your First Song course. Our course will make it easy and simple for you to learn how to play your first song and give you the knowledge to be able to create your own songs.

Here’s what will be covered in the course:

  • How to Hold Your Guitar
  • The Parts of Your Guitar
  • Numbers You’ll Need to Know
  • Tuning Your Guitar and the Musical Alphabet
  • Holding the Pic and Strumming
  • Chords and Chord Transitions
  • Bends and Vibratos
  • Pulls, Hammers, and Trills
  • Slides and Palm Muting

Then we’ll incorporate all the lessons into a comprehensive song to give you the ability to play your first song.

Our Promise To You
By the end of this course, you will have the knowledge on how to play the guitar.
