About This Class

I've been teaching private guitar lessons for years and this course represents the most valuable and common lessons that I teach my students first!  This course is basic, so you'll learn about tuning, using a metronome, the major scale and basic "cowboy" chords.  You'll get a well-rounded introduction to guitar playing and develop a solid foundation for using the best tools to get up and running quickly... with good habits!

Plus, you'll get an introduction to reading guitar tab and even play your first improvised guitar solo - something my private students are always astounded that they can do!  All the sound files, guitar tab and advice you need is included.  Use the class project as a way to push your learning a bit, have fun and always feel free to reach out to me with questions!  Happy guitar playing!
