Everyone learns at a different pace. Be patient. Allow yourself plenty of practice time to properly develop your new guitar skills.

These courses have small easy to comprehend video lectures to practice with. This will allow you to work a little at a time or keep going if you like a faster pace.

If you always wanted to learn the guitar, but just didn’t have the time or the budget for private lessons, this is the course for you.
