Guitar lessons for beginners

  1. 1. Hello and welcome to Guitar lessons for beginners - episode 1.
  2. 2. In today's podcast we'll talk about what's important when starting to learn guitar.
  3. 3. My goal is to steer you into the right direction
  4. 4. so that your learning experience can be as productive and enjoyable as possible.
  5. 5. But before we continue, allow me to be frank.
  6. 6. I'm going to tell you, without sugar coating it,
  7. 7. what I tell to all beginner guitarists.
  8. 8. Guitar is NOT easy.
  9. 9. If you believe otherwise, you are in for a frustrating and disappointing experience.
  10. 10. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to discourage you,
  11. 11. I just want you to have the right mindset and attitude.
  12. 12. This is extremely important, especially if you want to get any good.
  13. 13. I've seen many beginners fail, not because they were not talented enough,
  14. 14. but because they chose the wrong approach.
  15. 15. And I don't want this to happen to you!
  16. 16. The key to success or failure lies in the approach.
  17. 17. First, it is essential to realize that learning guitar is a step-by-step process.
  18. 18. It's important to start with the basics and work your way up.
  19. 19. It's also very important to develop good habits from the start.
  20. 20. Most beginners simply don't know where to start.
  21. 21. They search all over the internet for tidbits of information and try to work something out.
  22. 22. The danger with this approach is that they tend to stick
  23. 23. only to a few techniques they've picked up here and there,
  24. 24. and quickly develop bad habits which can later on severely hinder their progress.
  25. 25. There are three key requirements to learning guitar:
  26. 26. Good instructions
  27. 27. Regular practice
  28. 28. and realistic expectations
  29. 29. All are important, but the most important are good instructions.
  30. 30. Without them, the other two won't do you much good.
  31. 31. The best way to learn guitar is to find quality lessons and stick with them.
  32. 32. What you need are clear and consistent step-by-step lessons
  33. 33. that will guide you from start to finish, from the beginner to the advanced level.
  34. 34. Learning guitar doesn't have to be a trip full of frustration and confusion.
  35. 35. If you want serious guitar lessons, then my recommendation is
  36. 36. Gibson's Learn & Master Guitar
  37. 37. Proper guidance is one of the most important things on your journey toward guitar mastery.
  38. 38. I have seen many guitar lessons in many different formats,
  39. 39. from books and DVDs, to online lessons and software.
  40. 40. Sadly, most of them don't deliver.
  41. 41. Gibson's Learn & Master Guitar, does.
  42. 42. This is the best guitar course that I've seen so far
  43. 43. and is what I recommend to all aspiring guitarists.
