Below you will find our eighteen lesson course designed for the absolute beginning guitarist by Peter Vogl. You will learn the same information as you would in your first several months of lessons with a private teacher. Using all of the concepts taught in these lessons, you’ll be ready to start playing songs and creating your own music. This course is taught using an acoustic guitar but we also have a beginner course that is more focused on playing electric. In the first six videos, Peter will teach you about holding the guitar and pick, playing notes and melodies, beginner chords, strumming, and more.
As we move on to lessons 7-12, Peter will cover the same material you would play with a teacher after a few months of lessons and practice. You will learn strumming patterns, more advanced picking techniques, new chords and scales, and more. These lessons will give you the tools you need to play a wide variety of popular songs and headed towards playing with others and creating your own material.
Lessons 12-18 will teach you the tips and tricks that separate a real guitarist from a beginner. You’ll learn techniques like hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides, with step by step instruction. We’ll also cover new chords, progressions, and strumming patterns. Finally, you’ll learn how to make basic progressions more exciting by adding embellishments and mixing in riffs with the chords.
