Online Guitar Lessons FAQ
The Beginner Package 1 assumes you have never played the guitar. The Beginner Package 2 assumes you have a knowledge of the D, G, A7 chords and a couple of strumming patterns. It would be advantageous to have completed a Beginner Package 2 before you sign up for the Intermediate Package of lessons.
You will need an acoustic guitar (not electric). It doesn’t matter if it has steel strings or nylon strings.
Not at all, although knowledge of music is always useful. I provide all the chords for every song. That’s all you need.
Yes. When you have access to a group of lessons, I encourage you to watch these lessons multiple times. You can learn at your own pace.
Yes. Each lesson is based on knowledge from a proceeding lesson, so each lesson is completed in numerical order.
I recommend taking one week to practise the content of each of these lessons. So much of learning how to play the guitar involves muscle memory and that is only accomplished through practising regularly.
When you are beginning, I recommend you practise at least 15 minutes a day. It is better to practise a short time every day, rather than a long time once a week. Like anything else, the more your practise, the better you will become.
Keep practising in small time intervals! The more you practise, the faster calluses will develop on your left fingers and the pain will miraculously disappear!
Sure! I help you pitch your voice by telling you how to find the first note in a piece so you can sing on the key.
Yes. Right from the first lesson, I teach basic strumming so you are playing on the beat. As you become more comfortable with the guitar, I add in different types of strumming.
You will be able to play a piece after the very first lesson! These lessons are meant for people who want to enjoy singing and playing for their friends and family, not for people who want to seriously study guitar for professional purposes.
