What is this course?
So you clicked on this link for a reason.
What about this course can benefit you?
Here's the thing: there is no such thing as the best course in the world, but I do believe there are courses that work for different individuals.
My philosophy with this course is simple:
Learn what you really need to learn to play guitar, and don't waste your precious time with other stuff that might look nice but you probably won't need or even want to learn.
In Guitar Kickstarter, I've gathered all the info you will need to learn and handle for virtually any situation. I know, because that is what I've used consistently over the years.
I created this course to take you from absolutely zero knowledge up to a good player as quickly as possible, but without skipping any must-have skill or piece of knowledge.
It doesn't matter what style of music you like the most, and neither does your choice of electric or acoustic guitar (in fact, I'll help you choose which instrument to get).
If you fall into any of these categories, you will benefit from this course:
Been trying to learn on your own but have a hard time being consistent.
Are 20+ years of age and have limited time to put into practice.
Are retired and feel now is the moment to practice what you never could before.
Feel overwhelmed with all the info, lessons, videos, and tips out there.
You've always wanted to learn but keep putting it off for any reason.
If you are sure you want to be the next Rockstar, I'm sorry: this course will not get you there; but it will get you started right.
Here's what you'll learn from this course:
How to handle your guitar, and choose the one most suitable for you without breaking the bank.
How to play any chord and melody.
The bare-bones music theory needed, without any overhead.
Play with your fingers and with a pick.
How to read music: tablature, chord diagrams, and more.
How to play the songs you like, and play them back for your friends (I can't teach you how to sing, though, so be careful!).
Where to go to if you want to continue improving your skills.
Guitar Kickstarter covers these topics:
Your Guitar And Gear
You will learn what a guitar is, its parts, and how to play it correctly.
I will also give you my recommendations on how to choose your first instrument, as well as other gear you will need.
The basis of guitar music. I'll show you what they are, how to play them, how to switch between them, strumming patterns, and more.
I'll show you how to play single-note melodies, including soloing. Yes, not only the pros play solos: you can too.
Learning A Song
You'll learn what you need to know when learning a new song. How to practice it in order to never forget it.
Music Theory Crash Course
The boring stuff, I know. I'll teach you what you need to know to give you a better context on the rest of the contents.
Adding Flourish To Your Playing
Playing well is not enough, so I'll show you what you can do to make your music come to life, using techniques that add groove and feeling to your playing.
How To Get Unstuck
If you happen to get stuck while learning any part, which you will, I'll show you the tips I've used that have helped me pushing through.
Going The Extra Mile
If you've gone through the course and already feel comfortable with your playing, I'll give you my recommendations on what you can focus on to continue your guitar journey beyond this course.
How long does it take to complete?
A good average is around 125 hours of practice.
Take into consideration that this does not mean that once you get to that number it's all over. Focus on learning and not on crossing out hours.
In any case, you should aim for at least 3 months, even if you have plenty of time per week to practice.
I will be your teacher in this course, and I'll make sure you get what you are looking for.
You can always reach me on my email if you have any doubts, so that you never get stuck.
What it contains
Over 2 hours of HD video containing every detail.
Downloadable practice sheets that you can print to play or take on your phone/tablet to practice anywhere.
Audio files so you can hear exactly what you have to play so you know if you are doing something wrong.
Direct consultation! Ask me any question you have, even those you are embarrased to ask anyone else. I won't tell anyone, I promise!
Who is this for?
In your 20s, 30s, or older, and have little time to spare for practice.
Have a hard time maintaining consistency in your practice schedule.
Are retired and finally want to start learning what you've wanted since grade school.
You are overwhelmed by the amount of info and lessons out there and don't know where to start.
What you will need
A guitar, new or borrowed.
I'll help you buy the one that's best for you if you need it.
At least 3 hours per week to practice and study. More is preferable, but consistency is best.
Badass attitude. You are in this to make it, and failure is not an option.
