For the past few weeks I’ve been working on this new course of mine called “Learn the Guitar in 3 Weeks” or “LG3W” in short and now I can finally say it is done!
To tell you a bit about LG3W, it’s an interactive video tutorial that teaches people who really have no clue whatsoever about the guitar all the basics they need to know to be able to play a song in just 3 weeks and also continue on their own to play pretty much any song they want.
The thing that separates LG3W from all the other guitar courses I have encountered in my years of teaching the guitar (other than the fact that it’s done by me, of course) is that not only is it short, concise and straight to the point, but it also teaches you how to think, musically speaking.
I’ve never been a fan of memorising things just for the sake of memorising, without understanding what’s being memorised. When it comes to scales, chords and positions, things can get confusing sometimes, especially to people who feel they are not naturally well positioned at it. But what most people don’t know is that with a little explanation of how things work in music and on the guitar in particular, you can have even the least musically adept wowing at just how simple it is.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that the program alone will do wonders for you if you don’t plan on putting a little effort and commitment to follow the 3-week curriculum. I wish there was a magical button to press or some genie lamp to rub to just wake up knowing how to play the guitar, but alas there isn’t (to the best of my knowledge) and if there is such a thing I’m calling dibs to learn the drums… and horseback riding!
To give you more details about this course without making a lengthy post, I’ve dedicated a whole page on the blog just for this purpose, which you can find here.
Be sure to visit the page and most importantly to spread the word, especially to your circle of teenagers. A recent study has shown that playing the guitar can be a great tool to pick up that girl you have a crush on! Did I just make that up? Of course. But you can still try. And for my female audience, this goes both ways. Guys love a girl who can play and sing 😉
