This course covers all of the basics that one would need for learning the guitar.  I start from how to hold the guitar, tune it, names of strings all the way  to learning Eagles songs! This purchase comes with almost 12 hours of video instruction, a beginner guitar ebook, and audio practice tracks for every tune.  These are lessons I have taught to my private students over the last 5-7 years that I feel are best suited for the beginner and/or the hobby player who wants in-depth look at correct basics and must know concepts.

I understand that this eCourse is not the same as in person one-on-one lessons but these videos are step-by-step, in-depth, and cohesive instruction.  I teach these very same lessons to any first time guitarist that walks into my studio wanting to seriously learn how to play the guitar.  I know this method works.  I honestly believe these lessons are the next best thing to in-person lessons.  If you have detailed questions about the package and course please feel free to email me at my contact page.  Thanks for taking the time to check out my course!

Best guitar instruction on the net for me. Challenging enough to push me yet rewarding with noticeable improvement. I really like instruction primarily based on classic and familiar songs. Great communication with members whether helping us or looking for new instructional ideas.

This is a fantastic course and let me tell you why. I’m a full-time working husband and father of five. I’d been dabbling with the guitar in the evenings for about 18 months. I’d learned how to strum a few chords and put a few tunes together, but I got stagnant and made little progress. I didn’t have a good grasp on THE BASICS. Once I purchased the Beginner Guitar Ecourse 101, my guitar playing improved by leaps and bounds. The combination of resources contained in this course is wonderful. I needed knowledge and someone to help me pace things. I needed to hear the tunes at different tempos and a standard on paper. WHAT I NEEDED WAS A TEACHER and Ryan has provided that plus the tools to apply myself. I’m getting into the third lesson after a month now and the whole family can see my added confidence and skill. I still have nine lessons to go and can’t wait to see how well the improvements will be six months from now. You won’t be disappointed if you get the course, follow the instruction given, and practice. This is a solid setup. Thanks Ryan for putting together a great package!

I have had my acoustic guitar for a couple of years but didn’t have time to do much with it until I retired. I have been watching your website because I like your song selection and teaching style. While I might not be a complete beginner, I wanted the beginner 101 course to make sure I get some basic techniques that I expect will help me learn a little faster. I learn something new every day. The tip on picking the 8th notes in concert with foot tapping, up and down, is a little awkward for me but I see the value. As you might guess, I am one of the older folks that never had the rhythm experience mentioned in your lesson 2! Playing guitar should be about having fun. The bottom line is that I like your teaching method and style and I am having a lot of fun. I strongly recommend this course to anyone, and especially to those that want to flat-pick.

Hey, Ryan, Thank you for giving me your wonderful guitar courses. It is such a great pleasure to learn music from you! About a month ago, when I happened to viewed an episode of your course on Youtube, I decided to learn guitar with you, because your clear and patient instruction enabled me to follow your instruction easily. I already feel guitar and your video course already an indispensable part of my life!
