TrueFire's new palmistry technology will reveal your inner-most feelings and reveal your future... You have always wanted to play guitar. There is song inside of you. Yet, everything you've tried in the past has failed miserably and left you frustrated, angry and despondent. Your fingers hurt. Your hands cramped. You couldn't even learn to tune the guitar properly. They laughed at you. You must not be musically inclined. Your hands must be too small. You must be too uncoordinated. But wait... a vision is forming. It's YOU strumming your heart out. It's YOU playing your favorite songs. They aren't laughing any more. They're singing with you... Every year, millions of people try to learn how to play acoustic or electric guitar only to fail with a lingering false belief that somehow it was an inadequacy of their own at fault. They did not fail -- their chosen course of study failed them. Susan has taught hundreds of thousands of people to play acoustic and electric guitar with her modern approach and you can bet your bottom dollar that she will not fail you here with this interactive video version of her highly acclaimed learning system. Whether you wish to learn acoustic or electric guitar, Susan's engaging curriculum coupled with TrueFire's interactive video format accelerates the learning process and making your practice sessions so addictive that you'll have trouble putting your guitar down to go to sleep at night. There are hundreds of beginner guitar courses, the vast majority of which follow the same conventions that piano teachers have historically, and very unsuccessfully, employed to teach children. Before you even come close to playing the music that you love, you're forced to learn how to read music, practice scales and boring exercises, study tedious theory and learn nursery rhymes. No wonder kids find these lessons so painful and ultimately quit. And no wonder adults will ditch that approach in a heartbeat. Susan Mazer's Hands On Guitar: The Beginner's Guide breaks all of those conventional rules and that's precisely why her teaching method works as well as it does. Susan has taught hundreds of thousands of people to play guitar with her modern approach and you can bet your bottom dollar that she will not fail you here with this interactive video version of her highly acclaimed learning system. "Some of you may be complete beginners having never held a guitar before and some of you may have picked it up on your own but donâ€™t feel like youâ€™ve really mastered the basics. Either way this course is for you. The guitar is a very easy instrument to get good at very quickly and within just a few lessons youâ€™ll be playing songs and making great music." You will NOT be required to learn how to read music. You will NOT be required to practice scales and exercises. You will NOT have meaningless theory forced down your throat. And you will NOT learn a single nursery rhyme throughout the entire course. Promise! You WILL learn how to tune the guitar easily and quickly, how to pick out the best acoustic or electric guitar for yourself, how to understand musical terms and how to properly hold the guitar and position your hands and fingers. You WILL learn how to work with both single-note and chord tab. You WILL learn enough chords and strums to play your favorite songs in any popular style of music. Going way beyond the conventional beginner guitar course, you WILL also learn a little finger-style technique, power chords for rock and pop, how to play a 12-bar blues, and even how to improvise single-note lead guitar lines. Dozens of play-alongs apply the lesson material in a fun, musical and real-life context as you play with Susan using practice rhythm tracks featuring drums and bass. You also get the practice rhythm tracks to work with by yourself -- everything you need to simulate playing with a real band! Plus, dozens of charts and chord grids are included to reference during learning and practice sessions. Susan's engaging curriculum coupled with TrueFire's interactive video format accelerates the learning process and making your practice sessions so addictive that you'll have trouble putting your guitar down to go to sleep at night.
