There are a lot of "How To Learn Guitar" courses on the internet, but to be honest: a lot of them are not worth your hard-earned money. I've given myself the task to review the most popular courses, beginning with Gibson's Learn & Master Guitar.

So if you are frustrated trying to learn from the internet or books, read on...

Another surprise when I put the first DVD in my player: the video and audio quality are excellent and that's good because the heart of this guitar course is its video instruction.

The 20 dvds contain step-by-step instructions that guide you on your way to become the guitar player you have always wanted to be...

Steve Krenz, your teacher, has been a professional guitar player for more than 20 years. Besides incredible guitar skills he also has the natural communication skills that make him a good teacher.

Steve starts with the basics in Session 1 and takes you step-by-step from beginner to advanced instruction. All guitar lessons are explained really well and easy to follow.

The jam along CDs are also top-notch quality and lots of fun. They are recorded by professional musicians and really sound good. The tracks come in different tempo's and you can turn the lead guitar off, so you can play the lead (slowly in the beginning, then medium, then full speed).


Here's a quick overview of what you will learn (if you want a more elaborate overview, visit the Learn and Master Guitar Website):

  • The basics: how to tune your guitar, how to hold your pick, ...
  • Basic & advanced chords: folk chords, bar chords, jazz chords, ...
  • Electric guitar techniques: bending, hammer ons, pull offs, ...
  • Strumming and finger picking.
  • Playing lead guitar and rhythm guitar.
  • Reading music and guitar tabs.
  • Ear training and music theory.
  • The scales: blues scale, pentatonic scale, major, minor, ...
  • Power chords, distortion, pedal effects, ...
  • and much, much more...

Here are some of the styles that are covered in this guitar course:

  • Acoustic guitar
  • Rock guitar
  • Classical & fingerstyle guitar
  • Blues guitar
  • Jazz guitar
  • Country guitar
  • R&B and funk guitar
  • Your own style!


You're probably thinking this guitar course will cost an arm and a leg, but...

Imagine taking guitar lessons with a private teacher every week for 10 years . Let's say you spend fifty bucks for a private lesson. Let's say you take 40 lessons a year, that's two grand a year spent in tuition fees. Multiply that by 10 years and you have spent $20,000. That's a great deal of money. That's also money well spent I happen to think, but...

But what if I told you that you can get 10 years worth of instruction, at the highest level, for about the affordable price of just five or six of those private lessons. Would that be worth it to you?  

What's more, if you decide to purchase this excellent guitar course and you are not happy with it in any way, you will be cheerfully refunded the entire price.  60 day money-back warranty!

Gibson's Learn & Master Guitar is one of the best courses I have seen. If you're looking for a quality course, something more than a brief introduction, then click on one of the following options:
