Welcome everyone! We are really excited to hang out with you guys as we take this deep musical journey together. The main thing to focus on is that We Are All Here to Help Each Other! We need to spend equal amounts of time learning from one another in the Comments Section Above as we do alone when we are practicing.

Everyone Has Something to Contribute! I don't care if you've never picked up a guitar before, or you are the best player in the world, we should all Listen to Each Other because the one thing that I've found to be true, is that everyone has something to offer!

When I listen to beginners about their learning process, their discoveries, or their favorite bands, at the very least, I learn how to be a better teacher because everyone learns differently. Most of the time, they've discovered something unique that I can apply to my own playing even after all of these years. Even better is that I may benefit from all of that, PLUS, I may discover new music that changes my life for the better, foREVer!

So don't waste any time, head to the "Lesson Comments" section below, or the "Community Forums" and introduce yourselves! You can even upload videos of you playing or demonstrating issues you may be having with a particular lesson. I'm keeping an eye out for those of you who participate the most to reward and recruit for my army of trusted educators!
Help Wanted!

Last but not least, Help Each Other! Answer questions and make comments. We can all acquire multiple lifetimes worth of invaluable information in this glorious age of technology because we can all communicate with each other on a global scale! That My Friends, Is Priceless!

Cody Chapman Digging the layout as a whole, and even as an intermediate player it's nice to start things from the beginning to refresh things in the head. Very pumped for this jourmey!

Brian Haner Sr. Hi Nancy! Generally speaking, electrics are easier to play than acoustics - but there is no reason you can't play most of this stuff on an acoustic - especially the beginning and intermediate material. : )

Nancy Meza Is there a major difference between learning with an acoustic guitar vs. an electric? (I'm a beginner and I have an acoustic guitar -- p.s. exited to learn! :]) Thank you!
