This summer, I have decided to try and learn to play the guitar. Playing the guitar has always been one of the things that I wanted to learn, but I just never took the opportunity to do so. So I decided to search the internet for the best guitar courses online and the one that came up most often was a course called Learn and Master Guitar. It was a little pricey, but it had good reviews so I decided to buy it anyway. Read on for my thoughts on the course.
Learn and Master Guitar is taught by professional guitarist Steve Krenz. Steve is an experienced guitar teacher and I really enjoyed his pacing and teaching style. The complete software course consists of 20 DVDs, 5 Jam Along CDs, and a huge workbook. The first thing that I noticed when I received my package in the mail was how professionally everything was put together and the quality of all the materials. Everything about the course screamed quality to me.
The lessons did a nice job of teaching of teaching me the guitar basics. In the beginning, I learned about proper guitar position, optimal finger and fret placement, and special exercises designed to help my fingers adjust to playing the guitar. Over time, you will learn more advanced topics like strumming techniques, advanced chords, reading music and how to play different genres of music like blues, jazz and rock and roll. The included Jam Along CDs allowed me to simulate playing alongside a real band which I found to be really enjoyable. It is a fun method that takes what I learned in the lessons and gives me additional practice to improve my skills.
The Learn and Master Guitar forums are also quite good and there are a lot of active posters. I had a couple of questions about the course and I was able to get answers to my them by using the search function. I also noticed that Steve Krenz himself is active on the forums and if I ever have any questions for him, I will be sure to ask.
I have really been enjoying the Learn and Master Guitar Course and my guitar technique is getting pretty good now. Although the course is kind of expensive, I still think it is a worthwhile investment for any serious guitar learner. It is still more cost effective and convenient then finding a guitar instructor and taking private lessons. Learn and Master Guitar is backed by a 60 day money back guarantee so don’t be afraid to try it out.
