This is an Excellent Product ,

Perfect introduction to learning guitar

The instruction is perfectly-paced. Everything is explained clearly. This podcast is the perfect starting point not only for beginners, but also intermediate to advanced players who need a starting point for better practice and greater self-discipline.

This is where you want to start if you don’t have immediate face-to-face access to a instructor.

And it’s free, which is borderline preposterous.

Thanks Desi. I think this podcast would be a game changer for a lot of players out there.

Cheers

Makes you Listen

I think that the lack of video is actually a bonus as it makes you listen to the notes and chords. Excellent lessons!
