A Look Inside Guitar Tricks
Next you might want to look at the lessons because he was just teaching a song. So when you look at lessons most people want to start here with the core learning system. There are a lot of other things you can see but let’s just start here.
See this is the kind of structure you want. You start here with the guitar fundamentals, level one and level two, and then from there once you’ve gone from those you choose which style you want.
Here it says you can choose blues, country, or rock and roll. Let’s have a look at the guitar fundamentals. So it list exactly what you are going to learn here. Chapter one, two, three, four. Let’s start the course. Actually let’s just start a bit further in. The first cords c and g. Of course you want to go from the right order but if you know certain things you may want to skip ahead.
Guitar Tricks Video Lesson: So first of all let’s talk about what is meant by the word chord. What makes a chord?
Shaun Letang: As you can see these are the fundamentals but as you go along there a lot more advanced stuff and you can basically pick up where you’re ready. Other than that you can go here and pick songs. They got a lot of songs and as you see you can pick the genre you like. So if you’re into jazz music you can do a lot more jazz stuff. If you’re into classical you can do that etc.
Here’s a list of some of the songs you get and the tutors. How easy it is and there stats; you can click here for a full song list.
All right the last thing I want to show you is… there are a few other features, I’m just going for the main stuff so you can get an idea of if it’s for you or not.
One of the features that I personally like is the forums. So basically if you want to get advice from people you can go into the forums and have a talk. Here you just talk about general music related stuff and other things you can get techniques, you can get tips from other people that have been playing guitar longer than you. And yer, just generally make friends with other guitarist and people that are into the same sort of things that you are.
