I remember the week I got my first guitar … there was a party coming up and I wanted to impress my crush. She even found out that I got a guitar and a buddy told me she wanted to hear me play.
I was devastated and heartbroken, as any young guy would be, but those feelings actually inspired me to practice and practice and practice so I would never have to experience that again. From there, I took the long route to learning how to play guitar…
After years and years of practice, I achieved my lifelong goal of being a professional musician, but I always felt … I always knew that, somehow, I could have done it sooner if I had just done it differently.
After years of playing some of the biggest musicals from Southern California to New York City (even with a few Tony Award winners), I discovered the secret to really kick-starting anyone’s guitar playing.
A couple days after I had this revelation, a new student came into my studio and shared a story. His story sounded eerily familiar…
“There’s this girl in my class that I really like. I want to play her favorite Beatles song at the talent show next month, but I just got my guitar a couple weeks ago…”
If you want to learn all of the fundamental chords on the guitar, have some tricks for remembering them, and be able to play all of your favorite songs (plus — literally — countless others), then this may be the most important message you will ever read on your guitar playing journey.
I have just created a new eBook called Guitar Chord Kick-Start — a method for learning all of the fundamental guitar chords in as little as 7 days.
You see, I’ve been a professional musician for many years. I’ve come a long way from sitting in my room and trying to figure out that C Minor chord (don’t worry, you’ll learn it, too, and faster than you think!).
We’ll start with the basics of reading a chord diagram. Once you’ve got the hang of this simple, visual learning tool, you’ll be able to learn any chord and play any song. Seriously!
What does that mean? It means that you can jam with your friends, play around the campfire, and impress anybody who’s near you — especially that special person you’ve been wanting to ask out on a date. Any time you pick up your guitar, people will think you’ve been playing for a lifetime!
By learning the right technique, you’ll be making music in no time. Before you know it, you’ll look and sound like a real pro. People will dig having you around because you bring the fun and good times. You won’t just be the life of the party. You’ll BE the party!
We’ll start with a few open chords that you can use to…
