An overview of the course:
Welcome! Thanks for joining me on what is going to be a great and amazing journey of discovery! This is a course designed to set you up so you can play in groups or bands, as well as on your own. Whatever your goal is, this course is designed to help you to learn the basics of guitar quickly.
There are two things I’d like to tell you upfront:
The first important thing to note is this…
Time = Results.
The more time you put in, the better results you get. But it doesn’t have to be hours and hours. The secret to learning guitar, and it’s actually very simple.
Jerry Seinfeld is arguably one of the most successful comedians of our time. He ran his smash hit show Seinfeld year after year without ever running short of material. So how did he do it?
He used a system whereby he would aim to write ONE joke EVERY day. That’s it – just one joke. Not five, not ten… just ONE.
Consider playing guitar for 15 minutes once a day the same as writing down one joke. Once you’ve practiced, you place a big red cross over that day on your calendar… and after a few days of doing this a chain will form. The system then becomes about not breaking the chain, rather than putting in practice time.
This is the key: don’t break the chain. A little bit of practice, every single day. In terms of this course, what we’re committing to is this:
15 minutes of practice time, each and every day, for the next 8 weeks.
The second most important thing is the WAY you practice. And I want to tell you that if your fingertips feel sore for the first two weeks, don’t worry – that’s normal and you’re doing it properly!
