At age 64 I got the idea that I wanted to learn to play guitar. At first, I tried random tutorials on the web, but I quickly got the impression that many had just learned to play a number or two and now wanted to show how good they were! I didn't learn from that. Then I tried different evening classes, but the teachers didn't get into my situation - I couldn't do anything (not even moving my fingers as I wanted). Coincidentally, I saw James's lesson in John Denver's "Leaving on a Jetplane" and immediately fell for his systematic approach to teaching. I therefore signed up for his beginner course and was not disappointed. It was exactly what I needed: a gradual introduction to different chords - and especially how to switch between the individual chords. Some about rhythm with eg clapping exercises, so you get it all the way under the skin. I have completed the beginner course and am now on the barre course and am still very satisfied. It's still hard for me, but small gradual progress makes me still think it's fun. Therefore, my best recommendations by James and his courses. Jesper Hermansen Denmark

Yep!

Finally! I've been playing guitar for years and afraid of the dreaded "F" barre. Now I'm learning how to play more than "F" and strengthening my hand.

As a very raw beginner to guitar, and a "senior" at that, I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience with the 7 Day Beginner Challenge. The course has been well designed for beginners at any age, and James presents and teaches in a way that is easy to pick up on. A feature I have used is one that allows you to go back and re-do a certain day, for instance maybe repeat Day 5, for re-enforcement. And, yes, when all was said and done, I did learn to play Satisfaction by The Rolling Stones. I am also in the middle of the Learn Guitar Once and For All Course. It is a great course and I am making great progress. I love the work James has done in putting this together. I give "GoodGuitarist" 5 stars for sure. Thanks James.
