There are no specific age requirements for membership access, although the course was specifically designed for guitar students in the general age range of 35 years old and up. We do, however, have many younger students that simply prefer to learn the classic rock, pop, blues and country music of an earlier generation. We don't check your I.D. at the door!
The progress you make on the guitar is different for everyone depending on, amount of time devoted to practice, desire to learn, and musical aptitude. The course was designed with short lessons that can each be completed daily with the goal of being able to play songs within 30 days, and becoming well acquainted with playing lead guitar within 90 days.
An acoustic or electric guitar is recommended. We would not advise a classical guitar as they are not well suited for playing rock, blues and country music. The Beginner and Intermediate Guitar Lessons courses are taught on an acoustic guitar and the Lead Guitar 101 and Cool Lick Series focus more on electric guitar, but either one will suffice. Please see Types of Guitars or Guitar Buyers Guide for more information.
Absolutely not! In fact, this course was designed for the guitar student who does not have the time, or the desire, to learn how to read music, or to learn a lot of music theory. AdultGuitarLessons.com focuses on showing the student how to play guitar by ear, by feel and by pattern, the fast and easy way!
If you are at ground zero on the guitar, the best place to get started is our Tutorials section and become familiar with basic guitar concepts such as, how to hold the guitar, how to hold the pick, how to read chord diagrams, TAB's and music charts, how to tune the guitar and more.
AdultGuitarLessons.com is a totally online guitar program for several reasons. First, to greatly reduce the costs of the course by not having to produce and ship products to our students. Second, because DVDs and books can easily become lost or damaged and have to be replaced. And third, because we are continually updating and adding to the program, which would not be possible with DVDs and books.
This course is designed for the beginner to intermediate guitar player. An advanced guitarist may not find a lot on new information here, but we are in the process of developing an advanced course.
Due to copyright concerns we are unable to provide full sheet music scores or original recordings of the songs that are taught in the course. You will be able to play most of the songs completely following the lessons, but if you want the sheet music, there are many online sources to purchase them. For listening to recordings to play along with, most any song can be found on YouTube.
