Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Acclaimed instructor/guitarist John McCarthy offers a comprehensive beginner's course in the acoustic guitar in a pick-up-and-play video lesson designed to have aspiring guitarists strumming away on the first day. After learning the proper manner in which to hold and tune the instrument, McCarthy leads viewers in a wide variety of effective tutorials that offer a closer look at chords, scales, strumming patterns, and song rhythms. Revealing close ups offer a better look at the proper technique, and free web lesson support offers the chance to get even more in depth with the lesson. Once the viewer has learned the new techniques, the opportunity to play along with a full backing band will build the confidence and skills needed to jam with others as well.
