This is Erich Andreas with YourGuitarSage and I just wanted to let you know a few things about The Ultimate Guitar Guide Part 1.
As you may already know, I’ve been a guitar teacher for over 25 years, have taught 100s of students and 1000s of lessons in one-on-one and class environments, as well as live and studio guitar work. Here on the internet, I’ve made 100s of guitar “how to” videos and have taught millions of people all over the world for several years now. I work with many artists and writers across the U.S. and I’m often times needing to cover a lot of material in a short amount of time.
I remember what it was like taking guitar lessons from different teachers and TRYING to learn from books. I remember the frustrations of wanting to learn faster, but did not have the resources or instructors that really cared about the teaching process or getting those ideas across. Because of all those experiences I made it my goal to teach in a whole new way (a way that is fun, exciting and moves along at a pace that is just right!)
So, I have assembled the most important lessons that you can learn on the guitar. I have formulated these concepts/lessons into a streamlined document (accompanied by my many videos specifically designed to support the E-book). This resource will ROCKET your productivity and fun on the guitar!
Part 1 is a culmination of all those years of finding out what I needed first and in what order. I found out that there were things that were being taught to me, that were wasting my time, while there was a ton of information NOT being shared with me. Because of that, I wanted to present a concise, no-nonsense electronic book that would allow for players to ramp their playing up VERY quickly, with a focused set of goals in sight. There is only so much time in the day, and my thought is: make your practicing count! Focus on what you do need and cut out what you don’t! Once you have mastered these essentials, THEN you can move on to other areas of focus on the guitar. Check out Part 2 when you are ready, The Ultimate Guitar Guide Part 2.
My philosophy with my students is: “If it’s not fun or rewarding, we are doing something wrong.” Music is MEANT to be fun, especially guitar. You’ll never see rock stars playing with big scowls on their faces. Why? Because they are having a blast!! And you should be too. Sure, there is dedication and practice, but I can show you how that too can be rewarding and fun.
So what is this eBook all about?
The eBook is an electronic book that you can easily download and start learning from immediately. The only thing you need is a PDF reader like “Adobe Reader” which you most likely have installed on your computer already. This book is totally interactive with video, diagrams, sound, links to all sorts of resources and complete descriptions with accompanying videos of how to master each section.
