Watch the Guitar 201: Breakthroughs online guitar lesson by Rich Maloof from Guitar 201: Breakthroughs
Why Guitar 201? We hear from a lot of people who are really excited when they first get started on guitar, but then get bogged down. We took our cues from talented friends and TrueFire beginning students who have some beginning skills but get frustrated with things that keep them from progressing.
We're going to get you over the hump. We also want to clear up misunderstandings about troubling little things that can keep you from getting through songs you want to play or playing well with other people. We're going to take your skill set to the next level — all with a very minimal amount of music theory and tech talk. We're also going to do a lot of troubleshooting and work through the problems a lot of people run into in the early stages of playing.
This is your sophomore year — and by the end of it, you'll be getting through songs more fluently, playing with other people confidentally, and having a great time exploring new possibilities on the instrument.
