Watch the SECTION 1: Getting Started online guitar lesson by Susan Mazer from Hands-On Guitar: The Beginner's Guide

Beginning lessons are the most important lessons you can take because it’s easy to start off on the right foot but it’s really hard to break those bad habits once you have them. In these lessons I’ll get you started buy introducing the parts of the guitar, how to hold the guitar, proper right and left hand technique, and how to tune up. I’ll even tell you what to look for when buying your first guitar. You’ll have everything you need to get started. Print out all the charts as we go along and you’ll have a workbook to accompany the lessons.
