Most beginners believe that they need to know how to read music, understand theory, struggle through boring exercises and learn hundreds of chords to play rock guitar. NOT SO!
Guitar is the most popular instrument on the planet because it's the easiest instrument to learn how to play. And rock guitar is one of the easiest style of music to play - thousands of popular rock songs can be played with just a few strumming patterns and a cool riff or two.
Learn those few chords, strums and riffs, along with the basics of holding and tuning a guitar, and you too will be able to play hundreds of your favorite rock songs. And that's what Jump Start Rock Guitar is all about - a quick, easy, fun and interactive approach for learning how to play rock guitar.
Jump Start Rock starts you off with a series of video lessons showing you how to tune up, hold the pick and position your hands. In your very first practice session, you'll learn your first rock riff and immediately start jamming along with the instructor in a playalong lesson with a practice rhythm track. Over the next series of lessons, you'll continue to learn new riffs and practice them in more playalongs with rhythm tracks. Next up, you'll learn rock's most useful chord- the "power chord" and how to play it all over the fretboard. Then you'll get a grip on the five most useful chords in popular rock music; the E, A, D, C and G chords. Finally, you'll learn the blues-rock scale that everyone uses to solo and improvise with (and we mean EVERYONE from Hendrix to Van Halen to Stevie Ray Vaughn!). Get a handle on these guitar lessons and you'll know enough to be dangerous - and that's a good thing!
