Taking private guitar lessons is the best way to really learn how to play the guitar, and ensure that you're learning the instrument properly. It also allows you to learn what songs you want, even if there is no sheet music available for it, or no resources online to learn it. How fast you improve depends on how much you practice. I have a set curriculum that I like to follow, developed over the past 20 years of teaching, but I do allow students to bring in songs that they want to learn, as long as they're not too difficult.

If you're interested in learning how to play guitar, but don't want to spend money on private lessons to find out whether or not you like playing, check out the lessons I have posted under this menu item. Each of the "Beginner Guitar Lesson" pages includes a video, and audio file, and pictures. The video shows me demonstrating how to play the chords and playing through the exercises a few times with explanations of what you need to focus on when practicing. The audio file has less in the way of tutorials and mostly consists of me playing the exercises 8 - 10 times each, and is meant to be a practice tool for you to play along with once you've watched the video.
