Recommended Posts

Looking forward to learning the Guitar Steve's way.

Any advice for calming myself down and not expecting to much to fast?

1 Steve likes music reading over tab, tab is only in first few lessons. And yes a couple of mistakes in it.

2 DVDs never updated so any reference to LMG websites just come here.

3 don't skip around till atleast session 10 , sessions 1 to 9 are the foundations. 

4 check my Signature below for the link to Words of Guitar Wisdom by Steve. 

P.S don't forget the jam a long CD tracks 

P.P.S session 1 is just to get your hands moving,  move on to session 2 quickly

#3 in what @Eracer_Team-DougH said is very important.  Of course, all of what Doug said is important! 😉 But don't skip around and don't dilute your studies by bringing in other material.  Sessions 1-9 are, again as Doug said, foundations for any genre of music you want to play.  Sessions 10 and above you start specializing in Blues, Jazz, Country, etc.  Then, if you want, start to look at courses in your favorite type of music to augment your studies.  As our leader always says, "Learn All You Can".

While you're waiting for that special brown box, you can be thinking about your practicing environment. To get you started, here are Steve's suggestions:

I recommend not thinking you will learn fast. You will learn based on your effort.

Stay focused on Steve's course. Minimize the temptation to grab every piece of guitar info out there. Steve is enough for the next couple years if you just focus on the course. Say the notes like Steve recommends, it will help in the end.

Learn and play songs right away. There is nothing better to learn and encourage you then hearing the sounds coming from the guitar.

Don't stare at your hands all the time. It is ok when learning a new form, but not for playing. Pro's look at their hands only during something technical. You should be a strumming chord monster in the next year.

Don't stop because you think you are stuck. You are still learning. Move to something else then come back to what you think you couldn't do. You might be surprised. 

Let it rip. Play with reckless abandon after you learned the basic technique of course.

Feel the music and have fun with it!
