30 Day Beginner ChallengeBack to courses
Welcome to our 30 day beginner challenge course! I'm so excited to bring this course to you guys, and I'm excited to show you how quickly you'll be up and running, playing the guitar!
First up it's important to understand that with this course we are installing a habit... The habit of picking up the guitar every single day to practice. Without a doubt, throughout your guitar career, this is the single most important piece of the puzzle, and will make all the difference. Alongside that, a solid structure and focus in your daily practice is the next most important aspect to your improvement, and when you combine the two... Daily practice with a great course and structure, you simply cannot lose!
Welcome to our beginners 30 day challenge, and first up, let us say congrats for committing to your guitar playing and to this challenge. We will be showing you how to play guitar, from scratch, with our aim to instil a habit of daily practice.
Guitar gym is a term we use a lot here at Your Guitar Academy, so let's start by talking about what it means. Essentially, Guitar Gym is a range of exercises that are deliberately constructed to build your technique, skill and fluidity on the fretboard.
This is a big moment... Your first song! We will be using everything we have learnt so far to put together an entire song, from scratch, and learn it just like a pro guitarist would.
To kick off this unit, we need to catch up with a little bit of theory. Learning the major scale is absolutely crucial when it comes to understanding chords, scales, keys and pretty much everything you play on the guitar!
We will be using everything we have learnt so far to put together our next song, from scratch, and learn it just like a pro guitarist would.
You've made it to the final unit! In this last group of lessons we will be filling in some gaps, and making sure everything is sticking in your memory. We'll throw in a couple of important new chords too for good measure. Let's get started!
