In this complete beginner's course, we give you one lesson to follow per day for 30 days. If you're new to guitar this is the ultimate crash course to get you started!

  • Unit 1 | Smashing The Basics
    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.

  • Unit 2 | Let's Hit The Gym
    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.

  • Unit 3 | Getting Musical
    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.

  • Unit 4 | The Nitty Gritty
    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!

  • Unit 5 | Second Song
    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. Over the next few lessons we'll be breaking down the verse, chorus and riff, and then proceeding to put it all together so that you can play through the entire track.

  • Unit 6 | Getting Ready
    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.
