At the end of this course you’ll be able to:

I designed this course as If I am a complete beginner who never touched a guitar before. So not only I will explain how to play an exercise, but I will break it down and play it with you in a very slow speed so you can follow along.  
Here are key features you will learn:
•The anatomy of the guitar.
•How to tune the strings.
•Names of the notes on each string.
•How to play rest stroke.
•How to use your thumb.
•Playing 2 voices on the guitar.
This course is designed for the complete beginners who never played the guitar before, but If you play the guitar or can strum a few chords and wants to be a finger style guitarist, this course is also for you.

Musician, Photographer
Hi, I am Hany Gamal. I live in Egypt. I studied photography and video editing at fine art college. Then I took a 2 years course with the New York Institute of Photography.
I studied guitar with The Royal School of Music, and I finished Grade 8 guitar back in 2004.
My real passion is teaching, so I teach everything I know… photography, guitar, and even Rubik’s Cube – which I can do in less than 2 minutes.
I worked as a freelance photographer, a camera-man, a video editor, and a guitar tutor at International British schools.
I run a chess club in my school where I work as a music and performing art director.
