Spottyboy music’s Beginner Electric Guitar method has been written and refined over many years, and developed from real live feedback from many guitar students and teachers. 
The method is gradual and progressive, focusing on one or two key concepts per lesson, whilst providing fun pieces and exercises to play through.
