I’ve been teaching guitar lessons for over 20 years, and in that time I’ve developed a quick and simple method for learning the fundamentals of playing the guitar. 
In this class, you will have 50 different lessons, each about 3 minutes. All you have to do is watch one lesson a day, and then spend some time practicing the concept in the lesson. After 50 days you will be able to play the chords to any song, in any key, and you will be comfortable with any chord. 
Topics covered include: 
•Choosing the right guitar
•Differences in electric and acoustic guitars
•Parts of the guitar
•Accessories for the guitar
•String names and numbers
•Using a tuner to tune your guitar
•Tuning your guitar by ear
•Holding the pick
•Strumming the guitar
•Rhythmic strumming
•Finger Picking
•Half-steps and frets
•Octaves and dots on the guitar
•Reading chord block diagrams
•Switching chords
•Barre chords
•All the common open chords
•8 songs for you to practice with!
•And much, much more!
And of course, once you sign up for this class, all my other classes are yours at steep discounts!

Praise for classes by Dr. Jason Allen:
•”Without a doubt the best explanation and east of use that one can get. It leaves you enough room to go explore. The classes go by quickly, so you can be on your way to being proficient. What are you waiting for!” 
•”Amazing – Seriously Loved It! I took all his courses and have to say I’m so happy! Learned loads! Jason is an awesome teacher!”
•”I have never had any formal training in music at all. Trying to learn all the notes and how everything translated was a serious challenge. After going through this class, Dr. J has totally brought down the barriers. The content was very useful and was easy to grasp for me.”
•”I like these courses because you can get up and running quickly without having to spend hours of time wading through TMI (too much information!). Jason hits the high points but shows you what you need to know. Thanks!”
•”I’ve watched many other videos on scales and chords before, however, this one has been the best. I now understand minor scales and chords and even how to analyze songs. It really gave me the confidence to start producing music because I feel like I have some structure and guidelines to follow. AWESOME!” 
•”Clear and Informative – Jason has a clear uncluttered style (with the important dashes of humor) of presentation that is focused on the important key aspects of this course. Recommended for those starting out!”
•”Dr. Allen does it again with his music theory series. This course really opened up everything I learned from the 1st section, and now I understand more about the composition side of things for music. I highly highly recommend this course to anyone!!! Really opened my eyes to many things I wasn’t aware of.”
•”The Best Teacher Ever, who makes you understand the ins & outs of Music Theory by all means without giving what you don’t want to know.”
