How to Play the Guitar - Volume I, is a guitar tutorial that makes it easy for absolute beginners to learn to master the instrument. Developed by a professional guitar player and trainer, this multimedia tutorial takes you step-by-step through the fundamentals of playing blues, rock, folk, arpeggios, and even classical music on the electric or acoustic guitar. The lessons are designed for guitar enthusiasts with no prior musical knowledge. All lessons are written in both tablature and standard musical notation. You'll learn how to move fingers of the left hand while playing simple, repetitive patterns with the right hand. Recreating the atmosphere of a private guitar lesson, the program covers common mistakes encountered by most students, including difficulties in keeping rhythm, fingering, and musical interpretation. Each lesson is progressively more difficult, and builds on prior lessons.
