Guitar Lessons: Beginner
How good of a guitar player could you be a year from now?
If dedicated enough, is it a possibility to become a really impressive guitar player within a year? I've known someone who has had their guitar for 20 years and they can barely play fluently. I'm a very good and fast learner - I think, if I put my mind to it can become a good player of the guitar but I would appreciate your honesty in telling me if it is realistic of me to think that I could become a REALLY GOOD, and i mean 'really' good guitar player within a year. I'm not asking for your encouragement or a confidence boost, I'm asking for your experience in teaching people, has anybody progressed beyond boundaries within a short amount of time? please let me know thanks
Playing the guitar is a relatively simple process (very much like fixing a tyre) it involves 19 basic moves (in order to cover all musical styles), so *playing the guitar* in a short period of time is very possible.
With the right kind of training remarkable results can be produced.
We encounter two types of students:
(a) Internally motivated
(b) externally motivated
The Internally motivated students *make it* the others don't.
NOW the PROBLEM!!!
While learning the necessary skills (motor skills) to play the guitar can be achieved in a short period of time, it takes many years to learn about music (all of your life in fact, music is limitless).
The fact that a person can perform various skills on a guitar does not necessarily mean they are playing any meaningful music, they may be in fact a very well trained robot.
There's two level's to reach :
1. To be able to play what you hear in your head.
2. To make sure what you are hearing is worthwhile playing.

Rave Reviews for Express Guitar:
|As a student of Mike Hayes since 1999, I have found his teaching methods and products to be first class. Whatever style or area of music I have been interested in, he has provided me with useful information, advice and study materials. His style of teaching and teaching products enabled me to progress through his guitar course far quicker than I ever imagined. He also helps in teaching yourself to find and develop your own style of music. Mikeís teaching gives his studentís the ability to become useful musicians, not just guitarists.

This course teaches us how to learn, how to retain, and how to recall information quickly. This entire program is built around "connected learning" with key phrases, picture words ( yes there is such a thing ) and the most dynamic personal motivator I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

The course is varied, in-depth and well-structured, making learning and comprehension fast, thorough and enjoyable. Itís a great way of learning, as you can pace yourself and move onto the next stage when you feel competent. I find this course both innovative and inspirational. I find myself leaving Mikeís lessons with the determination to reach my new
