Guitar Lessons: Beginner

Amazing step by step instruction to help you strum your guitar better in minutes.




I just would like to know if there are any tricks to use or help you strum better?


Strumming is a very common problem! A really good idea is to make up a *shaker* using a plastic juice container quarter filled with rice - with your *strumming* hand, move the shaker in a back and forth motion - pay close attention to the *natural accents* you are producing with the shaker. (remember to KEEP TAPPING YOUR FOOT). You can do this *shaker* practice along with your favorite songs - don't worry about how to do it, just play (shake) along with whatever feels natural.

Next play this same rhythm on the guitar using muted strings (fingers over the strings but not pressed down). Keep your foot tapping and listen for the accents. Again, because you are not playing any chord shapes (simply making a percussive sound to imitate the shaker) you will be able to play along with any song.

Finally try your new rhythm with your favorite chord progression.

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. Mike’s teaching gives his student’s 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. It’s 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 Mike’s lessons with the determination to reach my new goals.
