Many people tell me they want to play the electric guitar like…… Hendrix, Van Halen,or any other guitar legend.. They want to be a guitar wizard, but they don’t look forward to the years of learning.

How long do you think it would take you to learn the guitar? Most people might say years, but that just isn’t true. Especially in these days of computers and the internet. What do computers and internet have to do with learning to play the guitar? Everything.

Learning to play the guitar with a software program is without a doubt the easiest and quickest way to learn guitar. Some online courses offer hundreds of hours of video tutorials covering everything from the basics, to advanced playing. You can learn to play lead guitar, fingerstyle guitar, bass and every other style of guitar playing. You learn by hundreds of videos, games and even playing along with other tracks, great training if you plan to play in a band.

Learning to play the guitar using a software program has some very important advantages. Its like having a teacher available when you have time to play. You can watch an accomplished player and learn by copying what he or she is doing. Unlike conventional lessons, you can learn to play in a short time. Ive seen people learn to play pretty well, in a couple of weeks.

Many of the better software guitar courses offer interesting current songs to play as opposed to playing boring standards like “On top of Old Smokey”. Its a great feeling to be able to play your favorite songs. Investigate the best programs and see what they offer. Most will offer an amazing amount of lessons and songs. A local instructor could never compete with what you will find online. It is without a doubt the best way to learn to play guitar, and you will be enjoying playing in a very short time.
