The 80/20 Guitar Course: 20 Essential Lessons to Become a Great Guitar Player

Learn to play guitar and write music in as little as 30 Days by optimizing what you learn and using your practice time efficiently.

In this course we'll break down the 20 most critical guitar concepts into 2 sections.

  • Music Theory
  • Guitar Technique

Within these two category's, there are 10 lessons each.

We'll call each lesson an "input." The goal is to choose the 20 most important "inputs" that give us 80% of our "output." In our case, our output is our direct ability to play guitar and understand music. By focusing on 20 most important topics, this will allow us to build a solid guitar foundation in the most efficient and effective way possible. Just by joining this course, you will also get access to the discussion forums and additional free video content. So, congratulations to you!
