The Foundation Course - Level 1

1. Introducing The Guitar

Module Overview

In this first series of videos, Bobby and Nick take you from never before having picked up a guitar to being able to play some classic songs in just a few short lessons.

You will learn: The anatomy of the guitar and the names of the open strings; lots of essential chords and how to change between them; how to strum, plus many popular chord progressions and classic songs. Remember, you get out what you put in, so be sure to practice regularly. However, when you’re starting out learning guitar, it’s natural to experience some soreness in your fingertips. Please do not play through pain. If you feel discomfort at any point, please stop. Rest assured your fingertips will soon toughen up.

Before we learn anything on the guitar, it’s important that you know the anatomy of the instrument. Here, in our first video lesson, Bobby and Nick show you the main types of electric and acoustic guitars and give you a basic run down of what everything’s called and what its function is.
