What you’ll learn

  • The goal of this course is to teach you the necessary skills to play beginner guitar. This includes how to hold and tune the guitar, how to play single notes, and chords. The material covered in this course is the fundamental building blocks that playing guitar is built on. With some work these videos will help you to have a solid foundation for your guitar playing. Like most things in life, getting off on the right foot is important, and playing guitar is no different.

Welcome to this Beginner Guitar Course. Through this six video course you will learn the skills necessary to start playing guitar. If you have never played guitar or any other musical instrument before that is ok, if you slowly work your way through the videos. Making sure to practice what you have learned before moving on, I know that you can master the guitar in no time.

This course is six main videos long and begins with the common terminology used when talking about the guitar…what is the neck?…What are frets?

Then we will show you how to tune the guitar so that it is playing the notes that it should. From there we get into actually playing the guitar. First we take a look at playing first position notes. This is just a fancy term for playing single notes with all of your fingers. Guitar is similar to typing at a computer, you might find that it is fine to get by with only using 2 fingers and pecking around, but you will find that you can type faster and more smoothly if you learn how to use all of your fingers together.

After learning how to play single notes we take a look into playing more than one note at a time, which is called a chord. We will teach you to play open chords, which are the basic chords that comprise a large majority of acoustic guitar music. There are many different types of chords but will learn how to play what is called major and minor chords. These two types of chords are very common in music and are huge basis for many songs. Along with learning the notes to play a chord we also take a look at the groove, or rhythm that accompanies chords. This rhythm is called strumming, and it is helpful to learn as you learn to play your first chords.

Then we move into a little bit harder but still manageable area of moveable scale patterns. We will take a look at the major scale as well as the blues scale. These are simple shapes on the guitar that you can memorize, and can then be moved all up and down the neck to give you the major and blues scales starting on any note. We will talk about what keys are and how you can use your moveable scale patterns to play the scales in any key.

Lastly we will take a look at Bar Chords. Bar chords are a little bit trickier than open chords but they have the same advantage as the moveable scale patterns, as one chord shape with your hand can be moved all over the guitar to allow you to play any number of different chords.

Armed with this knowledge, I know that you can work on these guitar principles and be playing guitar in no time. It may seem daunting at first, but broken up into manageable pieces you can learn to play the guitar. I hope that the things that this course covers are interesting to you, so that together we can help you start playing guitar today.

    I can definitely see this course helping breaking through that initial barrier when it comes to learning a programming language. I’m positive I’ll finish it and hopefully master python by then.

  2. Abdallah Galal Abouhussein

    I would like to share my personnel experience, i`m very pleased and happy for taking this impressive course because Dr. Angela always makes it simple and easy to understand and always makes a precaution section before or after any bug that may appear to some students and also write or record the solution for us, and each word she said is very real and easy to understand.
    Thanks Dr. Angela

    Very good course. Dr Angela explains things very clearly. The exercises are interactive and helpful.

    Angela’s voice is like ASMR in most lessons. So you won’t lose focus?

  4. Jaime Sánchez Blanco

    Every concept is very well explained so you can assimilate it, and the teacher insists in practicing daily to get the habit of programming. It really motivates to keep studying and practicing every day.

  5. Bradley Carouthers

    3 days in and I’ve already learned more than other training programs where I’ve put months in. Her teaching style is both efficient and effective.

    Edit: Now on day 29 and the course has held up my expectations and hopes. The rise in complexity is not too sharp, and every day feels like an accomplishment. Angela takes her time to explain things without rushing, yet is able to pack tons of information in nuggets of time.

    Still recommend supplemental exposure for a more wholesome grasp. Though, this should be quite enough

  6. Tommy Prévost

    Very good course.

    PROs: lots of coding exercises, clear explanations, great examples, adapted to 2021’s reality.

    CONs: past the first 30 lessons, many similar coding hands-on.

  7. Quang Tu

    I love all the lectures and challenges of this course. I finally find myself in love with coding. This is definitely a fun course. Thank you Angela for this great course.

  8. Fortunate Eze

    This course is nothing short of AMAZING. The level of love and sincere desire to see students succeed present in this course is a rare sight. This course is fun, it’s challenging, it’s suspense-filled, it makes you feel good about yourself solving those challenges. You don’t take this course and memorise codes, you take it and you know what you’re doing because you literally do it yourself.

    It couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that Angela brought out her whole heart, time, energy and resources to give us a course that if priced based on it’s value, many of us certainly can’t afford. I mean, she kept advising and encouraging us to keep going, because she knows the road could get bumpy, she made a few jokes and used funny animations so we smile along the way keeping it fun. Why some people can’t see this and would rather subscribe to trying to bend courses to fit their own personal preferences is beyond me, but I guess people will always be people.

    Dear Angela, I cannot speak for everyone but I certainly can speak for myself and I’m saying thank you. The efforts you put into making this course outstanding didn’t go unnoticed.

    Let as many of us as appreciate your efforts make you happy and energize you to create more life changing courses for us.

    Cheers.

    Just the course fits me. Learn by doing, it is easy to start and just follow the flow and at day 15 you realized how to program in Python. Then the magic happen. I am on day 27 and I am looking forward to start a new section everyday.

  10. Caspar Cheng

    Angela is my favourite teacher on Udemy, her courses always come with clear and concise demonstration, make it really easy to understand the content. Meanwhile, she also provide a lot of tips to encourage us moving further on the way of coding. I’m definitely a super fan of her. I had finished her web development boot camp and now I’m learning Python 100 days of code. This course is amazing as she provided one particular project for each day’s learning, which is, really useful and handy. Also, those projects are really interesting and won’t let me feel disappointed about myself. Although some of them are a little bit difficult, they’re still resolvable after some struggling and searching online. I’ll recommend this course for those who really want to learn Python well and write real python projects from scratch!

  11. Jonas Weber

    The course was awesome in the first half! Really helped me to get back to programming and learning new techniques. Also the course got way to much focused on web development in the second half, which I’m not really interested in and is redundand to your dedicated web development course. The lack of videos in the last quarter was rather sad. I really would’ve liked some video explanations for pandas and matplotlib. The challenges and capstone projects were great and challenging!
    All in all I can really recommend this course for beginners and those who want to learn python and/or get back to programming!

  12. Rohit Prasad

    Angela is the best teacher I have ever experienced. The way she explains all the topics and makes use of it in the projects is commendable. Thank you so much Angela for this course.
