Making Real Guitar Heroes Overview

The Tutor"who's teaching the course"

Nigel Jones

"So I have been playing guitar since I was 12, which is now over 20 years. I'm a qualified guitar teacher with over 10 years experience, a member of the RGT. I have given lessons in schools and colleges across the UK, I have taught 1000s of guitar players in groups and one to one lessons; I've had many students get distinctions in grades. I'm now bringing my knowledge of guitar and experience of teaching to Rock Star Academy. I hope you enjoy my lessons....."

Synopsis"what it's all about"

This course is split into two parts, the theory and the practical.

The idea is you get all the theory knowledge you'll need to get on your way; but not so much that you'll be bored and feel lost.

We recommend doing the course in order and reading through everything but... We fully understand that everybody learns guitar in different ways. If you wanted to skip part one of the course and move on with the practical, do it but make sure you read the theory later on. At some point you will wonder why things work and we promise it will make you a better player for understanding a little theory.

It's also worth re-reading the theory a few weeks after first reading, it's sometimes easier to take in a second time.
