Description:

Play Guitar In 7 Days!

For kids, adults, and sexy senior citizens. This one-hour video is guaranteed success because it follows the logic that the human being can only think of one thing at a time. You will learn the 19 main open chords & 23 songs that will give you plenty of practice to master & perfect all 19 chords quickly & easily. Learn how to make a guitar easy to play, how to use small guitars & ukuleles for children & people with small hands. Learn the parts of the guitar & how to tune, & all the tricks that make learning quick & easy, so that you won't have any problems.

This is a breakthrough in beginning guitar because we sat down & determined how many things "all at the same time" that video lessons were requiring of students. It turned out to be anywhere from 9-12 things at once! Thats downright inhumane! It created a very large "drop-out" rate. Thats right, more than half of the people of all ages gave up & sadly, it wasn't their fault. The teaching systems were simply loading them down with too much all at once. The reason we created "Your First Guitar Lesson" was to solve this problem. We give you loads of great material, but "one-easy-logical-step-at-a-time.

Your First Guitar Lesson, July 6, 2009 By James L. Boggess Sr. This DVD is very good for the beginner, as I am. I am trying to learn the guitar on my own, with the help of this DVD I am taking a very big step forward. This DVD show's you the chords that you will need as a starting guitar player, and helps you get going on changing chords.

Video Librarian March/April 2004 by C Block page 56. "A solid introduction to guitar playing. This is recommended."

Amazon.com Review "FIVE STAR REVIEW" Excellent teacher. Very thorough!, December 27, 2002 Reviewer: Leslie A. Harris (see more about me) from Midlothian, Tx USA . When you intend to learn to play the guitar, you NEED slow. It takes time and patience to learn any instrument. Dan is very thorough and encouraging and calm. This was written for all ages. You don't need an expensive guitar to learn to play. A uke would do (4 string). This dvd is very easy to follow.

Acoustic Guitar Magazine Feb 2003 by Andrew DuBrock When you first pick up a guitar, you don't want to spend all your time focusing on theory, scales and technique mumbo-jumbo. You want to learn to PLAY the guitar, not talk about it! But instruction materials often forget this. They spoon feed you so many "character building" musical skills that the learning process becomes way too overwhelming, not to mention unbearably boring. Dan Huckabee does a great job of getting you to actually PLAY the guitar in his DVD "Your First Guitar Lesson." By the time you're done, you'll have 19 chords under your belt, You'll be able to play th 23 songs Huckabee demonstrates, and you'll have the tools to play countless more. Huckabee starts off by showing the parts of the guitar and spends some time talking about the guitar setup before teaching a few four-string chords that can be played on guitar, tenor guitar, or even ukulele. After explaining how to play the chords, he shows how to string them together to play several songs, including "Happy Birthday" and "Mountain Dew." One great thing about DVDs is that you can freeze the chord frames on the screen while you build them on the guitar, and if you have an A-B repeat you can practice "House of the Rising Sun" along with Huckabee until your neighbors are sick of it. Huckabee continues with some 5 and 6-string chords, providing a new set of songs to play with every bunch of new chords. "Your First Guitar Lesson" is well organized, with easy access to every song and set of chords on the main menu, and comes with a companion booklet that illustrates all the chords and songs on the video.

Customer Compliments

Guitar Hero, October 1, 2008 By John Kneer (Carrollton, TX) - See all my reviews My son is 15. He promised if I would buy him a guitar that he'd learn to play. I bought him the Hal Leonard Guitar Method and Guitar for Dummies. I sat down with him and together we really got headaches. I didn't find fault in the methods, but they were tedious. Next we tried the DVD "Your First Guitar Lesson" and it allowed him to experience the sensation of making music immediately. We liked it because we weren't being required to think about counting or note reading. Instead, he was changing the chords with the songs. I don't think he had the attention span for the more academic approach. I'm thanking Dan Huckabee for preventing another Guitar Dropout.

"I learned more from "Your First Guitar Lesson" than from a full year of private guitar lessons." ---Mat Hillman Leakesville MS

Amazon.com Compliment 5 of 5 people found the following review helpful: Amazon.com Review: *****(5 star rating) Great starter video for adults, January 9, 2001 Reviewer: A viewer from Twin Lake, MI United States This is a great video for people who have never had any instruction. Mr. Huckabee teaches about 3 chords at a time, showing you how to play a few songs with each. Ultimately teaching you 19 chords, and 23 songs. There is alot of information in this video, but you can pause, rewind, and watch over and over again until you understand perfectly. It is a great video for the beginner, and only costs about the price of one 1 hour private lesson. 5 star ratingPPPP

Dear Mr Huckabee, I feel greatly honored to get a kind message from you in person. I forgot to tell you that my daughter is also following "your first guitar lesson", and we're also delighted with the results on that instrument, although she is doing it at a slower pace than the violin (she is currently working on "sloop John B"). We were amazed when she started singing to the chords on the guitar. This is also useful for the violin, because in classical violin, it takes a long time before you begin to understand harmony; she hadn't yet learned to play double stops, but thanks to the guitar, she knows what chords are, not just arpegios. And now with the bluegrass fiddle chords, she has really discovered a new dimension for playing. I am also waiting to receive "beginning finger-picking guitar" (for the future) and "beginning blues guitar" (that's my taste, she may not take it up). So again, thanks for all the pleasure we get from your videos. Sincerely, Robert Ash-Sendai Japan

Well-paced and helpful instruction, September 17, 2008 By Sing n' Ski (San Francisco, CA USA) I am a vocalist and wanted to learn to accompany myself. I bought the DVD and found myself playing within an hour. I also thought it was funny (and helpful) to have the instructor tell me to turn off the vid and get practicing. The lessons built logically, and were fun to follow. The choice of material kept me interested and I have continued to play and practice. Thanks, Dan!
