I have attempted to play guitar several times now, but never got very far. Even with real lessons, it just didn't click. I now have a chronic illness that keeps me at home for the most part, and with only very small amounts of energy. I picked the guitar up again recently because it is something I have always wanted to do, and thought it would be a great "pick-me-up" for my spirit, considering my situation. I can't get out for lessons, so I first picked up a couple of books with videos inside, and I wasn't making much progress. Then I came across Guitar in a Nutshell online and signed up for the free emails that you get upfront. I found it very easy to learn from them, and decided to pay for the membership. Well worth it, and at a very reasonable price! I have gotten much farther than I ever have before with my playing, and that's with only having the energy to play for 15-20 min! I now say I'd prefer this method over live lessons.

The site has a little bit of everything- video instruction (that goes nice and slow), strumming instruction (first time I've ever had that explained), drum beats, lots of songs to choose from at all levels, extras like music theory, specialty styles, etc. I have loved it, and after only a month or two, I can finally say I'm able to sit down and play a song without having to look at my fingers while I play. I'm thrilled! Thank you, Guitar in a Nutshell!

If you are like me, and find the standard way of learning to play guitar rather tedious, and well, boring, then you have not met Paul yet. I took lessons when I was much younger, and it only lasted about a year. Back then I have to say, it was a bit of a pain. One lesson per week, I had to carry my guitar to the music store where the lessons were given, and the lessons became very mundane and boring. I was learning what we all want to learn....TO PLAY SONGS. At $15.00 a lesson (hey, that was a lot of money for a kid to earn back then) I just wasn't getting what I wanted out the lessons, so I gave up. I would pick the guitar up from time to time, and I tried several other "Learn to play guitar" programs and discs....nothing had changed though, it was all still blah blah blah to me. Until I came across Guitar in a Nutshell, and Paul. I watched his first few video lessons and all I can say is ....WOW!!! Paul explains step by step what string, fret, and notes to play and how to form chords, and as I learned, there is more than one way to play a chord. I went on to purchase his video lessons, and then his song books, and I recently purchased his Blues, and fingerstyle video lessons. I am here to tell you, I am having more fun playing my guitar now than I have ever had. I have even begun creating my own songs. At my age, I may not make it to American Idol...lol, but I am totally enjoying my guitar now. Guitar in a nutshell is the easiest way to learn and have fun playing guitar.

Paul, if you're reading this...I again, thank you for an awesome program. Please do not stop, and let's all "Rock On".

John Dornellas, Fayetteville NC

I've never reviewed anything before on Amazon but this has moved to do so. I took up acoustic guitar in my mid 40's as something of a mid life crisis. I have been playing for 3 years now. I have fiddled around with many online teaching methods but stumbled across guitar-in-a-nutshell and everything clicked. Very easy to follow, bite sized chunks and I can now hold my own amongst other musicians down the pub! Very much recommended.

I honestly knew very little of how to play guitar but with this, it gave me direction in my efforts. In conjunction with his website, it made it very easy for me to get a feel of how to play guitar after only a few weeks. I know I'm not the greatest, but thanks to this I'm getting there. In it, he features strumming exercises, the most commonly used chords, and simple songs to start out on. Overall, a killer deal for $10!

Learning to play guitar can be a very frustrating experience, especially if you are beginning. I began like everyone else,trying lessons,books,videos,DVDs, and nothing seemed to work. Yes I learned chords, and could play chords, but not strum. So I tried numerous sites online, then I stumbled upon Guitar in a Nutshell. It was an amazing wake up, now I can make music, strum,finger pick, play blues, country,rock, thanks to Paul, I've become a guitarist. He now has added Guitar practice online, a program designed to take you to the next level of playing. I can honestly say no one can hold a candle to this caring instructor when it comes to teaching guitar. If you are thinking about finding an instructor look no further.

Format: Paperback
Back in 2005 I bought a guitar and tried to teach myself how to play it. I had no hope after a few months and gave it away to a friend. I was looking around for something to do and bumped into Guitar-in-a-nutshell. I knew I would be able to learn to play Guitar with Guitar-in-a-nutshell. so in May of 2010 I purchased another guitar and have been playing just about everyday since then. Thru Guitar-in-a-nutshell I have learned and I'm still learning, strumming patterns, Basic Chords and the different ways you can play them and my Guitar skills have gone thru the roof. I continue to learn a new song every couple of days. I am so happy I found Guitar-in-a-nutshell. Learning to play an instrument is such a beautiful thing and having a good tutor makes it much more enjoyable. I practice every day and push myself to learn more and more. Thank you Guitar-in-a-nutshell for coming along at the right time.

Happy customer,
Freddy Anglero
