Worship guitar, where you strum along to songs of worship, either on your own or with a group is easy to learn. Here's how.
Worship guitar: if you often watch and listen in admiration as someone at your church or worship group plays along on their guitar as you sing, then you've probably thought about how great it would be to be able to play yourself.
The good news (the other good news, that is) is that it's not difficult to learn. Lot's of people are put off, however, at the very early stages because they find that making chord shapes with their left hand, or getting the strumming patterns with their right hand is just too difficult.
It's not. It's just that learning guitar, like any other skill takes practice and dedication. The other thing it needs is a good tutor, and that's where Aaron Anastasi* comes in. Aaron has been leading worship in his native Southern California for 20 years and has developed what he calls 'A Truly Step-By-Step Guitar Learning System For Aspiring Christian Guitarists.'
The course focuses on teaching you the chords necessary to play songs, and on having you play the songs themselves within a couple of days, rather than on learning scales for the sake of it. Aaron also teaches you how to play 'those cool little guitar tricks that David Crowder or Tim Hughes or Martin Smith do.'
The lessons are on video, so it's very easy to watch, listen and play along with Aaron, and of course you can pause and rewind whenever you need.
Aaron says that his course* is perfect for complete beginners and also for anyone who's been playing guitar for less than a year. As well as teaching you chords and songs, Aaron has also included warm-up exercises and exercises to help you improve your 'muscle memory' – essential for getting to the point where your fingers move smoothly from one chord to the next.
Perhaps best of all, Aaron says that everyone who purchases his course has free, unlimited and direct access to him and his support team if you get stuck. And there's a 60-day money back guarantee, so if you decide it's not for you, you can cancel with no questions asked.
