Hi Andrew,

I have recently bought a guitar, and registered to GMC to take online lessons to start off.
I saw your complete begginer series (6 parts) and wondered if that is where i should start, as I cant find any other real starter lessons. (please point out if there are some lessons for real real real begginers if i have missed them)

any help is greatly appreciated.
Sean

Hi Sean, welcome to GMC!

My series is as close to a beginner series as we have so I would suggest you start with that. The idea behind first steps is that it will give you the knowledge you need to start benefiting from the rest of GMC - First steps 7 is due out soon, and I am just finishing first steps 8.

Once you have worked on those, I suggest you start looking through other GMC lessons, using the advanced search to pick out some level 1 and 2 lessons to make a start on.

Also, remember you are not on your own - the forum is an amazing resource for asking questions and getting quick answers!

Finally, although it's not everyone's cup of tea, my theory lessons might be worth a look!

Good luck!

Fantastic help guys. Thanks to both Andrew and Ivan.
I appreciate it and will definitley use the lesson plan you set out Ivan, and will be sure to check out your theory lessons also Andrew, as I guess theory is just as important as the practical when playing.

Thanks again!!

I wish I liked that tea laugh.gif
Seriously though, I'm planning on trying to be able to understand theory this year, at least a little bit...
And I can't think of any better way than to dive into your pool of knowledge smile.gif

This may sound stupid, but being new, I have no idea what the MTP is?

Not at all!

Its the "Mentored Training Programme"

Its a resource whereby some of the more experienced intermediate players are tasked with "Mentoring" a small group of beginners, you have to apply and be selected but there are some really superb intermediate players on here and its a really great initiative for beginners, I wish I'd had one put it that way!!

Anyway, heres the sign up thread, best of luck!
