On a continuous basis people ask me how I learned to play guitar. I always respond with “Lots and lots of practice and hardwork.” When I was just starting out with guitar instruction, it was hard work. I sat at home with some tablature I printed out, and started learning to play Counting Crows. It took me soooo long to get good. My problem was that I didn’t actually have any beginner guitar instruction. I was a young man who had no plans in high school and had lots of time. I guess it was fine for me at the time, but I could’ve learned more in weeks than I did in years!
It would have helped me out so much if I had someone to show me how to hold my pick, tune my guitar, do a proper hammer-on, alternate different picking patterns, and basically take me through everything step by step. Even though I had “private lessons” later on, I was only able to get as much instruction from an instructor for 2 hours per week when I took a guitar class at my local college. Don’t get me wrong, I really liked the teacher, and his advice and techniques that he taught me were awesome, but always wanted more time for instruction.
Some guitar programs start at $300, which is prohibitively expensive. However, I recently had the chance to review Guitar SuperStars and I absolutely love their guitar instruction program. It’s also under $50 . These guys offer tons of stuff for that price, too:

Great jam machine to play along with music tracks in specific genres, tempos, and keys. This improves your playing so much, and allows you to build your stage improvisational skills.
