Nine in ten guitar students drop out within the first year, according to Fender. Many get frustrated because they don't feel they're making enough progress. Others lose motivation because weekly electric guitar lessons are too long and drawn-out.
You can see why so many people lose heart if learning how to play electric guitar feels more plinky-plonky than rock & roll.
We've been listening to frustrated electric guitar players and masterminded a quick and easy way to enable you to fall back in love with playing guitar.
Our Electric Guitar Fast Track video course is your step-by-step supercharged method to learn to play electric guitar quickly. Start now and see how far you'll come within a very short while.
