Guitar Lessons and a Giveaway!

Wow how's that for a title!  So first off I want to welcome our newest sponsor Guitar with Dean.  I know, I know, he doesn't really count as a true sponsor because he is my husband BUT I think you will like him anyway. ;)

Guitar with Dean

So a little more about his words.

So tell me how you got started playing the guitar?

"You already know this, why do I have to answer these questions? lol" (I nudge him here and remind him that you do not know all of this) "Okay, okay...I started playing air guitar when I was a kid, like every normal young boy.  By high school I wanted to play the real deal.  I took a class for one semester and I was hooked."

So you have been playing for a long time, you must be really fantastic.

I actually have only been play steadily for a few years now.  After my high school class I was left in the dark a bit.  I could play a bit here and there but none of it made sense, I mean really made sense.  A few years ago I started playing a little here and there.  Pretty soon I was figuring out a lot of information that wasn't shared in my high school class.

What made you decide to make a beginning guitar program?

I had the idea to make an easy to learn guitar program a while back but I wanted to hone my skill and understanding more.  I want to make the guitar easy for anyone to learn but also provide them with enough knowledge that they have a deep understanding of how it all works.  Not many programs show and teach you how everything is inter-related on the guitar.

What does your program cover and where can I purchase it?

In the program we talk about music theory, guitar theory, CAGED cords, and fret board understanding.  Its simple enough that both kids (with adult help if needed) and adults with no previous experience will easily be able to understand and retain the information.  You can purchase the full 11 week program on my personal blog Guitar with Dean or through my Etsy shop.


If you have any questions you can contact dean at

Dean is offering a complete beginning guitar course for FREE to one reader!!!  Isn't he awesome! :)
