Everyone learns differently... even aspiring musicians. When it comes to playing guitar, some prefer to hone their craft in a class while others prefer a private one-on-one instruction with a teacher. Speaking of which, a private one-on-one instruction doesn't necessarily mean getting guidance from a teacher in-person - in fact, watching a guitar instruction DVD can be just as beneficial to your playing progression. Today's guitar instruction DVDs come to you from respected music education companies like Homespun, Berklee Press, Carl Fisher and Emedia, all of which have options available in this catalog.
