Product Overview


Get started playing electric guitar and have fun doing it! The key to success on a new instrument is motivation, and this lesson has you making cool music immediately - inspiring you (or your kids) to practice and improve quickly.

After introducing you to the parts of the instrument and demonstrating how to tune up, get good tone, hold the pick properly and play your first chords, Adam Traum gets beginners playing a groovy lick that will take you through an entire blues/rock chord progression in the key of E.

You'll learn the basics of soloing and simple improvisation on single and double strings using bluesy riffs that you can "mix and match."

Adam and Martin Keith provide rhythm backup for practicing your newly learned licks. Then it's on to the key of A and a standard "Chuck Berry" rock 'n' roll rhythm pattern using one-finger chords and a right-hand damping effect.

By the time you finish this starter lesson you'll be playing bluesy grooves and will be ready to move on to more skills and techniques. Start your electric guitar journey today!
