I picked up guitar a few months ago when the opportunity arose to take 8 weeks of free group classes. I made really fast progress, however, when the classes ended I felt a little unmoored in what I should be doing when I practiced to the point where all progress grinded to a near standstill luckily I found this podcast. Paul is great, he's very knowledgeable, and understands how to explain concepts, ideas, and training techniques in a way a beginner can understand. I ended up joining BGA academy after cruising through 50 episodes of the podcast in 4 days. It's going great, I highly recommend checking out the podcast whether you're looking for lessons or just ideas on how to progress. Every time I listen to an episode I can't wait to get home and pick up my guitar.
Paul does a great job teaching listeners about playing guitar through a well organized podcast about a structured way to learn guitar.
Paul does a great job walking beginner guitar players through a structured approach to learning. His podcast feeds off his BGA website and community that I recently joined. His knowledge, relatability, and great personality make learning fun. I found this podcast and because of it am now a member of Beginner Guitar Academy. I’m loving this podcast and his great content on his website and BGA community. Thank you Paul for the unique, interactive, and fun approach to helping beginners learn the good habits to keep them motivated to learn the guitar. The last thing you’ll get with Paul is a dusty guitar 😉
THE single best guitar podcast available. Short and to the point, yet packed with useful information.
If you’re looking for a beginning or restarting point for learning to play the guitar - this is it! I started with Paul’s podcast, checked out his Amazon book, and joined his academy online. What’s great about Paul’s podcast and instruction is that it saves me time by keeping practice lessons focused - I’m not searching all over YouTube clicking on the next shiny thing. I don’t have to think about what to practice next, Paul has already done the search work for me, and his podcast reinforces those basics and gives me ideas on what to explore next.
I can’t say enough at how easy the lessons are. I’m now on my second month taking the online course and have learned so much. Stop waisting you’re time on YouTube trying to pause and play random lessons. This is a structured and very simple guitar lesson structure if you have 15 minutes a day or 1 hour a day. It’s allot of fun with a community to encourage and ask questions! You won’t be disappointed, I love Paul’s teaching techniques and his quick response to every question. Great job Paul!!!
