Why Learn Guitar at RhythmStrummer.com?
With free stuff available online, why should we expect you to come to us? Why wouldn’t you just hunt around Youtube for someone with a video camera and an urge to teach Wild Thing?
Fair questions. And here’s a partial list of why we think you’ll be much happier in our care than in roaming around the wilds of cyberspace looking for what you want.
Authentic Easy Renditions of the Greatest Songs
First, our guitar lessons are pretty darned good (and cheap!). If you’ve seen our free guitar lessons you’ll notice that they are clear, effective, detailed and fun. The average lesson takes about four hours to shoot, some much longer. (We really doubt that the free folks are putting in that much time.) Also, whatever song you're learning from us we’re going to get you as close to the original version as a beginner or intermediate player can get.
We’re Unique, (and the Best)
Second, we know of no other site on the Internet dedicated to teaching guitarists how to play easy rhythm guitar versions of songs while singing along. Of course, we’ll also teach you the classic leads (like the Day Tripper riff, which you’ll get in 4 different keys no less!), but we don’t think you’ll have much fun with any song until you can bang out the rhythm and chords. Our main focus is to help you do that.
One Stop Shopping
Third, with hundreds of tools, techniques, riffs, and songs at one site, all carefully presented by professionals, you get very high quality One-Stop Shopping.
Dedicated and Entertaining Teachers
Fourth, our instructors are the best of the best, from around the country. They are professional teachers and performers, entertaining and in love with teaching and playing the guitar. Did you see the guy on You Tube teaching a free lesson on "How to Play in 5/4" but he was teaching a song in 4/4? Or all the Beatles songs being taught with the wrong chords and rhythm? We’re detail-oriented professionals and we won’t mislead you.
We Want You to Learn
Fifth, unlike many Internet music companies, we actually care about your progress. We strive to create a light-hearted, supportive environment so you can relax and enjoy learning how to play guitar. We are patient and believe that fun is central to the learning experience.
Sixth, the people who wrote these great songs deserve to be paid. So we pay them, unlike the vast majority of Internet teachers who are ripping these artists off, and who live in constant danger of being shut down. We’re playing fair, so you don’t have to worry about us disappearing on you.
Tons of Easy Songs & Easy Techniques
Finally, with unlimited access to our Easy Guitar Technique Library you can learn pretty much anything you want about acoustic guitar. And if there’s something you’d like us to include that’s not there, let us know and we’ll try to find an expert to shoot a lesson on that subject.
We’ll Make Your Life Better
Really finally, we are all serious guitar players. We know that a life with a guitar is far better than a life without one. And if we can make your life better, we’ll feel even better about ours. Helping you play these songs on the guitar will make that happen.
Thanks for checking in! We hope you’ll join the RhythmStrummer community. You’ll like it here. And we’ll like having you.
