Hi, I’m Doug Marks with Metal Method guitar lessons. Since 1982 I’ve been teaching people to play rock guitar with my Complete Basic Course. In the beginning my lessons were taught on audio cassette, then videocassette, now we’re on CDs, DVDs, and digital downloads.
I call it The Complete Basic Course because it reflects everything that I think you need to learn to play in a band, jam with your friends or just have fun playing music. One of the great thing about this course is it continues to evolve because of you. You tell me what you want to learn and I make that happen. I occasionally revise the course and include your requests. This has been going on for almost three decades so we’re getting pretty good at this.
Today many guitarists are learning to play by studying video and tab on the Internet. What I can offer you that the Internet doesn’t provide is structure. I can take you step-by-step through a process that has taught hundreds of thousands of people how to play guitar. When trying to learn without a plan it’s very easy to spend months going down a path that leads nowhere. It’s also possible to not understand a simple trick that’s necessary to master a technique. I’ve successfully guided thousands before you through this journey. Scroll to the bottom of this page to read student comments.
This course includes printable tab, diagrams, backing tracks, and other lesson materials.
