Anyone can learn...
If you've never played an instrument before, everything
will feel awkward in the beginning. As you spend TIME with
the guitar you'll find that your hands will feel more comfortable
with each week. With chords, for example, you'll find that
what felt like an impossible reach becomes easy with just
a few weeks of playing. Like a good friend, the more TIME
you spend with the instrument the better you will know it
and the easier it will be to play.
TIME, as you may have noted, is the biggest element in
learning an instrument. A good teacher can coach you, correct
your technique, show you shortcuts in finger movements and
in thinkingˇ but even with the best teacher in the world,
how you progress with the instrument rests in your hands.
I've written an article describing in detail how to play
'effortlessly.' You can request it FREE
from with a free Newsletter subscribtion.
If you play the guitar now, or any other instrument, keep
at it. I have heard it said that if you spend 20 minutes a
day on any subject you can master it. If you don't playˇ it's
never too late to start. I've had students start playing at
age 80 and older!
I even had a student with such severe arthritis that she
could only move two fingers on her left hand. She had wanted
to play the guitar all her life. April was perhaps the most
excited and happy student I've taught. We sang songs using
only two finger chords. It meant the world to her to play
the songs she loved. So YESˇ you can play too!
In 2001, I made the first Worship Guitar Class video.
Now there are three volumes, and they will all be in DVD
format too. I had no idea they would take off like they
have. In 2002, I stopped taking new students and finally
stopped teaching completely.

Newsletters. I've received hundreds of testimonies from
all over the world. You can read some of them on the other
The guitar is such a wonderful instrument, regardless
of your style of playing. I wish you much success and joy
in the process of learning it!
PS. Although I don't take private students, you can still
