Gav has recently shown an interest in playing guitar, so when Guitar 360 Method offered their Semester 1 Bundle up for review, I jumped on it. When he wants to do anything that doesn't involve a video game, I'm all for it!
The Guitar 360 Method is taught by Krisz Simonfalvi, an artist, musician, and teacher, who was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary. He started playing classical guitar at the age of 6, and although he was very good at it, lost interest because he wasn't taught how to understand his instrument. After coming back to his guitar in his late teens, he remembered his music teacher's method which was a down to Earth and more practical way of learning the guitar. This fueled his passion to teach his students with a more practical and no nonsense approach so that they can excel in guitar playing too.
Upon receiving this product, I was really impressed with the website itself. I love a website that is easy to navigate, and the Guitar 360 method did not disappoint! As you can see in the picture below, you have tab that says "My Library."
After you click on that tab, everything you have access to will appear here where it's easy to find.
Now since Gav has never had any kind of lessons before, we started with the very first set of videos under the "Start Playing Your Guitar" section. He wasn't even sure how to hold it correctly so this was where he needed to be. This is actually where we are still working. In this section, it's broken down into weeks, but the beauty of this product is, you can break it down and do it as slow or fast as you need to. It's a learn at your own pace program, and we love that! Also the videos are made to be short so that you can go directly to what you're looking for. This saves time and eliminates having to fast forward or rewind to find a certain topic in a long video!
He started out learning the parts of the guitar. I loved that he took the time to go over this, because every musician needs to know their instrument. He moved on to right hand and left hand techniques. He even talks to them about how to tune their guitar. All important information for playing your best!
The first thing Gav was playing was the 4 finger warm up exercise. It took him some time to get used to it, but after a couple of days, he was playing it pretty well. He was complaining that his hands and fingers hurt, but we explained that he would eventually work that out. It's all part of being a new guitar player! After going over this exercise, your student is given some different practice videos to work on starting at Level 1 and going into Level 3.
After going through the 3 weeks of "Getting to Know Your Guitar," you will then be ready to move on to the Semester 1 section. This is a 13 week course focused on giving you or your student the foundation you need to be a great guitar player. Like I said, we have not gotten to this part yet, but I did look ahead and we are really looking forward to it! Mr. Simonfalvi takes his time in explaining everything so that it's easy to understand, even if you are a beginner.
This is a great course whether you are a new guitar player, or have a few skills under your belt. I love how it's broken down and easy to understand. My husband who plays guitar, also thought the videos were great, and appreciated this easy method of learning. I highly recommend the Guitar 360 Method if you are looking to learn guitar from the comfort of your own home. Right now, our readers are being offered 20% off for this course!
