Scotty answers some of your questions about his video guitar lesson program

Can video guitar lessons teach me how to play guitar correctly?

"Yes ... provided those guitar lessons are well produced. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then my professionally produced guitar lessons are priceless! Folks often have trouble learning music from text sources. Many of you have tried reading guitar books or downloading guitar lessons in text form and you still don't get guitar music theory. That's because you will learn how to play guitar more easily when someone actually shows you how it's done and explains what they are doing right in front of your eyes!

With our video guitar lessons, you get to hear what it actually sounds like. It's very much like taking private guitar lessons — but at a fraction of the cost! The close-ups of the various guitar chord and scale fingerings and multiple camera angles that appear in our guitar lessons  may even give you a better view than you get with private guitar lessons. You can freeze the frame and study the fingerings in detail. You can rewind and watch a segment over and over until you totally get it down."

Wouldn't I learn how to play guitar better and quicker if I took guitar lessons from a private teacher?

"Our video guitar lessons are probably the best way to learn how to play guitar unless you have a world class guitar teacher with 40 years playing experience and an air-tight knowledge of music theory living in your neighborhood ... and you probably don't. If I had a nickle for every "meathead" guitar teacher I've ever met, I'd be a rich man! And good guitar players aren't automatically good guitar teachers. They may understand guitar music theory themselves, but that doesn't guarantee that they have a fool-proof system in place to explain the guitar to you.

I've been a private guitar teacher helping people understand music and learn how to play the guitar 40 hours a week for almost 28 years and I still love it. I've explained guitar music theory and technique to so many thousands of people that I've learned how to express these concepts so that even the most complex theory is fun and easy to learn. That's what made this whole series of guitar lessons on DVD possible. I just walked into the TV studio ... they pointed the cameras at me and I just "did my thing".
