Welcome to Acoustic Guitar For Beginners with Rich Maloof! Time to dust off your guitar and start strumming. You won’t be bogged down in this course by tedious exercises or music theory. Instead, we get straight to the mechanics of chords and strums so that you can pick up a piece of sheet music (or find some online) and start playing songs that you know and love.

As you click from lesson to lesson, check out the other elements in the video player. The Jam tracks, Text, and PDF’s all support the lessons taught on video.
