If you have looked online for guitar courses, you have probably seen a lot of thirty-minute “Learn Guitar Overnight” videos. Your instincts tell you that these will not work. For someone who really wants to learn to play guitar, Gibson’s Learn & Master Guitar provides a series of video guitar lessons that will take you from any skill level, even a total novice, through to advanced levels.
Not a beginner guitarist? That’s OK. Skim through the basics and jump into the more advanced training. Learn more about using the course as an intermediate player..
Lesson books alone, with no detailed video instruction, can be confusing. Using software-based instruction chains you to your computer and is difficult to use. Private guitar instruction is pricey, inconvenient, and depends on finding the perfect teacher. An average weekly guitar lesson will cost you $2,000 per year plus all that driving!
Gibson’s Learn & Master Guitar program solves all of these problems. We combine the best instructional tools for learning guitar in one course.
Over 40 hours of instruction on 20 DVDs produced in High Definition. These are the heart of Gibson’s Learn & Master Guitar.Each lesson is clearly explained and demonstrated, so you know exactly what and how to practice. The videos were recently awarded two Telly awards for excellence in the categories of Education and Use of Music.
Gibson’s Learn and Master Guitar covers everything from the very basics through the most advanced techniques. There’s no way we could list everything, but here are a few of the things you will learn—and master!
“What type of guitar will I learn to play?” We all have our favorite styles of music, so it’s only natural that you’d be most interested in playing what you like.

You can learn them all or just the ones that interest you most.
This is where the fun comes in! These five CDs allow you to “jam along” with an actual band, using the very same songs you’ll be learning in your lessons. There’s no better way to learn than by playing, and there’s no way to play that’s more fun than jamming with a band. You’ll be amazed at how much more fun this makes your practice time!
