If you are looking for a complete learn to play guitar package that focuses on both electric and acoustic guitar then Amazing Guitar Secrets may be the course for you. This learn to play pack includes work books, video examples and audio tracks which are all designed to move you along as you learn and develop skills.
Amazing Guitar Secrets has been designed and taught by musician and teacher Dan Denley. Denley has a very accomplished music background that includes a music degree, classical training in piano and vocal performance as well as over seven years experience playing guitar with performing bands. For those guitarists that find this guitar package great to learn from, Denley also has several advanced guitar courses including Lead Guitar Secrets and Acoustic Guitar Secrets.
As with many of these learn to play guitar packages this course contains 2 DVDs of lessons and techniques, a CD which contains jam tracks and a very comprehensive work book which guides you through the lessons.
The DVD part of the pack contains just over 4 hours of material with a mix of video and on screen graphics and diagrams. The quality of the video segments is nothing special but it makes up for this with quality material and relatively good audio. A note to beginners who are using this guitar program is that Denley in some examples uses technical language which may not be understood by people who have just started to play guitar and have no other music background.
The CD contained in Amazing Guitar Secrets includes 40 guitar tracks which you can play along with. These tracks are a good addition to the course however they have been recorded with just the guitar playing and would have been better with the option of playing the tracks with a backing band. The CD also has all the work books as PDF files which can be printed and also contains printable versions of the tutorials that cover topics such as reading chord charts and learning scales.
The Work book that is included in the pack is made up of 10 smaller black and white workbooks that follow the lessons and format of the included DVDs. Other information included in the work book is a handy progress tracker which you can use to map your progress through the lessons. There is also an included Amazing Guitar Secrets guide book and you will also receive several other smaller theory books which cover some of the technical information such as scales, patterns, reading music, guitar tab and guitar theory.
This guitar package is suitable for people who are wanting to learn music theory as well as learning to play the guitar and at the price of under $100 it is defiantly worth a look.
