The undisputed #1 training product for someone wanting to learn how to play the guitar. Learn and Master Guitar features the most professional and high-quality presentation of all the “learn guitar” products- from the materials to the packaging to the trainers. Then again, for the price you pay (it’s pretty expensive) you EXPECT the material to be top notch.
Included in Gibson’s Learn and Master Guitar are 20 guitar instruction DVD’s featuring over 40 hours of HD video lessons, 5 CD’s, a comprehensive 100+ page lesson book, and a free online student support site (this is huge – check it out here).
The step-by-step video instruction is of the highest quality of all the programs we reviewed. This course is for the serious guitar player, because the quantity and quality of information is huge. It’s a great course for beginners, but we also think that intermediate and advanced users would benefit from the course as well, unlike some of the other products we’ve reviewed.
All the books, DVDs, audio, and software are clearly laid out, well organized, and easy to use. There is a little “cheat sheet” that comes with book that describes exactly how to use the course.
The 20 DVDs are well-produced, the jam tracks sound awesome, and the lesson book compliments the DVDs very well. Overall, Learn and Master Guitar gets the highest rating for its top-notch trainers, materials, and support.
High quality lessons, 20 DVDs, Jam CDs, great content and awesome customer service and support. The well-known Gibson brand is behind it. The 60-day money-back guarantee is great for skeptics who think the course might be too expensive, and the free support they offer through their website sets this product apart from the rest of the competition.
It’s a physical product so you have to wait for shipping, but it only takes about 2-4 days in the US. Also, the price might deter certain buyers. Not really for “casual” guitarists. If this is you, check out Jamorama.
Buying tip: Check the website often for sales. It seems that they lower the price every few months for a sale before raising it again.
