10 Guitar Tuition Channels on YouTube you Need to Follow
Gone are the days when as a beginner guitarist you have to spend what feels like an age riffling through books, only to buy something that’s just not what you wanted. You wanted to learn some awesome chops, but you find yourself banging out three blind mice. Dang!
