 FED Up TRYING To LEARN Guitar on your own or ONLINE?

 Its not easy trying to learn guitar.  Its even more difficult if you are trying to navigate all the "confusing" information online.

When you’re first starting out, your fingers don’t go where you want them to, your fingertips get sore, and it seems impossible to even get one chord sounding clean without any buzzing.

But then after a LOT of practice, you reach a breakthrough - you can now change chords while still strumming!
It feels like such a huge accomplishment.
But, in another way it’s also just the beginning of your journey as a guitar player, still determined, you continue to keep working at it.  

You learn some more chords, you learn a few simple melodies and maybe even a scale, and maybe you learn how to read tabs or chord charts.

Over time, with patience and consistency, you start to get better.  

After a few months though, things grind to a halt.

Hi everybody, I thought I'd just drop a quick post by way of introduction.    

I have just picked up the guitar after many years away and came across James Ledley fb page and last week took the plunge to join the Accelerator Program.    

I originally played guitar (not very well) many years ago and am basically starting from scratch, this is the first form of more formal teaching that I have had.  

Everything previously was self taught or from friends.    I watched the introductory video from James and then started looking at the first lesson, I was tempted to skip over a little but following James advice on the video I am now reading everything.    

As a result I have found some great bits of information about playing that I previously either did incorrectly, didn't do at all or did it but didn't understand why.    

So based on this I thought I would just give you all the tip to absorb all the information provided.  
My first impression is that this is a great programme and I am very much looking forward to my playing improving.  

I'm fed up not getting anywhere and I want to start playing songs!
  Yes I want in!!....

Ok, so WHY are you NOT progressing?  You start to think it might be...

  • You arent practicing enough - "Yes that must be it!"    
  • Maybe its your hands they are the wrong size or the wrong shape     
  • Maybe your Guitar isnt good enough and its holding you back?     
  • Maybe you just havent watched the right videos or bought the best books?  

However, it's actually NONE of these. Instead:

The key difference between struggling and making great progress is:

Knowing HOW and WHAT to Practice, getting HELP and having ACCOUNTABILITY.

The truth is that:

Most beginners just don't know HOW to practice and end up working on the WRONG things and have no one to help them in the process.

So looking back, has this went the way you thought it would....?

Let me know if you think this sounds familiar.....

You started to learn guitar and couldn’t wait to get going with so many hopes and dreams.

You had a crystal clear picture of who you wanted to play like, what songs you were going to learn, and maybe even thought about playing and singing.

You bought your first guitar and got stuck in.. learning basic notes, a few simple chords, and trying to figure out how to push down on the strings so they wouldn’t keep “buzzing”

BUT very quickly – you started to realize that it isn’t easy to move your hands the way you want to and co-ordinate the left and right hands together to play music.

But you kept on trying thinking “it will work out in the end” Just that simple dream of being able to play the music you love was enough to keep you going.

Still feeling the excitement of it all, you would diligently practice every day, making time for yourself and your practicing. In the time that you had, you would watch videos, try and find chord charts or a book of chords and you even tried playing along to the songs you love.

All this time you are thinking “If I work at it like this things will fall into place and it will “happen” just like I really want it to”. 

So your BIG question now is - What hasn't this worked?

It probably started way back when you first picked up the guitar.

Its more than likely - you did (and its not your fault) what most beginners do these days and went straight to Youtube.

Why is this a bad thing?

Its not good because you don't have any kind of structure and are just fumbling along gathering up a pile of free tabs or PDfs and jumping from one thing to the other.

Its what a lot of people automatically do but then find it just doesnt work out.

What you don't have is the WHAT and HOW to practice with a solid proven roadmap.

As a beginner the worst possible thing you can do is to practice the wrong things from the start - its nearly as bad as not practicing at all!

So if you’re stuck in a rut and unhappy with your lack of progress, it could have a lot to do with the training materials you’ve been using up until now.  

Because a lot of the books and courses out there are great but all too often they are filled with stuff thats just NOT RELEVANT to you as a beginner.  

The other extreme is where loads of guitarists tend to spend all of their time just playing along to their 3 favourite songs and only look for other songs with those same chords and never really progress any further, staying in the "safe zone".

It really is no wonder so many beginners get frustrated within a few months of starting guitar.

Here's the GOOD NEWS...

Despite The Struggles you have had so far, I can 100% Guarantee you  WILL
 become good at playing Guitar...

Guitar SHOULD be a source of pleasure.  Something you can pick up and chill out with and look forward to playing everyday and with the right approach it can be.

You SHOULD be making steady and consistent progress EVERY TIME you sit down to practice to the point where you just know you are improving.

You CAN have that total feeling of satisfaction that you are working on the right things and are actually playing music instead of learning to play music.

It IS TOTALLY POSSIBLE  to gain the skills and knowledge and be in that situation where at last everything just works.

You CAN HAVE THE CONFIDENCE  to play in front of the family, at a gig, in a Guitar group, even play on stage and sing - why can't any of that be possible? Right? 

It CAN and it WILL - Here's where everything is going to change for you!

There is a Proven Method for Learning Guitar 

At this point, you already know that consistent and focused practicing is the key to becoming a great guitarist.
And by using the Get Playing Guitar Accelerator - 3 Step Method I’m about to share, you’ll also:  

✅Have the ability to make rapid, consistent, predictable progress in as little as 15 minutes per day.
✅Understand the theory behind the songs you’re playing so you’re free to unleash your inner musician and rock your own riffs, chord fill ins and and progressions.

✅BE ABLE to improvise - not only with solos but knowing how to embellish chords and make them more interesting AND bring that knowledge into the music you already play!

✅Actually look forward to practicing because you’ll be having fun playing songs and enjoying the satisfaction of seeing your hard work pay off.
You can experience all these things, whether you’re a total beginner or coming back to guitar after a few years...  but they DO depend on using a specific, step-by-step proven process and getting "hands on" 1:1 help from a  pro tutor who has been there and done that and knows the shortcuts and simple adjustments that speed up the entire process.  

This process is proven and uses effective teaching methods, developed over years of lessons that never feel boring, outdated, or overly-theoretical but focus on "hands on" playing as a priority.

One that’s been my "secret weapon" for helping my in-person students and exisiting Get Playing Accelerator students now for years,  make consistent progress in both technical skill and musical knowledge week after week, year in, year out.  And…  

One you’ll excitedly, in even 1 months time,  thank yourself for joining,  very, very soon you will be totally crushing songs, riffs, chord fill in's and progressions you thought were WAY beyond your ability. 

This is exactly what I want to be doingright now!  Yes I want in!!....

Let me introduce myself....

Hi, my name is James Ledley.

I first picked up a guitar when I was 15 years old.

I was a kid who just loved music - I actually started on the drums then moved to Bass Guitar and then eventually Guitar.  I had an old "Satelite" 70s electric guitar that wasnt great but its all I had and I borrowed my mums old classical guitar she was given as a present.

Wow those days were tough, trying to play Barre Chords on a classical with the strings too high - it was so difficult.

I loved "The Smiths" and just wanted to play their music but it was so way above my abilities.  I also loved Jimi Hendrix and that was the reason I got into playing Lead Guitar and Soloing.

These days, I really enjoy teaching Guitar and Ukulele Full time and have been teaching since 2006. I love passing on what I have learned and watching others enjoy Guitar and grow to love playing their favourite music the way I do.

Thats why I started my Youtube Channel - originally it had a lot of covers and then I started to devote my time to helping others with guitar.  

I try and help others with their playing and share songs and riffs that interest me from everything I have learned over the years.  

I also got my Dip LCM in Performance way back in 2014 from RGT (Registry Of Guitar Tutors).  

For 18 years, I taught private lessons to hundreds of students of all ages and all different skill levels in private, 1-on-1 sessions.  

And what I’ve learned over those years of teaching is that in order to make consistent progress, you MUST have a plan and a well organized method for learning and practicing.  

So with many months of work and research, I put together a program that is exactly that.  

I’m so excited to introduce you to…

A straightforward 3 Step Method that takes away all the "fluff" and headaches from learning guitar and WITH HELP, guides you Step by Step with exactly what you need to work on and shows you exactly what you need to do to play the way you've always wanted to.

I can GUARANTEE you will be playing 10 Songs in 90 Days or less, with more focus and enthusiasm and most importantly, have far more fun that you have experienced before.

Get Playing Guitar Accelerator is based on my 3 Step Method drawn from my experiences after 18+ years of teaching full time, one to one lessons to beginners and improvers from all walks of life and of all abilities.....

Its a system that simply makes learning guitar faster, easier, quicker and so much FUN.

With Get Playing Guitar Accelerator - and 3 Simple Steps you will learn to :

That makes sense - I didn't think it could be so straight forward -
I want to get started!

✅The most Common Chords and Rhythms to 1000's of songs

What students say about the Program:

Colm Murphy

I had been thinking about starting Guitar and decided to join the Get Playing Guitar Facebook Group.   I then noticed James mentioned the Get Playing Guitar Accelerator Program.

I was finding it tough making any progress and after a chat with James on zoom he was really helpful and I thought I would give it a go. What I found I needed was some guidance and when James said he would also be coaching regularly thats what drew me in – I wanted that “hands on” help from someone rather than sitting struggling on my own with Youtube getting stuck and frustrated.

I really needed some help with my chord changing and co ordination and James has been brilliant – also giving me tips and advice outside of the coaching sessions – he is always open to helping and nothing is too much trouble.  

So glad I joined, thinking back I would probably still be stuck.

I’m feeling quite chuffed with myself tonight ! I have been trying to get the C chord down for some time now and, I don’t know how, but I have finally sussed it 😁
Thank you James Ledley for showing me the technique as it is finally falling into place! 👍👍

My thoughts- I am enjoying and benefitting from being a course participant on James’ ‘Get Playing’ online programme.

James explains clearly and succinctly how to learn the basics of playing demonstrating easy and manageable chords for a beginner while also teaching other basic tips about how to improve my playing.

What I particularly appreciate on the course is: I can work at a pace that fits for me - nothing is forced so that learning is not ‘a chore’ but rather enjoyable.

One other particularly special aspect is that James takes time personally to check in with me to find out how I am getting along - I find this a very human approach to on line teaching. I am never afraid to say exactly how it is going for me- James is very understanding of difficulties/challenges that creep up as a beginner.

A very special learning course. I recommend it highly.

Wullie Stevenson

Hello guys long post ⚠️ so i do apologise in advance. I just wanted to say a little bit on here to maybe help some people who have only just started out learning the guitar like myself.

I started 3 weeks ago now and have absolutely no music background whatsoever but wanted to learn the guitar and got myself one 🤪 the 1st thing i done was went onto youtube and begun learning my trade as a new accoustic guitarist 😀 after maybe 100 beginners🤪 videos and so much information it was clear to me the road was long and going to get longer 😀 i wanted to teach myself absolutely everything about the guitar but for me it wasnt happening like I thought so i decided to join this group and seek help.

After a few txt back and forwards looking for that help i had been chatting to james and he had told me about the beginners programme and how that might help me on my journey so after a couple a days thinking about it i decided to give it a go, i can honestly say its been brilliant so far and has definitely giving me what i was looking for.

It teaches you the basics and helps you understand more something i feel you dont get from a youtube video and 3-4 days in im already playing a melody not great by any means but the guitar is talking to me now 😀😀 any issues with the course james has been there at the end of a txt or a zoom call to explain what im needing to do. For me it gives me structure and basically homework which is great and lots to work on.

Guys if your like me and are just wondering what to do next as the youtube video isnt working for you its definitely something to think about i would definitely recommend it especially for the total novice like myself.

P.S the only thing i would say is that james couldn't guarantee me that i would be playing like mark knopfler after 6 months so that was disappointing lol 

Declan Brady 

Before I made contact with James I had started and then quit guitar on numerous occasions but since Ive been taking lessons with James through his Get Playing Accelerator Program I haven’t looked back since.

Brilliant Teacher, extremely knowledgeable and cleary passionate about his craft.  

Ive missed a couple of coaching sessions due to work committments but he is always checking in to see if there is anything he can do to help me with my playing, he’s very much got his students interests at heart and I could not recommend James highly enough.

Great teacher 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

Ok - I've heard enough, this sounds great and just want to get going!...

Answers to questions you might be wondering about before you join:

What’s the difference between Get Playing Guitar Accelerator and watching Youtube Videos?

Great question!

Compared to other ways of learning from books or Youtube videos you might find, the difference in massive.  

Get Playing Guitar Accelerator is where I cover the small details and tips that you wont get on Youtube videos because they are, in the case of shorts - there is no way to cover the problems that arise in a 60 sec video and in the case of other videos they lack the answers that you need to get quick results!

Get Playing Guitar Accelerator has been specially developed to cater for the concerns I know will arise so you don't have to worry i.e, chord progressions, co ordinating the left and right hands, why your Barre Chords are not coming together and ways to fix that, which scales to use and how to use them and loads more.

I have (over 20+ years of teaching) studied the difficulties that most beginners and improvers have and put this extensive knowledge into this program so you can be sure you will not get "held up" with  the usual difficulties that arise that hold everyone back on Guitar.

Each lesson builds on the last so you dont feel overwhelmed and its easy to take your time and go back and re watch the lesson and if you still have any problems, get in touch and I will only be too glad to help you.

What if I’m a total beginner, will Get Playing Guitar Accelerator work for me?

Yes, absolutely.  I designed Get Playing Guitar Accelerator with beginner guitarists in mind. Even if you’ve never picked up a guitar before, you won’t feel lost or overwhelmed. That’s why we start with the core fundamentals, like fretting, strumming, and basic chords, before moving onto more intermediate topics a bit later. I made sure to explain everything in detail every step of the way so we arent (brushing) over everything too quickly, so the lessons are simple to follow and easy put into practice.

Plus, when you sign up today, you’ll get instant access to the Get Playing Accelerator Private Sup[port Group when you can find answers to questions you might already have.

What if I need to ask questions or get stuck, can I get help quickly?

Getting in touch is easy just post a video in the Facebook group or send me a private video or message  in the chat and I'll take a look or reply to the chat and see how you are getting on and where I can help.  You can join the Private Support Group when you enroll in the course. If you are not a Facebook person, you can send me an email - I'm checking my emails daily :)  

I'm here for you and I love interacting and hearing about everyones progress and answering everyone's questions. That’s what I’m here for.   I will also host a Q&A session on Zoom twice per month every month for students where you can ask your questions live. 

Who is Get Playing Accelerator NOT for?

If you’re proficient at playing barre chords, know your scales backwards and forwards, have extensive practice finger picking, and are knowledgeable about music theory, this course will be too basic for you.

How long before I start seeing awesome results with Get Playing Guitar Accelerator?

If you’re following the lessons and practicing at least 15 minutes each day, you’re going to see progress very quickly (being able to play melodies and chord changes in a matter of weeks) – I will be helping you get your first song going as quickly as possible. 

And if you commit to that 15 minutes a day, I guarantee you WILL make QUICK progress and you’re going to make significant progress in your ability and have a better insight into music, how it works and how to actually add to your playing and add your own "touch" so it feels more persoanl to you.

How long do I have access to the course?

When you join Get Playing Guitar Accelerator, you get lifetime access to all modules and course materials.

That includes:      

All videos and lessons inside the

Still undecided?

  You’ll know Get Playing Guitar Accelerator is right for you if: 

✅You’re a beginner who’sfed up wasting time, are serious about getting good at guitar and you’re ready to “go all in” and commit to a proven training program and accept professional help to make it all so much easier.
✅You want to be great, but don’t have a lot of time to practice… you’ve got work, school, and a social life, which makes playing for hours at a time unrealistic... but you’re confident you can find 15 minutes each day to get better.

✅ You’ve been playing on and off for months (or even years) without a solid roadmap or practice plan in place and want a clear plan for progression… or you’re an intermediate player who wants a refresher on the fundamentals so you can take your technique to the next level.    

✅You look forward to the idea of building a solid foundation, having fun in your practices and having the ability to create and play incredible-sounding music.  

If any of those points resonate with you, this course will be a good fit.

If you're still here and unsure what to do - heres a few thoughts.....

The most crucial ingredient for success in music is WHAT AND HOW you practice - thats it.  

Everyone wishes they were born knowing how to play guitar....

To be able to wow our friends and family, to get on stage, or record your own songs and maybe even get famous, but to get to that level of skill, we need to take stock of where we are today and accept that we take the actions that will get us to where we need to go.  

Whats the alternative?

Bad habits, doing more of the same that probably hasnt got you that far, more frustration and that will lead to stagnating for another year, maybe longer.

Imagine looking back in 12 months and realising (as I hear all the time from beginners who are struggling) that you arent any further on - you can't get that time back - that's bit of a scary thought.

On the other hand imagine looking back in 6 or 12 months time from now at how far you’ve come and how much closer you are getting to playing guitar the way that YOU always wanted too.

Getting closer to being able to express the music that’s inside you?  

With Get Playing Guitar Accelerator, you have that chance, to build a solid foundation for lifelong musical enjoyment.   To be able to channel the music that’s in your mind onto the fretboard and get it out there, feeling yourself getting better and knowing that is the case every single time you sit down to play.  

Imagine, not too far from now, finally being able to play that song that always seemed beyond your grasp.  

Imagine having the confidence to share your playing with others, and even put music out there online. And imagine being good enough to play your first live show seeing the faces of your friends and family in the crowd, feeling the rush of exhilaration and joy as they look at you with big, happy smiles.
Theres simply is no feeling like it (I know Ive done it) its hard to put into words exactly what that feels like.  

So, if you want to set yourself up for a lifetime of fun, creative expression, joy, and fulfillment playing guitar I’d be excited to welcome you inside Get Playing Guitar Accelerator.
