Who is it for?

This Beginners series is suitable for complete beginners and will take you to a stage where you can play worship guitar confidently in a house group or small church setting. For existing players, volumes 2 and 3 are great for those who know a few basic chords and some strumming patterns but don’t yet play “power” chords, slash chords or chords further up the neck. Volume 3 also includes a complete guide to effective finger picking. After these volumes try the Song Learner series.

Volume 1 is suitable for complete beginners who have never even picked up a guitar before. 


We often find that people who already know a few chords appreciate starting with volume 1 in order to make sure they fully understand the basics.


If you think you are a bit too advanced for the Beginners Box set (i.e. you already know plenty of open chords, power chords and basic finger picking), then have a look at our Song Learner Series which sits between Beginners and Intermediate in terms of ability.



What do I need to get started?

Apart from the DVDs and a DVD player (or computer), all you need is a guitar, a pick (plectrum) and ideally a tuner.


Although not essential, lots of people find our DVD workbooks a helpful guide to use alongside the DVDs. With these you have the chord charts printed out beside you, rather than just on screen.The worknooks will help you work through the DVDs and turn each DVD volume into a 10 week course that really makes the most out of all the drum loops, backing tracks and interviews as well as showing you further songs to play using the chords and strumming patterns you have learnt.


Is this for electric or acoustic guitar?

The Beginners series is suitable for both acoustic and electric guitarists. Having learnt the basic information on volumes 1-3 you can then progress to our song learner series (more suitable for acoustic players) and our Intermediate Acoustic or Intermediate Electric DVDs.


What else is available to help me practice?

We have a DVD called Worship Backing Band - Musicians Practice Tracks which contains 54 worship songs that you can play along with. Practice is a lot more fun with other people! You can select to take the vocals out of the mix so you are effectively the singer with a pro band. Its like high quality worship karaoke. The DVD shows on-screen words and chords so if you play an instrument you can also play along as you sing. 


Will the DVDs work on my DVD player?

The DVDs are NTSC and coded Region 0 which means they will play anywhere in the world.


Can I get a refund if I don't like the DVDs?

Yes, you are also covered by our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee if having received the DVDs you do not feel they are right for you.

Great course for beginner | Review by Robo
Ease Of Use
A great value. As a bass player trying to learn guitar, I had a little knowledge. I found the sections on strumming, finger picking and chord substitutions, quite useful. Will probably get the intermediate course in the future.

Extremely helpful | Review by mathtutorboy
Ease Of Use
I had played guitar for over 7 years and couldn't progress much. Most of my difficulty was in strummng consistently. This DVD set was very helpful in allowing me to strum along with Christian songs I love. I am looking forward to buying the new set as I see it has much content added to it. Well done Musicademy. I am so thankful I am making a Musicademy sticker to put on my guitar case to give props for all the help. I for one, love the idea of sticking my case and personalized it.

Very Good | Review by M&M
Ease Of Use
I found the beginner's dvd's very helpful for someone who has only had 2 years of guitar. Everything is layed out in a very user friendly manner. The only thing is I wish that you would play the whole song with the chords being learned, that would be very helpful.

Musicademy responds:
We've taken that feedback on board and our new Beginning Guitar DVDs include a full play through and backing track.

Very, very good | Review by Look2Jesus
Ease Of Use
Totally exceeded my expectations.
Very nice flow to the lesson experience - chord lesson, then a strumming pattern, a song, useful tips, then some real-life interviews.
Not only am I learning a lot, I feel spiritually edified by listening to the interviews and going through the lessons. Really a unique product.

Worth the Price | Review by Chris
Ease Of Use
This DVD has been very helpful to me as a long time worship leader, yet beginning guitarist. The production quality of the video is mediocre, but the quality of the content is very good. What took this over the top for me was the ability to see some of the most famous worship leaders in the world sharing plainly from the heart on a living room couch. To that point, I must that this kind of honest sharing makes the videos over the top awesome.

It looks good for a Christian country rock stile | Review by J.E. Mitch
Ease Of Use
This seems like a good resource for leaning guitar. The problem I have is the style is based on rock or country which is fine but I want to learn gospel guitar witch is different than the Christian country rock style. When I say Gospel I am talking about R&B Gospel.
So far I have not found anyone that can teach it. What I have found. leaves a lot to be desired some make a DVD and do a show and tell that is difficult to follow. there are no diagrams no tab nothing. which leaves me to try and figure it out.

Very easy to follow, yet effective | Review by Maenon
Ease Of Use
I've been self-teaching myself to play the guitar on and off for the past 2 years now and learnt a couple of bad habits, this is the first time I've had something structured and specific to follow and boy I'm glad I bought this DVD set, Andy's a great teacher and guitarist, he helps beginners to progress to the point of being able to play in no time at all, give yourself 10-15 minutes a day for about 2-3 weeks and you should be able to play some of the more popular worship songs being sung in churches quite easily.

Andy introduces some of the strumming patterns being used in today's popular songs sung in churches and if you stick to it you may actually find yourself playing and sounding like some of those records! Those drum grooves provided are also great accompaniment to your playing.

Very easy to watch | Review by Mark Boast
Ease Of Use
My wife bought me Beginners Worship Guitar less than two months after I'd got my 1st guitar. I'm no spring chicken so expected learning to be more difficult and was worried the tone would be too much like watching a yoof TV show. I needn't have worried. Andy is very easy to watch though I'm not the quickest of learners. The only thing I really struggled with was the audio practice tracks were I found it difficult to keep track of where I was meant to be up to. Anyway largely thanks to Andy's patience - no matter how many times I replayed a section he never seemed to get annoyed - I now lead worship in our little church.
