About the show

The Learn Guitar podcast from the National Guitar Academy simplifies the guitar world so you can make music and have fun as quickly as possible.

This podcast will make you a better guitarist by teaching you our best guitar tips and secrets for rapid progress.

We discuss chords and chord technique, we share lead guitar secrets, we tell you how to sound more rhythmic and musical and we also teach you music theory.

The segments of the show

‘Tips & Advice’ is the part of the show when we answer your questions about guitar & music culture.

‘One Last Thing’ is the part of the show when we leave you with a parting gift; something randomly cool or interesting about music or guitar culture.

Bonus Packs

For each podcast we create a ‘bonus pack’ that expands on what we’ve discussed in the episode.

Each bonus pack includes video lessons, diagrams, chordboxes, links and practice material that build on the things we’ve discussed in the podcast.

(There’s only so much we can explain through audio. Sometimes it’s easier to SHOW you stuff and that’s when the bonus packs come in handy.)
