Playing songs is how guitarists:
If you think you can skip over the things on the list above and jump straight to riffing and jamming like the pros, you’re kidding yourself.

“I’m really enjoying the Essential Skills Song Pack Bundle. The videos are very well done. The teaching style is outstanding. I feel like I’m actually playing with the band to some of my favorite songs—in time! This is exactly what I was hoping for. It makes me feel like an actual musician.”

“Desi fills in the gaps left by other teachers. Before, I was just gathering information. Now, I’m actually playing music. I can play through several songs beginning to end and I love it.”
- Mandy E.
"I am so amazed by everything! Desi is an excellent instructor. He teaches just what I need. Previously, I resisted learning songs. It held me back. Now, I can play complete songs. Unreal! I am improving my chords and timing. I am also making better use of my gear and effects. I had played for a while but it wasn’t until this course that I felt like I was accomplishing something. I find myself reviewing the songs in my head when I’m away. I never thought I could do that."

“I have to confess that I'm an online guitar lesson junkie. I must have tried hundreds of lessons with the hope of trying to understand how to play guitar for real and in the style of my favorite songs. Despite spending a lot of time and money, I only ended up frustrated.
The thing that tripped me up was the lack of attention to detail with most lessons. Instructors would always leave out critical information, whether it had to do with technique, timing, or other nuances of playing. I eventually gave up my dream of being a guitarist and lost my joy for the instrument.
But, everything changed when I stumbled upon Desi Serna. All I can say is—WOW—this guy is truly a gifted teacher. I’m no longer struggling to make progress. With Desi, I 'get it.' He’s able to explain the little nuances of guitar playing that enable a student like me to play real music. The way his courses are presented it's as if I am taking a private lesson with Desi. Most importantly, my joy for guitar is back. Thanks, Desi!”

"In just a couple of months, I’ve started at about zero on the guitar and can now play over 20 songs. Desi’s step-by-step teaching style is what most other teachers I’ve seen on YouTube or otherwise lack. They tend to go from zero to 100mph in a second and seem to be more concerned with showing off than teaching. I’m impressed with how each song in Desi’s song packs builds a little bit on the previous ones and how quickly I’ve progressed. The lessons are fun and keep me looking forward to getting home at night and picking up the guitar."
"Trying to learn guitar with so many online resources to choose from put me on the wrong track. I fell into the trap of learning theory and soloing. My playing wasn’t taking shape and I wasn’t enjoying it. I now realize I need to learn how to play simple songs using basic chords before I venture into harder things. I took many steps back so I can actually move forward in a productive fashion. This course was exactly what I needed."
