I wanted to show that learning guitar is fun, easy and, with a little perseverance, really musical. Since I already play guitar right handed I decided to learn left handed all over again.
Thank you to PMT for loaning me out a guitar and being an awesome music store. Check them out:

  • I always wanted to learn how to play guitar but thought that it was impossible to find a guitar for the left handed since most left handed stuff i find to be a pain to find

  • Hi Mike, maybe you will see this comment or maybe you wont, I have always loved you videos and seeing how you learn all those things, its really inspiring, the thing is, I've been wanting to learn how to play the guitar for almost 3 years now, but I just can't afford to buy one, im 18 years old and im a Dad already of a beautiful little girl but all my money goes basically in diapers. I just wanted to see if you could gift me a acoustic guitar to be able to learn how to play it. And finally complete that dream. Anyways, Sorry for bothering you

  • LEFT handed = "doing it the wrong way: ... $200 = "starting cheap" ... What WHITE PRIVILAGED neighborhood did you grow up on? - cheap in my 'hood - is building it out of a brrom stick & a pizza box ... $200 AIN"T cheap for most of us .

  • 0:08 ... "Guitars are cheap and easy to carry." ... (Electric guitar ... chair ... cables ... pedals... amp ... electric cord) ... COMPARED TO ? ... New Harmonica - $12 ... New accordion - $90 ... New Ukelele - $120 ... New trumpet $ - 150 ... ALL (under $200) and a lot more portable - as well.

    Terrill S Van DykeTerrill S Van DykePirms 3 Mēnešiem
    • You don't need a chair if you have a strap. Nor do you need an amp. You can carry a laptop with Amp sim software, a mic/speaker breakout adapter with a 1/4 inch adapter (like $5-10) and a tiny clip-on bluetooth speaker all in a backpack. Backpack and guitar case. that's the whole setup right on your back. No big deal and not super expensive.
