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:

  • Mike has actually inspired me to not give up and to work hard to achieve my goals. My name is Jesper and I just started writing my own music. I just finished writing my first song and I really like it. It's about the up and downs in life, and it would mean A LOT to me if you would check it out (and ofc tell me what you think). The song is inspired by Ed Sheeran's "You need me I don't need you". Lots of love in advance, and keep up the good work Mike.

  • 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

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 6 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.
