No, you cannot master the guitar in 60 minutes. Steer away from such claims. If you're serious about learning, look for a good teacher.

They are the work of people whose main motivation is to separate you from your money.

In other words: a scam.

A fool and his/her money are easily parted is a saying that springs to mind, it would be more worth while investing in guitar lesson

Doesn't take much sense to know that mastering the guitar in 60 minutes is impossible, at least for us mortals.

However, being a sort of conneseur of gobbledygook, an avid observer of state of the art bamboozlement techniques, I do find myself wondering....

...what's their angle?

I mean, once you've slapped down your wad of cash, do you find out that what they really mean is 60 minutes per day?

Is it an "I did it (take my word for it) and so can you and if you can't you're just not trying hard enough (so no refunds, mate)" line of reasoning?

Do they send you tab for "Horse With No Name" - which pretty much anybody can play in five minutes - and then say "Good 'nuf for me, you've mastered the guitar"?

Anybody ever seen one of these things with the pages open?

I've definitely became the master of my guitar after following such a course. Before I was a scared, introverted person, now I walk the streets knowing that no matter what guitar I run into in the dark Dutch alleys I will be the one to come out alive.

Very good, Ignar. Very good.

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.
