Join the thousands who have already discovered the secrets to effectively teaching themselves the guitar in their own spare time. For the first time ever, expert “guitar hacker” Johnny Lee reveals his little-known secrets for mastering the guitar at home, even if you possess no innate talent to begin with and hate the idea of being disciplined. In these 12 exciting lessons, you’ll finally learn how to do it all without struggle... without complicated theory... without boring lessons... and without paying thousands for expensive lessons (yet still get equal or better results).

I’ll show you a free tool that IS. * How to overcome any fear of playing in front of other people (this lesson has frequently been called “the best article I’ve ever read” by guitar players of any age) * And much much more... Been looking for a better way to learn guitar? It’s finally here. And best of all, it’s been proven effective by guitarists of ALL ages. See for yourself: "I just want to thank you for these emails. Following your advice, I found myself getting better faster, plus it’s more fun and less taxing, if at all!... So thanks man, and keep them up. I'll be sending you a donation as soon as the paycheck comes in." -Matt Beyers, Newsletter Subscriber “Picked it up again 13 years ago and 6 months in, I severed every tendon in my right arm, and quit again. I’m 44 now. A week ago my wife got me a guitar for Christmas. Using your theories, 7 days later I can play “Wish You Were Here” all the way through. Thanks again.” -Eric Peterson, Subscriber “Thanks to [the free lessons], my skill has improved immensely! I think I might even be able to become a guitar prodigy before I reach 20 with all your tips and tricks... I am now on the right track and off the track to destruction.” -Kurt Laurie, Subscriber

About the Author:

Johnny Lee is a lover of music, guitarist, songwriter, and creator of the No B.S. Guitar website, the best-kept secret of self-taught guitarists from over 73 different countries. When he first started learning guitar, he spent the first 3 years really struggling and sounding terrible. He couldn't play like he wanted, and even felt like giving up. But luckily, he didn't. Instead, he went looking for a "guitar teacher". Someone to show him how it was really done. After wasting a ton of time and money on three different guitar teachers... one a "guitar guru" who even had his own column in Guitar World magazine... and still not being able to perform a single song cleanly from beginning to end... he eventually tried a different approach. He found a non-guru... a 23-year old jazz-guitar prodigy... and started taking lessons with him. Within 4 or 5 lessons, this new teacher helped him turn it all around and make more progress in 6 weeks than he had previously made in 6 months. The rest was history. Johnny was able to teach himself the guitar, effectively, from that point forward, never paying for a single lesson more. He quickly went on to perform regularly at a local cocktail bar, to the astonishment of his friends. In 2010, Johnny started No B.S. Guitar to see if the strategies he discovered could be used by other guitar students to improve their ability to learn, just as they did for him. What happened next was astounding. In a matter of months, the emails came pouring in. Case after case... people were sharing their success stories on how these ideas had changed their playing and their lives... all in a very short time. Since then, No B.S. Guitar has matured into one of the premier sources of accurate information, useful knowledge, and uplifting inspiration for scores of self-taught guitarists from over 73 different countries. Johnny's lessons have appeared on top guitar websites such as Ultimate-Guitar, GuitarNoise, and many others.
