-- Where to get videos and books...if you want to learn on your own
-- Why practice makes perfect...and brings you the most relaxing time of your day
-- How to find an instrument to fit your needs and budget...should you go acoustic or digital?
-- What you need to do to write and arrange a song...it all may start in the shower
-- Where you can play for others...for fun or profit

All you need is the desire to play -- and the encouragement you will find in...
