The course should then take you through the lessons in a practical manner so you can become more advanced over time.
If you have the right course, you will likely stay motivated to continue with it. Keep things fun, and make sure you are learning in a variety of different ways. Watch others play the guitar, practice with guitar tracks, and even play musically guitar games. There are some great courses that contain all of these components, further helping you stay committed!
