The concept of Learn Guitar In 8 Weeks was conceived in early 2001. Being a guitar teacher, Jason Shepherd discovered how many people were out there driven to learn music, but didn't have the time or money to pursue steady lessons. An 8-week program on video or DVD would be an effective & affordable means to instruct people all around the world and give them the jump-start needed to accomplish their musical goals. Jason then came up with an outline for 8 weeks worth of lessons, which he used from his own teaching examples. These 8 weeks of lessons would give almost anyone with an acoustic or an electric guitar the ability to start playing all the basics normally taught in most books, videos, or even by taking lessons.
