Brown Eyed Girl is a simple and sweet song with only a few chords but has a pretty tricky lead intro due to the use of double-stops. Take your time and this Van Morrison classic will be all yours!

Guitar Basics: A perfect eBook for beginners!

Hey rockstars!  So as many of you know, I’ve been teaching 1-on-1 guitar lessons for years now and I’ve easily taught 100’s of complete beginners how to ROCK!  So what I’ve done is condensed all of that material I usually teach within the first month or so into ONE FULL AND SHORT BOOK called Guitar Basics.  This covers all that you need to know to get started.

Plus it comes with a guaranteed and FREE support from myself via email:  mccormickguitarlessons@gmail.com

Here are a few comments from people who have actually read it and used it!

“This is the perfect guide for beginners.  I was a new guitar player just 2  months ago and this helped me to get all the basic stuff down really good.  The pictures helped a lot too.  I would highly recomend this book for anyone looking to play guitar.”  -Richard

“I recommend this book 100%!!  I actually have taken guitar classes before but this helped  me understand the material i skipped over before.  And for the price, it’s amazing.   I would’ve spent at least 4 times that much to learn what i know now.  Get guitar basics and you wont regret it!!  Good info in there and for cheap!!!”  -Veronica

 “This is a great first guitar book. Not only did the author go over the basics of how the physical guitar actually works and functions, he provides very practical, basic information on chords, strumming patterns and tabs. If a new player plays through the contents of this book, he or she can be confident that they have the base talent needed to learn how to play this instrument.”  -Paul

“If you are interested in learning guitar this book is a great way to get started. It covers the basics in a straight forward and easy to understand manner. Anyone who reads the book and completes the lessons presented will be well on their way to playing their favorite songs around the campfire.”  -Theresa

“Explains the basics well. Easy and fun to follow. I recommend this for anyone who wants to start playing guitar.”  -Justin


This book is a comprehensive and concise manual for getting started on guitar! Although designed for beginners, this book is a great read and resource from rookies to pros alike because it covers the basics of what every guitar player SHOULD know!

Don’t think you can’t learn guitar, because YOU CAN. With this book, you will have access to a typical 1st month of lessons with Andrew McCormick.

That’s up to a $220 value!

Connecting the Pentatonic Patterns

What’s up guys!?  Today I wanted to give ya something that is HIGHLY effective if you’ve been playing around with the pentatonic patterns for a bit.  Listed below are two diagrams that will show you how the pros often connect all the different patterns.  Be sure you are comfortable with ALL the patterns first.   Enjoy!

The Minor Pentatonic scale is one of the most widely used scales in improvisation in every musical style so it makes sense to know it well all over the guitar neck. When it comes to moving beyond the first pattern learned the next step is usually to introduce five overlapping patterns, each staying strictly in position on the neck. In reality, most Blues and Rock soloists connect these positions in very repeatable ways creating just two patterns that cover the entire neck. These are shown below in the key of A:
