Why take this course and how much time does it take to complete?

Do you search the internet for the chords to your favorite songs only to be repeatedly disappointed to find that you can't play them because they use an F chord or a B chord?

Movable barre chords have ended the careers of countless potentially great guitarists before they ever began. That's because holding down all six strings on an acoustic guitar is difficult! With this 10 week course you can avoid the tragic fate of so many students before you and actually master barre chords opening the door to every important chord in the musical universe!

Yes!

(If you are almost but not quite ready, take Level IV, Guitar Workshop.)
