How long does it take to learn guitar? Here is my first 1 year guitar progress from absolute beginner. I'm adult beginner and start my learning at March 27 2017 when I took the guitar for the first time in my life. Actually I started to record myself on video to watch my own progress, see the difference between before and after to motivate myself not to quit. At first it was very hard to make myself practice every day, but as soon as I started seeing progress it motivated me more and more. So now I want to share it with everyone. I hope it could inspire and motivate people to start their own journey of learning musical instrument or whatever else.
