So how long does it take to learn guitar? Well here I break it down in to 6 stages based on the research I have done. No one size fits all but milestones are a great way to set goals.

If you would like to take a deeper dive in to the detail you can read my blog post here:

Hi I’m Luke and If you don’t know my channel is all about sharing my midlife beginner guitar journey with you.

Along the way I show my progress or lack thereof! and look to pass on tips along the way that I learn or read about to share with those of you who are going through a similar journey.

I find that YouTube has a lot of experienced guitarists telling us how to play which is great but nothing I can really relate to as a beginner.

So I want to change this and show what it is like following an online course as a beginner.

Hopefully, this will encourage you to pick up and play the guitar, whether its one that has been sitting in the back of your closet or the new one you are about to buy.

If you need a recommendation then try here:

So, subscribe and become part of a community of beginner guitarists looking to have fun and enjoy the journey.

It would be fantastic to hear from you along the way, so reach out and share your experiences with me.



Being a musician from a young age I began singing at the age of five. I have been a live performer for about thirty years and have played in many bands from covers bands to original ensembles. At twenty I began to write a lot of my own songs and still do today and have written about two hundred works.
