It would take decades to develop and create a machine capable of melting away that pesky winter snow. But in 10 weeks, today's side deal could have you melting hearts with a gentle pluck—or faces with a rippin' riff. For $163, you get the gift of guitaring for yourself or someone else from the New York City Guitar School, a $319 value. Each course meets for one hour a week for 10 weeks. This Groupon includes one guitar rental if you don't already wield your own axe (normally $19 a month). There is a $189 deposit associated with the rental, which will be returned in full at the end of your 10 weeks. That's assuming you don't smash it to pieces following a flawless performance of a heartwarming ballad.
Whether it's your first time with a guitar in your hands (not counting Guitar Hero), or you're just looking to take your skills to the next stage, there is a class waiting to help fulfill your musical destiny. True beginners will learn the fundamentals of chords and more, no previous experience required. Intermediate users can add lead guitar, blues guitar, or fingerstyle guitar to burgeoning repertoires. Advanced strummers can pick up the upper echelon of skills like jazz guitar or flamenco guitar, among others. Whatever your current capabilities, the skilled instructors at New York City Guitar School are practiced in guiding players of all ability levels. Check out some commonly asked questions to help decide which class is right for you.

- I've taken 4 classes here, each about 6 months apart and I really have nothing but praise for this place... Atmosphere is welcoming and encouraging. Teachers are patient and friendly. Classes are small - usually five people or less - and most of the students are professional adults who come to the classes after work. – liquidchaz, Citysearch
- The staff and the teachers are really REALLY friendly and they simply love to play music and teach others how to play also...That's why they do it!!! – Sean K., Yelp
