Playing a musical instrument is a skill that will serve you throughout your entire life, like safe cracking, horse punching, and toddler juggling. Add to your resumé with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a 12-DVD beginner guitar-lesson bundle from Guitar Jamz (a $137.98 value).
Guitar Jamz instructor Marty Schwartz teaches the six-stringed harmony enhancer through video lessons. Callus-building chord progressions, power and bar chords, and a hint of music theory populate the first two DVDs; during the next nine, Schwartz imparts strumming and timing techniques through repertoire-ready songs, helping students stockpile playlists for camping-out-for-Metallica-tickets sing-alongs. The electric guitar rocks a solo in the final DVD, which covers amplifiers, tuning, and rowdy riffs for metal-pounding covers of the original 90210 theme song. More than 12 hours of intense virtual instruction prepare any aspiring axe-master for multiple encores.
