Unlike playing air guitar, playing real guitar requires a great deal of practice, but at least it doesn't have pesky consequences such as wealth and worldwide fame. Avoid the unwanted side effects of pretending to be awesome with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two half-hour private guitar lessons at Metal Shop Music in Tarpon Springs (a $40 value).
Under the tutelage of the highly experienced instructors at Metal Shop Music, fledgling strummers will glean useful guitar-playing how-tos during a pair of half-hour private sessions. Students bring their own electric or acoustic palettes on which to paint their musical pictures, and can explore any style, such as classical, Southern rock, or a capella. In the store's music room, beginners meet with local musician Matt Brown, who teaches modern pick style and methods for soothing your instrument when it gets stage fright. Intermediate to advanced scholars will study with chord-shredding master Kirk Andrews as he leads players through tutorials on how to play lead, increase their accuracy, and survive in the unfriendly wilderness of harmonic minor scales.
