How long will it take to become a BIG DAWG Guitar Player

It really depends on how much time you have to practice and how well you play chords today. An experienced player who has the time to practice and masters at least one new Skill Set per week can expect to complete the course in 6 to 9 months. However, most players should anticipate a 12-month learning process.
