Having One Of The World’s Greatest Teachers.
Just imagine yourself easily learning the
most stunning classical songs ever on the guitar.

IT'S PRACTICALLY CHEATING!
Dear Soon-To-Be Amazing Classical Guitarist,
Meet Lily Afshar, your new Classical Guitar teacher.
Do you want to learn to play the most beautiful, majestic classical guitar songs, almost overnight?
Would you love to transform your classical guitar playing from "amateur" to pro INSTANTLY?
Are you interested in becoming a well-respected, rock-solid classical player that everyone enjoys listening to?
those sound like wild claims, but if you take just 5 minutes to read
this letter, I'll show you how you can do it thanks to one of the best classical guitar teachers in the world.
And I intend to prove it. You might be thinking "How is this possible?"
Together with Lily, we've created what's possibly...
The fastest, easiest,
most effective course ever...
to become a spectacular classical guitarist.
And we want YOU to be a part of it.
Yes, I realize I'm making some bold claims, so I'll reveal why this package
is so different (and better) than anything else out there.
She is a three-time winner of the Annual "Premier Guitarist" awards.
First, I realized a long time ago that I wanted an easy method to play classical guitar.
So, I watched a lot of teachers but something just didn't "feel right".
The videos I saw were either too basic, with obvious information like "make sure you're in tune"
and "practice with a metronome"... or even worse, they're too advanced --
overcomplicating things and bogging you down in brain-numbing theory.
And I also knew that most guitarists didn't want to learn how to read sheet music.
After years of searching, I finally found the PERFECT CLASSICAL GUITAR TEACHER: Lily Afshar. She was the only one qualified to create a really simple system to make classical guitar lessons easy and fun.
I'll share her resume in a second. I'm sure it will blow your mind.
Let me first say that she's the FIRST WOMAN IN THE WORLD TO EARN A PHD IN GUITAR. How cool is that?
And we've filmed everything in beautiful HD video on 3 DVDs. These DVDs will save you years of pain and suffering. And with the easy-to-follow TABS, you'll...
Start Playing Breathtaking Classical Masterpieces Within a Few Fun Days.
Lily is the first woman in the world to gain a Doctorate of Music in guitar performance.
Once you learn the "core basics", you'll be able to apply these pro techniques all over the fretboard even if you're a raw beginner (or a seasoned veteran). And then Lily will progressively guide you to more complex pieces. It's the ultimate step-by-step system.
Listen, I don't want you to get bogged down in diminished, demolished, 13 plus 9s and all of that fancy sounding theory.
And I don't want you to spend months trying to decipher sheet music.
Forget that... I'm sure you've got better things to do.
I want you to start having fun RIGHT AWAY. There's no reason
you should struggle for years learning to play classical guitar!
Fortunately you don't have to struggle.
Here's the simple 1-2-3 formula to learning almost all the most sublime classical guitar songs as fast as humanly possible...
Learning All The Greatest Classical Songs
On The Guitar Is As Easy As 1-2-3.
Step 1: Discover Afshar's "Magic Method".
The first thing Lily does on these DVDs is show you the core techniques that will make learning
any classical piece TEN TIMES EASIER!
Instead of useless theory, you're going to learn how to use basic techniques that will give you a MAGNIFICENT CLASSICAL SOUND.
That's right -- you'll get a rock solid foundation, so you'll be equipped and
prepared to learn classical pieces in record time.
Most of the techniques will be fast and painless to master. It took Lily decades to figure it out,
however with her help, you can learn it all in a few short hours.
Step 2: Relax and Watch Lily Explain the Pieces.
Public Radio International says she's "one of the world's foremost classical guitarists".
Lily is a joy to watch. For starters, she's a beautiful woman :-)
Second, she's a caring, patient teacher that does an amazing job transmitting the lessons on video.
She's truly gifted.
And best of all, she makes it SIMPLE by going right to the essense of each piece
with easy explainations of what you should focus on.
Step 3: Play Along With the Tabs.
Once you've watched the DVDs, you should play along with the tabs.
These tabs make it SO easy... it's practically cheating!
Before these DVDs, if you wanted to learn how to play classical guitar, you would have to learn how to read sheet music.
Congratulations if you can (you're among the few).
You'll get SHEET MUSIC WITH THESE DVDs.
For most of us, it's just too darn time consuming.
Thank God, we've got tabs!
It really demystifies what SEEMS HARD...
Even better, we've got "Powertabs" which makes
learning even FASTER. (More on this later).
So even if you're a RAW beginner, these DVDs are for you.
And if you're advanced -- don't worry. Lily's got some challenging pieces for you.
Let me tell you more about Lily...
