Give the Gift of Guitar this Holiday Season with Fret Zealot
We all have people on our holiday shopping list who are a little hard to pair with the perfect gift. Maybe they have mentioned they'd like to learn guitar for months now but have never gotten started. Or maybe they've been playing guitar, bass, or ukulele, and you've no idea what you can gift them to support this hobby.
Or, they might have tried guitar lessons in the past without success but love music so much that you think they'd like to try it again.
Never fear, as radio and music lovers ourselves, these are our people, and we have some great gift ideas for music lovers of all ages and abilities.
Our favorite way to learn guitar, bass, and ukulele at any age or ability (beginner to pro) is Fret Zealot. It's been called the "Netflix of Music Education" because it's a huge online vault of music lessons and song tutorials that teach everything from music theory to basic instrument skills to specific songs by their favorite artists. They even have lessons on how to properly maintain your guitar!
Most lessons are 20 minutes or so, which means musicians can work on the skills they want as they have time. They also have an optional LED system with lights that are installed on the fretboard to show musicians exactly where to press; it's been shown to help musicians learn five times faster.
Without further ado, here are our favorite ideas:
For a stocking-stuffer: Fret Zealot All-Access Pass
