About the author (2005)

Johnny Lee is a lover of music, guitarist, songwriter, and creator of the No B.S. Guitar website, the best-kept secret of self-taught guitarists from over 73 different countries. When he first started learning guitar, he spent the first 3 years really struggling and sounding terrible. He couldn't play like he wanted, and even felt like giving up. But luckily, he didn't. Instead, he went looking for a "guitar teacher." Someone to show him how it was really done. After wasting a ton of time and money on three different guitar teachers... one a "guitar guru" who even had his own column in Guitar World magazine... and still not being able to perform a single song cleanly from beginning to end... he eventually tried a different approach. He found a non-guru... a 23-year old jazz-guitar prodigy... and started taking lessons with him. Within 4 or 5 lessons, this new teacher helped him turn it all around and make more progress in 6 weeks than he had previously made in 6 months. The rest was history. Johnny was able to teach himself the guitar, effectively, from that point forward, never paying for a single lesson more. He quickly went on to perform regularly at a local cocktail bar, to the astonishment of his friends. In 2010, Johnny started No B.S. Guitar to see if the strategies he discovered could be used by other guitar students to improve their ability to learn, just as they did for him. What happened next was astounding. In a matter of months, the emails came pouring in. Case after case... people were sharing their success stories on how these ideas had changed their playing and their lives... all in a very short time. Since then, No B.S. Guitar has matured into one of the premier sources of accurate information, useful knowledge, and uplifting inspiration for scores of self-taught guitarists from over 73 different countries. Johnny's lessons have appeared on top guitar websites such as Ultimate-Guitar, GuitarNoise, and many others.
