Rock Star Dreams Still Possible

Even stuffy adults can still live out their ultimate rock star fantasies.

LONDON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Just because you had to grow up and get a “real job” it doesn’t mean all dreams of rock stardom are shot.

So says John Blackwood, who’s helping those who’ve dreamed of jamming out on an axe like Jimmy Page before a crowd of screaming fans with his website rockguitarlesson.org.

On there, he provides cheap online classes in chord progression, strumming, and everything else it takes to produce rock music.

Blackwood says he loved playing his guitar as a teen, but as he grew older and had adult responsibilities he had to put down his axe.

Now, he’s saving others from sacrificing their dream by creating a course he feels is “organized in a way so you could get to enjoying music as soon as possible.”

Though he can’t promise to turn anyone into a “rock god overnight,” he’s giving students the building blocks that can lead to that “great, face-melting solo.”
