About Tony's Acoustic Challenge
Tony's Acoustic Challenge (TAC) is a guitar teaching program that conducts online learning sessions in a simple and enjoyable manner. It is hosted by Tony Polecastro, an acoustic guitar performer and teacher. He is also the founder of Acoustic Life and the host of the Acoustic Tuesday Show.
The idea of the online guitar learning program was conceived as a result of Tony’s passion to help his students reap maximum benefits from the classes and also infuse fun and focus to the already ongoing one-to-one direct classes. These are designed for beginners as well as for players who are trying to make a progress.

Gaining mastery in a subject is more easily done when the approach is interesting and fun. The acoustic challenge program is based on three negotiables - 100% positive and supportive environment, guilt-free & stress free and the learning journey should be fun.
All one has to do is log into the website every day and complete the challenge released. A new challenge is released every week day. It works for the students because they get to learn at their time and costs lesser than in-person classes. They can also bookmark and return to any lesson they want and rewind, fast forward and pause. These features help to ensure thorough learning. The increasing base of students is a strong evidence of the facts. The focus areas of this guitar learning program are Technique, Riffs, Soloing, Rhythm and Chord transitions.
Let us now see how the program is designed. TAC is invite only. Those who are interested in trying out need to first request the invite and upon successful completion of the registration process, they would get the access to the program. From then on, their acoustic guitar journey would begin. The daily challenges consist of two parts – Learn and Play. As part of the learning, a video tutorial of Tony Polecastro teaching the Daily Guitar Challenge note-by-note is posted. This helps in easy understanding of the notes. Then in the playing part, students get to play along the slowed down version video. This can be repeated until the player gets comfortable to play on their own. Check out the website to view the short presentation on how this goes and to request an invite.
Other than the guitar learning program, the guitar geek also runs the YouTube channel – Acoustic Life since June 2014. Here, interviews with guitar experts like Tommy Emmanuel, Bob Taylor, Chris Martin of Martin Guitars are regularly published. The channel also features informative content like new folk music album reviews, guitar instruction goodies, acoustic guitar reviews and other fun and inspirational acoustic goodness.
