Are you one of those people who's always going on about learning to play the guitar without ever actually doing anything about it?

Well, we can't think of a better opportunity than this. Next month, Galway musician Dave Donoghue will be aiming to host the world's longest ever guitar lesson at a grand total of 24 hours.

'The Guitarathon' will take place at Monroe's Side Bar in Galway on Friday April 14th and organisers are expecting about 400 people to be involved. 

It's all in aid of Jigsaw Galway, a confidential support service for young people in the Galway area. 

All guitars will be provided and Dave, who runs Kaizen Guitar in the city says:

"We intend to play a significant role in the future of guitar education, making it as fun and as accessible as possible for all ages and abilities. It’s all about the individual and what their interests and passions are. Kaizen is the practice of continuous improvement. It’s all about enjoyment and learning through the persons interests be it sport, reading, music or art."

We don't know about you but we reckon this sounds like great craic. Kids from the age of 10 up are also encouraged to take part so it's seems it'll be fun for all ages and there's a chance to be part of a world record. It doesn't get much better than that.

More information can be found on 'The Guitarathon' Facebook page.
