This Is Learn Guitar With David Brent

David Brent is the man behind the fictitious character Ricky Gervais who played a supporting role in the British mockumentary "Life's Too Short" starring Warwick Davis who is also better known for his role as the Ewok Wicket in Star Wars - Return of the Jedi, but as this has nothing to do with this article, I won't mention Warwick Davis again.

David Brent on the other hand, does have something to do with this article because it's mostly about him.

However, in a cruel twist of fate, David did not become a house-hold name famous for his music.

So what does a washed up manager, come washed up paper sales rep, come washed up musician, do to capitalize on his forgotten 15 seconds of fame?

He becomes a guitar teacher, of course.

Here is what you can expect from his lessons about guitar, and life:

This new show staring David Brent will begin on May 20th as a YouTube series on The Ricky Gervais Channel.

And if you're wondering what David has been doing recently....
