About Pro Sound HQ

I’m Heather, the person behind Pro Sound HQ. I’ve created this website to help answer as many guitar related questions as I can, using the things I’ve learnt over the past 15 years. 

I was given my first electric guitar for my birthday back in 2005, a Squier Stratocaster, in candy apple red, with a Marshall MG15G starter amplifier. 

Like most beginners I struggled for quite a while and put it down for years before finally picking it back up again around 15 years ago where I put in the time and effort to learn properly

Guides & Articles

The Pro Sound HQ brand first began with this website where I aim to share all that I’ve learnt over the past 15 years of playing the electric, acoustic and bass guitar.

Learning the guitar by yourself can be a frustrating process. In the beginning it can feel like you’re not making any progress at all, and even if you have a bit of experience under your belt, it can be hard to have any direction or goal when you’re practicing so improvements become slow.

I’ve been a member of Guitareo for over a year now and despite having played the guitar for over a decade, I still find myself learning new things with their online courses and I wish I’d have had access to it when I was a complete beginner.
