This is ‘My Guitar Teacher’ Guitar Course – personal lessons from me to you.
Here you will find my free online guitar lessons. I set up the my guitar teacher website specifically to be able to offer the highest quality tuition for free.
These will be in a guitar course modular format so the learning naturally flows with ten short video lessons per module. These will take the complete beginner from someone who has never touched a guitar before through all the stages to becoming a competent player. These free modules are a full course covering the basic elements you need to start teaching yourself – ‘my guitar teacher’ is you….That is the whole point!!
If you learn the rules and methods by which the guitar works and how music is made, soon you’ll be able to work things our for yourself. No learning by rote without any real understanding. You will derive much more pleasure out of playing because when you hear songs you like you will be able to work out how to play them by listening to them rather than laboriously go through tablature. You’ll hear the chord sequences and be able to translate this to the fretboard. My guitar teacher offers these completely free online lessons from an experienced teacher, imparting 35 years of experience in a simple, clear and easy to understand manner to save you making the same mistakes I did !! My aim here is to show you how to play the guitar as it I am teaching myself at the age of 14 or 15 when I was learning from books, spending hours and hours in music shops (Musical Exchanges in Birmingham almost every Saturday) watch the occasional video (they were £30 each in 1984!!!) and picking up what I could from wherever I could. This is all the stuff I wish I had known earlier.
