Beginner Guitar Lessons
Getting started as a beginner is all about developing solid early skills while playing music that sounds good and makes you feel like you're making progress. All our Music Coach modules for beginners use video, real audio, and guitar animations to help you get started in the right way and at your own pace.
What’s really important though, is that with every new skill you learn, whether it's a chord, a technique, or a tune, you'll get to play a cool piece of music. None of us started playing guitar because we wanted to play scales and exercises all the time, so we've designed modules for you that combine good learning techniques with music you’ll really enjoy playing.
If you're a complete beginner, First Lessons for Guitar is a great module for you, particularly if you're learning on an acoustic guitar. (Check out First Lessons for Electric Guitar if you have an Electric). You'll learn basic chords, how to strum, play tunes, use a pick, read guitar music, tune-up, and play with other people.
As a beginner you need all the help you can get and we've left nothing to chance by giving you some of the most detailed guitar video ever shot. By the end, playing guitar will feel completely natural to you and people will think you've been playing for ages. More...
If you consider yourself a beginner level guitarist but have already been through the very basics, Guitar Improver is the ideal module for you. We've put together a program that sharpens up your technique, and introduces new chords, tunes and accompaniment styles.
What we've also done is to give you some great party pieces to play, so you can really show off your skills. Learning a few solos like this, plus developing your all round skills and knowledge, is exactly the way to move your playing on to the next level. More...
