Guitar Lessons for Beginners Series
A buddy of mine and I have gone through the trouble of putting together a simple yet very power series of guitar lessons together on the web for you.  The information in these online web lessons is enough to take you from never having picked up a guitar to playing solos over your own self recordings in seven lessons and about 2 hours learning time (and maybe 20 hours of practice time to get enough dexterity and feel).  Online lead guitar lessons are a great and inexpensive way to dip your toe in the water.

If you already know a little bit about guitar, by the end of this series you’ll know more about the guitar and why things sound the way they do than most guitarists ever know.  Without further adieu, here are the lessons in all their glory.

Guitar Lessons for Beginners Series:
Mastering Chords – Beginner Guitar Chords
Mastering Riffs – Simple Beginner Chords and Patterns
Guitar Note Chart – For Both Novice and Advanced Guitarists
Lead Guitar Notes Played in Two Positions
Metal Guitar Scale to Use with a Im-IV-Vm Chord Progression
Lead Guitar Exercises to Make You Blistering Fast and Accurate
Guitar Scale Exercises That Will Stretch Your Ability and Warm You Up Daily

You can also find more advanced and complete lessons on which this series has been based and additional free video demonstrations here.

Free Guitar Guru Session | Free Metal Guitar Lessons Online

Well friends the down economy makes desperate times for desperate measures in some industries, and it would appear that the economic hard times have hit the music instructors too.

Intense competition has really made for some cool opportunities to ‘try before you buy’ any of the available guitar lessons online.  One example is the free guitar guru song this month.  Each month a new song is available free here from the makers of guitar guru, which if you haven’t read about it before, is just about the coolest guitar tablature program ever made for your PC.  You can see a demonstration at the guitar songs tablature story.

Another great free offer currently running is from my long time mentor, Doug Marks.  He is offering complete sample beginner lessons free online.  The lessons are taken from his complete basic course (which runs about $70 if memory serves).  I’m not sure how long Doug will run his free guitar lessons online but you can check them out free at the ‘Doug Marks’ link above.

Keep rockin’!

Tablature Guitar Songs on PC – Learn to Play Guitar with Your Computer

Tablature Guitar Songs on Computer – a new way to learn how to learn to play guitar.  I’ve recently been exposed to a new way to learn how to play the guitar.  The method involves using a piece of software on the computer to visually display the fretboard and appropriate fingering.  As the notes play through the speakers on the computer the correct fingering and string picking or strumming is displayed visually as a fretboard and color coded finger circles.  The program is hands-free using voice commands to activate the program and also change how the program operates.  Available commands include “play slower” and “play faster” to vary playing speed as the student’s playing ability increases. 

Better still about this program is that it teaches how to play contemporary songs on the guitar, making motivation to learn less of an issue.  Students learn favorite songs on guitar right on screen and get the opportunity and motivation to practice proper fingering and technique at whatever speed matches their present playing ability.

Presently 1400 contemporary songs have been setup as “sessions” available for download with more being added every day.  These lessons represent a tremendous leap forward in students ability to use multiple senses to improve both learning speed and thoroughness of mastery.  Combined with a complete DVD lesson set on proper technique and music theory anyone wish to learn how to play the guitar will advance quickly.
