Chords

If you learn just a handful of these chords, you can literally play hundreds of songs, so let’s get started!

Beginner chords

Tuning your guitar

In this video, I’ll cover the 2 main methods for tuning your guitar – using a tuner, and tuning by ear.  Even if you have a tuner, it’s important to know how to tune by ear!

 

Song based lessons

 

Kashmir

If you’re looking to rock out with an easy riff, look no further.  Here’s Led Zeppelin’s Kashmir!

 

Are you looking for beginner guitar lessons on the blues?   Check this out…

Blues in E pt 1

I cover the first 8 measures of the 12 bar blues in this lesson.  You’ll learn the E riff and A riff!

Blues in E pt 2

In this lesson, you’ll learn the last 4 bars of the 12 bar blues.  The B riff, the A riff again (only one time!), and then we’ll close it out with what we call a “turnaround”.  This sounds really cool, and is a lot of fun to play.  It has that classic blues sound that you’ll recognize.  I’ll be posting new blues guitar content here soon, so be sure to sign up for updates.
