Beginner

Once you know the basic chords and can play several songs, learning styles branch quickly. Aside from music taste (Metal players will learn Barre Chords, while folk players will pick up finger picking techniques), players also vary widely in learning style and interest.

Tablature has become a huge influence on learning, and has made sight reading less critical to success. However many users still have difficulty learning timing and so wherever possible, we try to combine video with tablature and staff reading as well. If this is your first visit to guitar-learning, take some time to explore the lessons of our different teachers and try to find the ones whose style suits you.

You should also sign up for our newsletter – don’t miss out on hearing about new teachers and lessons (as well as contests and special offers – find out more here).

If you are looking for new songs, check out what is available in tabSMART. Perhaps you are ready to see what guitar-learning has to offer the advanced player.
