Click any lesson below to start:


Lesson 1 focuses on simple left hand development and introduces the C major and A minor chords.

Lesson 2 will get you moving up the fretboard and introduces 8th note strumming, G major, and E minor chords.

The picking exercise in Lesson 3 will get you playing backwards on guitar.

Building on the idea of Lesson 3, Lesson 4 works your finger down the fretboard and I start mixing up the chords that you've learned over the previous lessons.

Lesson 5 will have you picking across multiple strings while reinforcing your open chord skills.

Lesson 6 continues the inside/outside picking technique of Lesson 5 while introducing E major and A major chords.

Lesson 7 will start mixing up your picking skills while introducing the D major chord.

You've learned several chords and you're developing picking techniques. Put simply, wishing you could play guitar is now in the past because you ARE playing guitar!

Lesson 9 keeps you moving forward with a new picking exercise and introduces the D minor chord.

As you begin Lesson 10, keep in mind that even though some things in music may seem easy, the benefits they bring to your technique may be unmeasurable.
