In the world we live in today it sometimes shocks us to find some things are still free and without a catch, but it’s true. On of those things is getting free guitar lessons or ecourses online and even songs with guitar chords for you to learn right at home.
I’m just about 60 and didn’t actually learn to play acoustic guitar until I was 47 years old. I tried learning how to play guitar back in the mid 70s and didn’t succeed. I ended up giving up and giving away my guitar and books. I even hired a guy to come to my house to teach me but he just wasn’t a people person and shouldn’t have been trying to teach. I kicked his sorry ass out the door after just three lessons.
It wasn’t until 20 years later when the Internet was available to me that I started finding more and more sites about learning to play guitar and a lot of free guitar related sites. Then along came Youtube and my interest in learning to play acoustic guitar returned like a tidal wave.
The Freedom of Free Guitar Lessons
I have a membership with Jamorama.com so I can learn more and more but prior to that I learned most of what I know because of the free content, including videos, I found online. Youtube is by far my favourite site for both learning and sharing about how to play guitar as a beginner all the way to advanced.
The only downside to using the net for free content is that it’s scattered all over the place meaning you’ll need to go from site to site. But hey, I did it and learned a lot before joining Jamorama to learn more advanced lessons. Wish I had started with them as I spent a lot of time searching for the exact stuff I needed where Jamorama has it all in one place, just like JamPlay.com does.
How To Find Free Guitar Lessons Online
If you don’t think there are a lot of people who want to “learn how to play guitar online” just do a search in Google for that phrase and you’ll find about 60 million pages. Fortunately you don’t have to search through all of those to find the best as Google does a great job of giving us the best content for our search phrase.
Check Out YouTube For Free Guitar Lessons
I go to Youtube.com for free guitar lessons almost every single day. Most of the time it’s to find songs I hear on the radio I like and want to learn. To do this I look for the song, the artist and the word ‘cover’ which usually gets me a list of those doing cover songs. I will also add the word guitar into the search to be sure I find those playing guitar.
You can search for ‘learning guitar chords’ as a way to learn more chords. I like looking for ‘guitar riffs’ or ‘guitar licks’ to learn some cool things that impress my guitar jam buddies.
