youtube videos

Most of my lessons on YouTube will either supplement the course material here or provide additional resources for those already finished the beginner courses. Rather than trawling through YouTube this page enables you to filter the list to find musicianship or song lessons for different types of guitars. Lessons marked EZ will be referenced in the main courses while intermediate and advanced lessons are better attempted once you've finished and have some solid skills under your belt. As always let me know how you go.

For intermediate and advanced players, this one will help you play notes based on the sound that they make.



The fewer the strings, the less options you have for notes to pick, that's just how it is. When it comes to phrasing however there's no limit to what you can do so learning how to use this to your advantage makes sense.
