How To Learn To Play The Guitar

Today it is much easier to learn anything you have an interest to learn, I only had two choices how to learn to play the guitar when I was a boy. I started taking guitar lessons from the local music store where I bought my first guitar from, you would find most music store provided this service to encourage people to purchase musical instruments in those days. I did learn the basics from the music shop lessons to play my new guitar, but I had much more in mind I wanted to learn how to play like the great guitar players of my time. The second option at that time was to teach yourself advanced guitar techniques from Hal Leonard Music Books, so this is how I learned to play the guitar when I was just a young boy.

How To Learn To Play The Guitar Today

As I mentioned in my first paragraph today it is much easier to learn anything you want to know, and yes that even includes learning how to play the guitar. I can safely say most of you more likely spend time on YouTube, you can take advantage of YouTubes free videos and this is one method you can learn how to play the guitar. Even though YouTube provides free guitar lesson videos I want to suggest another method for you to learn to play the guitar online for free.

My Recommendations

What Is On My Mind Today?

This post was intended to inform anyone interested in learning to play the guitar for free to do so, I have no connection to Justin at all. I just stumbled upon his YouTube videos while watching guitar videos one day, so I checked out his free guitar lesson website and thought this would be awesome for beginners to know about and learn for free.











  • Luke says:

    Great post Jeff! I have always wanted to learn to play a musical instrument (have no musical attributes 🙂 and it looks playing a guitar may be by best bet.

    Sounds like Justin is offering his service which I am sure many individuals will take advantage of. I like the idea of learning to do this from the privacy of your own home and receiving these lessons at no cost!

    Thanks for providing this information, and I will definitely take a look at the YouTube videos provided by Justin.

      Hello Luke
      You might just surprise yourself by learning to play the guitar, I don’t believe there is anyone
      who is not able to learn to play the guitar if they have the right learning tools and the patience.

  • Christina says:

    I love free. Free guitar lessons are a plus. I can learn at my own pace too which is important for me. I do not have a lot of time to learn or make a commitment to a schedule. To be able to do it when convenient is better than setting up a real-time schedule. I have found a lot of information of great value from this site and motivation to get me to try to learn guitar again. At 45 I thought maybe it was too late. You made me believe it is not. Thank you for that.

    • admin says:

      Hello Christina
      I am happy you are becoming a little more motivated and interested in learning to play the guitar,
      you might need a smaller guitar if you are a small built person. Many times a guitar which is too
      large makes it just too difficult for people to handle to reach the frets to play the guitar

  • John says:

    I have to share this with my son. he wants to learn to play the guitar.

    • admin says:

      Hello John
      The guitar would be a very good hobby for your son, you can benefit so much
      from music and I am doing my best to help people like your son get started
      in learning how to play the guitar.

  • Suzi says:

    This was a very interesting post, Jeff! When I was younger, I competed in piano competitions, but was never able to reach an octave! Maybe I should have taken guitar lessons instead! I liked the way you included the different stages that Justin uses to teach someone to play. And, if it’s free…there’s really nothing to lose!
    This was a very informative and well thought out post! Thank you for sharing:)

    • admin says:

      Hello Suzi
      I thank you for reading and commenting on my post,
      you are never too old to learn to play the guitar
      or any musical instrument.

    Thank you for the amazing article! I liked the story about your first guitar lessons. I agree that today is much easier to learn almost anything thanks to different free and paid courses online. I also liked the video responding to some of the beginners’ common questions.

    Thanks again,
