Free Guitar Lessons Online

Free Guitar Lessons OnlineThe internet has changed a lot of things for guitar players, one of the coolest things is that you can now find tons of free guitar lessons online.

Providing free guitar lessons online is in fact the mission of GuitarTipsWeekly.com, with the added bonus that if you enter your name and email in the form at the top right of this page, I’ll send you a free guitar lesson each week via email! Most of these guitar lessons are taught by myself or other guitar instructors, and are for the most part videos. A lot of the free guitar lessons online are simply text, however I believe video is a richer media for teaching, so we try to use it as often as possible!

The biggest question though is not whether or not you want to learn guitar – after all, you probably wouldn’t be here if you didn’t! But rather, it is what do you want to learn on the guitar? This question is itself a function of where you’re at as a guitar player. Free guitar lessons online only help if you’re learning things that are useful right?

Let’s keep it fairly simple here; depending on where you’re at as a player, I’ll give you a few ideas for free guitar lessons to get you started!

Introducing the Riff Ninja!

Riff Ninja GuitarToday the curtain is starting to get pulled back on my latest project… and it might be a little different than you might expect! (video below)

Let me back up, oh… say about 15 years. I met Colin Daniel when I was in high school looking for a guitar teacher. He’s the guy that really got me started on the guitar, and taught me most of what I know about the instrument. In the years that I took lessons with him, I was amazed at his skill on the guitar, his depth of experience as a musician, and his skill as a teacher. I’ve seen Colin quite literally take the students that other guitar teachers had completely written off as being unteachable, and turn them into great musicians. It seems the harder the case, the harder Colin tries to find a way to connect with that student. Tone deaf? Not a problem; he’s fixed that too.

Colin had a unique way of approaching the guitar that I’d not seen before, despite having learned music theory for several years in school. Colin’s lessons made it ‘click’ with me; turning theory into incredibly practical and useful applied knowledge – and I trust I’ve been able to pass that on to some of you as well, through my Unlocking The Guitar series of guitar lessons.

Over his 40+ years as a musician, Colin has personally trained well over 5000 musicians, some purely for their own personal pleasure, some like me have gone on to teach others, and some that have literally ‘gone pro’ and now live off their skill on the guitar.

Anyways, in recent years I’ve been back jamming with Colin on a regular basis, and I really wanted to find a way to bring him to you… thus the Riff Ninja project was born.

In the following video, I’ve interviewed Colin to introduce him to you a bit. We go back a long ways, and I can assure you he is a absolute treasure trove of musical knowledge, not to mention the craziest guy I’ve ever met. (I say that in a good way!)

As you’ll hear in the interview, Colin and I have put together a course on improvising, which is going to be our first offering under the Riff Ninja name. If you’d like to keep up with what’s happening with Riff Ninja (and I can assure you, there’s going to be a LOT happening there!), or if you’d advanced notice about the details on the improvising lesson, I encourage you to enter your name and email in the form directly below to join the Riff Ninja newsletter.
