Welcome to justinguitar.com - over 1000 completely free guitar lessons!
The best guitar lessons available on the internet - and they're free :)
Nothing to pay, nothing to lose - so take a look around and see why over 30,000 people a day learn guitar here!
There are hundreds of free guitar lessons here and it's taken a lot of work over nearly 15 years for me to create it all. It's important to me to help everyone that wants to learn to play the guitar, not just those with money for tuition, so I run it on an "honour system" and I rely on the honesty of users like your good self to make a donation if they can afford to.
Donations allow me to keep it free, so if you like what I'm doing then please support the site, don't leave it for "everyone else". This site is pretty much my full time gig these days, not a hobby, I want to continue making it THE best place to learn guitar, but I need your support!
Wishing you love, peace and happiness (and a fun guitar journey!), Justin

You remind me of the pure idealism that we had in starting Apple.
If I were young, with time, I'd likely offer to join and help you in your endeavors.
Keep making people happy, not just in their own learning, but in the example you set for them. "

Latest News - December 2016
As usual it's all go in Justin Land. Got a crazy amount to do and had a few problems with servers and other techy stuff the last weeks which is a headache.
Well been a pretty mixed bag the last month... loads of good things but also spent a few days with a norovirus too which wiped me out and still not quite 100%.
Got a LOAD of new song lessons filmed and edited (into December now) which was cool - some awesome tunes too including a 5 done of a new 7 part series on Sweet Child O Mine (GnR) which starts mid Novemnber! And more great songs including Thunderstruck which came out today!
The Reading Music and Reading Rhythm books are now shipping from the the official store mid November. Also working on some cool new merch for Christmas which is fun. Also working hard on a new song app for beginners which is super exciting and think it's going to turn out great, aiming for the end of November for that one, so going to be a busy month! And a rhythm guitar app - so there's a lot on in iOS land. I did have to abandon the Xmas book idea though as the deadline was just after I got ill and so i missed it.
Right now I'm writing from Sochaczew in Poland and it's cold and wet, perfect for catching up on my emails, got through 100 already this morning! Also updating the web site and working on a new ebook to release before Xmas. I really struggle to find time for emails these days so it feels good to be catching up on that kinda stuff. Do wish I'd bought a guitar with me though, but them I wouldn't be catchng up on emails :) ha ha
Still trying to move house which is a nightmare, the system for buying and selling in the UK is plain stupid and full of frustrations and hassle... but still hopefull we'll get this house I want, my current apartment is too small with the baby and getting the stroller upstairs is also a nightmare... time to move on. Also wanna try having my studio at home to save on travel hassle and so I can spend more time with Vivienne - I'm loving the fatherhood journey and it's also somehow made me more productive with the smaller amount of time I have!
Wishing you lots of love and laughter :) J.
Endorsements and stuff I dig..
I'm real fussy about stuff I endorse, I will NEVER ever say to y'all that I play something if I'm not using it and honestly dig it. I do not get paid to use anything, but I do get discounted or free stuff sometimes. I don't have any exclusive deals and often use things not listed below, I'm a bit of gear slut and not particularly faithful ;) Check them out, all seriously great tools for making happy sounds in your ears!
