Welcome to justinguitar.com - over 990 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 - July 2016
Well I'm back 'working' more now, Vivienne (my now 2 month old daughter) is growing up real fast and trying to find a better work/life balance... so working less hours but a lot harder when I do! I've started her holding her Ukulele but she obviously not playing on her own yet, but be interesting to see how soon she can do anything without my direct help, like remember a chord or anything really.
I'm about to sign off the Aussie Classics Songbook which is due out August 8th, so need to get filming some of the lessons for that now too, lots of fun and hope to introduce many outside Australia to some new music! The Note Reading and Rhythm Reading books are also both close to being ready, so it's all going strong.
The Funk course is nearly at an end, so trying to figure out which to hit next... probably be the 2nd Blues Lead Module (learning to play all over the neck) as a lot of rock stuff build from that and it's a better order - but song wise I've been filming and playing more rock - just for fun and i think my site needs more! So some real awesome rock songs coming up for you in July!
Beginner songs are still coming out every Friday but the harder songs are coming out now every Saturday (something for the weekend).
There are just a couple of spots left now on the Funk Workshop in Tuscany in September - they really are all kinds of awesome - you get lessons with Dario Cortese and myself every day and we have a band that comes in the afternoon to jam the songs we learn - so you get great lesson, fun jams, great food and wine and beer, amazing location and the chance to make new guitar friends from all over the globe!! Go check it out!
The Acoustic Guitar For Beginners Workshop for the IGF (International Guitar Foundation) is on July 22nd at Kings Place - might be sold out by now but take a look if you're interested in coming along and expanding your beginner chord and strumming vocabulary!
Hope life is treating you great and you're finding plenty of time to practice (and enjoy yourself!).
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!
