Welcome to justinguitar.com - over 980 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 - June 2016
Well my daughter just had her 1 Month Birthday :) and it's amazing! It's not without stress as any of you with kids will know - but whole thing really is incredible, even better than I'd hoped! She's growing very fast and very engaged already and I spend a little time with her each day introducing her to good music - will start on Ukulele lessons soon! :)
So I'm gradually adjusting to the new normal and getting back to 'work' - I've got a bunch more songs to film, more funk lessons... almost finished the new Aussie Songbook and also got two more books almost finished, one on Note Reading (with Dario Cortese) and one on Rhythm Reading (with Justin Scott) which should all be out in September-ish.
The Funk Course is motoring along and I've got a bunch of funk songs transcribed and ready to film which will sync up with it great - I just did Cissy Strut by the Meters a couple of days ago and you an expect more funk classics coming very soon!
Managed to get some more Beginner Songs filmed last week so still on track for keeping them coming out every Friday too.
The Acoustic Guitar For Beginners Workshop for the IGF (International Guitar Foundation) on July 22nd at Kings Place is selling well - it's limited to 30 places and not many spots left so get in there soon if you wanna come along! I think there are still a few spots left on week two of the Funk Workshop in Tuscany in September - these really are amazing if you fancy a week playing guitar, eating amazing food and having fun!
No other exciting news for you really - just dealing with this new Dad experience and trying to make time to work! Hope life is treating you great and you're getting lots of time to practice.
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!
