Welcome to justinguitar.com - over 960 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 - May 2016
Been crazy busy the last month but doesn't feel like it's been as productive as usual because so much of what I've been up to has been not been filming new lessons but got exciting things in the works that I'm sure will be making the site super awesome when they eventually roll out. And been spending a load of time writing and planning new lessons, just not actually filming them.
Last nights Live Stream show was very cool with an unusually high number of great questions (I thought anyhow) and the next one will be in 2 weeks (16th) but there's a chance it won't happen for reasons that may become apparent soon... an exciting personal project. Always best to check out the post on Facebook to get the links and find out what is going on.
The Essential Blues Lead Guitar series is rolling along, over halfway now and I really got the next series of the Blues or The Funk filmed and edited to keep it rolling. Got a huge list of things to get filmed this week and I'm hoping I'll really be able to get a load of stuff done as I've cleared the diary to make time to just rip out a mega filming week. It's tricky sometimes to keep all the plates spinning but I'm gladually finding help so I can focus on what I do best - making lessons :)
Going to spend today working out a filming schedule and work out what to do in what order - but there's so much to do and so little time ;) But I'm loving every second...
Hope life is treating you great and you're having a load of fun with your 6 string friend.
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!
