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.

Keep making people happy, not just in their own learning, but in the example you set for them. "

Latest News - October 2016
Sometimes a river don't take the turns you expect.
I got back from Italy a few days ago and been run off my feet with both personal and work stuff. Had a (mild) hack on the web site which I'm still trying to get sorted, been trying to get two books finished off to go to print in a few days (Note Reading and Rhythm Reading) and a bunch of other new projects that needed attention. Planning to spend this coming weekend filming as much new stuff as I can.
The workshops in Italy were awesome fun again and I'm so glad that such awesome people are attracted to them, we have so much fun and the support within the groups for each other is tremendous. The jamming was awesome, the band were grooving and food was incredible.
I thought I was going to move home, but all that has fallen through, back to the drawing board again, starting to get pretty frustrating but hey ho. Had a lovely walk in Richmond Park this morning and reminded me how much I like this little pocket of West London anyhow. And at least I'll have more time to crack back into a load of new lessons and won't have to deal with the massive hassle that is moving house!
NEXT UP: so the priority now is to finish off the Blues Lead 2 course which paused on lesson 7 because I ran out of time before heading out to Tuscany. Also need to get a bunch more beginner and Aussie songs filmed and then crack into more "Saturday Specials" of just generally awesome songs! Also starting work on a Christmas Songbook which I hope to get out this year if I can get it sorted asap!
So no rest for the slightly naughty, I better get stuck into my monster todo list!
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!
