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 35,000 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 - November 2017
Still struggling to keep all my plates spinning but got a load of thing finished off this last month and some exciting projects launched and more getting closer!
The massive update to my Time Trainer Metronome is out, and as well as a cosmetic update, we've improved almost every aspect of the app and added a whole new song and setlist feature so you can now store you settings for specific songs or practice routines and get them back easily. A feature I wanted myself for some time and I know many of you did too (the android version will also be getting an update in the near future but still trying to work out the best way to do it!). We're working on an updated Tap Tempo feature for it, the old one was not really great) and will hopefully be ready for the next update. The One Minute Changes also got a refresh and the Ear Trainer too! All the apps are getting updated for iOS11, the awesome team at LeafCutter are on it and working hard as they can! Reviews and rating are really helpful if you dig the updates please take the time to do it, and if you're unhappy with the app - please get in touch and give us a chance to fix it!
My new Ear Training Exercises audio tracks are live on iTunes and Amazon (downloads, not streaming!) - easiest to just search for JustinGuitar, the links seem country specific and make it harder than just a simple search. Each of the 3 volumes has 10 tracks of various instruments to test your interval Ear Training :) I used to make things like this to test myself on a train - you hear the interval 3 times and then I say the answer for you, so no messing about writing things down etc. If you doing the (free!) Ear Training course then they are sure be of benefit and help show your support!
I've also just released the new Jam Modes Backing Track collection (also on iTunes and Amazon) which was LOADS of fun to make, my great mate Dave Marks and I book a bunch of great session player friends and we jam! We edit up the best bits and this collection will be incredible for people learning about modes (the modes course on my site is next big module to tackle when the new site change is done! We also re-branded all the Jam Series and they'll all be back for sale shortly!
We've alos added LOADS of awesome New Tee Shirts in the official store! We have a lot of fun with these and I wear them myself for most of the new videos. If you want guitar tee shirts then we got em! :) I've been working mostly on thenew web site which is going well but there is LOADS to do and while it's going to be awesome it's a ton of work. It's also very expensive to hire in great developers so if you been thinking about donating a while and not quite found the time, then now would be a great time to help out! I'm moving from a hand coded site (this one) to an automated CMS where you'll be able to log in and get access (still free!) to a heap of new incredible featires which I'll talk about when it's going live - but it's ausch a big step up for the site, seriously gonna rock it!
OK, I've gotta get todays new video launched (Handle With Care) and the remaining Jam albums uploaded, then write the newsletter, write all the new Ear Training series web pages, transcribe the next batch of songs to do lessons on and work on the new site with the developers. Gonna be a busy one! :) Laters potata's!
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!
