How to Play Guitar
Hey, and welcome to "Chainsaw Guitar Tuition", your source of some of the best online guitar lessons on the Internet. If you want to learn how to play guitar- while also rocking your face off- you've found the right place!
Where to start
If you look over to the menu on the left, you'll find free lessons that will take you right from the beginnings of guitar playing, to the more advanced stuff. If you're looking for where to start, click the "beginner guitar" link in the side menu. Here I'll take you through right from buying your first guitar, to tuning it up and playing your first chords!
For the more advanced
For those of you who are more advanced players, there is also a link to tuning notes for various different guitar tunings, scale tabs (and scale diagrams- with notes on how to solo), and lessons on how to get the most from your practise time.
There is also a specific section on how to properly set up your guitar (intonation, string height, etc) to make your guitar as easy to play as possible- all for free!
Learn Music Theory
If you really want to get into how to play a guitar, there is also a section of this website dedicated to music theory for guitar. This is where you can learn how to apply the theory of music to your own guitar playing.
...because I don't believe that music theory should be something you learn in school, or from a textbook. You should be able to apply this all to actually playing something!
Also, if you have any questions or suggestions, please don't hesitate to contact me via the link at the bottom of each page.
"When I look at a sheet of music it doesn't look like a completely different language to me anymore!
I would 100% recommend Rob!"
