GUITAR LESSONS - by Bradley Laird
HOW TO GET STARTED
Are you looking for free guitar lessons online? Well, you've come
to the right place! It's worth the trip here just for the free chord chart download. I have been playing guitar, banjo, mandolin and upright bass since 1975 and
teaching since 1982. This material is compiled from the things I used in the teaching of guitar
lessons for my
private students over many years. Recently, I decided to put them on the web
and give them away for free. Be sure to bookmark THIS PAGE so you can easily come back here whenever you want to put some time in on your lessons.
To extend your knowledge I also have produced an eBook called Bluegrass Guitar 101 which breaks down the essence of bluegrass style by teaching you 10 more songs, bass runs which transport you from one chord to the next and even a chapter on bluegrass harmony singing.
But, first I suggest that you cruise through these free lessons:
INDEX OF FREE GUITAR LESSONS:

This is a complete
beginning acoustic guitar introduction with a bluegrass emphasis. You will learn how to tune and how to play basic strum patterns.
You will learn basic acoustic guitar chords. From time to time I will provide links to video lessons to help your playing progress. Have fun!
