Become a Gold Level Member and start to advance......

Try the free lessons listed below. The first few lessons, will begin to build your foundation and help you become a successful Guitar Player and Musician.

If you find that you understand my teaching style and would like to learn more about the guitar and become a successful player, then you should become a
Gold Level Member.

I think you will agree, that my technique is unique and original.

My guitar lessons have been on the Internet for over 20 years and copied by many other sites. I remember being one of the first sites out there.

I will take you from the beginning, to the highest level, in a manner that you will actually comprehend the material offered.

The lessons illustrated below, are only a small fraction that is presented in the Gold Level Member's Section.

I'm not proclaiming to be the greatest guitar player or instructor, but I've been around the block a few times. I'm an old time rocker, my band has opened for a few big bands back in the day. I remember Dokken or members in Seattle, and others. When you're in a band and touring, you play with bands you've never heard of and never see again. When you're first starting out, you play anywhere you can.

Back in the 80's, a friend of mine asked me to meet Bruce Springsteen back-stage at the Garden, in New York. That encounter, gave me an opportunity to meet Garry Talent, Bruce's bass player. I lived down the road from him in Jersey, and went to his studio for an audition. I guess the moral of the story is, no matter what level you are, get out there and play and meet other musicians. I've been in the Seattle area for over 30 years now, so we've had few good bands come out of the area.

Those rock and roll days were great, but it's time to pass on the knowledge. The guitar lessons in the Gold Level section, will really open your eyes and help you advance beyond good. It's also great learning material that you may not even know is out there. If you're serious about being a musician, you need to build that foundation. Yes, you can learn to play songs, but if you put the time in to learn what's going on, you will make it. You just need to try.....

Once you've become a Gold Level Member, you will be directed to an area where all the lessons are accessible, with an easy to use navigation system.

The best of luck. Guitar Secrets

Notice that all the notes on the D string below are A notes. It is recommended that you learn how to play all these chords using a different root note. Move the root note up and down the fretboard and figure out the other chords as you move. You can use the blank guitar fret board illustrations to come up with your own chords.

Notice that each note in the tablature is formed by the chord illustrated. To play this smoothly, your fingers must roll slightly. This means that you don't just finger the chords as normal. Go to the arpeggio lesson.
