Beginners Find a Home at Guitar Tricks
Getting started learning guitar can be frustrating - real frustrating. At Guitar Tricks we have been teaching guitar online for 10 years. So we know what works...and what doesn't. Our third generation course - Guitar Fundamentals - will teach you everything you need to know from the ground up. This program has been rigorously tested by thousands of guitarists to be easy, step-by-step and most of all - complete.

Are You Experienced?
Many online guitar resources are great for beginners, but lacking for experienced guitarists. Not Guitar Tricks. For 10 years we have been recruiting and showcasing some of the most gifted instructors in every imaginable guitar style. With Guitar Tricks you can gain mastery of advanced techniques such as hybrid picking, modal theory, sweep picking arpeggios, alternate tunings, classical fingerpicking and more.

Birthplace of Online Guitar Lessons
10 years ago we at Guitar Tricks invented online multimedia guitar lessons. If you have ever experienced the frustration of learning from CDs, DVDs, or books, you will appreciate the integrated nature of our approach. Guitar Tricks' third generation online teaching method ensures that you will learn with minimum effort and maximum success.

Jamplay is hitting it big in the guitar world. Their website is a membership only service which broadcasts high-definition video guitar lessons. They have brought together guitar instruction with interactivity... even allowing you to ask questions to their video instructors. They feature 4-5 guitar instructors to give you a selection in teaching methods, which is a big plus.

They teach by "lesson set" instead of just flopping out a ton of small video clips. They start with the very basics like tuning your guitar, finger placement, and basic chords, and move on to finger-picking, palm muting, hammer ons, pull offs, and many more advanced topics as you progress through the lessons. We found this surprisingly good for the overall experience, because you can follow through these lesson sets just how you would with a normal guitar teacher. Biggest thing is, it's cheap as well because they get so many members.
