Make music on day one

Most guitar lesson sites force beginners to do boring exercises and drills for months before actually making music. If you’re a beginner at Guitar Tricks you will be making music on day 1, with our beginner Core Learning System.

Every time you learn something new it is immediately put into a musical context to make it more fun! You will be playing simple songs from the beginning.

Learning guitar is a lot easier when you have a step-by-step system to follow. Guitar Tricks lessons are interconnected and organized to get slightly harder as you progress. You watch a video lesson, play along, and then click a “Next” button to go to the next lesson. Lessons have multiple camera angles, guitar tabs, jam tracks and everything else you need to learn.

Forget the old days of endlessly searching through YouTube videos and guitar tabs, learning guitar is easier and faster with our step-by-step system.
