The top navigation link Learning Paths will take you to songs & courses.

This the song library.

This is the Core Learning System landing page with all the guided courses.

There are 3 primary categories of tutorials on GT.


1. Core Learning System. This is an integrated step by step curriculum of lessons that start at absolute beginner. The idea here is to isolate & streamline the curriculum all in one step-by-step process. Start at the Fundamentals, then work through the style course(s).

2. Song Catalog. This is all the songs GT has the secured the rights to teach.

3. Instructor Directories. These are more specialized topics, sometimes organized in sub-categories. You can view the instructors & their specialty here.

For example, I have over a thousand lesson on various topics, organized by topic or focus. In general, these are for diving deeper into any given concept or technique. They are not necessary per se to the streamlined core learning system, but will help once a student develops more interest in a certain style or technique.

At any level you should look for songs you enjoy, want to play & are close to your skill level. After all, that's why we learn all these ideas & skills, in order to play music! And that happens in the form of songs!


Quite often in the process of learning a song is when you will discover some new concept or technique that you have to learn in order to play the song & improve your guitar playing in general. Or you find a weak area in your knowledge or skill that needs practice & improvement. That's when the more detailed tutorials can help.


Most importantly, if you have a question about a certain topic, or how to do some skill, please ask. The GT database of lessons is enormous. That's one reason the forum is here, to help you find the resources you desire.


Hope this helps!
