At this website you will find free beginning to intermediate guitar lessons provided through videos with musician Brian Roughton, who happens to be a homeschool dad.

We learned about this site from Brian who wrote…

“I am a homeschooling parent who has taught guitar for the past 14 years. Recently I created a website to serve as a free teaching resource for homeschooled students who are interested in learning to play guitar. It is intended to guide a student from the earliest stages to an intermediate level without the need for outside assistance. I will be adding more lessons over time in order to cater to students who are more advanced.”

When you get to the site you’ll see an introduction.  Use the horizontal menu above it to access the lessons that include: 

  • Basic Chords – Enjoy guitar video lessons that teach you how to play basic chords.
  • Strumming – Learn the best techniques for strumming the guitar.
  • Bar Chords – Take video lessons to learn how to play bar chords.
  • Intermediate lessons – lessons that are aimed at improving left hand technique
  • Learning songs by ear – a few written lessons on playing by ear
  • Music Theory for guitarists – textural lessons on theory as applied to guitar playing
  • And more.

You’ll also find tips for practicing guitar and you can watch videos of Brian’s students playing guitar. Read the “About Me” section, located under the Brian Roughton link to review Brian’s impressive qualifications to teach guitar.

The information and lessons are presented in a very user-friendly format. The material is well-organized and easy to understand. This is a terrific resource for those who want to learn to play guitar.
