You have renewed my dream of playing guitar…

I picked up a guitar five months ago but was not able to play any songs. In four days with you I’m now playing parts to three songs and one riff. You have renewed my dream of playing the guitar.

The right advice and direction…

The right advice and direction when taking up something like the guitar. Easy to follow instruction and video. The site is uncomplicated and easy to move around. I would recommend your site to any of my friends.

Russell - Sydney Australia

It makes all the difference…

I searched the net and after searching, found this site which for me was easy to follow. I have all the lessons at my disposal, I can go as fast as I want, even go back if I wish. Plus there are the individual emails and videos. And because I have it installed on my net book, I take my guitar and tutor with me wherever and whenever I wish. Plenty of encouragement from Keith when its needed, more like an old buddy than a tutor, it makes all the difference.

E Chord Strumming

Lesson Goals:

° Learn the right hand down stroke technique
° Learn the right hand up stroke technique
° Become familiar with the music staff and notation
° Learn alternating down and up stroke pattern

Now that we know how to form the E chord we can begin working on learning strumming techniques.

Start by practicing down strokes as illustrated to the right. For now just work on getting smooth strokes with all 6 strings ringing clearly.

Do this slowly and keep a steady tempo to begin with and then you can gradually speed up.

Next we will work on up strokes. Again, we are not too concerned with speed at this stage. Just play them slow and at a steady tempo until you feel comfortable with the movement.

Now we can………
