Spending the lockdown at home and also have a guitar, but never have had the time to learn anything handy? Here is your chance to channel the inner musician in you. Social distancing won’t let you hire a real tutor and you may also not want to splurge on expensive online lessons. But good-old YouTube has got you covered. There are many channels offering beginners to advanced guitar lessons on the famous video platform. For your convenience, we compile a list of some of the very best guitar lesson channels.
JamPlay is actually a website that offers paid, structured lessons for students of all levels. But its YouTube channel also has free lessons. It’s surprising how a channel with such good lessons has only 270k subscribers. JamPlay covers all levels of guitar lessons, including guitar guides for beginners to follow along with, as well as challenge lessons for expert guitarists, mixed in with song tutorials and playing styles broken down into simple steps.
GuitarJamz on YouTube is where you get to see Marty, the guitar tutor adored by more than two million subscribers and many more visitors. Marty is one of the most patient and thorough guitar teachers on YouTube and runs all of his lessons at the perfect pace for beginners. There are also guest videos, where famous guitarists explain various techniques for players of all levels.
Now this channel is for the more experienced or for beginners who’re at least acquainted with the basics. Ben Eller Guitars will not teach you another chord progression chart or a guitar cover of a pop song; it’ll give you an idea of what you’re doing wrong with the instrument and how you can make it right.
The channel has a series called ‘This Is Why You Suck at Guitar’, which covers the basics to help you improve your guitar skills and correct the bad habits that are slowing down your progress.
