Resource Guide

I thought it would be helpful to make a guitar resource section of my site.

Below is some of the best information I have found over the years!

Online Guitar Teachers:

Marty Schwartz - In my opinion, Marty is one of the best guitar teachers I have ever come across.  Check out my review and experience him for yourself through his YouTube channel.

Desi Serna - When it comes to learning guitar music theory, Desi Serna is the man.  I first learned about him through his free iTunes podcast.  He has some terrific DVD and written material for intermediate and advanced players.

Justin Sandercoe - Justin is a fantastic guitar teacher covering all sorts of songs and playing techniques through his website,  He also has an extremely popular YouTube channel, showing people step-by-step how to play load of great songs all for free.

Online Guitar Courses: - I, along with my co-founder, have developed a free course on guitar as well as premium Beginner and Beyond Beginner courses using the Rule of 80/20!  If you focus on the 20%, you can play more than 80% of the popular songs out there.  It's a great rule to know and I encourage you to download our free course!

Online Guitar Blogs:

Check out my list of instructional guitar blogs, with a goal of helping you to become a better player!  If you know of other guitar blogs that meet this criteria, please contact me to add them to the list.


Ovation - I love the design and sound of Ovation guitars! This was my first guitar purchase and I still enjoy playing them. Overall, I think they are great for a beginner and not too expensive, especially if you are just starting to play

Washburn - In addition to Ovation guitars, I also really like the feel of my acoustic Washburn guitar.  It has a classic feel to it and stays in tune very well.  It's also a more affordable guitar, compare to the higher end models like Martin and Taylor.


Snark - The Snark tuner is awesome!  It's small, adjustable, looks stylish and attaches to the headstock of the your guitar.  With a nice, clear LED screen, it gets the job done when it comes to tuning the strings of a guitar.

The great thing about playing guitar is that you don't need much to get started! I recommend these offerings because they have been extremely helpful to me over the years. I hope that they can also help you achieve your goals in learning and playing guitar.
