Guitar Lessons

I've been reviewing the multitude of instruction material to learn to play guitar available on the web, mainly for my own benefit to help broaden my own horizons and improve my technique. Along the way I've come across a lot of good instructional video material particularly on youtube, where there is a wealth of free instructional videos on playing specific songs, which I've been using quite a lot. Therefore I've decided to share what I think are some of the better guitar playing channels available on the internet. These are mainly free resources although some offer the option to make a small donation (entirely discretionary). Therefore in the coming weeks I'll post a series of articles highlighting my preferences and hopefully develop a useable reference library of guitar lessons instructional videos.

For those wishing to lift their guitar playing skills to a higher level I've already posted some links to the more formal guitar playing site, these are structured programmes for all guitar styles and although they do charge, I think they deliver good value and are the next best alternative to personal guitar tuition. Watch this space and meantime enjoy the view!!

I saw this guy performing live in Donegal last year, even bought a CD from him. A good guitatist and an even better singer, a true talent, I wish him well and know he'll go on to bigger things.

Michael Jackson - Irish Dancing

This has absolutely nothing to do with guitar amps or guitar music. In fact there is no association with the guitar what so ever, albeit there might be a few guitars in the backing tracks. However this is total indulgence, because the person doing Irish dancing in this video is my niece's daughter i.e. my great niece. She is eight years old and is fantastically talented. Apart from her great dancing ability she is also a great vocalist, I should encourage her to play guitar, and maybe have a valid link on my blog, but this is so good I just had to share it, enjoy
