The Best Beginner Guitar Lessons And They’re Free!

Learn How to Play Guitar with the Best FREE Online Beginner Guitar Lessons! If you are looking for more of a “one-on-one” style video guitar lessons and more direct, learn this first then learn this, style approach to learning guitar then you will want to check out my best online guitar lessons.

Have you ever tried to learn guitar from Youtube videos? There are plenty out there, I know. But, honestly, what happens?

Eventually you get stuck – and then you have nowhere to go except to someone else’s videos. So you move to another Youtube teacher and they have another technique altogether.

You always end up frustrated, and you give up, time after time.

The reason for that is simple … It’s impossible to focus when you’re trying to follow multiple teachers because of course there’s no clear direction. No focus.

Imagine a game of “Follow the leader” with six people all being leader at the same time! The result is confusion … followed by no game at all.

Maybe you even paid a guitar teacher, but lessons are expensive, and frankly, most guitar teachers I’ve met start in the middle … meaning the students have a ton of unanswered questions. And because you don’t want to feel stupid asking them … you quit the lessons!

“The Guitar’s Gotta Fit Your Fingers …”

My name is Sam Lyons and my guitar has been a constant companion since I was in my late teens. (And I’m a grandfather now.)

I guess I was lucky because there’s music in my family, so I was told right from the start, “The first thing about your guitar is it’s gotta fit your fingers.” That sounds strange, I know, and I didn’t understand at first.

It’s not just about size or shape. It’s to do with the way it feels when you tuck it close to your body, about the way the strings respond to the way you touch them, even the way it smells.

You’ll know when you find the guitar that is  right for you … and I’ve never yet met another guitar teacher who’ll tell you how to pick the right guitar the way I show you.

Now, I’m sure you’ll agree, that’s not starting in the middle, is it? That’s starting at the start! From there, you’re not just playing tunes … you’re building a relationship with your instrument.

Which means the guitar starts to feel like it’s part of you. And as that transformation happens, you don’t just play tunes any more. You make music. It becomes an extension of you.

It doesn’t matter if you just want to play for friends and family, or in your church choir, or if you’re starting a band or on a journey to be a rock star someday … the love for your music and your unique way of playing will shine through right from the start with the way I’ll teach you.

What I’ll Give You

When you begin with my unique, proven, step-by-step Best Beginner Guitar Lessons method (lessons found on the right), think of it as the beginning of a gift that will last you a lifetime and provide years of enjoyment for you and your family.

There are videos so you can see and hear what to do, as well as have my personal explanation of each step. I’ll also include extra playing tips and tricks so watch out for those nice surprises too.

Here’s just a small fraction of what I’ll cover …

• How to choose the right guitar for you and your style of playing
• How to cut through the confusion about all the different guitar types
• How to easily remember the names of the strings
• Different types of chords – major and minor
• What 7th chords are – and when to use them
• Demystifying some of that boring music theory!
• Stuff you DON’T need to know to make good music on the guitar!
• How to use a pick the right way.
• And SO much more …

My goal is to get you from complete beginner guitarist to playing in mere weeks. That’s why these lessons are in a particular order – something you’ll never find on Youtube!

Who This Is For

If you have a desire to learn how to play guitar, my beginner guitar lesson program is for you. It doesn’t matter if you’re young, old, male or female.

And it absolutely doesn’t matter if you think you don’t have talent! The desire, (and a guitar), is all you need.

What If I’m Not Talented?

Nobody asks learner drivers if they think they’re talented enough to drive a car, or a novice swimmer if they have the talent to get in the water without drowning, do they?

Playing guitar is a skill … and if you have the desire to play then my guitar leaning method will bring the natural talent out of you!

Who This Is NOT For

I want to be quite clear: this is a method for beginners. If you can already play to a reasonable standard, then you don’t need my program.

Why Am I Giving You My Best Beginner Guitar Lessons For Free?

I’m giving you my unique guitar method free for a handful of reasons. I hope you’ll agree with me that they’re good ones …

• First and foremost, making music spreads joy, and if I can be a part of helping more people to do that, I feel I’m making a decent contribution to this troubled world. Teaching guitar is something I’m good at, so why waste my talent?
• Secondly, I know you can go to Youtube and find loads of free videos and I know SO many folks quit the guitar that way, as I’ve already explained. I believe we can never have too many guitarists on this planet, so I’m doing what I can to make that right!
• Finally … and I’m being honest here … maybe you’ll buy some things from my store someday – maybe some strings or other guitar accessory, or maybe even a guitar! I know the best ones to get and where to find the guitar and music bargains too, so you’ll get a double benefit by knowing me too!

Well, it’s up to you now.

I’ve been frank. just weeks from now or even sooner, you’ll be making music and you’ll be enjoying that relationship with your 6 string friend. All you have to do is start today with lesson one (which you will find on the right sidebar) and proceed with each lesson in the order shown.

You now have full access to my Best Beginner Guitar Lessons for free…Should you have any questions about the lessons along the way, I am always glad to help. Just drop me an email at and I will personally respond within 24 hours.

Let the journey begin!

Making Good Progress… Hello Sam – I’m a 68 year old man with lot of time on my hands, I work around the house doing minor repairs, spend some time in the garden, but I needed something else. That’s when I decided to start learning to play the guitar. In the past I have sort of played a little bit, if you could call it that. I decided to start learning from scratch and try and do it the right way. I visited several sites, that’s when I came upon your site and I have been following your lessons ever since. I’m doing this for me, and my grandchildren to show them that you can learn at any age. I admit at times I have a hard time, but I put in my 15 minute every day. I have made some good progress, thanks to you. Thanks Sam!Keep up the good work. Luis

I like your style of teaching… Thank you Sam. I am just starting to play the guitar. I like your style of teaching.”. Thanks! Regina

Just having fun learning now… I tried to play guitar over twenty years ago, got frustrated and gave it up. Now I am 41 years old and starting over. I have tried a couple of other websites and learned a little. Then I found the lessons by Sam Lyons and I am very happy to see that I can follow an entire course all the way through, at my own pace to get to where I want to be as a guitar player. I have only been using these lessons for a short time and I am pleased with the results so far. The lessons are simple to understand even as a beginner and I am just having fun learning now.” Thanks Sam! Brian Tipton

Easy To Learn… Your teaching is so easy to learn. I will continue to practice my guitar lessons … James C.

Never Too Late To Get Started… Your guitar lessons have taken me from knowing nothing about a guitar to being able to play chords, read and play tab and even play a few songs. I am 58 years old so its never too late to get started. I would tell everyone to give guitar a try and find out how much fun it can be. Thanks for everything. Sincerely, Richard

Your Best Guitar Lessons had helped me get through those tough to handle theories as well as simplifying complex chords in easy to learn pictures as well as explanations.
