Kim's Easy Guitar Tutorial is back online after more than a decade long hiatus! It's free and as the name says - easy! I've been using this method with my students for years. In fact this was one of the first guitar tutorials ever published on the internet way back in 1997 and it's even better now.
This tutorial uses a “teach yourself" method which assumes you’re a complete beginner with no prior experience playing the guitar. It’s written in simple language with easy instructions to guide you carefully through a series of structured lessons in a logical sequence using a tried and tested lesson plan - with the emphasis on PLAYING the guitar.
Each lesson builds on the previous one, so for best results, start at the beginning and work your way slowly through each page. It doesn't matter if it takes a week to master each example - enjoy the ride! Any terms you don't understand just look up the glossary at the end for an explanation. Forgotten some of the chords? No problem - check out the chords page for a refresher.
For turbocharged results and a more enjoyable learning experience try "Kim's Easy Guitar Tutorial (with Audio)". It's exactly the same as this tutorial plus audio samples embedded right next to each exercise so you can listen and play along making you better, faster! More info here.
