Hey guys,

I bought a Fender Squire Fat Strat a few months ago and been getting around to play it quite a lot. I can't really afford lessons with a teacher so I was considering buying a subscription from one of those sites like jamplay.com Can you guys recommend a good site such as the one I mentioned and let me know any experiences you've might've had with such method of learning.


Thanks in advance for your feedback

You know, i've never heard of doing this, but what you could do is post in the musician ads section and see if maybe someone would like to help you out. You could offer to pay if you wanted, but otherwise use it just for questions and such, and help. I haven't had any good experience with online sites. Jamplay is pretty much a tab site, which hmmm let's see, UG works well. Then it has video lessons, and a bunch are on youtube, so i would either just work through it by yourself, as i did, or just try using youtube and UG

We are far from a tab site. We have 350 hours of video lessons with 35 different teachers. Yeah we do have tabs on our site...but those are just secondary to the video lessons (to help you learn).

Personally, I'd tell you to stay away from YouTube if you're an absolute beginner. Those guys can teach you some pretty damaging stuff if you don't know what you're doing. Start here at UG. Read up on techniques and how to do them. THEN, go on YouTube to see how they're done well. I'm sure there are some people here who would be glad to point you in the right direction for some videos on YouTube.

The whole thing is, I wouldn't suggest going on YouTube because some of the people on there really don't know what they're doing.

This guy, however, does know what he's doing. http://www.youtube.com/user/FreepowerUG

I would advise reading through some of the lessons on UG, thats what i did to start of with and then i eventually invested in a tuition DVD which was pretty good...just look around and see what you can find...also check out lick library, i heard that they have some decent tutorials on there

I also just got back into guitar, and I have been looking for a good online lesson site. However, in the meantime I have just been teaching myself out of books and from the lessons here on UG. Some books I have used:

The Heavy Guitar Bible by Richard Daniels
Music Theory for Guitarists by Tom Kolb
