Hey guys, (and girls)

A year ago I took lessons to learn to play the guitar but for now I’m doing it all by myself. I’ve already figured out that this is far from ideal but for budget reasons I won’t be taking any lessons in the near future.

So my question is : how do you guys use the internet for lessons, downloads, helpful software, … ?

I’m interested in learning about scales, chord progressions, songwriting, tricks and licks, that kind of stuff. Good online videolessons are always nice too.

So please post your links, names of software or anything else that might be helpful!

Thanks already and have a fun weekend!

The answer is Wikipedia.


It's always wikipedia.

Why, just on this very website you can find much lessons to do with music (importantly for you guitar) theory. The ultimate guide to guitar by ZeGuitarist could be a good start

since someone has to post a proper reply, it might as well be me
right
UG - use this to get tabs
power tab and guitar pro - if theres not a text tab, power tab is the free yet slightly crapper version although you can get a crack for guitar pro quite easily
youtube - this is your friend, use it to look for song lessons, cover versions to watch others play and their technique and so you can upload yourself and get feedback and shizz
google - if you cant find it anywhere else
FOR YOUR SAFETY, THIS LINE HAS BEEN MADE UNREADABLE, BY ORDER OF THE UG GOVERMENT

You might want to remove the bottom line there pal, telling somewhere where to find pornographic material is against the rules, even if you don't post a link.

Might want to edit that quote buddy, just in case.

"I’m interested in learning about..."

scales, chord progressions:
http://www.all-guitar-chords.com/
---> It's not a real lesson website, more like a register for everything concerning music theory on guitar. Still very helpful.

songwriting:
---> The only advice I can give you (since I write songs myself) is to not give up. Your first songS (plural!) INEVITABLY WILL sound like horse-shit, but you NEED that horse-shit to fertilize your plant which is called "artistic expression". Write a song every 2 weeks and you will get better.

tricks and licks, that kind of stuff:
http://www.youtube.com/user/rockongoodpeople
---> A lot of that kind of stuff


Hope this was helpful. Cheers!

Porn taught me how to have sex. Literally. And yes, those skills ARE put in to practice regularly. The porn on the other hand is now a distant remnant of my past.

The other hand? You mean you use your left now?


On topic...


I had guitar lessons for £15 a week for almost a year when I started, then I stopped learning anything in them, so I became self-taught. Been playing for 2 and a half years now, it's going pretty good

Thx.

Thanks all for your input!

I have to agree that it's not a good idea to suggest porn on this forum. But personally I wouldn't mind at all.

Maybe we should start a porn-thread?

All-guitar-chords.com - shows chords scales metronomes it has a transposer too.
Ultimate-guitar.com - for tabs
8notes.com or free-scores.com for sheet music.
Google if you need to find lessons and stuff
Justinguitar.com this guy has loads of great stuff.

I rarely do. I just look at tabs and try to after knowing the chords learning the songs I wanna know by myself (If I even need to check up the chords)
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

I don't learn much about guitar any more, but I use it for further reading on maths and science very often. Usually read the wikipedia page to see if I'll find it interesting, then go to a website with an in depth article for it.
