Hi everyone! I’m a hard-working musician with a background in live performance, songwriting, composition, and home recording. I want to help you perform the music you love, whether you’re playing to your family, your webcam, or a 15,000 seat arena. I have been teaching private music lessons since 2007.
As a beginner, we started with a few basic cords so I could start playing real songs within my first week. He is attentive and flexible to what you are looking to learn, and I very much appreciate his patience and accommodating nature.
Electric guitars, introduced in the 1930s, use an amplifier and a loudspeaker that both makes the sound of the instrument loud enough for the performers and audience to hear, and, given that it produces an electric signal when played, that can electronically manipulate and shape the tone using an equalizer (e.g., bass and treble tone controls) and a huge variety of electronic effects units, the most commonly used ones being distortion (or “overdrive”) and reverb. Early amplified guitars employed a hollow body, but a solid wood body was eventually found more suitable during the 1960s and 1970s, as it was less prone to unwanted acoustic feedback “howls”. As with acoustic guitars, there are a number of types of electric guitars, including hollowbody guitars, archtop guitars (used in jazz guitar, blues and rockabilly) and solid-body guitars, which are widely used in rock music.
We teach piano, guitar, voice, bass, trumpet, clarinet, saxophone, flute, composition, music theory and chamber music. All our instructors are professional musicians and/or have music degrees and love to share their knowledge in a constructive way. Each student is treated individually and each lesson is customized to their needs.
The sound of acoustic guitar strings vary extensively, depending upon the materials used and the manufacturing techniques involved. Softer metals such as gold produce the warmest and most mellow sound with less volume, while harder metals such as stainless steel produce the brightest sound with more volume. Wound strings with significant amounts of a soft pliant material involved in the core, such as silk, will have a warmer sound with less volume, while a guitar string with a solid metal core will produce a brighter and louder sound.
Most electric guitar bodies are made of wood and include a plastic pick guard. Boards wide enough to use as a solid body are very expensive due to the worldwide depletion of hardwood stock since the 1970s, so the wood is rarely one solid piece. Most bodies are made from two pieces of wood with some of them including a seam running down the center line of the body. The most common woods used for electric guitar body construction include maple, basswood, ash, poplar, alder, and mahogany. Many bodies consist of good-sounding, but inexpensive woods, like ash, with a “top”, or thin layer of another, more attractive wood (such as maple with a natural “flame” pattern) glued to the top of the basic wood. Guitars constructed like this are often called “flame tops”. The body is usually carved or routed to accept the other elements, such as the bridge, pickup, neck, and other electronic components. Most electrics have a polyurethane or nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Other alternative materials to wood are used in guitar body construction. Some of these include carbon composites, plastic material, such as polycarbonate, and aluminum alloys.
You’ll learn how to play power chords, how to use power chords, how to play bar chords, major bar chord shapes, minor bar chord shapes, common chord progressions, how to play open chords, essential strumming patterns, how to develop timing and feel, and dynamic strumming tips.
The pickguard, also known as the scratchplate, is usually a piece of laminated plastic or other material that protects the finish of the top of the guitar from damage due to the use of a plectrum (“pick”) or fingernails. Electric guitars sometimes mount pickups and electronics on the pickguard. It is a common feature on steel-string acoustic guitars. Some performance styles that use the guitar as a percussion instrument (tapping the top or sides between notes, etc.), such as flamenco, require that a scratchplate or pickguard be fitted to nylon-string instruments.
The original purpose of the resonator was to produce a very loud sound; this purpose has been largely superseded by electrical amplification, but the resonator guitar is still played because of its distinctive tone. Resonator guitars may have either one or three resonator cones. The method of transmitting sound resonance to the cone is either a “biscuit” bridge, made of a small piece of hardwood at the vertex of the cone (Nationals), or a “spider” bridge, made of metal and mounted around the rim of the (inverted) cone (Dobros). Three-cone resonators always use a specialized metal bridge. The type of resonator guitar with a neck with a square cross-section—called “square neck” or “Hawaiian”—is usually played face up, on the lap of the seated player, and often with a metal or glass slide. The round neck resonator guitars are normally played in the same fashion as other guitars, although slides are also often used, especially in blues.
There are different ways people have tried and failed to learn guitar. In-person instructors and YouTube seem like great options at first, but they usually lead to slow progress and staggered results.
In major-thirds tuning, the interval between open strings is always a major third. Consequently, four frets suffice to play the chromatic scale. Chord inversion is especially simple in major-thirds tuning. Chords are inverted simply by raising one or two notes by three strings. The raised notes are played with the same finger as the original notes. In contrast, in standard tuning, the shape of inversions depends on the involvement of the irregular major-third.
These beginner guitar lessons cover everything you need to know in order to get started playing the guitar. You’ll learn the basics like how to hold the guitar, how to tune a guitar, and what all the parts of the guitar are called. Then you’ll move on to learning essential guitar chords, strumming techniques, and how to put everything together to play your first song. These beginner guitar lessons are essential for anyone that has always wanted to play the guitar, but never knew where to start.
It’s impossible to achieve your guitar goals with wannabe celebrity instructors, or searching through hundreds of broken lesson videos. At Guitar Tricks®, we’ll give you all the guitar knowledge you need to succeed with our award-winning, step-by-step curriculum.
Michael is a great instructor especially for young guitar players who are just learning to play. Michael was able to get Ethan excited about learning about music and practicing the guitar. Great followup, feedback, and professional beyond his years. Highly recommend!
Patrick is a great teacher, and very patient. I’ve never learned how to sing or read music before, and he teaches at a pace that’s good for me. I highly recommend him whether you’re an adult or you’re considering enrolling your child.
Bolt-on necks, though they are historically associated with cheaper instruments, do offer greater flexibility in the guitar’s set-up, and allow easier access for neck joint maintenance and repairs. Another type of neck, only available for solid body electric guitars, is the neck-through-body construction. These are designed so that everything from the machine heads down to the bridge are located on the same piece of wood. The sides (also known as wings) of the guitar are then glued to this central piece. Some luthiers prefer this method of construction as they claim it allows better sustain of each note. Some instruments may not have a neck joint at all, having the neck and sides built as one piece and the body built around it.
This unique Guitar Center program matches you with other musicians of similar skills and musical interests, regardless of your playing experience. An experienced band coach will help you learn how to play together, write songs, produce music and be a real band.

My teaching style is intuitive and fun. I am light on theory with student and mostly focus on techniques. I have multiple guitars, including several electric, acoustic, and a bass. I also have a drum kit and mic setup and my lessons cater to your needs and at your pace.
I’m real fussy about stuff I endorse, I will NEVER ever say to y’all that I play something if I’m not using it and honestly dig it. I do not get paid to use anything, but I do get discounted or free stuff sometimes. I don’t have any exclusive deals and often use things not listed below, I’m a bit of gear slut and not particularly faithful 😉 Check them out, all seriously great tools for making happy sounds in your ears!

The chord book will load an E major chord to start you off. Everytime you click on the Root or Type it will load a new selection of guitar chords (inversion or voicings) that fit the selected Root+Type combination. The Roots show the available root keys from C upwards and the types show a variety of the most common chord types.
<--- no lesson on this Esus2 because it doesn't sound as cool, it's not as easy to use at the others. I've just included it here for the sake of completion! It kinda looks like a B Power Chord but with the E bass note. You will find our Instrumental music to be of the highest quality on YouTube. We have a source of Classical Instrumental Music that is above all else. We also create our own ambient instrumental music for our listening pleasure. You will find that all music called “instrumental” has a very broad meaning. Of course, you would expect it to mean that it's a song which features only the music from a song without any singing or synth sounds. And this is true all music that features an instrument is an instrumental music, including classical, guitar, orchestral, flute and much more. #InstrumentalMusic I have been playing guitar for over 20 years and have been teaching nearly as long. I have a passion for music and for sharing it with others. I grew up playing rock and funk and studied jazz and classical guitar in college.
