Hey everyone, the new lesson for the week is a Stone Temple Pilots song from back in the ‘90s, Plush. This was a really popular alternative rock song back in the day, but listening to in now, it is still a really awesome grunge song you’ll love if you’re into the electric guitar.

This week's much requested tutorial is on, in my opinion, one of the greatest solos of all time, Parisienne Walkways by the great Gary Moore. Gary Moore is a lesser known guitar god, somehow he never really "made it" as big as he could have, but believe me, he was a great guitarist. He passed away in 2011, but one of his greatest legacies, Parisienne Walkways, is here for you to learn.

Learning to play guitar, or any instrument for that matter, is amongst the greatest things you can do in life. Numerous studies have revealed that musicians are usually more sociable, get better results in school, and tend to be more open to the world. The guitar is a very popular musical instrument, hence many people choose to learn to play the guitar, instead of the violin for instance.

Learning to be a guitarist without the assistance of a live teacher is quite possible nowadays. Back when I learned, we had just books and tapes to learn through. The world wide web has honestly revolutionized music education and learning, which makes it simple to learn the guitar.

In the age of the net, the only thing you can't find information on is the one you don't do a search for. You'll come across an abundance of content for learning the guitar, everything from understanding how to read tablature, play chords, and even beginner guitar songs. The issue is actually with the abundance of info, because beginner guitarists generally don't stick with a given site and lesson program, but rather, skip between guitar lesson sites, and that is certainly not a really good approach to take.

This week’s new guitar lesson is on a song that is truly historic, and has been requested by loads of my students, Brown Eyed Girl.

The Van Morrison classic is often referred to as “THE” original pop song, with good reason. It’s pleasant, happy nature will fly you back to the ‘60s, to the field where Van Morrison wrote the song.

As a guitar instructor, a lot of people are extremely surprised after they discover how I learned to play the guitar. I am a living example and proof of the fact that it is possible to learn to play the guitar, without needing a private guitar teacher. If I could do it, anybody can, all it takes is dedication and work, and you'll be playing easy guitar songs in no time at all.

I have been playing the guitar for roughly 15 years now, and true, I did possess a musical background already, because I already played the piano as well as the trumpet. Even so, the guitar is completely unique, so even though I already knew how to read music, I had to train myself the guitar essentially from scratch. Plus it was not as easy back than, as it is today.

The Internet offers an overwhelming quantity of info on any topic, as well as guitar lessons. Lots of newbie guitar players type the phrase guitar instruction into Bing or Yahoo, and don't know how to proceed with the 10 million results the search engines provide them with. This is really a negative part of learning guitar on the internet, since beginners will usually go from one web page to the next, without actually learning anything.

Rumble is a real oldie-but-goodie! It was actually one of the first songs to experiment with distortion, which would sort of make it a history shaping song I guess...

Our guitar lesson on Rumble will teach you how to play this awesome song, just like Link plays it with His Wray Men. It is very easy, thereby perfectly suitable for beginners.

What can make a great movie even better? A great soundtrack of course!

Iris was written by the Goo Goo Dolls specifically to be part of the soundtrack for the movie City of Angels, and well, needless to say it turned out pretty well... 3 Grammy nominations, longest running #1 chart position (18 weeks). That's what Iris achieved.

Are you into the electric guitar?

If yes, than you'll love this week's lesson. If not, than sorry, but this song isn't for you 🙁

We'll be learning to play Hysteria by the English alternative rock Muse, and it's a rocker, I guarantee it. This song has got it all, and will probably pose a bit of a challenge for most of you, but don't fret (get the intentional misspelling? 😉 ), you'll be advancing your lead guitar skills big-time.

Learning to play Nirvana songs is pretty much compulsory for anyone fiddling around with the guitar. They are fun to play, easy, very popular even today, and always have such a cool vibe to them. I think that's one of the main reasons Curt Cobain's band made it big time, it's because of the general vibe their songs sent out, not really the complicated lyrics or the super difficult guitar solos.

In fact, Nirvana songs are considered very easy to play, which goes the same for About a Girl, the subject of this week's new lesson.

This week's lesson is all about speed and lead guitar. You'll be learning how to play Beautiful Disaster by 311, which is a song you may not necessarily be familiar with, but trust me, you'll love it once you hear it, and you'll enjoy playing it even more.

The song itself is fairly straight forward, perhaps the only difficult thing about it is really, the speed. They play it pretty fast, and that should be your mid-term aim as well. Start out slow of course, but don't be shy to speed up gradually.
