Guitar Lessons

When I first built WholeNote.com, I created over 100 online guitar lessons with guitar tab and music playback (MIDI). My output in this area has fallen off since then, though it’s something to which I hope to return.

In any event, here’s a small subset of some of the on-line guitar lessons I’ve published. They cover the gamut — from how to tune your guitar to playing like Eric Johnson.
