What’s so different about GaylerdGUITAR?

It’s what you get!  The most obvious difference with GaylerdGUITAR™ is what YOU get when you join! Instead of downloading a single song tutorial, GaylerdGUITAR™ offers ON-DEMAND access to an entire LIBRARY of video-based song tutorials. That way, you can learn as many songs as you like! And since all of the lessons are STREAMED online, you can access and learn from anywhere, any time you like!

It’s his Teaching Style! Another big difference is the teaching style! Gaylerd does more than just show you how to play chords. He’ll teach you step-by-step how to put his signature “WOW!Factor”™ into the songs. Plus, Gaylerd’s warm friendly approach makes you feel as if you are learning the songs right there in the studio.

It’s the Tutorials! One more HUGE ADVANTAGE for you is in the tutorial itself. Each video lesson includes some really cool and helpful learning features that many other teachers just don’t take time to edit in. Features like on screen Chord Diagrams, real-time riff tabs, and other helpful on-screen tips. Gaylerd’s tutorials will teach you how to do a whole lot more than just play a few riffs and strum a few chords on your acoustic guitar. They’ll teach how to put “WOW!Factor“™ into the songs!

It’s the Experience! The Bottom line is this. You’ll learn to play songs on acoustic guitar better, and enjoy the entire guitar learning experience more because GaylerdGUITAR is almost like having your own personal guitar coach on call 24/7.


Here’s What’s Happening on GaylerdGUITAR™ – October 2017


Can you believe that we are already into October! Seems like the older I get the faster time goes by!

Well, I’ve got several song tutorial requests from members in the pipeline, and I think you’ll have a lot of fun learning and playing them. I hope to have them in added to the library shortly. Two of the songs that I’m sure you will be familiar with are from Steely Dan: 

  1. “Reelin’ in the Years”, and
  2. “Do It Again”

Both songs are a lot of fun to play acoustically, especially when you add in the “WOW!Factor™”. Your audience sure won’t be expecting these songs!!!  And that’s what I like. Surprise the crowd with “WOW!Factor™”. We’re going to be playing both of these classic tunes in my band, “Acoustic Shade”, so I’ll try to get a video of us doing it live. I can’t wait to do this with Stephen (vocalist) Dave (drummer). These guys are so much fun to play with.

I’m also working on a praise and worship song from Crowder called All I Need is Jesus. Great song. If you play on your worship team at church, you’ll want to put this on your list!

You know, one of the cool things I get to do is create tutorials for a lot of the songs we play, and then put a live clip of us playing it on the site for you. That way, you get to hear what the song really sounds like during a LIVE performance.

That’s about it for now, so I guess I’ll see you… in the videos

(Remember: Stay or get close to The Lord!  You know, I have a note in my bible on a page in the Gospel of John 2:1-12, that says…. the best advise ever given. And that note is referring to a statement that Jesus’ mother Mary gave to the servants at the The Wedding of Cana. In this account, Jesus, his mother and his disciples are all invited to a wedding. But the wine runs out. And so Mary asks Jesus to please do something about the problem. Then she turns to the wedding servants and says… “Whatever He tells you to do… DO IT!” That was great advice back then, and it is still great advice for us today. )
