Learn from the BEST

Online video-based guitar lessons are fast becoming one of the most effective ways for teaching and learning guitar. And with Gaylerd’s “Starting from Scratch” online beginner series, students have the freedom to learn skills at their own pace from one of the very BEST guitar players/teachers on the net today! Gaylerd captivates each student’s attention with his charismatic teaching style along with the helpful, on-screen graphics he adds to make the lessons fun! You’ll learn to play guitar like a pro with his clear, precise, no fluff instructional videos. And because the lessons are streamed on-demand, you can stop, pause, repeat and review any part of a lesson as often as you wish until you master the skill. Spend as much or as little time on each guitar concept as you need. You control the learning process!

Lesson Format

These subscription-based video lessons are streamed on-demand so NO DOWNLOADING is required. That means you can learn from anywhere, at anytime, wearing anything you want to!

Best Age to Learn to Play

There is NO UNIVERSAL “best age” to start learning how to play guitar. Young teens (12-15) seem to learn the fastest! They just get it! But there are lots of retired folks over 60 years young who are having fun learning to play using online lessons too. So I would say that as long as you have a desire to learn, are willing to spend time practicing, and are between the ages of 8 to 80… YOU’VE got what it takes to learn to play guitar! So what are you waiting for?

3 Learning Modules

My “Starting from Scratch” beginner series is built upon a concept of 3 learning modules. If you’re a brand new beginner who has never even held a guitar before, you should start with the first module, Guitar 101, and work through the series progressively. If you already know how to play guitar, you can begin with Guitar 201 or 301, depending on your experience.

  • Guitar 101: Foundation (FUN-damentals)
    • If you are new to guitar, this is the best place for you to start. FUN-damentals starts on square 1 to help you build a strong, rockstar solid guitar foundation.
  • Guitar 201: Framework (Frets, Strings, Hands and Fingers)
    • Once you have a good foundation or if you already know how to play a few chords, Guitar 201 will help you develop the FRETBOARD skills you’ll need to add “WOW!Factor”™ to the songs you play.
  • Guitar 301: Finish-out (Chords, Songs and more)
    • This is what guitar playing is all about! Chords and songs and all the fun stuff that will help you become the guitar player other guys “wanna be”!


Here’s what comes in the “STARTING from SCRATCH” series

“Below is a summary of the lessons included in this course.  But first, here’s a little legal mumbo-jumbo. I may update or modify the lessons in the “Starting from Scratch” series without notice.
