In this post I compare and review the best guitar courses available online. Depending on your level and which area you want to improve the choice will be different. There are more than 25 guitar learning courses available online offering different content, targeting different audiences and priced differently. I have selected the top 3 courses which are of very high quality. If any of these appeals to you, go ahead any try. I would really like to see that you move to the next level in your guitar playing skills.
Do I need a Guitar course
In this mobile world, many of us do not have always have access to guitar teacher due to various reasons: studies, work time, assignment in different cities, distance….and we are not able fit in the class with our changing schedules. Even if we find a teacher sometimes his style is quite different to what we would like to play. With the web platform however these days it is possible to learn guitar at your own pace, in your own home having access to lessons from some of the best guitar teachers around the world. The fact that you found my website to learn hindi songs on guitar is a proof.
Personal coaching and private lessons tend to be expensive since the teacher can only accommodate limited number of students. The web technology makes it easier for professional guitarists with a passion for teaching to reach out every guitar learner. And the advantage to you is that you have access to lessons from the best teachers at an affordable price.

Below are the review of the top online guitar courses in 2010


It is a collection of downloadable ebooks, step by step video lessons and jam tracks. It includess detailed in-depth pictures and exercises. All ebooks, video, audio and software are clearly laid out and easy to use. In my view this course is more for beginner to intermediate level with fair amount of advanced exercises with video lessons.

Ben Edwards, the creator of Jamorama, is a professional musician and a trained teacher, he created Jamorama to put his experience teaching guitar, tricks and techniques into a package which could be easily used by guitar learners to quickly improve their skills. The package is well thought and structured so that you can easily navigate to the area which you want to improve. It covers all aspects of playing guitar from using a plectrum, finger-picking, bending, sliding, hammer-ons, pull-offs, scales, chords theory… with step by step video lessons. In this course you will not only learn most effective ways to practice, but also mistakes you should avoid.

In addition it includes bonus tools: GuitEarIt, Guitar Tuner Pro, Musical Pro game. It is backed by 60 day money back guarantee.

Learn and Master Guitar

Learn and Master Guitar by Steve Krenz is one of the most thorough package available. It consists of 20 DVDs, 5 Jam-Along CDs, a 100 page lesson book and free support forum. This course covers entire spectrum of guitar playing and in my view even advanced players will benefit by following this course.

Steve Krenz is not only an accomplished player but also talented teacher. His style of teaching is quite encouraging. The book and video lessons also go into building blocks of music theory while explaining practical techniques to use them effectively. This package is s physical product and is not available for instant download.

As with Jamoram, it comes with 60 day money back guarantee. In fact, I donĀ“t even try online guitar courses which do not come with such a guarantee.

Guitar Tricks

Guitar Tricks is more geared towards people who are looking to play songs on guitar. It is a great online course to learn from other guitarists (45 instructors), watch videos to help you learn songs and find all styles of guitar playing. They have a huge collections of video lessons for songs, and on top of that new lessons are added on a daily basis

Guitar Tricks has an active community forum that many of their members contributing. Most of the lessons are added by independent guitar teachers and each have their unique style.


If you are serious about learning guitar, it is important to be good on fundamentals and master techniques the right way. These days it is possible to learn it from the best teachers at your own pace, and at your home.

If you are an intermediate player, first checkout Jamorama. They also have some lessons for advanced player. If you find it does not help much, return it, and try Learn and Master Guitar. It is bit pricey but the course is the best available for advanced players.

If you are more interested in playing english songs and want to learn different styles – blues, country, jazz, metal, rock – go for GuitarTricks, they have a huge list. Try for a month and you wouldn’t be disappointed.

As I said before, these three are the best in class. If your guitar skills are not improving from any of these, they are more than happy to refund the full amount. But don’t try all of them at once. Select one based on your skills and preferences and stick to it for atleast a month, you will not be playing the way you play now!

Update: Jamorama has a currently limited time offer at the same price as last year with additional lessons. If you want to avail this price, you need to act fast.

    I bought Jamorama 6 months ago. I was a beginner at the time. I completed the basic course and I am definitely improving. It is wonderful.

    Why isn’t there a site like Guitar tricke for Bollywood songs? Someone should seriously think about it. Though there is site
    it lacks videos which are essential for beginners like me.
