Guitar sites worth checking out:

This guitar related site is different to the other links we have posted here in the past. Live and Teach Guitar is a site for guitar tutors and provides registered members with lesson materials ready to print and give to their students. The site also includes step by step guides to help you run every aspect of teaching from setting up a website to promote your lessons to setting your rates and managing your timetable.

The reason we have decided to include a link to the site here is that many of you may or may not have considered teaching guitar. The truth is anybody can teach guitar and you don’t need to be an expert to get started. Apart from the obvious benefit of teaching guitar, earning money, you will find that by explaining and demonstrating techniques to students, you will become a better player.

So if you want to give teaching a go, a site like is a handy companion. One of the writers here is a registered member and recommends the site for anybody thinking about teaching.

Guitar blogs worth checking out: Truefire

When learning guitar, it’s always a good idea to learn from a range of different sources. Every teacher/writer will explain things in different ways which means if you don’t understand a certain concept, it’s likely a different teacher or writer will be able to explain it in a way that makes sense to you

Unfortunately, because there are so many poor quality sites on the Internet, it can be hard to know which sites are worth spending some time on to learn new things. So if we come across a high quality site we think you should know about, we will make sure to tell you about it! So the latest guitar blog we have come across worth your time is TrueFire’s Guitar Blog.

There are a lot of low quality guitar sites that provide lessons and resources that really aren’t worth your time. TrueFire isn’t one of those sites. While many guitar blogs spend most of the time talking about new guitars and random guitar news, TrueFire’s Guitar Blog focuses on learning material. If you want to learn blues specifically, then this site is definitely going to help you out.

TrueFire’s Guitar Blog is worth checking out if you’re learning guitar. Put it this way – are you going to improve as a guitarist by reading random guitar related news, or by adding new licks to your repertoire? Exactly. We’re impressed with the site and it definitely gets our tick of approval.

Guitar blogs worth checking out:

There are so many quality guitar blogs out there that people need to hear about. Even if one site has lessons and resources on every topic you need, you should always read through other blogs as every writer will explain things in different ways. You could say it’s like having 50 different tutors help you learn guitar.

Therefore I think it would be helpful for readers if I write up if I come across a blog worth checking out. The blog I would like to mention this week is

A wide variety of lessons and tips are constantly posted to the site so it’s a good one you can come back to again and again to learn something new. In the past Gary has interviewed me on practice habits (you can read this interview here) as well as other guitarists. Interviews like these are well worth the read as you will often gain valuable insights into how other players think.

Have a read through the posts and you will be sure to find quality insights to help your development.
