Learn to Play Guitar with TakeLessons

The guitar is one of the most common instruments for beginners to pick up – and it’s no wonder! It’s easy to learn simple, crowd-pleasing songs by plucking away at the open strings on the guitar, and from there, you can move on to chords, strumming patterns, and more. Go from a beginner to advanced player with private guitar lessons or take group guitar classes online.

Whether you want to rock out with a band, play acoustic at a coffeehouse, or simply just spend the afternoon noodling away on your own, mastering the guitar is a great goal. Check out our library of guitar articles to find the tips and resources you need, no matter what level you’re at!
