I want to let all of the beginning, intermediate, and advanced guitarists out there know about a sweet resource called Guitar Master Class.  After rocking my weapon of choice (Gibson Explorer) with the videos and music offered on GMC for a few hours, I already felt considerable improvements in my playing and I have been playing guitar for 15 years.  Whether you are a beginner that wants to learn a few chords for the first time, an intermediate player stuck in a pentatonic rut that wants to expand soloing skills, or an advanced axe-master that wants to refresh and perfect your craft, this site can help.

Here is what it all boils down to: GuitarMasterClass.net is a video lesson archive & community. GMC has tons of helpful videos, instructors and lessons. GMC also features a forum for chatting with teachers and students 24/7, recording collaborations, and attending video chats.  There is also content for bass, drums, singing, piano etc.

All genres and styles are covered.  There is rock, metal, shred, blues, jazz, country, acoustic, and funk to name a few.  The format is inviting and set up in a way that makes learning the guitar fun.  The instructors on the video are not your typical guitar snobs; instead they have several characteristics that truly enhance learning — they’re highly skillful, modest, and funny.

-14,410 videos, 2,399 lessons, and 41 instructors.
