Justin Sandercoe - Free online guitar lessons since 2003

I am sat here having a beer contemplating the last time I properly picked my guitar up. I am frustrated with myself for not making more of an effort. I blamed everything but myself! Now I am changing that. Firstly, it is my fault. I have concentrated on other aspects of learning software, not feeling like it and simply not finding the ‘moments’. It is time to go back to that love of playing again.

There is one music resource I always go back to. That is justinguitar.com. This is a site created by the talented Justin Sandercoe. It has been teaching since 2003 and is free. Justin discusses the subjects extremely effectively. Whether you are a beginner or professional there is something for everyone. It still impresses me that this man gives his time in such a way. In a world where free usually means anything but, here we see Justin bucking that trend.

Justin has performed and taught some top artists. His most notable connection is Katie Melua. His experience shines through with such a light that it becomes infectious as you search his lessons for the next musical treasure. You can go further than his free lessons by purchasing his books, apps and DVDs. You can donate directly through his site too.

As for me, Jim Fleeting from jimfleetingguitars.com in Yorkshire is replacing my pickups, and then I will continue where I left off nearly a year ago! I am not a singer and I would not say that I have great abilities on guitar but when I pick the it up again I get lost in the excitement. 'Music is food for the soul' - how true.
