It's All About Guitar !!

Welcome to It's All About Guitar.

With so much information about guitar scattered around the web, in books, DVD's and videos, it can be very confusing and not just for beginners.

Hopefully, here at It's All About Guitar I can help ease the confusion by providing clear advice, guidance, hints and tips.

Have you been thinking about learning how to play? Perhaps you always wanted to but you just never got around to doing anything about it for any number of reasons. You didn't have the time, what with other commitments like school, being too busy with work, or even raising a family.

You just thought it was too much like hard work? And no matter how much you put into it you just wouldn't be able to play anyway. Big mistake! You can still learn how to play guitar despite all that, and hopefully we will be able to provide a little bit of inspiration and encouragement to get you on your way.

The aims of the site are numerous. Firstly, to provide encouragement for anyone who falls into one of the categories above and, as the site grows, providing valuable information on learning how to play, how to go about buying without wasting your money, caring for your instrument once you have made your purchase, tuning (including some alternative tunings), and provide you with a load of basic chords to get you started.

There will also be sections on the history of the instrument, some useful hints and tips on gigging, and using your skills to make money from playing. Want to know all about the different types of guitars out there? It will all be here.

Just follow the sections on the left to find a wealth of information on accessories, effects, players, news, and loads of other vital information and advice.

And all the rest! The other good bits of having an axe addiction.

And don't forget, if you have a WAP enabled mobile phone (one that can access the internet that is) you can use it to visit the site at any time by simply adding the website address as one of your favorites. Among other things, you should find this particularly useful for viewing those basic chords when you are away from the computer. Most mobile phones can also pick up RSS feeds.

If there is anything we don't have covered that you would like to see, just drop us a line using the Contact form.
