As we all know, YouTube has a wealth of lessons and “how to play” tutorials for guitar. If you want insights into playing a particular song, riff, technique, or for exploring a new genre, it’s the perfect place to search.
A quick disclaimer: I don’t normally recommend YouTube for longterm guitar lessons. Why? Well, it’s too fragmented and non-sequential to develop guitar skills over the long haul. It’s better to sign up for a structured set of video lessons. (You can check out something like JamPlay or ArtistWorks.)
