Guitar Music Lessons

Basic (Grades Debut - 2)

This page will help my students to practise music which uses basic chords and scales. 

It is important to listen and/or watch how the examples should be played, so don't be put off if you find it difficult to play along to begin with.

If you have any questions make sure to ask me during class.
