Bergeron has heard that YouTube videos about playing guitar work really well for many people. Not to mention most all of the videos on YouTube are free…so there’s that. A good YouTube search tip is to sort by the number of reviews. YouTube doesn’t do this be default.
Search for the term “how to play guitar” and then click the filter option in the top left hand side of the screen. To to the sort by column and click “rating”. This will sort all the videos with that term by how many reviews they have received and their review ranking. If you don’t do this you will have to sort though a crap load of videos that suck.

Oh man…here you go. The electric guitar can rock it out with the best of them. For years it’s been the cornerstone of just about every rock band, from The Beatles to Metallica to and back again.
