What Makes My Lessons Different

Every guitarist should have a repertoire of popular songs they can play start to finish, even if everyone else is just shyly mumbling the chorus.

The songs below will help you build this repertoire: They can all be played SOLO. 

Instrumental sections are arranged so that you can play something pretty without losing the groove.

Learn the songs below, and share them with the world!

I’ve purchased lessons before, but you stand out from the rest. Please keep doing what you do.Ray Huk

LET IT BE

FOLSOM PRISON BLUES

Johnny Cash

LEVEL: BEGINNER/INTERMEDIATE
Just three open chords, a simple strum pattern, and a couple easy but instantly recognizable riffs.  Whether you play it soft and mournful, or loud and rowdy, it's a great singalong tune.
Includes: Video lesson, chord chart, and tabs for the riffs.

TAKE ME HOME, COUNTRY ROADS

John Denver

LEVEL: BEGINNER
Best singalong song ever!  Choose a dead-simple strum pattern or a slightly more challenging one.  If you want to get fancy, I teach you how to end the song with a bluegrass-tinged Lester Flatt Run.
Includes: Three videos (Explanation video, slow strum-along video, and performance video), chord chart, and tabs for the Lester Flatt Run.

WAGON WHEEL

Bob Dylan and Ketch Secor

LEVEL: BEGINNER AND INTERMEDIATE
This is a favorite in the Hampton household.  Even my little boys sing along with the simple, memborable chorus.  With just four chords and two options for strumming the song--one simple, one more complex--this should appeal to beginners and intermediate guitarists.  If you want a bigger challenge, I've composed a low-intermediate-level instrumental break using alternating bass technique.
Includes: Video lesson, chord chart, and tabs for the instrumental.

I'M YOURS

Jason Mraz

LEVEL: INTERMEDIATE
A sweet love song with a tricky strumming pattern.  Serenade (and impress) your sweetheart!  I've arranged the instrumental section for solo acoustic guitar.
Includes: Instructional and practice videos, chord chart, and tablature for the instrumental.

WISH YOU WERE HERE

Pink Floyd

LEVEL: BEGINNER & INTERMEDIATE
A mega-classic and rite of passage for any rock-loving guitarist.  I teach the riff note-for-note, but also provide options for beginners.
Includes: Instructional and practice videos, chord chart, and tablature for the riff.

What They Say

I REALLY love how you explained the strumming pattern. I can even do difficult fingerstyle, but strumming has always been a nightmare for me, because nobody can explain how to play it.

Finally someone who teaches how to coordinate solo guitar playing and singing. Outstanding video...I hope you do more.

You stand out from the rest. The devil is in the details and you are detail-oriented.  I appreciate the other teachers but you are the new benchmark for teaching.
