How to Play Guitar is a free video lesson by Peter Vogl that will provide a brief overview of the absolute essentials you need to know to start playing guitar. For each topic, we have a more in-depth free lesson on the subject where you can work on proper technique. This lesson will give you a starting point during your first week of playing guitar.
