Guitar – Lesson 3 – Playing a Song


Best way to learn guitar is to learn by practice. Realizing this, we are skipping our theoretical lessons for this time and going to teach you how to play a song. The song played in this lesson is Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day. It has really simple chords and is easy to play for beginners.

The chord playing technique, strumming patterns and best practices discussed in this lesson will be useful for any song you’ll try. So grab your guitar and  get ready to dive into the real action with Samyam in this video.

The chords used in this song are:


Em G D




Guitar – Lesson 2.5 – Tuning the Guitar

Tuning the strings of your guitar to the correct notes is very important. Not only for good sound, you should always practice on a well-tuned guitar so that your ears (read: brains) are always trained to hear the right sound.

In this video lesson, our guitarist Sabin shows you how to tune a guitar into the standard tuning in two ways:

1. using a tuner (absolute tuning)

2. without using a tuner (relative tuning)


Here is relative tuning chart for reference (click for larger image):
