This web site contains acoustic guitar lessons and electric Guitar lessons ON VIDEO, especially designed for beginners.

You can have immediate access to see or download excellent quality videos with hand close view to help you learn fast and easy.


The main difference with my method is that I provide SIMPLE AND CLEAR instructions

Guitar Courses are mostly complicated because teachers try to apply the same system they learned, desgined to create professional musicians. I developed my own system totally different from what I learned in College, based on my many years of experience with beginners.  So... you're safe with me !

I know there are hundreds of guitar lessons online for free, but they are not organized and some even recorded by amateurs.

Invest a very tiny amount in my BASIC guitar lessons and THEN... browse all you want, for free guitar lessons, after you understand the basics of acoustic guitar and electric guitar.

I decided to maintain a low cost to help more people from more countries even if their budget is very limited.

My name is Alvaro Avila. I've played guitar since I was 9 when my father taught me a few chords. When I was 18, despite my mother's  desires for me to become a Doctor or Lawyer, I joined the National University of Costa Rica to study music. I´ve been teaching for more than 25 years now, because I was teaching even BEFORE I joined the Costarican University.Private Lessons is my job. I visit my student's homes to teach them how to play guitar.

People  call me every week telling me that they are friends or family of one of my students and that they want lessons too, but I can not help more than 1 person at a time because I don't believe in group lessons.

There are music academies and private teachers in my town, but the phone keeps ringing and I am unable to help, because the afternoon has a  limited number of hours. I always have at least 5 people waiting for a spot but visiting homes includes time waisted in traffic.

What this mean to you ?...It means I must've  being doing something right all these years. What is , in my mind, the difference between me, and other teachers or academies ?

I believe it could be:  

-My patience
-My respect for all people
-My SIMPLE explanations
-My sense of responsability to
my students... you decide.

Thank you very much for visiting.

People ask me all the time, when they are about to start, what kind of guitar they should buy? You have a few choices, but let's divide it into 2 basic categories: Electric Guitar or Acoustic Guitar.

In the "electric" category we can find different choices to consider. The first one is the style of music you want to play on your guitar.

Electric guitar is best for pop, rock, blues, alternative,country, metal but you should also consider that the learning materials that you are going to find, related to electric guitars is more oriented to scales, exercises, tricks and guitar solos. In other words, electric guitar learning material is going to take more effort on your side.

There are also, different types of electric guitars. Basic, with tremolo, even 7 string guitars, smaller size for young children, etc. In my newsletter I will be writing an entire article on electric guitars. Register your e-mail for updates.

In acoustic guitar, we have 2 basic choices:
The "classical guitar" which comes with nylon strings and is your best choice if you like to sing  and just play chords or seriously study classical  music.  The styles that better match the classical guitar are: pop, soft rock, ballads, rhythm guitar styles, bossa nova and classical of course.

The second basic choice is "folk guitar" or "Steel-string Guitar" which is acoustic but comes with steel strings. The sound is much brighter and louder than the classical guitar (nylon strings). The down side is that steel strings get corroded pretty fast if your fingers tend to sweat. As a result, you will need to change strings more often (every 2 months or so, if you are not a performing artist) but the benefit  of a nice bright sound is worth it.Pop, rock, blues, alternative and country are the best match for the steel-string guitar.

You can also find electro-acoustic guitars. They are the same as acoustic guitars with the extra feature of an output connection to plug into an amplifier (amp)  so you can have a louder sound to perfom in public. They come with nylon strings or steel strings. Modern electro-acoustic guitars even include a tuner built in the body of the guitar. This is a great feature to consider.
