Welcome to the Guitar Dreams lessons. These free guitar lessons online are geared towards lead guitar technique. The various categories are shown above. Feel free to start anywhere you like, but I highly recommend starting with picking technique and legato, and then moving onto scales. I think you will find once you nail down your picking and legato technique, that you be able to play with freedom and confidence, because those technical barriers will be removed. And with these barriers gone, you will be able to focus on creating musical ideas. That really is the ultimate goal here - to break down all technical barriers and to reach new musical heights. It will not be a quick process though. I will be honest about that. But if you are here at Guitar Dreams, then I suspect that you are committed to becoming the best player you can be. So pick a category above and get started!

All exercises contain a MIDI file, and most have audio also. The audio files let you get a feel for what the exercises are supposed to sound like at various speeds, but I find that the MIDI files are better for learning purposes. With MIDI files, you can adjust the tempo to match you current level, and you can loop them too. So take advantage of those MIDI files!
