This guitar lesson course is designed to take you from having never played a guitar to playing full songs. If you know a few chords but struggle putting everything together, feel free to jump right in.

The lessons are laid out in a logical sequential order, but you don’t have to do them in order if you don’t want to. If you are a beginner, my advice it to go in sequence. Take the time to learn and master the content in one lesson before moving on to the next.

  1. I really hope that I can learn how to play guitar because it was one of dream/skills that I wanted to complete!!

  2. Thank God for you! May God bless you with wisdom and guidance as you make this course available for people to learn to worship God using music. For me, what I want to achieve from this course is to be able to play worship songs!:)

  3. Brian, thank you for the classes. God Bless you for taking the time and making these videos so that people like me can learn to play and worship God. Keep up the good work.

  4. I’ve been learning guitar with your YouTube channel for about two months. I’m excited that many of my favorite worship songs are taught in a simple and understandable way on the site, but I’ve never really sat and learned the basics so that I can smoothly play through a song. I’m looking forward to resetting what I think I know and being able to learn in sequence because I am definitely stuck!! Praise God for this site! You are doing a great work and I will continue to pray that God uses you and the church is grown by your ministry!

  5. Hi Brian, so excited to have subscribed to this course. I live in Paris, France, and have began to play the guitare less than 2 years ago, and was very helped by your lessons on youtube. Hope to make some progress !

  6. Hi Brian! Thank you for this tutorial. I am excitdnto learn how to play guitar. It was my dream to learn to play guitar and able to play when we have bible studies and someday become on of the worship team with God’s will. ?

  7. I thank the Lord that he gave you the mind to share what you have learned with others. Learning to play the guitar is something I have wanted to do for sometime now and I am so happy I found your site. I was very excited when I saw you had a focus on worship music because that is exactly what and why I was wanting to learn… to worship the Lord. God Bless!

  8. If a person practices daily how long before we can play a song? Whats the preferred time put in daily to get somewhere quickly

    • Hi Rose – I would suggest 30 minutes a day of practice. You should be able to play songs within a month or so if you practice every day. Sometimes it will take a bit longer, but the key is just to stay consistent :).

  9. Wow how am I just seeing this now … Hi Brian it’s me (its4thaluv) on periscope 🙂 anyways I know how to play but I basically taught myself so it would be nice to go through this and polish up on knowledge technique and structure maybe clear up any misconceptions or errors I may have .. Looking forward to this and can’t believe I got here so late lol better late than never right!

  10. i really appreciate the free full guitar course tutorial, it’s gonna be a wonderful journey for me through this tutorial to become an amazing guitarist

  11. Thank you a lot, Brian, for this Course which you are giving freely. You have given us a precious gift which we can give unto God in worship. You are giving us a great foundation in playing the guitar and learning music. May God richly bless you. I look forward to complete the course within the shortest possible time. Thank you

  12. Brian,
    My church family has been in need of a guitarist for some time now, we have been looking but to no avail. I have always wanted to learn but have let the devil speak into my life way too long over this! I went out and bought an acoustic guitar yesterday in FAITH! Thank you for such an awesome gift of free lessons! My goal is to learn and have an opportunity to give a testimony and all the Glory to God for the accomplishment!

  13. Hi Brian. I am from the Philippines. I just signed-up. I am a beginner and very excited. So nice to learn my first musical instrument and play my first music to worship God. May the Lord always blessed you and your family for putting-up a site like this for free. Thank you so much!

  14. Thanks Brian! This is just what I have been looking for. The way you explain the information is excellent and easy to understand. This is a blessing!

  15. Hi Brian

    For the last one and a half month or so I had decided to start learing how to play the guitar and was following various materia,l from books to youtube tutorials but I did not have a decent structure and a goal so I was kind of stuck.
    Like asking the question what’s next.

    As you say practice is the key and I observe this already.I measure my progress scale by actually recording my self on a PC. I can hear the mess in the beginning and now more ear pleasent flowing rhythm.

    A few days ago I came across one of your video tutorials. It was the acoustic version of “Where would I be”. I honest with you this song I never hear before i don’t go to church for a long time and abandoned Him for a long time but after hearing this song I felt a push to explore further.

    You and the song you were playing. showed me the way to two different objectives in my life.

    I followed your link and subscribed and found your beautifully structured guitar learning course with a specific aim to learn playing the guitar irrelevant if your into worship music or not. And tones of material.

    They say the lord has a plan for us and never abandon us even if we abandon him. And yes I abandoned him, but due to this recent interest that struck me to learn guitar and watching your video clip going into your web site. I feel the urge to get closer to our Lord Jesus Christ through this.

    Thank you for your help.

  16. Thank you Brian Sir.I am looking forward to learn the Guitar.The work u are doing is awesome.Wanna thank the Lord for u

  17. I’ve been interested in learning how to play the guitar for several years now. I’m excited that a friend showed me Worship Tutorials and I can’t wait to start learning!

  18. These videos are really very helpful, it stands out from rest of the other videos I have tried watching to learn guitar as beginner

  19. Hey Brian,

    Praise the Lord for the lessons…my first time I ever learn to play guitar and I found this very useful and easy to learn and follow.

    Very much appreciated…

  20. I finally step out on faith and got my guitar and I am so happy to walk into the next chapter of my life. I became even more happy when I came across your YouTube video and saw that you where a worship leader. So I will be staying on track and hopefully I can go to the next level and see where all this takes me.

  21. Thank you again!!! Is wonderful material. Students from Oneida Baptist Instute will love to know how to play Guitar with you, together 🙂

  22. Brian, I have really enjoyed your worship song tutorials on YouTube. I have been playing the guitar now for about 8 months and I really want to use this course to help me get to a point where I can learn and play worship songs. Thanks so much for putting this course together.

    God Bless


  23. So I just borrowed a guitar from a friend a while ago and I honestly searched everywhere for an easily accessible course I could use to learn guitar. Thank you so much, and to everyone taking part in this organization. This is exactly what I was looking for!

  24. I purchased A Breedlove Acoustic guitar so that I could learn to play Worship music and someday help with worship at my church. Thank you SO much for putting this together for me and for the ONE.
    God Bless,

  25. You are doing a great job , may God bless you and encourage to do more for his glory.The lessons suits best for my needs .Thanks A LOT!!

  26. Brian,
    Thank you for this lesson series. I have a very basic knowledge of guitar. I feel God has been leading me to better the gifts he has given me in music to use for his glory. I was lead to your video and signed up immediately. Looking forward to the lessons. God bless and thank you again.

  27. I look forward to going through the modules, I have had an interest in playing the guitar since I was in mid school. I get so far and see that I am not progressing and I lose interest. I am now 50 and I really want to learn to play with worship songs, it would be a great way to spend times together with my children and grandchildren!

  28. Amazing way to impact lives with your God-given talent. Thanks very much, you and the Living Hope Church are a blessing. I’m being most interested in my guitar learning.

  29. Hey Bryan… I registered for this course but I have been playing for about as long as you. I helped my adult daughter purchase her first guitar today, a Breedlove Discovery series and I wanted to introduce her to a good foundational course. I guess I was a little skeptical that it was entirely free so in order to see the rest of the lessons I decided to register. I have a feeling she is going to be excited when she sees all of your courses are free and doesn’t have to pay for the Fender guitar course she was looking at. I have been learning worship songs because of your YouTube channel and your ministry is truly a blessing! God Bless you guys for doing this… I have done a few videos on my YouTube channel by myself but realized it really is an investment in time… so I don’t know how you are a worship leader and have the time to do all these high quality videos bro!

    I hope my daughter takes advantage of your course… please pray for her.

  30. Hi Brian,

    This is my 1st time to go to your page and I’m so excited to learn to play a guitar. By the way I’m Alex from the Philippines, I’m actually searching a guitar tutorial plan in YouTube and so amazed that I found your Worship Tutorials channel cause I really wanted to play praise and worship songs during our (my wife and I) quite time and even during Bible Study in our growth (cell) group. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you as well because I found your channel that focus not only playing guitar but about praise and worship songs which I really loved. I’m looking forward to learn lots of things from you. Thank you as well for sharing your spiritual gifts to people who wanted to play a guitar. More success to you and your team.

  34. Brian, I sent a message on the contact link but thought I would also send one here. First I use our youtube videos to learn new songs and they are very helpful. Recently I became a volunteer in the county jail and played music on a weekends retreat. I have been asked to teach prisoners guitar, we have 5 guitars donated to the jail. I have access to a TV and computer but there is no internet service. I would love to share your teaching videos but I would need them on a thumb drive in order to get it into the facility. is there anyway you can help with this.

  35. I love you bro. I have always desired to learn guitar after playing keyboard for a long time. May God bless you for the time and passion you have to teach us on true worship. I love worship. Bey mentor till I graduate… Show me more of guitar playing.

  36. Hey Brian, thanks for having me around. I am very much delighted to have you as my mentor. I ardently believe I am going to achieve my objectives which is to know and play the guitar. Thanks!!!

  37. Brian, I’ve been listening to your Musics Praise channel for A few years on YouTube, but I never knew who you were. You were anonymous. Then I started playing guitar and stumbled across your videos. I was like “hey, i know that voice. It’s him!” Lol. I’m actually a really big fan of yours. I really like your Hillsong covers. Plus you have put me onto a bunch of other artists that I’m a fan of now.
    Anyways, glad I found your lessons. I’m looking forward to learning guitar from you. God bless you man!

  38. Thanks. This is the only course I’ve seen no thirst for profit ,instead teaching others what you know using your talent from God . I’m truly blessed.

  39. My dad is a highlife musician. Though he retired now but he never allow me to learn guitar but l used my instincts to copy his chords. I could not advance. Each time l play on my own, l keep missing it. Please l want to Lear everything about music.
