A modern approach to guitar Lessons
Customised Lesson Plan
Whilst online guitar lessons can be a great way to get started with guitar, students can often miss important steps when trying to learn alone. With guitar lessons at Truetone guitar, regular one-to-one tuition sessions at our Glasgow-based studio help to pinpoint and focus on those areas to maximise your development based on your own skills, experience and musical goals.
Fun, friendly and informal
Music should be fun! Our guitar lessons are designed for you to ensure you get the most out of every session, and can be adapted to suit your personal learning style. Crank up your amp with your favourite distortion pedal and get ready to master the techniques and concepts which are relevant to the music you like, and at a rate which suits you!
Learning on the go
Using the latest web-based learning platform, lesson content is instantly available on a wide range of internet connected devices, such as mobile phones, laptops and tablets, so you need never worry about forgetting those important techniques shown to you by your tutor. What’s more, you can book, manage and pay for your lessons online for the ultimate convenience!
All ages, all levels
Whether you are looking for beginner guitar lessons, or tips on how to become the next Steve Vai, players of all ages and levels are welcome. Parents can join in too and can participate in the tutor-led sessions, use the online lessons, or both! Age is no barrier to playing guitar, so tell your granny to buy that Gibson SG she always wanted, and head on over to Truetone Guitar!
About Truetone Guitar

Learning with a tutor is the best way to ensure you are developing the correct techniques and avoiding bad playing habits, but many students are unsure how to practice lesson material between tuition sessions.

A combination of text-based, video and mp3 lessons ensures that you always have access to the most important topics and concepts, and can revisit those areas you are most interested in at the click of a button.

Whether you want to book one lesson, or four lessons a month, you can set up a schedule which best suits your needs. Paying for your lessons is easy too. With secure payments by Paypal, you can pay as you book, with added piece of mind that your payments are being handled by a dedicated payment provider.

Guitar Practice Tools
Trying to nail that tricky guitar solo and wish you had 15 fingers? Slow things down with our free online music speed changer and audio pitch shifter tool. Simply load your music file (mp3, wav or ogg), slow down the audio to an easier tempo and get to work! You can also break down your music file into audio sections and work on a section at a time for guitar solo perfection. Is your track in a different tuning to your guitar? No need to retune - you can easily adjust the pitch on your audio track and leave your tuning pegs where they are!

Time for a bit of country twang! To get the tone, use a single coil guitar like a Strat or Tele, and set up a slapback echo effect for that authentic country sound. Look out for the use of the major pentatonic scale, and techniques like slides, chicken pickin’ and double stops.
