Welcome to Guitar By The Glass
I believe learning guitar is most fun and effective in a relaxed group environment. I try to produce this with this podcast the best way I can.

What happens here?
Every week, I upload a new Youtube video, and it usually focuses on a specific song that I jam with my class.
Every other week I release a Podcast (you can listen to the latest episode below) that you can listen to while you’re sitting around / driving, or you can watch the Youtube video that goes along with it. I also Upload my Chord Charts for the song, which are beautifully written, easy to read, and print perfectly.
Click here to get my 50 page free chord books (there are 3!), with songs from artists like Oasis, Eric Clapton, Johnny Cash, Otis Redding. Any song that is just awesome to sing by yourself, or in a group. Also includes some easy to read theory, and charts. It prints beautifully!

I’ve released GBTG Book 3. Free!
I’ve recently gotten married so I haven’t had time to do a whole lot. This will change now though! I’m off to Kyoto for a couple of weeks to work on a project, then back here for more Guitar By The Glass stuff.
My latest podcast was on Little Man, by Tom Waits. It was episode 25 I think, and it’s the first one I’ve done as a request in exchange for a bottle of wine from Germany. That just has a nice feeling about it.
I think people are noticing how effective the ‘whole song approach’ is to learning the guitar. I’m putting together a Uke By The Glass songbook over the next couple of weeks that will also be free, I just need to know what songs you kids are playing these days to include them. You can email me suggestions if you like.

I’ve been holidaying a lot so things have been pretty quiet. At the moment I’m saving up for a new video camera that will make it a lot easier to record and upload content. My current process is quite labourous – I record sound and video separate, then I have to sync it up, and it records in a strange format. Not for long!
I’m looking through my comments and doing some requests – I’m working on 2 How To projects right now. “Did She Scare All Of Your Friends Away” by Gareth Liddiard (quite a huge undertaking) and “Lighthouse Man” by The Waifs – not quite as large a project, as I already know how to play that. Part 1 has already been posted.
I love coments and requests, so if you have any, please don’t hesistate.

I’ve done a bunch of work to my website. I have so many plans, so many ideas for content. There are not enough hours.
My latest goal is to release a Youtube video every week, whether it’s a part of a podcast, or a How-To, or a Strumming video.
New content posted weekly – check it out!
