You Can Learn Guitar!



Welcome to Spytunes!

Serving the internet with online guitar lessons since 2007, Spytunes is a learn guitar experience dedicated to teaching you how to play the guitar, understand music, and learn songs at the same time.

When you deeply study the greatest songs composed over the last century, you’ll soon discover how the building blocks of music can be understood using chord progressions, arpeggios, and scales.

Since this is most evident in the songs that made it, the ones we all know, the hits, the tunes – We focus on them!

Learning with Spytunes, you’ll not only learn guitar but gain yourself a repertoire of well-known songs as well.

Learning songs along with music theory will enable you to improvise, arrange and write guitar parts for the acoustic and electric guitar.

Knowing famous songs is also your ticket to playing with a band. Having a repertoire is a must in order for you to progress from being a bedroom player to becoming a professional guitarist.

Beginner Acoustic Songs

Beginner acoustic guitar songs

This collection of songs will teach you how to arrange a song to play on your own, as well as how to create a supporting part.

Playing songs will help you with switching between open position chords and give you the context you need in order to understand how music works theoretically.

Intermediate Acoustic Songs

Intermediate Acoustic Guitar Songs

The intermediate songs can not be played using just basic open position chords. We have to move up the fretboard and play CAGED barre chords as well.

We incorporate bass lines, pentatonic licks, extended chords, and play vocal melodies. Most importantly, we invent a 2nd guitar and play these songs together.

Advanced Acoustic Songs

These songs use big chord extensions and sometimes, unique and complex chords that incorporate open strings.

Study these in-depth and you will gain a complete understanding of the fretboard, including how to build any scale, arpeggio, and chord, anywhere on the guitar.

Intermediate Electric Songs

Learn all these Motown/Soul songs and you will have gained yourself a repertoire so you can jam or even join a working band.

Study these songs in-depth and you will map out the fretboard, master the CAGED system and learn how to design a rhythm guitar part that works in a band.

Guitar Chords

The best way to understand the guitar fretboard is to use the so-called CAGED system.

Launched in 2000 by a man called Paul Foad, this concept has taken the guitar world by storm. Once understood you can build any chord, arpeggio, or mode.

Tools

Several essential tools are available to help you on your guitar learning journey. Most importantly, Chordacus/SWS, will help you visualize the fretboard.

There’s also a chromatic guitar tuner that can change Hz available as well as a very feature-rich tap tempo metronome.
