From Guitar World’s 50 Greatest Moments in Electric Guitar History
48. YouTube guitar instruction (2003) Back in 2003, Australian guitarist, song- writer and educator Justin Sandercoe had a swell idea: Why not offer a few guitar lessons online to promote his private one-on-one lessons. Due to his amiable presence and the clarity of his instruction, Sandercoe became an early YouTube superstar, and his idea caught fire, inspiring count- less guitar teachers to do the same. And it’s free.
The JustinGuitar brand is worldwide. We don’t always speak up but if it weren’t for the fantastic lessons, and the gentle, masterful nature in which they are taught, a lot of us wouldn’t be where we are today along our guitar journey. This is an amazing thing you all are doing and I proudly tell everyone this is the path I am learning on.
Justin’s friendly and simple approach has helped countless students and teachers alike. I’m always happy to spread the word. Glad he’s getting some well-earned attention from the likes of Guitar World. Thanks for sharing the article @jbm!
