G’day future musos of the world. Welcome to my site. This was inspired by your response to my instructional videos on You Tube.
I made these originally for my nephew who lives some 12000 miles away and asked me to show him how to play.
I make my living playing these same songs in pubs and at parties all over the world. There’s no reason why almost anyone shouldn’t be able to play these simple songs, so I thought I’d shere them with you.
First off, you have half the battle won, you’re already familiar with the songs, so the lyrics and the melodies should be familiar.
This site is for beginners, so if you’re looking for slick “Slash style” riffs, sorry.
There are 15 songs uploaded in my usual ‘song video’ first, the ‘chord video’. Eventually, there will be several hundred as I get time to make them. Im trying to stick with the most rudementary (simple) songs at first so nobody gets disgurraged.
If anyone has any requests, please let me know and I’ll put thoses ahead of the list. rayred7@hotmail.com
Keep rockin’ lads!!

Hi, well, we’ve been Free for 4 years now, but due to administrative costs, that has changed.
Hundreds of thousands of you have benefitted from this site, including many professional guitar instructors who have modified their teaching methods to mimic mine. Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery.

Most of the lessons are rudementary (simple) songs at first so nobody gets disgurraged, But there are some advanced songs as well ie: “Blackbird”, “Here Comes The Sun”, “Over The Hills And Far Away”, “Wish You Were Here”, etc.

THIS IS A RESPONSE TO AN EMAIL I RECIEVED:

Guitars:Some of the earlier lessons are done on a cheap ($300) CORT Guitar. this is the one I carry to the beach etc. I use this for most lessons because most new players would be using the same quality guitar, and to show that you dont have to spend $1000+ to geta good sound.
Occasionally you’ll see me using a RAINSONG carbor fibre guitar. Its so good, just got it 2008 in New York.very. Light, and the action is perfect.
this is the Black / grey one

The black one from (I think Wish You Were Here) is a MATON 808, made in Australia. Very powerfull soundand outstanding specs.

I also use a MARTIN D18, which has the same atributes of the others.

You have probaly notice my new custom painted (Aus Flag) Breedlove AJ250 Plus, as well as my custom Painted Martin (USA Colors).

The Ray Red “Touching Indians” CD

as my new CD)

Singing lessons:
I prefer to consider my singing as ‘capable’. Basically, you have to find the songs that work for you etc, or change the key of the songs to accommodate your voice.

I dont try to polish the voice in the lessons as this is a guitar lessons, not a singing lesson. Also I feel that if i made slick over produced voice etc, this may alienate some potential players. Did you ever go into a music shop as a beginner, looking at an instrument and have some hotshot salesman start ripping some killer riffs when all you know is maybe a few basic chords? I’m not trying to show you that I can play, Im trying to show you that YOU can play.

Live Clips: when i play live, (see the live clips) I always tune down by 1/2 step. (Eb instead of E, Db instead of D and so on) This is a common practice even among professionals. say i have a hard time hitting a note, 1/2 step down makes it easier, and no one notices this subtle adjustment.

Recently (Jan 2011) I’ve started rehearsing in E and I’m finding out that I’m hitting the notes just fine…

So Thanks for keeping this site going. I’m in the process of re doing the older lessons, you know, the ones with the bedroom furniture in the background… lol I’ve also been adding a bit of Strum lessons, but I don’t like to harp on “strum patterns” so much. For beginners, I suggest just playing the chords in time (Rhythm) and deveoping you’re own style.
