Guitar Tutor "Fretboard" Sliderule
Need help learning to play the Guitar?

Welcome to the Guitar Tutor Website, home of the neatest guitar sliderule ever.

Learning to play the guitar can be a challenging task. As a beginner, the neck of the guitar seems to be a maze of notes that are easy to get lost in. What is needed is a simple tool that will visually illustrate chords and scales on the guitar neck.

As a beginning guitar student I had many questions such as, “How are chords formed?” and “Are there other positions on the guitar neck that chords can be played?” To answer these questions and many others, I began to study basic music theory as it related to the guitar. As I learned more about music theory and how chords and scales related to the fret board, I compiled that information into a basic slide rule that I could use as a personal reference. The more I learned, the more I expanded the slide rule to become a reference for any need I had as a musician.

When I began to teach guitar lessons, I shared the slide rule with my students, who found it a valuable reference for understanding basic music theory.  The result of years of study, experience, and revisions is the Guitar Tutor.
