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