Hi Guys, I'm thinking of signing up to e-chords.com for a monthly subscription. They seem to have hundreds of video lessons teaching songs which as I begginer I would much rather. Anyone know if they are ok/ good?

Thanks alot

Sorry, never heard of them. You might try the lessons on this site before you spend your money. I've used David Hodge's lessons on here and it has helped my playing immensely.

Music is the universal language.

Hi chymera,

There's lot's of places on the net for strumming lessons, including Guitar Noise (check out the beginning lessons, for David Hodges lessons first).

Also try these sites, been posted here before by many others:

The lessons on guitarnoise.com are mighty good, and free. I tried some online subscription lessons, I think the name was workshoplive.com or something like that and found them to be very good also, they might have some sample lessons available.

I have used E-Chords for taking out tabs and keyboard chords. They are great in that department.

It won't hurt for a monthly subscription. I will say go for it.

it sounds great but don't you think you should learn C-chords, B-chords, F-chords also? There's only so much you can play using E, Em, E7, Esus4, etc...

Oh good one

I can recomend E-chords. As a subscriber you will get a lot more from the site than just the ordinary visitor.
Not only do you get the video's but on the tabs side of things you get the option to instantly transpose to a different key even to the point of just a half step down or up and includes all the info such as alternatife positions for chords, using boxes to explain fingerings
I've been a subscriber for about a year now and quite regularly use the options on offer

Be excellent to each other & party on dudes!

Don't do it. You will be disappointed and you will not WILL NOT receieve a refund and you account will be canceled. Even if you don't like it you won't get what you paid for.

Can you expand on this please? Mainly, what about it was disappointing?

Also, did Echords cancel your account or did you? How long was your subscription?

I still go to e-chords on the odd occasion, but you must remember that when i first signed up to there extra features it was pre-youtube. Now you can get tutorial video's for most songs by numerous tutors and would be tutors. Some good, some not so good.
The price I was paying for being a premium member was a negligible amount, something like £19.00,for the year just a little over 5p a day and at the time was well worth it
The video tutorials at e-chords are made by professional guitarists and in some cases are better than those on youtube.
You can get key transposing on ultimate-guitar.com free, a very nice feature. but you can make a nifty transposing wheel from here http://www.houlston.freeserve.co.uk/transposer.htm for when your not online.
I would still recommend the site as the video quality is good and after just having a look I see the price has actually gone down a bit. It is now $24.45 = £15.32. for the year. A little under 4.5p a day
Basically, like with everything on the internet you have a choice. Its entirely up to the user whether or not he/she feels its worth the money.

I've just had a look at E-Chords and it looks quite good. Don't forget this guy http://www.justinguitar.com/
He is an excellent teacher and I think you would benefit from his lessons.
