Many of us wish to play our favourite songs, but where can you find reliable chords and tabs for guitar online? With a little searching you can almost find everything you need and we are here to help. The following short list show some places you can look for the piece of music you want to try to master. Remember that the chords and tabs are not always the original, so you may have to improve on them yourself.

If you are a student of Shine School of Guitar, you can always work on a piece with your teacher. They have years of experience both writing original music and, you can be sure, hunting for tabs to practise for themselves!

The Shine School of Music online lessons continue to be successful. Both students and teachers have been working well together. This year we showcased one of our online guiatr students at the annual school concert in Barcelona via Skype on the large screens at the venue. It was fantastic to see his big smile when he saw the entire crowd applauding his performance.

We now have students all over, from Boston in the USA to Moscow in Russia, and offer online classes in guitar and saxophone. We are hoping to add piano classes too. It’s a fantastic way for many of our international students to continue lessons with their teachers. Often students who come for intensive courses are able to further their education this way, when they return home.

The online medium also enables students to study from the comfort of their own homes. If you are interested in our online classes, click here to learn more.
