Chichester Guitar Lessons

Hi, I'm Jack and I am a guitar teacher, currently with online slots for new students. Get in touch t Why take lessons from me? I am fully DBS checked.

I offer a free non-commitment 20 min trail lesson as a first lesson, to meet and discuss what you want to work on and do a bit of guitar playing! For Guitar Grades (optional for the students) I have a 100% pass rate. I have written a beginner guitar course that helps introduce new students to core concepts of guitar playing featuring, names of the notes and strings, simple songs/riffs, chords, sca

Operating as usual


I've been revisiting some of favourite albums to get myself some inspiration for my guitar practise! Today I've been listening to The Police's first album 'Outlandos d'Amour.'

Andy Summers is a wonderful guitaris, who blends creative lead lines, bordering on Jazz, with Punk-Rock rhythm guitar. Check out the tracks 'So Lonely' for an awesome solo and 'Hole in My Life' for some tight rhythm chops!


Now accepting card payments to make it easier for students who are face-to-face! (With a 50p charge..)


Sneaking in some essay work for my MA between students!

Pat Martino Trio with John Scofield - Sunny 03/11/2021

Gutted to hear about Pat Martino passing away, a great guitarist whose barraging guitar guitar style was inspiraring and somehow always remained tasteful. Here he is play 'Sunny' with another one of my favourite guitarists, John Scofield.

Having some fun with a blues backing track!


Excited to play my first public gig in a while! I’ve done a bunch of Private events, but I’m looking forward to playing with Playback at The Bell Inn!

All set up and ready for tonight at we hope to see you there for some spooky fun!


String change day! Over the various lockdowns I've been keeping strings on a little bit longer, I've always preferred brand new strings so I'm excited for this new set. I'm also trying out Half-Rounds for the first time, I will try to get a video up next week showing you all what they sound like!

The Police - Message in a Bottle 2008 Live Video HD 25/02/2021

The Police are one of my favourite bands, they're all amazing musicians and great songwriters.

This song in particular is a fun one of guitar, it helps you develop your left hand fretting accuracy, gets you used to an odd stretch and helps you with your timing!

I'm just gutted I'll probably never the opportunity to see them play live! Luckily we have YouTube that goes to some way to rectifying this.

Here is a quick loop on the Baritone Guitar! I'm still getting my head around the the different tuning, the longer neck and the heavier strings! Getting more comfortable on it, but it is taking time!

For those of you who don't know a Baritone guitar is like a normal guitar but tuned lower, usually a 4th but I tune it a 5th down.


I've taken advantage of some gaps in my timetable to do a little bit of practise!

I'm always telling my students to record and video themselves when practising so they can get visual feedback on their playing and can objectively assess what they're doing, both positive and what needs a bit of work!

From this short clip, I've already noted down some points for improvement, and some points I'm happy with!

Remember to get in touch if you want to arrange a free trail!


Here is a shot (from many years ago) of me playing Classical Guitar. Though I'm mainly a Electric guitarist these days, I'll never forget my classic roots that helped me develop a strong musical knowledge, as well as learn some beautiful music. Maybe I'll have to pick up my old Classical from my parents house, when I can, and upload a video or two!


Here is a photo of me playing a about 18 months ago with The Sandwich, I've been really missing live music lately (as everyone has) and I can't wait to get back out there!


I'm currently working on a system where each student will have their own unique login to my website, where they will be able to access notes from the lessons and music we have been working on!

Fingers crossed it'll be ready for 2021!


Writing out a transcription for one of my students. This one is always a fun song to play on guitar and I'm surprised I haven't written it out sooner! I have loads of songs in my library and I'm always updating it! I'm always happy for some suggestions!

Terrible news about EVH, I loved Van Halen's first album. When I first heard it, it made me want to play Rock music! A real innovator and virtuoso of the instrument!
