jeffAudio - The Music of Jeff Hentschel - Online Beginner Guitar Lessons
Online Beginner Guitar Lessons 
As the first installment of my new review section, I'd like to point out a website I've been checking out recently. Over Christmas break, I had been wanting to learn some basic guitar technique so if I need to lay down an easy track I can do so without relying on others, and so I can actually do something when I go into Sam Ash or Guitar Center.

Of course, the easiest way to get good at something is to practice, but in order to practice, I had to have some kind of instruction. After some reasearch, I came across a great series of beginner guitar lessons that were easy to learn, well written, and did pretty much exactly what I wanted to do.

There are 11 lessons as of this writing (I'm not sure if they're planning to add to it) that start off with basic chords and scales in first position, and eventually work up to more difficult things. After each lesson, it gives links to songs that use relevant chords that were just taught in combination with past techniques. The only thing I would like added is if they included the actual song file as well and not just links to the iTunes Store, but I guess they couldn't do that for copyright reasons.

If you are interested in trying out guitar for the first time, I would definitely recommend this site if you don't want to spend anything and are able to keep good practice habits. It does give suggestions on how to spend practice time too, so the only thing you might have trouble on is posture. It would be best if you know someone who can play well to help you with that so you don't develop bad habits.

New Server! 
I've finally managed to snag my own domain name. I decided also to go with remote hosting from 1&1 as well. They have a good track record and will hopefully keep everything up and running more often. Check out the new site and of course, feel free to send feedback.

Site Beta Complete 
So I think I've gotten all the major sections of the website up and running, and there shouldn't be any bad links. If you have any suggestions, please contact me. I am open to whatever you have to say. If you find technical issues with the site as well, don't hesitate to let me know - I'm still working on minor details.
