Welcome to Fachords! Benvenuto!

Hi there! Gianca from Italy here. I'm a guitar teacher and a software engineer.

Here you can find beginner and intermediate guitar lessons, free guitar software and plenty of useful guitar resources.

I created this website to share the knowledge I've learnt in 15+ years of guitar playing and coding.

I put many efforts to create all the stuff and I'm sure you'll find something useful on these pages. By the way, my favourite guitar scale is the Neapolitan minor, of course!

Enjoy your stay here!

About this site...

Beginner/Intermediate Guitar Lessons

In the lessons page, you'll find some lessons for beginner and intermediate guitar players. Electric guitar parts, right posture, tuning, basic chords and simple chord progressions. Then you'll learn about scales (minor pentatonic and blues), picking speed, fingerpicking, and much more.

Online Guitar Software

For my guitar students, I developed some online software tools to learn and practice guitar. Students liked them very much so I thought to share and make them available for free to the guitar community. Now I'm very happy that a lot of subscribers use them on a daily basis.

In the Guitar Software section you'll find useful tools to memorize the fretboard, learn chords and scales patterns, practice interval and chords ear training, chords progressions and much more. If you have any idea about new software tools, just write me!

Learning Resources | Free Guitar Ebooks

In this section, you can find what I consider the best resources to learn playing guitar.

I also created some free guitar pdf ebooks to download. They'll teach you chords, scales and a bit of theory helpful to understand how intervals work on the freboard.

A nice story about chords, scales and feelings:

Once Andres Segovia was sitting in silent as he watched Django Reinhardt improvise on some famous standard jazz tunes; he was so impressed that he asked Django where he could get the sheet music for those awesome tunes he had just played. Django is said to have replied "Oh I have never played from a piece of sheet music in my life, I just improvise".

I don't know if this conversation really happened, but it is a nice story of two great musicians that will be remembered forever.
