About this site

fachords guitar tools about Hi there! Gianca from Italy here. I'm a guitar teacher and a software engineer. I created this website to share the knowledge I've learnt in 15+ years of guitar playing and coding. Here you can find free online guitar learning software, beginner and intermediate guitar lessons, and plenty of useful guitar resources.

"Share your knowledge. It’s a way to achieve immortality!" Dalai Lama

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!

I just wanted to thank you for the service you are providing. It's incredibly evident how much the prospects of those who want to master guitar outweigh the prospects of your own personal gain. By giving me so much info, you inspire me, not only because of the progressions of the lessons you give, but also from the consistency of your emails, reminding me that someone other than myself wants me to succeed. So again, thank you, and your team for doing what you do.

Ciao Gianca, I just wanted to say a big grazie for all of the information and help you are sending through. I have been playing for 37 years and considered myself an extremely accomplished guitarist, all be it rhythm. I am singing and on rhythm The guy on lead is the former lead guitarist with Angel Witch. Regretfully we have now spilt and I need to take over the lead responsibilities. Your lessons are proving invaluable. I have also started teaching and the basic lessons are a great template for my first pupil. Who is doing so well.

I am a beginner/intermediate player and I especially enjoy and will benefit greatly from your very generous work. You have a lot of hours in putting this together and I truly appreciate having such an opportunity to benefit from your expertise and generousity. I wish I could tell all of your beginner guitar players that the extent of the information you have provided and the way it is presented, is worth gold.

I did get to look at some of the material. I'm impressed. If you don't mind, I'm going to share them with some of my friends. Some of the things I saw so far I knew but just haven't thought about for awhile. I can't wait to really get into all the material and use the tools. I would have say that anyone who plays guitar would benefit greatly from the things you provide. My practice time will increase as I know there are a lot of things I want to learn from you. Thank you again for letting me join in

This is a truly asum site if you are interested in guitar. The man who developed and maintains this site is from Italy. Guitar is not his vocation, it is his avocation of 15 years. What he provides on this site is extraordinary, and he does it just because he loves to share his insights and knowledge with others who want to learn or expand their guitar capability. There is no charge, it is literally FREE, and much much better than many of the paid sites you will encounter.

Gianca from Fachords Guitar Tools is one of those guys who knows how to do miracles with computer software stuff. He has some things to help us guitarist learn easier. One thing I like is the Fretboard Trainer. The Fretboard Cyber Trainer now has sound as you chose the notes and memorize where they are, you can hear them so you will help develope your ear training too. Hope you find this helpful.
