My Guitar Strings

Welcome traveller! You have arrived at the perfect place to be on your musical journey. Guitar Strings exists to serve you and me on our never-ending quest on the many paths of music. The idea is simple, take a basic yet fundamental element of guitar and get people together to pool their knowledge and experience. Hopefully, this platform will help you get the answers to your questions and offer you encouragement as you become the guitarist you want to be.


I’ve always loved music ever since I was young. Influenced by my grandfather, and uncles and cousins who all love music, I started learning to play at a young age. I never actually finished classical training (probably due to lousy time management skills) but continued to pick up skills and songs from anywhere I could.

I have put in many hours of practice and researched various genres and skills to find mine, but I’ve come to appreciate many of them and the people who enjoy playing them. To pick up my guitar and just let my fingers free is calming and exciting at the same time. It seems magical that they don’t even need you to tell them what to do right?

That’s why through this site I will become the best guitarist I can through our ( yours and mine) shared knowledge and experience.



A wise man once said, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. What better way to motivate, encourage and educate yourself than to try to do the same for someone else? Sometimes its easier to do things alone, however, I strongly believe this is not one of those times.

Music as a whole can seem pretty overwhelming for someone just starting out, especially in an age when there are millions of videos and sites providing information. This is especially true for someone trying to learn all of it solo. That is why I focused on making this as comprehensive yet user-friendly as possible.

This site will help us learn and grow together.



At the time that this site was created, I was tired of being mediocre. The solution presented itself in the form of this site. In order to prepare the fertile soil to plant my musical dreams and goals, Guitar Strings was born. I remembered a simple yet often overlooked principle from my school days.

In order for someone to teach you something, they really have to know their stuff right? Well, the internet is the biggest classroom in the whole world, connecting billions of students together. However, this may also be a downside when you ask a simple question, as you may get hundreds if not thousands of different answers.

My hope was to pick (pardon the pun) a fundamental element of one of my passions, and to build a world around it, but keeping it as simple as possible too. Every person who visits my site is an individual, and the insights they gain and share here will definitely be worth the effort.

Let’s become experts together, I look forward to it.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, please feel free to leave them below or alternatively direct them to  support@myguitarstrings.com  and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,
