Free Lessons

Here are some of the free video lessons which are hosted on the Coda Tuition, YouTube channel. These are detailed videos which cover famous songs, beginner lessons, useful techniques and theory, across both slide and fretted styles. They also cover both fingerstyle and flatpick playing.

We have scores available to accompany most of our free lessons and we're selling them at a very modest price, to help cover the time and cost of producing the videos. We hope that if you appreciate our Cigar Box Guitar lessons, then you'll consider buying a score or 2, to help keep YouTube channel growing.

The score for each new Cigar Box Guitar lesson will be available at a reduced rate for the first 7 days, and it's also possible to purchase several at a discount. Each score uses our unique Cigar Box Guitar Tab, so that the songs and exercises are clearly presented for all levels. See above each video for score links.

If there isn't a score available for a lesson that you like (for copyright reasons), please consider donating a small amount via our PayPal tip jar (in the main menu or above the video links). Thanks for your generousity and we hope that the lessons help in your Cigar Box journey!
