Welcome!

Many blind individuals across the world want to learn how to play guitar. This instrument allows a person to play many genres of music, ranging from classical to modern-day heavy metal. Unfortunately, many resources are catered to a visual audience. As a result, blind individuals seeking to learn the instrument may face problems when attempting to use these resources. In particular, fingerings of commonly-used chords are often presented visually. Obviously, for a person who lacks vision, these pictures will be of little benefit. Therefore, this site serves as an introduction to guitar written by a person who is blind, and who can relate to others who cannot perceive images.
