About Guitarist & Author, Craig Smith

When I wrote my first guitar book, I took some proven ideas and methods I had used with my own guitar students and organized them into a book. Since the 1990s I was writing method books, yet, I never really knew what to do with them. I feel that nowadays, I’m finally getting it right.

Computers and the internet have greatly changed everything for aspiring authors, guitarists, and musicians across the world. I hope that I’m still learning and improving, both as a guitarist and a writer.

My first 4 books and website have changed my life. I feel luckier than ever to be able to play guitar live, and write for a living. I never take it for granted. That is why I must thank you, first and foremost.

Without you the guitarist, reader, student, music fan, with your own quest for knowledge, this would not be possible.

Thank YOU!
