guitar games

The other day, I came back from a weekend away with Archie and the family.

Some of the fun and silly games we played while away inspired me to create a new episode of the Acoustic Asylum podcast.

It’s all about playing some fun guitar games.

Many people take guitar playing seriously. We are all guilty of this sometimes, but today, I want to share with you some ideas on how you can have more fun, be creative, and solidify your guitar skills.

These simple guitar games can even help you improve faster and give you some light relief as you’re learning to play guitar or develop your skills.

Plus, these tips can help slam the brakes on frustration with almost immediate effect.


In this episode, we talk about games to improve your chord changes, vibrato, chord repertoire, and memorising the notes on the fretboard.

These are all tried and tested fun guitar games I’ve used with students and I often enjoy doing these myself.

You can check it out below if you have an iPhone device.
