If you’re someone that’s always wanted to learn to play the guitar or sing, but have absolutely no idea where to start, then Orange Learn online guitar lessons can help you. With Orange being very much an electric guitar-centric company, it is more geared towards the electric guitar and the techniques and methods used in rock music, so if you’re looking to learn something like jazz or country, then this might not be for you. This particular review will look more at the guitar course than the vocals. We were given full access to Orange Learn for the purposes of this review.

After spending a decade in music retail, I’m now a freelance writer for Guitar World, MusicRadar, Guitar Player and Reverb, specialising in electric and acoustic guitars, bass, and almost anything else you can make a tune with. When my head’s not buried in the best of modern and vintage gear, I run a small company helping musicians with songwriting, production and performance, and I play bass in an alt-rock band.
