About Chordistry

Chordistry was built for a community of guitarists who want to learn their favorite songs, who want to learn more about the guitar and its place in contemporary music, and for those who want to dig deeper into how music works, especially the art of songwriting.

About Shawn

I teach students all over the world how to play the guitar through the internet. Its a ton of fun!

I started teaching songs on YouTube in June of 2013 and as of January, 2015 have created over 425 videos and 35,000 people have subscribed to my YouTube channel. Seeing this many people, from all walks of life, enjoying my lessons encouraged me to launch this site in December, 2014.

I've been teaching privately for seven years in my small hometown in northern NY. My interests include finding and learning good songs, photography, and traveling.
