And no, I don’t mean the word, I mean the website. Which is a good deal less sinister than its namesake.

Eldritch’s purpose is to help people teach each other how to play guitar, at any skill level. What form exactly this takes remains to be seen, and over time it’ll grow. But either way, Eldritch is meant to help people help each other learn, and generally just be a big hippy drum circle with a lot of people singing Kumbaya (with guitars instead of drums).

For what purpose?

When I started playing guitar, being a somewhat shy and awkward computer nerd and having no idea how to find someone to teach me how to play, I naturally turned first to the internet as my teacher. As I explored what was out there, I had the impression that there were some very talented people trying to put out learning material and teach others online, but that it was all very disorganized and spread thin. Some videos on YouTube, the odd personal website, people trying to sell instructional DVDs. That sort of thing. Centralized resources of knowledge were few, and those that existed had problems, primarily that they relied heavily of things like having a computer listen to you play and give feedback. …



An abomination from the beyond the stars. Moonlights as a website for helping people teach and learn guitar.
