    Hello John, I’ve been working on your lessons for quite a while now. I cannot tell you how happy I am with how they are structured. I love the fact you give us basics with a few chords. We can then take the information and format and apply them to other chords to make us more rounded players. I teach guitar at a school and share your techniques, style and youtube videos with my students. You inspire them greatly. Keep up the super work. I will keep in touch. Take Care. Brian

    Dear John,
    Awesome work on your songs man! I had started learning guitar,
    but as I don’t get much time I can’t learn or practice it. Neither can I attend my
    guitar classes,nor can I play finely! Just checked your song “The Most Evolved”
    on youtube! I just fell in love with your style of playing. You have inspired me back
    to continue learning guitar! I want to be a fine and a fluent guitarist like you!

    Dear John,
    I am going to sign up to download Guitar Pro TAB and tutorial of songs: The Most Evolved and Tempested
    But I can not find Tempested (Serrano, Juan) in your Full List of currently available TAB / Sheet Music Titles.
    May I get access to these songs ?
    Best regards,

      You can get the sheet music and tabs for “Tempestad” in Juan Serrano’s excellent book called ‘Flamenco Basic Techniques’

    This should be far more active with member student comments and participation. John’s lessons present a great opportunity to learn Spanish guitar correctly. I must say, I have continued on through these lessons, now into arpeggios, without any extra communication with the teacher. The lesson progressions are that well thought out. Even at this early stage, John’s foundation lessons have build meter as well as finger independence. So if this old Marine can do this, with great pleasure, anyone world wide can jump in and tune up. Embarrassed to be the only poster here. SpCedar (Mike)

    Just a quick thanks for creating these lessons. Your short, clear and progressive exercises are very effective. I’m in to the second week and some confusion from nine months of hard work on a variety of You Tube lessons, are suddenly cleared up. I’ve memorized a few Spanish phrases and one song using tabs, but starting again at the very beginning under your direction, with metronome, corrects all the poor pacing and interval (clearly picked and spaced notes) problems. Safe to say, I’m aboard for the full voyage John. Keep up the great work. Mike

    Hi John,

    It was a pleasure to hear you in that little concert on Fisherman’s Wharf SF. It was just Fantastic. I enjoy every single note that night.

    Your CD’s are great, some red wine on the balcony with my Wife and I just feel the Andalusia Mediterranean Sea Breeze.

    Thank you.

    Hi john,

    you’re awesome, and right after I’m done with this comment i will sign up. I love your music. I was also wondering if you could post sheet music for “mais que nada” it’s not flamenco but it’s worth playing it.

    thanks john.

    Hi John,

    I’ve always been a fan of your playing. However, I have a question. Does your lessons include teaching how to read music tabs? And is it necessary for me to learn how to read music to apply for you lessons? Because I never had any classes nor lessons on how to read musical tabs and I always face problems learning songs, I mimic the style instead.


    • John
      10 months ago

      Hi Mohanned,

      Thanks for your message. It is not necessary to read either standard notation or tablature to learn from my online video lessons since I teach from the absolute beginning. I certainly encourage learning how to read music, but it is not necessarily for becoming a better guitarist.

      I wish you the Best!

    Hi John,

    Great playing and lessons! How well do you think some of these spanish techniques would go on a Godin nylon string guitar as opposed to just a regular classical guitar?

    thank you,


    • John
      11 months ago

      Hi Pat,
      The techniques will go just fine with a Godin. Godins are typically easier to play than regular classical guitars because of the thinner neck and lower action.

    A friend has just introduced me to your music – beautiful! Is there any way of getting the sheet music for the violin part/parts in Aurora Borealis?
    With thanks

      Hi Melanie,

      Good question. I think I might actually have the string parts, somewhere. They were arranged by Minna Choi of the Magic Magic Orchestra. I will try to find them and put them up at my main website Also, contact me here, to remind me in a couple of weeks if I forget! Cheers!

    You are wonderful person. After seeing your Youtube vedios (tempested and Most evolved) I brought a Guitar at age 34. Now I need to find time to learn. I will subscribe soon. I brought the one with metal strings. That’s the only one I get in India
    Thanks a lot for making my life more musical

      Welcome Rahash! So glad you have taken up to learn guitar! You can still practice with metal strings until you can find a classical guitar. -John

    Is this a shake down? Why can I not log in to this site even though I paid my subscription. I will cancel my credit card payment tomorrow. Sickening.

    • John

      Hi Phil, this certainly isn’t a shake down! I run the site myself. I am sorry you had problems logging in. A problem that people have been having is that Hotmail is filtering out the email containing the login info. Please check your spam for folder and add to your safe list in hotmail to ensure you get emails about your account. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

    Hi John,

    I recently purchased your lessons from for $47, if I had come across this website I would have subscribe to this first. Anyways, I am still going to subscribe but do you think its better to complete the lessons from and then start this? I am not a beginner to guitar or spanish guitar, but never learnt the correct way, I am all self taught, but by following your videos I am learning a lot of stuff in a very structured way. Thanks.

      Hi Ati,

      Thanks for signing up! and are the same website. I just changed the name permanently to “” You will see when you enter the address “” it just takes you to “”

      The beginning guitar lesson series is pretty much the same. Now with the monthly subscription I am including song tutorials and more advanced lessons. So I would say finish going through the beginner lessons and then sign up for the “Full Membership” that offers access to all my sheet music plus advanced tutorials.

      All the Best,

      John H. Clarke

    Just love to hear you play spanish guitar, would love to learn how to play but not sure how much talent is required to play for a beginner. Is there a sample video lesson I can watch to see if I can understand enough to even learn how to play. You make it look so easy when you play with little effort but I know it takes real talent to do what you do. Thanks for your reply. Gary

    • John

      Hi Gary! Thanks for stopping by. For a beginner you don’t actually need any unusual talent! What you need is patience with yourself and a regular daily practice routine. Learning music is a lifelong investment in yourself. I have a lot of lessons for beginners so I suggest signing up and see how you like it. You can cancel anytime. Cheers! -John

    Hello John,

    I want to just buy the tabs for 1 song, may be a video lesson to go with it. You should offer this type of individual pieces instead of a subscription.


    • John

      Thanks for your comment. I offer the subscription at a very reasonable rate and you can cancel anytime and still keep the tabs/sheet music you downloaded. I hope you will sign up and learn a lot!

    Discovered you this morning – can’t stop listening to your playing.
    I read music – haven’t got a clue about tabs – but I guess I could learn. Returning to play the guitar after a ten year absence , so a bit like a beginner right now – technically, I need help!
