My New Book: Songs of Wales for Fingerstyle Guitar
I’m thrilled to announce that my new book ‘Songs of Wales for Fingerstyle Guitar’ has now been published by Mel Bay Publications!
This is a project that has been in the works since 2019, and it’s been a labour of love. The book features a diverse collection of 17 Welsh and Celtic pieces, ranging from ancient harp music, fiddle tunes, lullabies, hymns and detailed male voice choir arrangements, all arranged for solo fingerstyle guitar.

Check out my recent article in Acoustic Guitar Magazine!
This article takes an in-depth look at some of the techniques and theory behind traditional Welsh music, and is accompanied by a 25-minute video lesson.
The lesson features a number of exercises and techniques relating to the style, before culminating in a fingerstyle arrangement of the traditional Welsh march, Men of Harlech. You can access it via this link.
Luke Edwards BA(Hons)
I offer private one-to-one guitar lessons through a variety of platforms.
Lessons are suitable for all abilities and ages, and are entirely bespoke focusing on your goals, and what you want to learn. I teach from beginner guitar lessons all the way up to diploma and degree standard.
I can use my many years of experience as a guitarist and musician to help you escape countless avoidable mistakes and hours of frustration, and make your learning as enjoyable and efficient as possible.
Having an experienced teacher can cut years off your learning time by enabling you to play the correct way from day one, making it the easiest way to learn guitar – alongside offering a more personal and rewarding experience.
I teach a wide array of musical styles including acoustic guitar, electric guitar, classical guitar, jazz guitar, celtic guitar, bluegrass guitar, and my speciality, fingerstyle guitar.
Been playing for a while, but feel stuck in a rut?
I can offer invaluable guidance to fix bad playing habits or guide you in a new direction.
Want to broaden your repertoire?
I can teach you new pieces and material, and even custom arrange pieces that you’ve always wanted to learn.
Want to improve your technical ability?
We can focus on powerful exercises and techniques, and proper practise to get your chops up to speed.
Whatever it is you want to achieve, I can help get you there quicker.

Video Call Lessons
Learn from the comfort of your own home! In addition to traditional face to face lessons I also offer video call lessons via Skype, Zoom, Whatsapp video call, or a platform of your own choice.
Video lessons function identically to in-person lessons, with material emailed over prior to the lesson and supplemental video material provided afterward to ensure that you always have something to work on.
All you need to get started is:
- a phone, tablet, or computer with a camera
- internet connection
- and your guitar!
All lessons include:
- unlimited post-lesson support via WhatsApp or email; if you have any burning questions in-between lessons or just want some feedback on your playing you can send me a message or video and I’ll respond with advice
- custom arrangements and scores; if there’s a piece you have always wanted to play I can write it out arranged at a level you can manage
- follow-up recap videos; bespoke recap videos summing up what was covered in the lesson to help you get the most out of each session
- a custom practise plan; personalised practise guide telling you what to work on to meet your goals
Enquire through the contact form below to arrange your no-commitment £10 trial video lesson!
I aim to add as much value to your lessons as possible:
- All lessons are bespoke. I individually create your own course to best fit your needs and goals. Is there a particular song that you’ve always wanted to learn? I can arrange it in a format that suits your abilities and fits in with the techniques we’re currently working on. We can cover any style or aspect of music that you’d like.
- Is there a technique you’ve always aspired to or struggled with? I will craft you bespoke exercises and workouts to help you nail it.
- All lessons feature unlimited post-lesson support via WhatsApp or text. If you’ve got burning questions or are stuck on something specific in between lessons, you can send me a message or video and I’ll respond with feedback and guidance free of charge!
“Luke is an outstanding guitar player and his passion shines through when you watch and listen to him. He feels every moment of each piece he plays, creating not just a performance, but an exceptional experience. This fervour also translates beautifully when recording Luke for songs and scores, which makes him a ‘go-to’ player to work with. I have had the pleasure of watching/playing with Luke many times and not once had a dull moment. He is very knowledgeable, patient and adaptable. He is also a very genuine and good-natured person, I would recommend him to anyone!”

Please note, I operate under a 24 hour cancellation policy.
Due to a high number of last minute lesson cancellations I now require at least 24 hours of notice to cancel a lesson booking. Last minute cancellations waste valuable time in my schedule that would otherwise be filled by another student, and cost me a significant amount in revenue per week.
There is also significant preparation put in prior to each lesson which is then wasted by such cancellations.
As a result, lessons cancelled with less than the required 24 hours of notice will incur the full fee of the wasted lesson.
