One question I often get asked is, where do I get guitar lessons?
When I started out to learn to play the guitar I had to primarily teach myself how to play and figure out where I could get guitar lessons.
However I was lucky in the fact that my dad could play and he taught me some of the basic chords to get me started and I went from there.
So what I did was listen to records of some of the guitar players and bands that I wanted to play like, and I would try to imitate what they were playing on their guitars.
Now this is not an easy way to learn to play the guitar, you can’t see what they are playing or what chords they are using. When i started you could go the music store and buy some guitar lesson books to get you started, however they were hard to understand and slow to work with.
So when I’m asked where do I get guitar lessons? Here are some of your options. You can get books from the music store, or you can take lessons at your music store,or you can hire a private teacher. However I feel one of the best ways to get started today is to learn from video lessons.
With video you will not only learn your guitar lessons but you will be able to see what your teacher is playing and how they are doing it so you can play along.
Here are some benefits of using video to learn to play the guitar.
1. Learn from home
2. Learn at you own pace
3. Actually see whats being played
4. See the finger positions of the chords
5. Hear whats being played
6. Pause the lesson
7. Replay your lessons as often as you want
8. You will become a better guitar player
9. You will learn in less time
10.You will be able to jam along with some of your favourite tunes faster than you think.
So, were do I get guitar lessons?
Well you can search the Internet for a good video training course just beware their are lot’s of poor courses that only teach the basics and are hard to learn.
Here is one high quality course that I highly recommend, they use pro guitar players and teachers,they offer free lessons, and you will learn to play the guitar the proper way form the beginning. Take a few minutes and read all about this course.
