How To Learn The Guitar Using The Best Guitar Instruction Courses

Apr 26, 2008
If your a beginning guitar player you may be wondering how to go about learning your new instrument. Well if you have done any kind of research on guitar lessons or guitar instruction courses you will no doubt realize there is a sea of information available.

Being a guitar player of the past 20 years I have come across countless methods on learning to play have seen less than accurate information regarding the instrument.

If you are thinking about buying a course ask yourself these questions.
-what kind of guitar music do I eventually want to play?
-what kind of learning methods do I respond to the best?
-where can I find information that will teach me the right way?

When you ask yourself these questions, you are really asking yourself, "what am I looking for and what will teach me the best way"

Finding the right course is vital to the development of a guitar student, not only will you progress faster, but you will not have to backtrack and re learn any bad habits you may have developed from learning the wrong way.

Luckily now thanks to the internet, there is now a wealth of information, some of it good and some of it great... and some of it blatantly wrong.

Back in the days before the internet if you wanted to play the guitar you could go one of two ways. Either you could learn by having an experienced player teach you, of if that wasn't possible, you could buy a book and learn on your own.

These two methods are still great options, but they do have there drawbacks. Learning from a book is a great idea, however if you don't actually have someone with you to show you exactly how the music is to be played, progress will be slow, reading information and using diagrams is great but it can never truly replace a real live instructor, which leads me on to the second point.

Finding a guitar teacher is far more ideal, but can be expensive, but what's more concerning is the fact that many guitar "teachers" cannot actually teach. I have seen many great guitarists who call themselves guitar teachers, when all they can really do is confuse a poor student and show off.

Of course the other side of the coin is that there are many great guitar teachers out there, you just have to be careful at which one you decide to go with, if you have a guitar teacher already and are not making any progress, it may be time to find a new teacher.

The third option now are online guitar instruction courses. These in my opinion are ideal. Not only are they very inexpensive but using video,audio,interaction and knowledge forums is the best way to advance quickly.

If you are thinking about buying a guitar course then me advice to you, is to read up as much as you can about any particular guitar course you are thinking of purchasing, and not just recommendations on a sales page, but from actual people who have used the course and have benefited from it, that is a great indication that a guitar course works.
