How to Choose the Right Guitar Lessons for You

May 10, 2008
The guitar is one of the most flexible instruments in the world. You can play the blues, jazz, rock, and almost any other kind of music. It's no wonder therefore that almost all people want to learn how to strum the strings.

There are some who are truly gifted. After a while of self-studying, they can already play a variety of songs together with their guitar. Others, meanwhile, aren't as lucky. You can actually see them struggling for hours or even months. If you belong to the latter group, you have one more effective option: choose a guitar lesson.

Here are the different techniques in choosing the right guitar lesson for you:

1. Stick with the level you're in. If you haven't played guitar before, then you have to choose the beginner level. If you want to advance with your techniques, you also have to select the advanced level. Choosing one inappropriately will definitely spell disaster for you-unless you're a born guitar genius.

2. Choose self-taught audio and video guitar lessons. If you want to obtain greater flexibility of your time and in a shoe-string budget, then you can simply opt for guitar lessons in video and audio format. Keep in mind that this is not a formal training, which means you really don't have anybody telling you if you're doing things or not. You just have to depend on your gut feel and perhaps the reaction of your audience once you start playing the guitar. The good thing about this is you can bring your lessons everywhere you go, and they are absolutely free.

3. Look for an online guitar lesson program. There are already numerous websites that are offering guitar playing modules to their students. They also have experts with them, who can guide you during difficult periods in your lessons. They may cost few dollars, but if you're truly serious about learning, then you wouldn't definitely mind spending some of your money for it.

4. Download a software. Besides modules, you can also download a number of software that will help you how to play the guitar. They have both audio and video presentations, audio samples, and tabs that you can utilize while you're practicing playing. You can make use of this even when you don't have an Internet connection.

5. Attend a class. If you're still in school, you can ask around if there are special classes for guitar playing. It will save you time, money, and effort as you can participate every time your classes end. It's going to be fun too as you have several people who can offer their opinion about your guitar playing skills.
