Why Guitar Video Lessons Have Increased In Popularity

Sep 10, 2008
Since getting my first bass guitar, nothing could tear me away from it for the first few months. A year later, I am still learning to play; however, one thing that has changed with precaution is that I allow selected few to play with it. Provided that I am there to supervise and there are no finger print marks left on the front! Taking pride in your guitar is just one of the side effects of purchasing one - after all you have spent a great deal on taking lessons and playing until your fingers are purple.

Paying for lessons can be extremely expensive, especially if you live on a tight budget. Young people who buy lessons, tend to feel impatient when learning to play the guitar, or simply cannot afford one-to-one lessons. Others may feel that they need to be good at playing immediately after purchasing, without realising that with this guitar playing comes plenty of strumming, finger techniques and researching online guitar video lessons.

Guitar video lessons are basically exactly what it is, they offer plenty of learning opportunities without charging a lot of money. These can be downloaded for free or for a small price if there is a specific learning technique that you require. Some websites and companies offer a complete learning pack in which people are able to learn on a daily basis or as often as they like. A complete set can be ordered onto DVD or downloaded on to the pc - in doing this the learner can get a sneak preview of the lesson before purchasing.

The difference between one-to-one interaction and guitar video lessons is that with the latter there is no tutor checking to see if your fingering techniques are in the right place or pointing out any mistakes that you may or may not make. The whole learning process is about trying to become familiar with playing the guitar of your own free will. Learning various techniques on the guitar will not necessarily make you the greatest guitar player, but it will help you on the way.

Watching someone play is the most effective way of learning, rather than reading from a book, as you will need to see an example of this technique and hear how it will sound once you see it in action. People who observe guitar lessons visually are more likely to pick it up quickly without any problems. However, reading up on techniques is also a good way of understanding the playing techniques; therefore, you can use this in conjunction with the video lessons. Often these provide details on read tab music and memorising notes.

The guitar is one of the most popular instruments available for people to learn to play, therefore it comes as no surprise to say that there are hundreds of video lessons available both online and on DVD. These have been readily available on video for many years, making it possible for everybody of various backgrounds to learn how to play. Video lessons help the learner to see what the right playing technique is and what bad habits to avoid. These are also much more easier than reading from a book, hence making it more interesting.
