There are normally 2 methods to learn guitar, Online and Offline. Maybe 10 or 15 years ago this was not like this. Back then it was necessary to look for a tutor willing to teach guitar or, we could have joined a music school, which is still a great alternative to learn how to play if time and money are not an issue.
Now, if you decide to learn the guitar online, it is very likely that you will wonder what to expect from a video course. Well, in my opinion, this courses are very good, of course, there are many teaching programs out there, and more than often there is not just one top program, but there are quite a few that can actually teach you to play guitar.
You can expect, from these video methods, very specific and very good explanations about the technique you are learning. For example, if you are taking a lesson about Tuning Up your guitar, the video will teach you very slowly how to get it done, and it is goint to repeat, within the lesson, how to do it. And here comes the beauty of it, let’s say that you do not want to see the explanation again, you simply move ahead and your tutor can’t get upset.
Another great thing that guitar lessons online offer, is that you improve more quickly than if you join a music school, because your improvement will not be based on the slowest person in the class. The problem is that by not having a personal tutor, you won’t be able to ask a question and get an response right away, however, almost all of these courses offer 24/7 support, to get a professional answer from an expert.
When teaching yourself the guitar with video lessons you not only decide what lessons to skip and what lessons to take over and over, based on the results you see. Now, the idea of having a method is to stick to it, but since you have to be self motivated, you are able to decide what lessons to do, this way, you will not get bored. That being said, that is in reality a common problem when learning to play guitar. Sometimes students try to move too fast, that they get frustrated and quit.
Usually this type of methods are divided in beginners, intermediate and advanced lessons; I do not know if all of them are like that, I have not bought them all, but, the ones I have had the opportunity to work with are indeed a powerful tool to learn how to play and to improve my techniques.
So, you get very good explanations, friendly support, you get to learn at your own pace, and probably the best part for a lot of people, you do not need to move from your home to get them. I never get tired of saying this, it is really crucial to practice every day, especially when you begin to learn. Good luck and have a nice day.
