Guitar Lessons - The Pros and Cons
« on: September 29, 2009, 08:38:36 AM »
Hi Every Body,
                          How are you all? Making music though playing an instrument is one of the most rewarding things in the world. The sense of self satisfaction you feel by making great music whenever you want to, cannot really be compared to anything. One of the best instruments to learn when you want to make music is the guitar. Its relatively cheap, takes up little space, you can play a huge variety of music, and it's cool as well!

So how would one go about learning the guitar? You have 3 choices:

   1. Pay a personal guitar teacher
   2. Buy a guitar learning book
   3. Use video guitar lessons

Paying for personal lessons is good, but can be very expensive in the long run and you may find it difficult to fit the lessons into your day's schedule, since you have to fix the exact time of the lessons with your teacher in advance.

Guitar teaching books are the worst option, due to the simple fact that it's impossible to learn an instrument by reading about it. You have to hear the notes being played, hear the rhythm, see the hand move from one chord to the next, etc. Unfortunately, a book just cannot convey these things.

Video guitar lessons, whether downloaded from the Internet or bought on DVD are a very efficient and effective way of learning to play the guitar. Why?

    * Relatively cheap, a whole line of video guitar lessons will probably cost you less than 2-3 hours at a personal guitar teacher.
    * You can play whenever you feel like it, whether its midnight, 11 am or 12 pm. This is a huge advantage over a personal guitar teacher, in that the only person you have to make an appointment with, is yourself.
    * Good quality video guitar lessons are designed to give all the knowledge of the video teacher to you. They are edited and well thought through, so you only get the best advice. This is great, since during personal lessons, the teacher might forget to mention something, play something wrong by accident, etc.
    * Very good quality guitar lessons will employ multiple cameras to give you close-ups of both hands of the guitar teacher, so you never miss a thing. They might also display animated tabs and chord diagrams as well, making it easy to reference a chord during a lesson.
    * Best of all, they can be rewound at any time or played again later for no extra charge, unlike a personal tutor.

In conclusion, it is safe to say, that video guitar lessons are one of the most efficient means of learning the guitar at beginner to intermediate stage. You can find a wide selection of video guitar lessons on the Internet, which can conveniently be viewed at the moment of purchase via download. You can also purchase guitar teaching DVDs at your local music shop, they will probably be slightly more expensive than on-line guitar lessons, because of the cost of producing the DVDs, their packaging and shipping.

Best Regards........
