Comparison: Guitar Lessons for Beginners

September 16th, 2009

Many beginner guitarists believe that the only way they can learn guitar is through reading theory and doing exercises in books, or by paying $20-$50/hour for private lessons.

The trouble with this logic is that these same people frequently send emails.

“What does that have to do with it?”

Well, quite a bit actually…let me explain: A mere 15-20 years ago, the quickest way to send someone a written message was to hand write a letter and send it to them by postal mail. Now, the vast majority of us simply type an email, click “Send”, and the person on the other end can see it in a matter of seconds.

My point is that things have changed from the Internet, and guitar lessons are no different.

You do NOT have to sit in the same room as your instructor to take lessons, even if you’re a beginner! In fact, because teachers can record well-organized video lessons, then let 1,000′s of students watch the videos, they can charge a LOT less money for their services!

So, if you are searching for the best way to learn to play guitar, be sure to consider taking lessons online. I just finished writing a more in-depth article comparing the various ways to learn guitar, if you’re interested:
