I question I often hear asked is “what are the best guitar lessons?” That is a tough question to answer since it depends on who is asking. A simple answer would be the best guitar lessons are the ones that yield the most results for the student. The whole thing is that we are all different individuals with different needs and different situations. I will always say that private one on one lessons are the best, but that may not always be an available option for everyone. A person’s time schedule, budget, and geographical location can all be factors in what medium they can use to take guitar lessons. The following article with cover some of the different personal scenarios and the mediums that could be used for the best guitar lessons for them.
*I am just a kid: If you are a kid under the age of 16 you are at the mercy of your parents. Your parents get to decide what the best guitar lessons are for you and unfortunately that is sometimes decided by factors such as price, location, and available time. This is not always the best criteria for choosing the best guitar lessons, but until you are old enough to get yourself to and from the lessons and pay for them, you are at there mercy.
*I am a workaholic: If you work a lot of hours or more than one job, scheduling can be tough for getting into guitar lessons. Most guitar teachers teach from music stores or there homes and have to limit the hours to can teach, usually 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM, so this may not be an option for you. Don’t worry though; today we have many other options to accommodate your schedule. There are many good qualified guitar instructors teaching online via webcam on sites like Skype. Many times you can schedule lessons at off hours times, either because they offer those time slots or because they live on the other side of the world it’s 9 AM when you are available at 3 AM your time. There are even lessons from famous guitarists available in this medium.
*I live off the fat of the land: Okay, you are a hermit, a ranch hand, or a farmer and you live in the middle of no where. The nearest music store is 75 miles away and there are no private teachers in your area and they have not brought the internet out to where you are yet. Do not worry; you can still learn to play the guitar. Sometimes the best guitar lessons are what are available to you. There are many books that have been published that you can buy to learn to play the guitar. There are also many guitar instructional DVD’s that can be purchased as well.
*I’m broke: Even if you are on a limited income and can not afford to take guitar lessons there are still options for you. The internet is flooded with guitar lesson videos, many of which are free on sites like YouTube.
The best guitar lessons sometimes just plain boil down to what is available to you based on your personal situation.
