Where to learn guitar?
You've made a quality decision. You've decided to learn how to play guitar.
It used to be that the only routes you had would be to either find a teacher in your area or try to learn out of a book.
Thus, people deciding where to learn were very limited in their choices.
Having a teacher can be a great experience. Many have learned this way and succeeded.
In the same light, others have found the experience expensive and frustrating.
Meeting one on one with a teacher is just another thing that can add to guitar students busy schedule.
If you are fortunate enough to get started when you are quite young, have parents with plenty of money to spend and all the time in the world, this is a great option.
While this option would be great for everyone teachers and students do not always work well together.
Trying several different teachers can be frustrating, time-consuming and expensive.
So what are your other options when deciding where to learn guitar?
If your extremely fortunate you are a guitar prodigy and can pick up any guitar and somehow tap into the universe and all of a sudden you are wowing people with your guitar virtuosity and utterly amazing genius. That would be great.
If you look at the background of most people like that someone in the family was a musician and made it so simple for them to figure out that they were getting the idea about things when they were maybe 2 years old. That's a great way to get wired into the guitar.
Most people don't have it that good.
