Many “wanna be” guitarists think it looks easy and they can learn it on their own and many do. But developing the best guitar methods requires good instruction which can also cut the learning time.
Many guitarists who are self-taught often develop bad habits that have to be later unlearned. Once it’s a habit, any habit, it’s difficult to shake off or change.
A few years ago, you either learned on your own with the help of books or watched others play on movies or videos. But today is totally different. You now have your choice of online lessons and apps to help you learn.
Now, it’s a matter of choice. Who has the best lesson? Who has the best price? Where can you get the most help? I support TrueFire for several reasons. One of the main reasons is that they emphasize technique, first and foremost.s
Back To Guitar Lessons
One of the major problems people have with learning an instrument, but especially guitars, is patience. All of the books, videos, and online lessons emphasize taking it slow and thoroughly learning the basics to establish the best guitar methods.
No matter what you are trying to learn, be it an instrument, how to write, or anything else, learning the basics gives you the building blocks to continue and, possibly, be really good.
Many novice guitar players want to start shredding solos right from the start. Trust me, it won’t happen. Learn the basics.
Watch any really good guitarist. Style doesn’t matter. They all have the best guitar methods. They have put in the time and effort to learn the basics.
When dealing with any company, local or online, I go by their ratings. I started supporting another company, which I won’t name, but they made it very difficult to quit. One review I read stated that the information received in the first lesson was not helpful.
All of my purchases from TrueFire have met or exceeded my expectations. The beginning lesson in all learning paths, or playing style, is free.
I wasn’t sure when they said it was free. How many times have you gone to order something online that says it’s free, but you have to enter your credit card number or when you get to the bottom line there is shipping & handling?
I started to order something the other day that was touted as being free. When I got to the bottom line shipping & handling was around $40. What’s up with that?
