I think online guitar lessons are great! Unfortunately they are not for everyone. Ask yourself a few questions if you're thinking of signing up for online lessons. 1 What is your learning style? Learning how to play guitar is easy once you understand your learning style. Are you the kind of person that needs someone to push you to practice or to keep focused on tasks? Online guitar lessons for beginners may be a difficult one for you? You'll have to remember to practice, no one will know whether or not you are doing your work.
You have to remember, there will be nobody checking up on your work. Plus, it is very hard to play the guitar when you just first starting out, for some it can be quite painful. Your hand will be put into positions they never have had to be in before.
Also, the tips of your fingers will really hurt and possibly blister until calluses are formed (depending on how dedicated you are). 2 What does your budget look like? Can you afford to spend a $100 a month? Then your best choice might be private guitar lessons. Some might think it's too expensive. . However, you will have undivided attention and have someone to show you the right way to hold the guitar and how to press on the strings correctly. Plus they can corrects any mistakes you make right away. After you have taken a few months worth of lessons then you can start taking the Online guitar lessons.
You have to remember that the hardest part of learning the guitar is building calluses in your fingers, which you will have by this time, so learning the guitar from now on will be easy, and you are less likely to quit. 3 How fast is your computer? Do you have a high speed internet connection, like DSL or Cable? If not you won't be able to learn the guitar online. Good online guitar lessons, like Jamplay and GuitarTricks, are filmed in a High Definition, and if you want to watch them you will need at the bare minimum these things I just mentioned above.
