When I began learning how to play guitar years ago we had very limited options in terms of good training. I am probably showing my age but we did not need the net in those days and the technology that is available today in guitar teaching software.
One thing I have learned in my own many years playing is that folks learn how to play at different paces and the type of a in home tutor simply may not match what works for the student. This often caused additional sessions and so the student could comprehend what had been taught and of course each in home guitar lesson is one more cost.
I basically started learning how to play practicing the guitar like lots of people within their teens by going out with friends who were learning as well and trying to find out the notes and chords of well known songs.
Years later I began looking around at what was available in the manner of guitar teaching software and tools because my teenage son decided he wanted to master to play guitar as well teach to one. Even though I was a fairly decent self taught player I knew that I needed my son to master proper techniques that I merely couldn’t show him.
I was simply amazed at the vast quantity of training available online but quickly figured out there was a number of guys like me making videos which were likely to coach you on just how to play your preferred songs. The problem is learning how to simply play your preferred songs is not really learning just how to play practicing the guitar the best way.
Finding good guitar teaching software was quite a daunting task but even as we decided on which we were going to make use of I was amazed at what I discovered playing although I have been playing for years. Plenty of years.
Now we can sit around and not merely select songs to master and play because we understand chord structure and all of those other things that allow a proficient musician to listen and learn a song by ear. You start recognizing notes, chords and playing styles that you can emulate easier by truly understanding just how to play the guitar.
