But in order to learn you are going to need a great teacher to walk you through the steps of guitar playing and get you past the initial frustrations you will encounter. The fact is, most guitar teachers don't really know how to teach beginners, they think in a totally 'logical' approach to teaching, which is NOT the best way to teach people guitar. If people were like robots and we (the teachers) could just install into your brain the lesson/song/technique then the 'logical' approach would work, but this is not the case. The fact is, is that human beings need to be taught in a fun and easy way, or else you will feel like it's too hard to learn guitar and think you lack the natural talent and just can't do it. It is NOT your fault that you may or have struggled with learning guitar, you just didn't have someone to guide you in a fun and easy way.
There has NEVER been a person in the history of guitar playing that one day picked up a guitar and started playing. The truth is, every guitarists that you've ever heard made the choice to become the great (or good) guitarist they are today. Whether you want to become the greatest guitarist in the world or play for fun, the first step is making the choice to learn guitar and then finding the right teacher to walk you through the process of learning guitar to reach your goals as efficiently and effectively as possible.
If you ever used YouTube or any other website then you've probably realized that you can't solely rely on it! The reason is that the internet can't diagnose what your strengths and weaknesses are! Chances are if you're looking something up online it won't be directly related to your current challenges. Not only that but not all of the information on the internet is good or accurate!
The thing about most guitar teachers out there is that most aren't truly passionate about bringing YOU or any of their students results! Most guitar teachers are really only interested in getting paid. Most are burnt out, unmotivated and negative! This outlook and attitude can get YOU feeling unmotivated and discouraged about your own guitar playing! Don't take lessons from these teachers! You need to pick someone who is passionate about teaching and helping you reach your goals!
Learning guitar is INCREDIBLY difficult to learn on your own! If people could learn on their own then there would be no point in music instructors! However, there are many music instructors in the world! If people could learn music on there own or even learn out of books the world would be FILLED with many great musicians! However, this is not the case! The reason why there are many 'average' musicians instead of EXTRAORDINARY musicians is partly because those musicians didn't want to invest into themselves and seek the best possible teacher to help them reach their goals! Not you! If you were one of these musicians you wouldn't be here reading this! :)
Are you ready to get started?... Good...
