Consider Online Guitar Lessons!

How to Play Musical Instruments - The Magic of Fingers

In today’s fast paced world, where everyone is connected to the internet, corporations have discovered the use of the internet as a way to increase work efficiency. People just go online and take care of work tasks as needed at virtually any time of day and it doesn’t matter if it is the weekend. Using the internet for work, learning, leisure and social interactions has now become common place. There is a growing trend of people turning to the internet for lessons of all types. An interesting trend in online lessons is the free online guitar lesson subset of music lessons. Surprisingly enough, men between the ages of 35 to 60 are by far the largest group of people taking online guitar lessons. This phenomenon is driven more by time then money.

It is much more convenient to go online, log in to a training site and take an asynchronous lesson at any desired time then it is to have a lesson at a fixed address and a fixed time each week. This schedule flexibility is recognized and embraced particularly by the men who have taken advantage of the internet technologies of today. Now, an online guitar class comes with written material, audio clips to hear what it should sound like and video clips to see and learn the guitar playing techniques.

Almost everyone has turned to the internet in search for a remedy to a problem. The days when people would go to library or hire a tutor to learn a specific skill set are gone, and the internet has influenced every aspect of life. And why has it? Simply because it puts the information in your hands quicker than Michael Angelo Batio (fastest guitar player in the world) can play one note. So why shouldn’t learning to play guitar online be as easy? Think about it, if you are online reading this article, you already know the effectiveness of online learning. Online guitar lessons are no different, and most likely much more enjoyable than that online college course you just took?

Let’s face the facts; people today are too busy for fluff in their life. No one really has the time to “stop and smell the roses” anymore. And if you are one of these busy bodies, then I assume you don’t have the time for a personal tutor to learn guitar.

Or maybe you don’t want to spend the extra money to drive across town and fight the traffic the same time every week to pay big bucks for a personal tutor. I don’t know what sparked your interest with online guitar training. So instead of calling you up personally and asking you, I’ve highlighted a few reasons below why online guitar lessons are the best on the market:

You can learn literally anywhere you want! Learn in your comfort zone, be it in your favorite raggedy old couch with the rip in the middle you’ve had from high school or your spiffy computer chair made of rich leather, you can learn anywhere you want to. All you have to do is grab your mouse, turn up the audio and click away. It’s that simple.

It’s quick and easy. In the time it takes you to get up and go to the bathroom, you could be on your way to learning guitar. Second, the lessons are solely designed with you in mind, and the fact that you don’t have time to fool around; you want to take a lesson as your schedule allows. Today you might have a half hour to spend at 10:00 PM, after the kids are in bed, or you might only have 15 minutes of your lunch break to go online and read, watch a video, then back to work.

It’s better than a tutor. Guitar Chords tutors are expensive, some charging even $150.00 a lesson! Take from my experience, I’ve had a tutor, and found that it’s 1000 times cheaper than a tutor. What do you do if you don’t have the time to get a tutor? Most tutors operate during a certain number of set hours (usually 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.), so if you work all day, simply put, you are screwed. With online guitar training, if you get home at 2 a.m., you can click away and start learning Lynyrd Skynyrd’s chord pattern for “Simple Man”. The only limit to your training is yourself.

Avoid the embarrassment of learning in public. The number one fear of people is public humiliation. Why should you suffer through learning in a class or with a tutor if you don’t feel comfortable playing in front of others? It is human nature to feel anxiety when starting something new and uncharted, especially something as complex as guitar. Avoid the embarrassment and learn from the privacy of your home.

No matter how you stack the chips, online guitar training is simply better than a tutor. In fact, I just started trying out some online guitar lessons last month, and I learned more in one week than I did the entire semester when I took Beginning Guitar 101 at college. Maybe it was the anxiety factor, no one was ‘watching’ me repeatedly make mistakes, and I could focus completely on the lessons. Maybe it was because I learned whenever I wanted to, which usually ended up being around 11 p.m., when I was done with work and school homework. Either way, it was insanely cheaper than the class; I believe I paid $650.00 for the class and less than a 1/3 of that for my online training.
