Right I hear ya. Picking up some videos or just watching some on youtube in conjunction with seeing a live teacher is always a good idea too. My issue with a lot of teachers is that they can tend to be fairly anal about the theory aspect and that can burn out a new player quickly. No one plays air guitar scales after all do they? Just make sure he/she knows which side their bread is buttered on and that it's your time to learn what you want.Thanks Hung and AJ for the additional info.
Hung - I will give your advice some thought. The reason why I think a live teacher is better than video is that I get motivated dealing with people...but I will give your idea some thought.
Thanks for the encouragement CT...and that's a great idea about starting a Caerf Band! :lol::lol::lol:Right on KL. Great hobby, I dabbled in that for a bit and may pick it up again going electric.
I unfortunately do not have enough knowledge or resources to help.
i just wanted to wish you the best in that endeavor and hope it all works out.
Perhaps start a caerf band and have SPs as groupies...live the dream bro,
If you are "going electric" think Dean or Ibanez, they are poly necks and don't produce that nasty "clunk" sound Fenders do that drive beginners nuts. Also remember a quality amp is nearly as important as the guitar. Oh and remember thick picks mean broken strings.Right on KL. Great hobby, I dabbled in that for a bit and may pick it up again going electric.
Online sites can get very confusing for beginners in my opinion. They are fine if you don't have access to a teacher I guess. I taught myself to play with an instructional book and picked up some very bad habits which were difficult to correct.
They have a decent reputation. They don't sell Dean's so don't really know anything about them.Don't know about Long & McQuade in TO, but the shop we have here in Cambridge has an AWESOME teacher.
