Lightbulb Talk to me about your guitar lessons.

I can't afford guitar lessons so I'd like to know what methods your teachers use. Books, websites, scales, etc.

A guitar tutor is more than just a teacher. Good ones can spot bad technique, see what level you are at and tailor lessons to you. None of which you will get from watching videos etc.

I second the justinguitar.com bid. I'd also add that books and websites and such can't really replace a guitar teacher. A teacher is more like a friend who's already walked the path you're about to tread.

Books and websites can help, but they can't effectively replace what a teacher brings to the table. That being said, I definitely don't believe that you MUST have a teacher to improve. That's not the case at all.

Try justinguitar and just browse around YouTube. There's plenty of material there to keep you busy.

As a teacher, I always suggest the following to my students:

A Good tuner and metronome
A good chord chart
and an exercise book like "Speed Mechanics for Lead Guitar" by Troy Stetina.

after that it's all about working on material that gets you amped up.

These days theres so many resources available. Countless website offering online guitar lessons in various styles, ebooks, tuition dvds etc. One on one tuition is obviously still the most ideal solution if you can afford it, but hourly rates are expensive, and there's plenty of other ways to learn.

Interestingly, about a 50:50 split of my students are one-on-one/online students, so its definitely getting more common to opt for the latter!
